A range of lens upgrades and customizations are available for regular and prescription sunglasses.
Polarized lenses greatly reduce reflected glare. They are ideal for driving, fishing, boating, and many other sports. Sun sensitive individuals really appreciate polarized sunglasses and polarized prescription sunglasses because it gives that extra sun protection and relaxes the eyes. Transitions Vantage lenses from Essilor combine Transitions technology with polarization, so your lenses are clear and non-polarized indoors, then turn dark and polarized in the sunlight.

Mirrored lenses are both fashionable and functional. Light reflects off the mirrored surface, creating another barrier of sunlight protection for your eyes. Mirror tints are also a current fashion trend and are available in different colours, allowing you to create a truly customized look.
Gradient tints start dark at the top of the lens, and gradually get lighter toward the bottom. This style was very fashionable in the 70s & 80s, and is back on trend with the retro revival!
Custom lens tints:
Our lens manufacturers are capable of matching the tint of most lens examples that we send them.We can arrange to have your lenses custom tinted by sending an existing sunglass lens to the manufacturer, or we can custom tint a demo lens in our lab for their reference.
Crizal back-side anti-reflection & UV absorption coating:
Light comes at your eyes from in front of you and behind you. The tint on your lenses protects your eyes from the front, but UV rays can still get in from behind your lenses and reflect into your eyes, causing distraction and sun damage. A back-side anti-reflection coating absorbs the light that hits the back of your lens so that it doesn’t reflect into your eyes. UV rays have been linked to macular degeneration and cataracts –protect yourself from all angles of harmful rays!

Still marveling…at how much I love my new glasses y’all! While in Nashville recently, I attended a book signing...I realized I wasn’t taking my glasses off to read! Yeah, I know–that’s how it’s supposed to be—–but it hasn’t been for years.
