We take your vision very seriously and strive to find you the best quality lenses for your individual needs. At International Optique our certified opticians can help you determine the correct lens type, lens material, and lens add-ons that will best fit you and your lifestyle. Whether you are in a single vision lens, lined bifocal or progressive lens we carry a variety of options for you to choose from.
Lens Types available
Single Vision Lenses
Single vision lenses are typically used for correction for patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Single vision lenses are available in a variety of lens materials and designs including digital lens technology which provides unrivaled visual clarity.
Starting around age 40, your eyes can gradually lose the ability to focus on nearby objects. This unavoidable condition is called Presbyopia. Presbyopia can be treated with lined bifocals, round bifocals or progressive lenses. Bifocals and trifocals are designed with a visible line that will have a distinct image jump from the distance to the near and in the trifocal a jump from the distant to intermediate to near vision. Where as the progressive lenses will have a more gradual progression from the distance, intermediate and near that will be a more seamless correction as well as cosmetically more appealing. There are easily over 500 different brands of progressive lenses in the marketplace. Our opticians will take careful measurements of your eyes in order to custom fit the appropriate style of lens that will fit your individual needs and lifestyle. Multifocal lenses are also available in the digital lens technology which provides unrivaled visual clarity.
Computer or Occupational lenses
Whether you are a pilot, painter, electrician, or working on the computer all day, we have lenses that will make your job easier. An occupational lens or computer lens is a design in prescription eyewear that allows the wearer to view all working distances, side to side, up and down, within a conventional working distance, or small environment. A working distance typical to many occupations will fall somewhere between ten to thirteen feet, respectively. Our opticians will help you decide if these specialty lenses are right for you.
Custom Features for your lenses
There are many features that a consumer can add on to their eyeglass lenses to make them more comfortable and see with much better clarity.
High-index eyeglass lenses are the right choice if you want thinner, lighter lenses and eyeglasses that are as attractive and comfortable as possible.
Anti-reflective or non-glare coating is a special element that is embedded into the lens to help reduce the reflection of the light in your lenses and to allow for the highest amount of “good” light to enter your eye. We are proud to use the Crizal Alize*, Crizal Avance* and Crizal Prevencia* non glare products.
Transition lenses will adjust from clear indoors to dark outdoors. No matter where you are, or what situation you’re in, Transitions lenses adapt to the perfect shade so you see with just the right amount of light.
Polarized lenses were manufactured over 80 years ago for fisherman to see into the water without reflection on the top of the water. The optical industry has advanced this technology not only with ready to wear sunglasses, but with prescription eyewear as well.
Whether you want color tinted lenses for sunglasses or for a fashion look, we have a variety of lenses for you to choose from.
