Lenses to fit your lifestyle

Choosing the right lens depends on your prescription, personal preference, and lifestyle.

Prescription Needs/Personal Preferences:

Whether your prescription specifies Single Vision, Bifocals, Trifocals, or Progressives, our Eyewear Specialists are trained to provide you with lens options that best meet your visual needs as well as your personal preferences.

Consider buying 2 pairs of glasses

Depending on your lifestyle, personal preference, and vision needs, you may want or need an additional pair of glasses. One pair should be used to provide vision correction while performing your primary activities. A second pair can be used to compliment or provide vision correction for other activities in which you participate.

Second pair options include:

  • Sunglasses
  • Reading glasses
  • Specific sports glasses
  • Safety glasses

i.wear Lenses and Treatments

Our focus is on eyewear. From helping you select the most flattering frame style to advising you on the best lenses, we're dedicated to ensuring your eyewear performs and fits perfectly.

In addition to a wide selection of prescription eyewear and sunglasses, we also offer a number of specialty lenses and lens treatments that can provide better vision and extend the life of your lenses.

Specialty Lenses

Ultraviolet and HEV Protection

Overexposure to the suns ultraviolet (UV) rays has been linked to cataracts and other eye health problems. UV also causes pre-mature wrinkling and aging of the delicate skin around the eyes. People have learned to protect their skin with sunscreen lotion. Protecting your eyes from exposure to the sun is just as important.

However, ultraviolet light isn't the only type of light that your eyes need protection from. Now scientists warn that High Energy Visible (HEV) light can cause serious damage to your eyes and skin.

Many lenses come with built-in UV protection. UV coatings can also be applied to provide protection. Polarized lenses, polycarbonate and transition lenses provide UV protection. Ask one of our certified opticians about HEV lens options.

Polarized Lenses

A polarized filter in the lens eliminates glare, enhances visual acuity and color contrast, and provides protection from harmful UV rays.

  • UV protection
  • Wrinkle protection
  • Superior driving lens
  • Superior glare blocker
  • Ideal lens for outdoor recreation

Transitions Lenses

In addition to a pair of sunglasses, Transitions lenses make the ideal everyday pair of glasses.

Choose Transitions® lenses for your everyday glasses:

  • Clear indoors and at night
  • Automatically adjust to changing light.
  • Reduced glare, eyestrain and fatigue
  • Block 100% of UV radiation

LENS TREATMENTS

i.wear by oasa has an array of lens treatments that may increase visual comfort and offer additional protection to your eyes. These include:

Mirror

This type of coating reflects a high percentage of light reducing the light being transmitted into the eye, providing further reduction of glare and increased visual comfort for people with certain medical conditions, such as cataracts, refractive surgery, injuries, retinal changes, systemic disease and glaucoma.

  • We recommend the combination of a mirror coating on a polarized lens with anti-reflective coating on the back of the lens for increased protection from the sun.
  • Mirror coatings come in a variety of colors including gold, silver, black, green, blue, and copper.

Tints

This lens treatment reduces visible light by decreasing the light that enters your eyes to improve comfort and reduce eyestrain.

  • Tint colors may also complement your facial tones and make your glasses look more attractive on your face.

Non-Glare Coatings

The standard coating reduces annoying glare, which can be distracting. In addition, it removes halos from bright objects, especially at night. Reflections get in the way of seeing things clearly. A MUST HAVE for every pair of glasses!

Ask for our Premium Non-Glare Coating for:

  • Exceptional smudge resistance
  • Reduced eye strain and fatigue
  • Improved night vision
  • Reduced back surface reflections

Scratch-Resistant Coatings

Scratch-resistant coated (SRC) lenses offer extra peace of mind for those with an active lifestyle or tend to be rough on glasses. In the past, SRC lenses were offered as an option but today all lenses sold at i.wear by oasa come with Scratch-resistant Coating, UV 400 protection (remove comma here) and a one-year scratch warranty.

Technology and materials are constantly changing. Rest assured our team of certified opticians is up-to-date and ready to advise you on the most appropriate lens for your prescription and lifestyle.
