Varilux Lenses and Transitions

man wearing glasses in the sunA lens treatment is a special additive that either bonds with the lens, or is built into the lens during the lens manufacturing process. Lens treatments are available as individual additions to lenses and are also commonly bundled into single lens products for convenience and maximum benefit to your eyes.

At Premier Eye Center, we favor the following lens products:

  • Progressive lenses are X-series lenses or Comfort DRX or Shoreview (these lenses adapt from indoors to outdoors and back again and everything in between). They are specifically constructed to adjust to every unique shade. These lenses will end the frustrating necessity for carrying multiple pairs of glasses!
  • Eyezen Lenses (these lenses are specifically made to defend your eyes from the damage caused by digital eye strain). These lenses filter blue light and help to keep your eyes protected even while you spend hours (upon countless hours) utilizing big, medium, large and extra-large reading, playing and watching your favorite electronic devices.
  • Prevencia lenses for blue filter (specifically for heavy computer users)
  • Transitions VII, Transitions Xtractive, Transition Advantage
  • Crizal Avance, Crizal Saphire 360, Crizal Kids – these lenses are specifically manufactured with the sole intention to grant you the clearest vision possible, no matter what the external conditions may be, glare, scratches, smudges and even UV light. These lenses have been proven to reduce reflections to permit safer nighttime driving when glare is often at its worst.

Common Lens Coatings & Treatments:

  • Transitions Optical, Inc. has developed the world's most advanced photochromic lens technology—the ability of a lens to darken in the presence of invisible UV light.  Transitions lenses are the #1 brand of photochromic lenses recommended by eye care professionals worldwide. 
  • The UV rays in sunlight can be harmful to the eyes. Lenses that block 100% UV help to ward off various eye conditions and damage.
  • Scratches on lenses are distracting, plain and simple. And they can interfere with lens performance. Scratch-resistant treatments imbued into the lens surface toughen up the lenses making them more durable.
  • For fashion, comfort and clarity anti-reflective treatments are the way to go. They make the lens nearly invisible, and cut glare from headlights, computer screens and harsh lighting.
