There are many lens materials available to create your prescription eyeglasses. High-index materials create thinner and lighter eyewear. Polycarbonate and Trivex materials have the best impact-resistant qualities for safety. The patient's prescription, needs, and desires as well as the optics and characteristics of each lens material must be taken into consideration when choosing the best lens material. No one is better at selecting lenses than Barnett Eyecare & Eyewear.
Non-glare or anti-reflective treatments have come a long way in the last few years. These treatments are much more scratch resistant than acrylic lenses have ever been.

If you are having trouble with your current lenses, we may have a solution for you.
