Lenses

IEC has a full-service optical lab to produce lenses with advanced technology. We offer a variety of lens materials including:

  • Trivex lenses are crisp, clear, and lightweight yet strong. We recommend this material to people who suffer from eye strain when reading, working on computers, or driving. Trivex is a great choice for people with active lifestyles who desire lightweight comfort coupled with unprecedented strength.
  • Polycarbonate lenses are thinner than plastic, impact resistant, and provide 100% protection from UV light. These lenses are standard for rimless frames.
  • High-index lenses offer a thin, comfortable option for patients with higher prescriptions. These lenses bend light more efficiently than conventional lenses to correct nearsightedness with less lens material. High-index lenses are thin, lightweight, and absorb 100% of the sun’s UV light. Not only are these flatter lenses great for rimless frames, they also reduce the “bug eye” effect.
  • Plastic CR-39 which is lighter than glass, easy to tint, and available in many styles. While it’s a great low-budget choice for adults, the material is not suitable for children because it tends to crack and scar and is not impact resistant.

Your choice of lens can be coated by a variety of treatments, depending on the needs of your lifestyle, such as:

  • Anti-reflective coating reduces eye strain and fatigue induced by reflections or glare. This type of coating improves your night vision, repels dust and water, and protects your lenses against scratches and smudges.
  • Scratch treatment extends the life of your eyeglasses by preventing scratches from damaging your lenses and minimizing daily wear and tear.
  • Blue light protection provides the most protection from harmful blue light emitted by electronic devices, such as computer, phone, and television screens. This type of coating reduces fatigue, decreases symptoms of dry eye, and improves low-contrast vision.
  • UV protection decreases your eye’s exposure to harm ultraviolet light by blocking 98-100% of UVA and UVB rays. This decreases your chance of eye problems such as macular degeneration and cataracts.
