At Optical Effects, you can choose from a variety of premium lenses, including:
-Polarized lenses: Polarized lenses are a great option for anyone who spends time outdoors. If you’re working outdoors, especially when doing high-glare activities around water or snow, polarized lenses help reduce glare and provide additional clarity while keeping your eyes protected.
-Blue light protection: Computer screens, smartphones, tablets, fluorescent bulbs — blue light is all around. Long-term and continuous exposure to harmful blue light (blue-violet light) can contribute to long-term damage of your eyes. Those at highest risk are people with a family history or exhibiting signs of AMD, and working professionals, children, teens and gamers. To combat this, Optical Effects offers Crizal Prevencia lenses to reduce exposure while still allowing beneficial blue-turquoise light to pass through. Plus, they also provide all the benefits of no-glare lenses.
-Premium progressive lenses: Progressive lenses provide sharp vision and smooth transitions at any distance. They help extend your vision within arm’s reach, so you no longer have to tilt or angle your head to find your focus. Varilux® Physio® lenses help you transition from near to far, and every distance in between, smoothly and effortlessly. Varilux Comfort® uses the prescriptions from both your eyes so your lenses are calculated as a pair, letting your eyes work better together. Varilux® X Series™, featuring Xtend™ Technology, is Optical Effects’ most advanced progressive lens available.
-Post-concussion lenses: Eyezen lenses are recommended for post-concussion therapy. They also help reduce eye strain caused by close viewing of devices like cellphones and tablets.
