Distance - Single Vision:These are the most basic types of lenses and have only one magnification throughout the entire lens. They can be processed for Distance (to see Far), Reading (to see Near) or for Computer Work (Intermediate).
(Distance and Reading) :Progressive lenses are similar to Bifocal lenses, having two partitions - the Distance and Reading portions. However, there is no visible line to distinguish the partitions. Though having two magnifications on them, they look more like a pair of Single Vision lenses.
Bifocal with line (Distance and Reading):Bifocal lenses provide a distinct separation between the Distance (see Far) and the Reading part (see Near) of the glasses via a segmented half-shaped circle on the bottom part of the lenses. For these type of lenses, the PD (Pupilary Distance) measurement is very important to ensure that the center of vision is placed correctly on the lenses.
Computer eyeglasses help to see up close when reading or using the computer. These should not be used for distance vision problems or for driving-related vision correction. Reading prescriptions are generally indicated by the use of a plus (+) next to the numbers under the "Sphere" category.
Fashion - Without Prescription:
If you only want to purchase the frames for fashion purposes or are having your optometrist fit your lenses into these frames - choose this option.
Reading eyeglasses help to see up close when reading or using the computer. These should not be used for distance vision problems or for driving-related vision correction. Reading prescriptions are generally indicated by the use of a plus (+) next to the numbers under the "Sphere" category.
Your prescription is the most important element when you buy prescription glasses online - it is what enables us to custom-make each pair of glasses.

SPH or Sphere: SPHERE power; the overall power
Axis:this measurement refers to the direction of the astigmatism.
ADD:is an abbreviation for "near vision". This may represent a single-vision lens prescription to improve near work, or the reading portion of a bifocal lens. Some prescription forms use "ADD" in place of "N.V." with a single box to indicate the additional refractive power to be added to the spherical of each eye.
Standard lenses are CR-39 plastic lenses with an index of 1.5 – which work best for low prescriptions ranging from -2.00 to +2.00. If your prescription is above +/-2.00, we recommend that you upgrade your lens.
Thin & Light (1.56 High Index)
With a high index of 1.56, Thin & Light lenses offer the best value for people who have moderate prescriptions and want a light lens that is 30-50% thinner than standard plastic lenses. It’s the best choice for prescriptions ranging from -4.00 to +2.00.
With an index refraction of 1.59, Polycarbonate lenses are the most impact-resistant lenses and are perfect for people who play sports and for children’s eyeglasses. They are 30% thinner than standard plastic lenses and are shatter resistant! Polycarbonate lenses are recommended for prescriptions ranging from -4.00 to +2.00.
Super Thin (1.6 High Index)
Super thin lenses are more than 50% thinner than our standard lenses at an index of 1.6 and are great for people with moderate-to-high prescriptions. These lenses are recommended for prescriptions from -4.00 to +4.00 for the best results.
Ultra Thin (1.67 High Index)
Ultra thin lenses are the thinnest and lightest lenses available on the optical market! With an index of 1.67, these are the most cosmetically appealing lenses and are recommended for those with prescriptions of -8.00 to +6.00. For optimum results, add an ultraviolet protective coating.
As Thin as possibleThese are one of our high index lenses with a refractive index of 1.74. High index lenses can reduce the thickness of the lenses of high powered prescriptions. At the same time, they make the lenses lighter and more comfortable to wear, eliminating the "bug-eye" look of conventional lenses. These (1.74 index) lenses are recommended for prescriptions of : -12.00 to +8.00
Need extra protection on your lenses? Anti-scratch coating can be applied to your lenses in order to resist minor scratches from accidental misuse. Anti-scratch coating is applied to the lens and then cured – leaving the lens clear and protected to increase longevity.
See with more clarity when you add our premium anti-reflective coating to your lens. It will reduce reflection on the surface of the lenses and improve the efficiency of the glasses since less light is lost. Our premium anti-reflective coating is perfect for people who use computers and can help make night time driving more clear to the driver. It increases light transmission through the lenses, it provides the wearer with the clearest vision possible.
UV Protective Coating
Give your eyes more protection! Overexposure to UV light may cause eye problems that are preventable by placing a UV coating over the lens. Invisible to the naked eye, our UV (ultraviolet) coating provides superior protection for the eyes without changing the appearance of the lens.
