Lens Extras

Here at Krishna Vision Optician we supply a huge range of lens options to cater for all your visual requirements. Our main lens upgrade options are listed below but if there is anything specific you need please feel free to contact us.

– Hard Coated Lenses

These are more resilient than normal plastic lenses, giving greater protection against the knocks and scrapes of everyday life. This prolongs the life of your lenses.

– Anti Reflective (AR) Lenses

Anti Reflective coatings are added to spectacle lenses to reduce the reflections that occur on both surfaces of a lens thereby increasing visible light transmission. These properties allow an AR lens to give sharper vision especially in situations of critical vision such as night driving or when using a computer or tablet. Another benefit from their glare reducing properties is that others will not notice any unsightly reflections.

All our Premium easy clean AR lenses also have anti static, smudge resistant and hydrophobic properties which keep the lenses cleaner for longer.

The newest addition to our selection of AR lenses is the cutting edge Super Reduced Blue lens which has been designed to reduce the harmful effects of blue light emitted by everyday technology such as computers screens, tablets and mobile phones.

– Thin and Light Lenses

These high index materials bend light more effectively therefore allowing them to be up to 50% thinner and lighter than standard lenses. This can improve the comfort and appearance of lenses with higher prescription strengths. Our full selection of Thin and Light lenses have 100% UV protection and all come with Anti Reflection as standard.

– Super Tuff Lenses

Super Tuff lenses are ten times stronger and up to 30% lighter and 20% thinner than conventional lenses. They are great for kids and people with an active lifestyle. Super Tuff lenses are highly recommended with all rimless and half rim eyewear.

– Photochromic Lenses

Lenses that react to varying light conditions, changing from clear lenses (indoors) to darker tinted lenses (outdoors). This allows for improved visual comfort in sunlight and UV protection.

Many of our lenses have the option to be upgraded to the most cutting edge Transitions Adaptive lenses. The newest additions to the collection are the everyday wear Transitions Signature and Transitions XTRActive lenses. Finally the best sunwear Transitions DriveWear lens combines NuPolar polarisation and Transitions photochromic technology for the ultimate outdoor experience.

– Polarised Lenses

Polarised lenses are dark tinted lenses that with technology to reduce reflections off horizontal surfaces. This technology gives unparalleled visual comfort, clarity and UV protection in bright and sunny conditions. These glare reducing properties of Polarised lenses are useful for driving, outdoor sports and for anyone who suffers from eyestrain and headaches in bright sunlight.

– Tinted Lenses

These are available in numerous colours and varying densities. They can be used to enhance the cosmetic appearance of everyday glasses or combined with a UV filter for prescription sunglasses.
