VISION TYPES: Distance glasses are generally for everyday use, and for things like driving or watching TV. Reading glasses are for any close-up work such as reading (as the name suggests!). Please note that reading glasses are specifically for close work and will not give clear vision when looking into the distance.
• Thin 1.6 lenses are thinner, better suited to higher prescriptions where the lenses can be chunky otherwise.
• Transitions lenses react to UV light and darken in your chosen colour to become effective sunglasses and protect your eyes.
• 15% tints are fixed tints that are often used for cosmetic reasons and can provide some comfort in bright sunlight.
• 85% tints are fixed tints that are similar to sunglasses. They provide super comfort in bright sunlight.
• Scratch-Resistant coating means your glasses are more resistant to scratches and scrapes from keys, coins and other things they might come into contact with. Please note that they are only resistant, not 100% scratch-proof!
• Anti-Reflective coating means your glasses have both scratch-resistance and also let in 50% more light than standard plastic lenses. This reduces glare and is incredibly effective in low-light conditions such as driving at night.
• Super-Clear coated lenses are ultimately tough! They are scratch-resistant, anti-reflective as well as water and grease repellent.
• OptiBlue coating is brilliant for those who suffer with eye-fatigue. They block out harmful artificial blue lights emitted from most device screens such as computers and tablets. This coating isn't available on Transitions, thin or tinted lenses.
PRESCRIPTION: Unless you have selected "Readers-To-Go" in the Vision Type field, you will need to enter your prescription at the checkout.
