Lenses can undergo an anti-reflective treatment in order to eliminate glare, reduce scratches, smudges and dirt from dust and water, thus enhancing vision.
With no-glare lenses, safety and comfort are assured for night time driving, through the reduction of glare from headlights and street lights. It also helps in fewer headaches and less eye fatigue generally caused by the reflections from a computer screen or even due to daytime lights. As a result, lenses remain clear and clean, making them virtually invisible to others.
The use of high-index lenses is intended to make lenses as thin and as light as possible, ensuring comfort and style. The use of less material in high index lenses allows for a reduction in lens thickness, offering a wider choice of frames to customers. Lenses are also flatter and will buldge less from the frame, making customers feel more comfortable and stylish.
Choosing a frame from the wide variety of sunglasses that Tina Catherine offers is most often based on trends and style. The choice of the lens however should take into account the best protection for your eyes. This is why TCE&O offers its customers the option to polarize their lenses. Although ordinary tinted lenses can reduce brightness and provide UV protection, only polarized lenses offer better clarity, the ability to see true colors and no glare, all for optimum vision. Polarized lenses offer 100% UVA and UVB protection, and keep eyes safe from potential vision damage.
Another alternative for lenses that offer great protection from harmful UV rays are photochromic lenses. Depending on the needs and lifestyle of each customer, photochromic lenses are an option for those who want their lenses to serve a double purpose: the lenses darken when exposed to ultraviolet radiation and will gradually return to their clear state when returning indoors.
TCE&O offers two different types of lenses to suit customer's needs and preferences.
Plastic lenses are much lighter than glass lenses. Traditional plastic lenses are made from a hard resin that is cast or melded in the wet state into lens blanks. These plastic blanks can be ground into specific shapes to fit any lens frame.
