What kind of eyeglasses lenses should I choose?

A large range of eyeglasses lenses is available today. Although glasses are often thought of as only glass, today they're made from many other materials. Some popular options include lightweight plastic lenses, impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses, and super thin high-index plastic lenses.

You can also get lens treatments for extra durability and comfort. Some popular lens treatments include scratch-resistant treatment, anti-glare treatment, and UV blocking treatments. If you want to combine your glasses and sunglasses, you can opt for photochromic treatment that darkens when you’re outside and lightens again when you’re indoors.
