Single Vision :  

  • Commonly used for Visual Correction either, close work, distance or intermediate tasks.
  • No lines and has the prescription over the whole lens.

Bifocals :

  • Has a dual purpose, commonly used for Distance and Near tasks.
  • Has a distinctive line that separates the top from the bottom.

 Progressive Addition : 

  • Reflect your natural vision enabling you to see clearly objects in the distance, look ahead to view things at arm’s length such as a computer and drop your gaze downward to read and write comfortably.
  • Technologically advanced design that enables you to see clearer and sharper than any other lens design.
  • No lines. Prescription gradually changes as you look downward in the lens.
  • At I-Care, we use the most advanced Progressive lens designs that offer the widest fields of vision at all distances.

 

 Extended focus: 

  • Benefits of extended focus lenses correct both your near and intermediate vision.
  • Provide greater versatility and freedom than normal reading glasses. 
  • Enjoy clear sight for reading, cooking, desk and computer work.

Hi Index :

  • Enable those with stronger Prescriptions to achieve a more aesthetically appealing look(no more coke bottle glasses)
  • Lighter and thinner than standard lenses.
  • UV protection is also inherent in these lenses
  • Aspheric designs offer wider fields of vision as compared to standard single vision lenses.

Photosensitive: 

  • Continuously filter and optimise the amount of light your eyes receive, reducing glare, eye fatigue and strain.
  • Block 100% of UV rays.
  • Work with virtually all prescriptions in single vision, progressive and bifocal designs and materials.
  • They are appropriate for children, adults and especially for those with a heightened sensitivity to light.
  • Transitions lenses are compatible with all anti-reflective (AR) coatings, and perform even better when combined with AR.
  • Two most common types are Transitions and Drivewear which is a polarized photosensitive lens.

Polarizing:

  • Polarised lenses eliminate glare from horizontal surfaces such as water, roads, pavements, snow, sand and reflective surfaces such as car exteriors.
  • A polarised film built into the lens acts like a venetian blind, blocking out light traveling in certain directions that would otherwise result in glare.

Polarizing Transitions: 

  • These lenses have the Polarizing benefits of reducing glare from horizontal surfaces combined with the ability to tint from light to dark.
  • Great for active lifestyles and performance enhancing sports sunglasses.

 

Polycarbonate Lenses Children and Safety

  • Polycarbonate lenses are 10 times more impact resistant than ordinary plastic lenses, and they're inherently scratch-resistant.
  • The durability of polycarbonate lenses provides greater in-built protection against eye injury, making them perfect for children and Safety eyewear.
  • Children who wear glasses will appreciate the incredible lightness that polycarbonate lenses offer, with no more red marks on their noses and no pressure points behind the ears
  • Lighter, thinner, flatter, tougher, and with UV protection built in, polycarbonate lenses provide a host of benefits to children and adults alike.
  • Polycarbonate lenses provide in-built protection against 100% of UVA rays and 99.9% of UVB rays. Wearers don't have to choose UV protection as an added extra; with polycarbonate lenses UV protection is inherent in the lens material.
