Lens Treatments

Design, treatment, and material are the three components that make up a lens. It is important to choose the correct combination depending on your prescription, frame selection, and lifestyle. Our professionally trained staff will help guide you through your options and get you the correct lenses for your visual needs. Some of the options you may want to consider when purchasing your lenses are as follows:


You hear the term, but what really does it do for your vision? Eyeglass wearers commonly encounter annoying glare and reflections caused by light bouncing off their lenses. This glare makes it more difficult to see, especially at night. Anti-reflective lenses reduce these reflections allowing more light to pass through the lens to your eyes, so you have clearer, sharper vision. Not only can it reduce glare, but these coatings can also reduce scratches, smudges, and even filter some harmful ultra-violet light. With all of these components being reduced, you will have a more pleasant and less distracting view through your lenses. 

It's aesthetically pleasing and allows for clearer, sharper vision.

Photochromic Lenses

Light intelligent lenses, or transition lenses, are a fast and easy way to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays from the sun. No keeping track of two pairs of glasses! Transition lenses adapt to changing light and are dark when outside, and clear when inside. Not all transitions are the same. Kearney Eye Optical offers the newest generation of Transition lenses available including Signature, XTRActive, Vantage, Drivewear, Style Colors and Mirrors.  Visit the Transitions website at ( to learn more. .



The material that is used for lenses is highly dependent on your frame style, prescription and where your glasses are going to be worn. Our opticians will suggest the best material for your needs so that you have a comfortable and long lasting lens experience.

Plastic- This basic lens material is much lighter than glass and is the most economical of the materials.

Polycarbonate- Slightly thinner and lighter than standard plastic lenses, this lens material is also the most durable and impact resistant. These lenses are standard for children under 18 years of age, sports eyewear, and safety glasses due to their virtually unbreakable quality.

Trivex- Durable and thinner than other materials Trivex is a hybrid material that is used for rimless and semi-rimless frames. This is due to the chip resistant and crack resistant feature. This lens is strong and durable..

High Index- The thinnest and lightest weight of the materials. This lens is great for high prescription patients that would usually struggle with heavy thick lenses. Since these lenses are not bulky, wearers benefit from a crisp clear field of vision. This allows those who would usually wear contacts due to their thick heavy lenses, the opportunity to give their eyes a break occasionally from contacts and have glasses that are not a hindrance to their vision or style.
