LENS TYPES: HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR LENSES

We want you to be comfortable no matter what lenses you choose. To ensure this, all our single-vision lenses are 100% UV blocking and come with both scratch resistant and anti-reflective coatings.

We offer three types of lenses to provide you with a truly durable product that is comfortable enough to wear all day and night.

High Index Plastic Roll-over Definition 
Offering the highest index, and thinner by 60% over a standard plastic lens, High Index Plastic is the best option for people with stronger prescriptions. This lens type can correct vision with a lot less material which enables the lens to be much lighter, thinner and way more comfortable when wearing for long periods of time.   

Polycarbonate Roll-over Definition
Polycarbonate lenses are impact-resistant, and thinner and lighter by about 20% than a standard CR39 plastic lens. This is a great lens choice for kids and people on the go. They are also a great choice for people with strong prescriptions, because they don’t add thickness to the lens when correcting vision.

Standard Roll-over Definition 
CR-39 – CR-39, or Columbia Resin #39, is an allyl diglycol carbonate (ADC), otherwise known as a plastic polymer. These lenses are lighter than glass lenses so they are less likely to slip down your nose. They are a great choice if you want durability at a truly affordable price. 

 

At this time, we are offering single-vision lenses. These lenses use the same prescription power across the entire lens and are perfect for correcting near sightedness (myopia) and far-sightedness (hyperopia).

Please note: If you require anything other than Single Vision Lenses for your on-line order of eyewear or sunglasses, we encourage you to work with your local eye care professional (ECP) to ensure that the nuances of your prescription are properly measured and filled.

We are happy to work with you and your ECP to get you into the Väri frame of your choice while ensuring that your prescription and eye-health needs are being met properly.
