It’s What’s in the Frame


The frame you wear is what others see, but the lenses in your frame help you see! Eyeglass lenses have evolved in so many ways for both single-vision wearers’ needs to those that require multi-focal correction. One’s ability to enjoy optimal crisp vision is achieved by the recommendation for the best lens solution—and that is where your eye doctor, optician, and eyewear consultant can help you select the right lens material, lens design, and lens coatings and enhancements. This is where science and style meet at The Eye Institute. So, let us help you choose a great eyewear ‘look,’ and we’ll combine that with the lens solution best for you!

Technological Advances

  • The development of high-index lenses has allowed for thinner and lighter glasses, reducing the bulky appearance of traditional eyeglasses.
  • Digital lens technology has allowed for more precise lens customization, particularly for those with complex prescriptions or unique visual needs.
  • Progressive lenses, which provide a gradual change in prescription from the top to bottom of the lens, have become more precise, resulting in smoother and more natural vision transitions.
  • Aspheric lenses, which are designed to provide clearer peripheral vision, have become more popular due to their enhanced visual acuity and reduced distortion.

Customize Your “Look”

  • Anti-reflective coatings have become increasingly popular, reducing glare and improving clarity, particularly during nighttime or indoor use.
  • Photochromic lenses, which darken when exposed to sunlight, have improved in their ability to quickly adapt to changing light conditions, providing greater convenience for wearers.
  • Blue-light blocking coatings have become more common, addressing concerns over digital eye strain caused by prolonged exposure to screens.
  • Polarized lenses, which reduce glare from reflective surfaces, have improved in their ability to maintain color accuracy and clarity.
