  • Round

Our associates are skilled at identifying face shapes and helping you narrow your choices and find something that looks and feels great.

Stylish and Protective Lenses for Glasses and Sunglasses

While not the first thing everyone thinks about in terms of style, the lenses on glasses and sunglasses definitely play a role.  Some common features to look ask your Brighton optometrist about include

  • Bifocal, Trifocal, and Progressive Lenses -- These help those who struggle with seeing near, far and intermediate distances. Progressive lenses are the most advanced of these and can help with the transition between these distances without lines.
  • Hi-Index Lenses - These are a good option for those who have strong prescriptions because they are made from light weight materials
  • Photochromic Lenses are popular with those who spend time in the sunlight, because they darken or lighten automatically depending on the level of sunlight
  • Polarized lenses are a popular feature in both prescription and non-prescription sunglasses because they are able to reduce glare off of surfaces making it easier to see.
  • Polycarbonate Lenses are lauded for their toughness. They are impact resistant and have built in UV filters to protect overall eye health

Lens Coatings

In addition to protection that is built into many of the lenses we carry at Brighton Eye Associates, there are various coatings available that help to make life a little easier including

  • Anti-reflective to reduce glare, reflections and protects from scratches and smudges
  • Bluelight reduction - to protect against the bluelight in computer, cellphone, and television screens that can upset sleep patterns
  • Scratch Resistant Coating
  • UV protection blocks out 98-100% of UVA and UVB rays
