From the moment we wake up to when we close our eyes at night, we’re constantly reimagining ways to help you see the world around you. Since the beginning, this passion for innovation has been at the heart of everything we do. It’s made Vision Crafter’s Opticians an industry leader—introducing revolutionary vision solutions before anyone else.
With ordinary plastic lenses, a strong prescription can result in a thicker lens. In contrast, our hi-index plastic or polycarbonate lenses will reduce lens thickness for greater comfort and a better appearance.
- Hi-index plastic is lightweight and thinner than most plastic. we offer hi-index 1.67 and 1.74 lenses that are thinner and lighter with more appealing aesthetics for greater comfort and a better look.
- Polycarbonate lenses have superior impact resistance and are lighter than regular plastic lenses. They’re 20% thinner and 30% lighter than standard plastic lenses, yet super tough and very hard to break.
LENS DESIGN PERSONALIZATION
After materials, our lens makers consider the design and function of the lens. Does the wearer need them to see far away or up close? Are we correcting a vision problem, such as astigmatism? Here are just some of the lens designs to meet those vision needs.
- Single vision lenses—made for one, consistent focal power to correct a single vision condition.
- Progressive lenses—correct more than one vision condition, with the focal power “progressing” from top to bottom without a visible line separating them.
- Concave lenses—used to treat near-sightedness, or myopia. The lens shape is concave (thicker at the edge, thinner in the middle) to bend rays outwards.
- Plus lenses—used to treat far-sightedness, or hyperopia. The lens shape is convex (thicker in the middle, thinner at the edge) to bend rays inwards.
- Cylindrical lenses—designed for astigmatisms, or when the cornea of the eye is oval, rather than round. A cylindrical lens is the most common way to correct astigmatism.
