Eyewear Lens Technology Makes Wearing Eyewear a Pleasant and Fashionable Experience
Modern eyewear technology gives more eyewear lenses and eyewear frame options. Whether you wear fashion eyewear, designer eyewear, prescription eyewear, non-prescription eye wear, sport eyewear, sport specific eyewear or discount eyewear there is a pair of eye glasses and eyewear lenses to suit your every need.
Along with the coatings that can be applied to eyewear lenses there are eyewear lens options that help to reduce glare and protect the eyes from the suns harmful UV (ultraviolet) rays. Polarized eyewear lenses have been one of the most popular choices for boaters and fishermen for years by reducing the glare from the water.
Photochromic lenses change from light to dark depending on the amount of UV (ultraviolet) light they are exposed to. The lenses used to be made of glass but are now made with regular plastic, polycarbonate (impact resistant) and high-index glass and plastic. Silver halide in the eyewear lenses causes them to darken when exposed to UV light. Available in a wide variety of eyewear lenses that are thinner and lighter than ever before, with some photochromic eyewear lenses changing from clear to dark in as little as sixty seconds. The eyewear lenses can be found in nearly every lens design, refractive index and prescription with one hundred percent UV protection.
Another option in colored eyewear lenses is tints which do not change as do the photochromic eyewear lenses but stay the same color at all times. Available in plastic eyewear along with glass lenses in nearly every color imaginable. The lighter tints are usually for cosmetic reasons only and found in colors such as light pink, brown, gray, blue and red to name a few. The darker tints are most often used as sunglasses and found in gray, brown or black tints. Tints found on eyewear can either be solid with the entire lens in the same colored tint or gradient with the tint from light to dark (from bottom to top). Yellow tints are an excellent choice for target shooters because the objects can appear sharper, it's also helpful for tennis players as the tennis balls can be seen more clearly.
Green tints are a popular option for golfers as the sport eyewear can help you see the subtle breaks in the green without squinting, helping you to play the fairway in low sun angles. The green tinted golf eyewear can also aid in seeing the hole flag and golf ball making for a better played golf game. Rose and pink tinted eye goggles are an excellent choice for skiers and snow boarders allowing them to see the shadows and edges on a ski hill.

There are eyewear frames and eyewear lenses to suit every face shape, lifestyle and personality.
