Lenses

Choosing the right lens design can be as important as the prescription itself. Our staff will work closely with you to determine which best meets your specific needs. The Optical Shops at the Northwest Eye Clinic pride themselves on keeping our lens selections up to date, offering you the latest in technology.

Single Vision Lens

Single vision lenses have only one viewing area throughout the lens. They can be made for reading, distance, intermediate or function as occupational glasses.

Multifocal Lens

Bifocal lenses have two distinct viewing areas within the same lens. Trifocal lenses are an extension of the bi-focals.They provide another segment on the lens above the reading viewing area to correct the intermediate viewing area between far and near.

Progressive Lens

Progressive addition lenses correct vision for all distances without the visible lines seen in bifocal or trifocal lenses. They have a graduated section in which the power of the lens progresses smoothly from one prescription to the other. We offer a wide range of progressive lenses from leading manufacturers such as Varilux and Hoya

Materials

There are several factors to consider when choosing the right lens material. Our staff will review your prescription and frame selection in order to provide you with the appropriate recommendation that best suits your needs.

CR39

CR39 refers to the material that is used to make the majority of prescription lenses. It is an optical grade plastic polymer recognized for its light weight, chemical resistance properties and 'tint-ability'.

Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate lenses are ten times more impact resistant than other plastics making them highly suitable for children and active patients. They offer UV protection and stop 99.9% of rays from the sun, fluorescent lights and computer screens. Polycarbonate lenses are thinner than standard lens and therefore more comfortable to wear.

Trivex

Trivex has the impact resistance and inherent UV protection of polycarbonate. However, Trivex is more impact and chip resistant making them perfect for drill mount frame designs. This material farexceeds FDA impact resistance standards

Hi Index

Hi Index lenses are ultra thin and lightweight. The use of this material is primarily determined by the strength of the eyeglass correction. Hi Index is perfect for patients with mid to high prescriptions looking for the best cosmetically appealing lens available.

Treatments

All of the glasses we dispense come with a scratch resistant coating and UV protection. There are also several lens treatments available to compliment your new eyewear and provide you with the best vision possible.

Polarized

Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks intense reflected light, reducing glare. Fishermen wearing polarized lenses can see below the surface of the water and drivers are no longer affected by a constant reflection of light from their hoods or the road ahead.

Anti-reflective

AR coatings eliminate internal and external surface reflections and increase the amount of light reaching the eye. Glare-fighting treatments offer comfort, improved contrast and enhanced visual acuity. We pride ourselves on offering only the latest technology available.

Transitions

Transitions lenses activate in the presence of natural light. These lenses are designed to be worn indoors but darken automatically when you step outside. Transitions lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, helping to decrease the risk of eye damage.

Northwest Eye Clinic, Ltd. offers the highest quality eyeglasses. It is important for patients to have complete peace of mind when purchasing eyewear from any of our four optical shops. Because we understand high quality eyewear is an investment, we stand behind every pair of glasses we sell.

One-Year Frame Protection

Northwest Eye Clinic offers only the best quality eyeglasses. However, should your frames break within one year of purchase, we will protect your investment by replacing them one time with an identical or comparable frame or frame part.

One-Year Scratch Protection

Our scratch coating is the strongest available and is guaranteed for one year. If you scratch your lenses within one year of the date of purchase, we will provide a one-time replacement of your lenses at no additional charge, if the scratches impair your vision or are cosmetically distracting.

90-Day Prescription Warranty

Your prescription is determined with precision to meet your particular needs. However, should your physician find that a change in your prescription is required within 90 days of your original exam, we will provide a one-time replacement of your lenses (purchased at Northwest Eye Clinic, Ltd.) at no additional charge.

30-Day Complete Satisfaction Guarantee

If you are not satisfied with your original purchase, you have up to 30 days to exchange your eyewear for a new pair. We will help you choose a different pair of glasses one time within that 30-day period. Because prescription eyewear is custom made and cannot be used by anyone but you, refunds on prescription lenses are not given under this guarantee.

Lifetime Adjustment Service

We are happy to clean, straighten, tighten and adjust your eyewear whenever necessary as long as you own your glasses. This service is free and we recommend you take advantage of it on a regular basis. Let us help you continue to enjoy your new glasses.
