Lens Technology

Using the most advanced equipment, Vogue Optical proudly offers lenses and coatings that meet the highest level in quality and standards.

Vogue Optical stays on top of lens technology developments and trends.

Single Vision Lenses

Single Vision lenses have the same power throughout (top and bottom) and can be used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or a combination of these disorders. Most people who wear glasses before the age of 40 have Single Vision lenses.

Bifocal Lenses

Distance and Reading in One Lens

Bifocal lenses have two parts: the upper part normally used for distance vision and the lower part used for near vision tasks such as reading. Many people after reaching age 45 develop a condition called Presbyopia, which is a deterioration in the ability of the eye’s natural lens to expand or contract in order to focus on close objects. People with Presbyopia need a special lens for reading and may need a different lens for seeing in the distance.

Trifocal Lenses

Distance Reading and Intermediate in One Lens

Trifocal lenses have three different focus areas: the top for distance, the center for intermediate vision, and the bottom for near vision.

Progressive Lenses

Multifocal literally means “having more than one focus” so bifocal and trifocal lenses are actually types of multifocal lenses. In addition to bifocal and trifocal lenses, the other multifocal is a progressive addition (no-line bifocal) lens that increases in power from the top to bottom of the lens. Progressive lenses have no clear dividing lines as the focus changes from bottom to top. Progressive addition lenses avoid the “image jump” in the visual field created by bifocal and trifocal lenses and are more cosmetically attractive.

Reflection-Free Coating

Reflection-Free Coatings reduce both internal and external reflections on lenses creating a nicer cosmetic appearance. Internal reflections appear as rings that make lenses look thick. External reflections mask your eyes from a clear, complete view when someone is looking at you. With a Reflection-Free Coating, eyeglass lenses appear thin or non-existent and your eyes look more natural.
A Reflection-Free Coating on your glasses can also be beneficial if you spend a great deal of time on a computer. Working on a computer for an extended period of time can lead to eye strain, as your eye muscles struggle to view specific areas of the monitor and battle the glare. Typical symptoms of eyestrain while working on the computer include blurry vision, dry eyes, and irritation. Reflection Free coating can reduce eyestrain and make it possible to work on the computer for longer periods of time without difficulty.

High Definition Lenses

When an eye exam is given, the equipment used does not accurately represent the frame a customer ultimately chooses. Because of this, the prescription will not be the most optimal prescription for the customer wearing their new frames – until now!

Polarized Lenses

Polarization is a contrast enhancement technique that can reduce back reflections and bring out features not readily visible with normal viewing. Polarized Lenses eliminate glare. Any surface can create glare in sunlight, including water, sand, snow, buildings, windows and vehicles. They can, in fact, reduce the glare that comes off a long, flat surface such as the hood of a car on the highway.

Polarized lenses are the top recommendation for boaters and fishermen, golfers, drivers, bikers, hunters, and joggers, just to name a few. For these activities, they offer a clearer view by eliminating the glare.

Polarization eases eye stress and fatigue from bright light and comes in several colors and density options. The brown or copper lenses increase the contrast between colors and are the preferred tint for driving. This contrast sharpens the imagery. This lens color is also very good for golfers, and when used on rainy days.

The gray, smoke or green lenses are the most popular because not only do they cut the bright light but they also help keep the colors appearing the most natural and true. Polarized lenses can also be used indoors by those persons with light-sensitive eyes or those exposed to bright light through windows or while on the computer.

Transitions®: Original Transitions Lenses

Just like ordinary clear lenses, original Transitions lenses are clear when indoors and at night. Once outdoors, these lenses conveniently adapt to varying light conditions and become darker in either grey or brown activated color options. These everyday lenses provide continuous comfort and peace of mind by decreasing glare, reducing eye fatigue and blocking 100% of UV rays. This lens option is ideal for kids too!

Drivewear® Lenses

For your second pair, a polarized photochromic lens that darkens outside as well as behind the windshield of a car would be ideal! These lenses react to different weather and light conditions from overcast to bright light enhancing the eye’s natural functions to provide optimum vision! This product also blocks 100% of damaging UV.

Virtually indestructible, Trivex is the lens of choice for the increasingly popular rimless frames being worn today.
