Lens Materials


What Lens Material do you need?


The lens material dictates multiple attributes of the lens, including thickness, weight, impact resistance, scratch resistance, & optical clarity. The most important factor for selecting a lens material is thickness and weight. The lens' thickness & weight are affected by your Rx strength, frame type, frame size, & pupil location. Some frame types and safety applications will also require specific lens materials. Use the table below to review the lens material options:

Lens Material Description Image
Plastic
The Plastic CR-39 (1.50 index) lens material is a great choice for lower prescriptions and full-rimmed frame applications. Plastic lenses have excellent optical clarity and are available in virtually all lens types. The Plastic CR-39 material cannot be used with rimless style frames. Plastic Lens Material
Polycarbonate
The Polycarbonate (1.59 index) lens material is a great choice for mid-range prescriptions. Polycarbonate lenses are thinner and lighter than standard plastic, have increased impact resistance and 100% UV protection. The high impact resistance makes polycarbonate the perfect choice for kids and sports enthusiasts. Polycarbonate Lens Material

Specialty Lenses


Specialty Lens Options


Specialty lenses allow for different types of sunglass lens functionality, from full-time, dark sunglass lenses, to Transitions that darken when exposed to the sun's UV rays. View our specialty lens types below:

Specialty Lens Type Description Image
Tinted
Tinted eyeglass lenses are dipped in dye to make the lens darker, reducing the amount of light passing through the lens into your eye. At ReplaceALens, we offer Gray, Brown, Gray/Green(G15), Blue, Rose, & Yellow tint colors, in Light, Medium, Dark, & Very Dark. We also offer Gradient tints, where the top of the lens is dark and gradually decreases to light at the lens bottom. Tints can be added to almost every lens, with limited exceptions. Tinted Sunglass Lens
Polarized
Polarized lenses are tinted lenses that filter out unwanted glare. They always have a standard darkness, 80% tint, 100% UV protection, and are perfect for driving, sports, or other outdoor uses. Add a sunglass anti-glare for the ultimate protection. Polarized lenses are available in almost all lens type & material configurations. Polarized Eyeglass Lenses
Transitions Photochromic Lenses
At ReplaceALens, we use only the name-brand 'Transitions' lenses. Transitions lenses are clear or slightly tinted indoors and darken to a 75-80% darkness outside. They do not change in the car, and do take about 5 minutes to go back from the fully activated state. The Transitions Vantage offers molecularly-polarized lenses. Available in gray, brown, & gray/green (with restrictions based on the application).Transitions eyeglass lenses photochromic Transitions Website
Transitions Signature VII
The Transitions Signature VII lenses are clear indoors and darken to a 75% darkness outside. They do not change in the car, and do take about 5 minutes to go back to clear from the fully activated state. Available in gray, brown, & gray/green (in limited applications). Transitions Signature VII lenses are available in almost all lens type & material configurations. Transitions Signature VII Lenses
Transitions XTRActive
Transitions XTRActive lenses are different from Transitions VII in that they always have a 10% tint indoors and they darken to an 80% darkness outside. They have a slight change in the car as well, but they are not recommended as a substitute for a dark driving sunglass. Available in gray & brown in most applications. Transitions XTRActive Lenses
Transitions Vantage
Transitions Vantage utilizes a new, molecular polarization technology that provides a polarized lens when in it's darkened state. The Vantage functions almost identically to the Transitions Signature VII, but add the polarization. This polarization is not a substitute for a traditional polarized lens, but does provide extra protection against horizontal glare and reflections. Available in limited configurations. Transitions Vantage Lenses
Drivewear
Drivewear lenses combine the Transitions and polarized technologies. They are tinted lenses that change from a orange-yellow to a darker auburn depending on the UV & incandescent light levels. They have 100% UV protection and are perfect for driving, sports, or other outdoor uses. Add a sunglass anti-glare for the ultimate protection. Drivewear Eyeglass Lens

Lens Coatings


What type of lens coating do you need?

There are 3 types of coatings traditionally applied to eyeglass lenses: anti-Scratch, anti-glare, & mirrored lens coatings. From eliminating reflections & glare to extending the life of your lenses, these coatings help to provide the best lenses for every individual application. We also offer lens tints in numerous colors and densities. View our lens coatings below:

Coating Type Description Image
Anti-Scratch
The anti-scratch coating is a protective coating applied to the front and back lens surfaces to protect against scratching. Our anti-scratch coatings are all premium and increase a lens' resistance to scratching, but there is no such thing as a scratch-proof lens. The best way to prevent scratching is to make sure that nothing hard (i.e. keys, pavement, etc) comes into contact with the lens surfaces. Anti-Scratch Coating
Anti-Glare - Overview
Anti-glare (a.k.a. 'anti-reflective') coatings reduce reflections and glare, drastically improving both your vision and your look. Since our anti-glare coatings eliminate 99.5% of reflections, more light passes through the lens into your eye, giving you a clearer picture of the world. Our coatings are produced with clarity and durability in mind using the latest vacuum coating technology. See specific anti-glare classifications below. Anti Glare AR Lens Coatings
Anti-Glare - Standard & Premium
The standard, 7 layer anti-glare coating eliminates 99.5% of reflections, giving a clearer picture, and a cosmetically superior look. The premium anti-glare adds an additional protective super slick, hydrophobic, oleophobic top layer, making the lens easier to clean and less likely to scratch. Standard versus premium Anti Glare Anti Reflective Coatings
Anti-Glare - Computer/Blue-Blocking
Coatings are now available specifically to work with digital device use. Blue blocking anti-glare coatings protect your eyes from the harmful effects of blue light (HEV) emitted from digital devices. Blue color hue, not recommended for all around use. Available on select products Blue Blocking Computer Anti-Glare Coating
Anti-Glare - Sunglass
The sunglass anti-glare coating is our premium coating applied to the back side of dark sunglass lenses & mirror coated lenses in order to eliminate light reflecting off the back side of the lens and into the eye. Add this coating to any sunglass lens product. Sunglass Back Side Anti-Glare Coating
Anti-Glare - Crizal
Crizal is the brand of anti-glare coatings produced by the largest optical company, Essilor. They offer a wide variety of coatings, the most popular of which is the Crizal Avance. The Crizal premium anti-glare coatings are great quality and available only on single vision or Varilux Products. Click for Crizal Website Crizal Anti Glare Lens Coatings
Mirror Coating
Mirror coatings darken the lens and add a 'mirror-like' finish to the front lens surface. We offer mirror coatings in silver, blue, black, rose, green, red, violet, and gold colors. They include a Sunglass (back-side) Anti-Glare coating to prevent back side reflections. Enhance your look with a mirror! Mirror Coated Eyeglass Lenses
