Optical Frames offered at Ban Soleil
Materials, lens types and enhancements can be just as unique as you are. Choosing the right lens and options to fit your lifestyle is an important step. Ban Soleil Sunglass Shop offers many different eyeglass options and will work closely with you to build the perfect pair of glasses.
Single Vision Lenses
Single vision lenses offer correction for people who are nearsighted, farsighted, or need help with reading.
A multifocal lens combines two or more focal points into one lens. This allows a person to view objects near, far and in between all in one lens. Multifocal lenses are available in bifocals, trifocals and no-line progressive bifocals.
No-Line Bifocal Lenses
No-line bifocal (or progressive lenses) offer all the benefits of a multifocal lens without the visibility of lines on the lens.
Most frames can be purchased with Plano lenses, giving you both fashion appeal and lens treatments that fit your lifestyle – even if you don’t need vision correction.
- Polycarbonate: Durable, scratch resistant and shatter resistant lenses are a standard choice for sports, children’s and safety glasses.
- Trivex: Superior optics in a super lightweight lens, these slim high definition lenses are a great choice for higher prescriptions and those seeking premium quality vision.
- CR-39 Plastic: Standard plastic lenses offer sharp optics for basic prescriptions at an opening price point.
- High-Index: Super lightweight and ultrathin, these lenses are a good option for higher prescriptions.
Lens Treatments and Coatings
Scratch Resistant Coating
Most lenses today include a scratch resistant coating to help protect against damage. Hard coating or scratch coating is great for children and is standard on polycarbonate lenses.
Highly reflective reflex mirror coatings prevent your eyes from being seen by others and are a great way to add some flare to a pair of prescription sunglasses.
The application of an ultraviolet treatment helps protect the eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. This treatment is simple to apply to most plastic lenses without affecting the appearance. Several lens materials such as polycarbonate, hi-index and trivex do not require this additional UV treatment due to the inherent property of the lens material.
