BIFOCAL

A lens with two fields of vision seperated by a line. Generally the top is designated for distance-vision or computer-distance and the bottom for near-vision work such as reading.

The total lens height for a Bifocal lens must be 30mm or greater. We recommend a taller lens for more comfortable wear, but 30mm is the minimum height for a bifocal lens. If the frame chosen has a lens height smaller than 30mm, a different frame must be chosen for Bifocal lenses.

In a Bifocal lens, the two fields of vision are specifically differentiated by a visible line. The bottom reading area is 25mm wide and is positioned just below the centerline of the lens. The physical position of the bi-focal area will be affected by the physical height of the lens chosen.

PROGRESSIVE

This refers to the lens design which includes three fields of vision, without lines, and is sometimes referred to as a "no-line bifocal".

The lens height for a progressive lens must be 30mm or greater. We recommend a taller lens for more comfortable wear, but the minimum lens height is 30 mm. If this frame has a lens height smaller than 30mm, a different frame must be chosen for progressive lenses.

In a progressive lens, the shape of the corrected part of the lens is approximately that of a funnel or a mushroom, with the top portion for distance-vision, narrowing to the lower middle for mid-range, finally to the bottom portion for the near-vision or reading. The reading area is approximately the lower quarter, central third of the lens.

It is a good design, without lines, for general use. People sometimes prefer a single-vision lens for extended reading or up-close work.

PUPILLARY DISTANCE

The PD or Pupillary Distance is the distance between the pupils of the eyes, center to center, in Millimeters.(1 inch= 25.4mm). Unfortunately many optometrists leave this quite necessary measurement off of prescriptions, but it can be measured at home.

The best way to have a PD measured is by an optometrist, but you can have a friend measure it for you by holding a ruler just under your eyes and measuring the distance from the center of one pupil to the center of the other. You should be looking straight forward, fixing your focus on a distant object and not on the person measuring you. Repeat the measurement a few times for consistency.

Most people have a PD measurement that falls within the 54mm to 74mm range. If you are coming up with a number outside of this range consider that you might be making a measurement mistake. Do NOT just guess, and DO NOT try to measure your old glasses to determine this number. The PD is NOT measured from the geometric center of the lens and is not a visible spot on the lens.

Sometimes a prescription lists two numbers, written as PD 65/62 for example. 65 is the distance-vision PD, and the one to be entered on our forms. The second number, 62 is the "reading" or "near-vision" PD, to be used ONLY if you are ordering single-vision reading glasses.

Occasionally a PD is written as for example, 32/34.5 which are the mesurements from the center of the nose to either eye. The PD is the sum of the two, 32+34.5=66.5 One can enter this as 66 or 67; either is appropriate.

You should also be able to get your PD from your previous eyeglass supplier. This figure does not expire with age, and they must give it to you as it is part of your full prescription. It is your property.

ANTI REFLECTIVE COATING

Anti Reflective (AR) coating improves both the vision and the appearance of the glasses. It is a layered metal oxide coating applied to both sides of the lens that greatly reduces both the internal and external the reflections on the lens surface while allowing more light through the lens.

Internal reflections appear as rings that can make lenses look thicker while external reflections mask the eyes from others looking at you. Conversely the AR coating will make the lenses appear thinner while the greatly reduced reflections will make the eyes look natural and allow the lenses to disappear.

At night AR coatings are especially effective by considerably reducing the annoying glare, reflections and halos around lights, making it much more comfortable and safer for driving at night.


LENS TINT CHOICES

This is a permanent tint on the lens, not to be confused with the Photochromic lens which changes shade according to the amount of sunlight.

An 80% tint is a dark sunglass tint for bright outdoor conditions. We recommend the 80% Gray tint for most sunglass applications.

A 50% tint is a medium-light sunglass tint that is not too dark to make it unusable indoors, while giving some medium/light sunshade protection outdoors.

A 10% tint is a very light cosmetic /fashion tint barely noticeable to the wearer, but provides a slight hint of color to people looking at the wearer.

All of our eyeglass lenses, tinted or clear, have full 100% UV protection built-in to protect the eyes from harmful sunrays.

Since the brightness and tint density displayed can vary on each monitor for the identical image, even on those hooked up to the same computer, the color examples displayed above may not be an exact match to the tint you will receive. Nevertheless, the color chart above should give you a good indication of how they will look.


SPH

Spherical, referring to the refractive correction in the prescription.
The Spherical correction is for near (-) or far (+) sightedness.
If "PL" or "Plano" is written for the OD-Sph on your prescription, the value to be entered is 0.00.


OD-Cyl


Cylinder, referring to the strength of the correction for the astigmatism in the eye.
It can be either positive or negative.
If there is an OD Cyl value, there must be an OD Axis value.
If "DS" or "SPH" or "spherical" is noted in this space on your prescription, you have no astigmatism in that eye and the value to be entered is 0.00.


OD Axis


Axis refers to the angle of the correction for the astigmatism in the eye (if one exists) from 1 to 180.
If there is an OD Axis value, there must be an OD CYL (Cylinder) value.
If there is no OD Cylinder value, or if the OD Cylinder value is Zero, then the OD Axis value is Zero.
The Axis value is usually written as 3 digits, which means if your Axis value is 5, it is often written as 005. This Axis value is still 5, regardless of how it is displayed.


SPH


Spherical, referring to the refractive correction in the prescription.
The Spherical correction is for near (-) or far (+) sightedness.
If "PL" or "Plano" is written for the OS-Sph on your prescription, the value to be entered is 0.00.


OS-Cyl

Cylinder, referring to the strength of the correction for the astigmatism in the eye.
It can be either positive or negative.
If there is an OS Cyl value, there must be an OS Axis value.
If "DS" or "SPH" or "spherical" is noted in this space on your prescription, you have no astigmatism in that eye and the value to be entered is 0.00.


OS-Axis

Axis refers to the angle of the correction for the astigmatism in the eye (if one exists) from 1 to 180.
If there is an OS Axis value, there must be an OS CYL (Cylinder) value.
If there is no OS Cylinder value, or if the OS Cylinder value is Zero, then the OS Axis value is Zero.
The Axis value is usually written as 3 digits, which means if your Axis value is 5, it is often written as 005. This Axis value is still 5, regardless of how it is displayed.


CLIP-ON SUNSHADE

These are a lightweight, functional, polarized and 80% Gray density clip-on sunshade. These will turn any of the eyeglasses into a prescription sunglass.

We have eight different shapes and sizes to closely match the glasses you are ordering . These are not the common heavy, non polarized, generic drug-store Flip-Up clip-ons you might find elsewhere. Ours is not a flip-up type, but has small rubberized clips and a very light and narrow bridge wire between the lenses that will go over and blend into the eyeglass frame.

The drop-down menu below allows for the order of multiple clip-ons

For a different prescription sunglass solution you might also try the +Sunshade model frames. These have an exact matching magnetic snap-on polarized sunlens with no "clips" at all. Embedded in the bridge of the frame and the sunlens are small magnets, which connect to create a secure hold to one another. These frames look just like regular sunglasses with the sunlens on. Additionally, the sunlens is very easy to take on or off without removing the glasses from your face.

The magnetic clip-on sunshades are available only with the +Sunshade model frames.
