UV protection - the sun's ultra-violet rays pose potential harm to your eyes. UV protection on lenses accomplishes the same thing as sunscreen lotion on your skin - it shields your eyes from harmful ultra-violet rays. Plastic and glass lenses may require UV coating, while high-index and polycarbonate lenses provide UV protection inherently in the lens material.

Scratch-resistant coatings - recommended to protect lenses from everyday wear-and-tear. Some materials, such as polycarbonate, high index lenses, and several new plastic lens designs include scratch protection.

Anti-reflection coatings - dispensers suggest anti-reflective, or A-R lenses, to help reduce eye fatigue in all situations, particularly while viewing computer screens and driving at night. In addition to enhancing vision by removing distracting reflections, A-R lenses are cosmetically desirable, as the wearer's eyes are clearly visible behind the lenses.

Transitions® is also available in variable polarization that adjusts to the level of outdoor glare. The Transitions® Vantage™ lenses have a light tint indoors. The Transitions® Drivewear® lenses area polarized sun lenses that reduce glare and optimize color contrast. Color and darkness automatically adjust to changing light even behind the windshield and outdoors.

Tinted lenses - the majority of lenses can be tinted from light to very dark. Tints for sun lenses are usually medium to dark shades, and can be solid through the whole lens, or gradient, darker on top fading to lighter or clear at the bottom of the lens. Tints also come in a rainbow of color options.

Lens MaterialsPolarized lenses - are the top pick for eliminating glare. Hunters, boaters and fishermen, golfers, and drivers are a few who benefit from polarized lens' glare-cutting properties. Any surface can create glare in sunlight, including water, sand, snow, windows, vehicles, and buildings. Polarization eases eye stress and fatigue in the sun, and comes in several color and density options.

Mirrored lenses - not only look cool, they are cool. Mirrored coatings provide a reflective surface that makes the eye virtually invisible to viewers, while keeping the wearers eyes protected from glare and heat. Mirrors come in a variety of colors to enhance tints and visual performance.
