At Campus Opticians, we take your vision very seriously. Our top priority is to provide you with the best eyesight possible. We have a wide selection of lens options that are thinner, lighter, scratch-resistant and safer. Campus Opticians carries one of the most extensive lens offerings providing our clients as unmatched combination of comfort, safety, accuracy and cosmetics.
We invite you to browse through our lens menu and get the information you are looking for:
Glass Lenses: Glass lenses offer superior optics and very high scratch-resistance. The primary disadvantage of glass is its weight, generally twice that of plastic lenses. The risk of breakage and eye injury is also very high with these lenses.
Plastic or CR-39 Lenses: Conventional plastic or CR-39 lenses are about half the weight of glass lenses and can be tinted to almost any color and density. On the other hand, CR39 lenses are more easily scratched than glass. Finally, plastic lenses are more impact resistant than glass.
Polycarbonate Lenses: Polycarbonate lenses are thinner and lighter weight than traditional plastic lenses. This lens type is about 12 times more impact resistant than conventional plastic lenses. This makes them the lenses of choice for children, sports and safety eyewear.
High Index Lenses (1.60, 1.66 and 1.67): These lenses are thinner and lighter than standard lens material. The higher the index of refraction, the denser the material and the thinner the lenses. High index plastic uses less material so the lenses are often lighter in weight. High index lenses absorb all harmful UV light and can be tinted to any shade or color. For cosmetic reasons, we recommend anti-reflective coating and polished edge option for all high index lenses.
Aspheric Design Hi-Index for Plus Lenses: These lenses provide special visual and cosmetic benefits for stronger corrections. Flatter than conventional lenses, Aspheric lenses eliminate the "bulgy" appearance of strong plus lenses and greatly enhance the appearance of finished eyewear.
Classic and Progressive Multi-focal Lenses: If you are over 40 years old, and have trouble reading fine print, you have more options than just the lined bifocals. Progressive lenses, also known as "no-line bifocals" are the closest to natural vision. Progressives provide a smooth transition from distance to intermediate to near distances. We carry a wide variety of multi-focal lenses from a wide range of lens designers and manufacturers.
