Visage Eyewear

When talking about eyeglasses, one is referring to the “frame” and to the “lenses.” The lenses are the component that enhances one’s vision. Of the many types of lenses available, Visage narrows choice to two types: single vision and multifocal; and three material grades: plastic, mid ­index, and high index. Strength of prescription; type of frame mounting; and patient lifestyle­ needs dictate the type of material used. The “glass” component of glasses is still available but increasingly rare. more

Transitions are equipped with photochromatic dyes that enable the lenses to darken when exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet light. The greater the intensity of UV rays, the darker they become.

Anti-reflective coating (also called AR coating or anti-glare coating) improves both your vision through your lenses and the appearance of your eyeglasses. Premium anti-reflective coatings can virtually eliminate the reflection of light from eyeglass lenses, allowing 99.5 percent of available light to pass through the lenses and enter the eye for good vision. more
