Enzo Photochromic lenses (Transitions type) in Crystal Grey are engineered with a special blend of High-Index materials. The High index materials give these lenses more impact resistance than traditional plastic lenses. Enzo Optics designed the lenses to meet the needs of the majority of those who appreciate the value of eyewear and advanced technology. Enzo Photochromic lenses quickly adapt between indoor and outdoor conditions, offering an advantage over ordinary clear lenses.
• Change from clear indoors to dark outdoors
• Clear as an ordinary clear lens indoors and at night
• Block 100% of the sun’s harmful UVA & UVB rays
• Wide variety of lens designs to choose from
• Aspherical Designs
• Very dark in bright sunlight
• Shaded in low light
• FDA Approved
• 30% Lighter weight
• Flatter and thinner
Enzo Lenses are aspheric designs which are ideal for stronger prescriptions because they are 30% lighter, flatter and thinner.
They also provide superior optics than ordinary lenses and look better because they lessen farsighted eye magnification and near sighted eye minification.
Our sunglass lenses are impact resistant and a good choice for people who regularly participate in sporting activities, work in a job environment in which their sunglasses may be easily scratched or broken, and for children who may easily drop and scratch their sunglasses.
Enzo Optics also offers many Lens Materials, Lens Types, and Lens Treatments which we will outline.
POLYCARBONATE - Polycarbonate Lenses are virtually unbreakable and block 100% of harmful UV light making them the safest lens available. Lenses in a material that is one third the weight and thickness of standard plastic lenses means the eyewear will be more comfortable and better looking.
HIGH INDEX (Thin Lenses) – High index Lenses are a hi-tech plastic lens material which reduces lens thickness and weight. High Index lenses are ideal for high astigmatic corrections. They provide flatter curves and therefore, they provide better cosmetics than glass or plastic lenses.
PLASTIC (Hard Resin) – Plastic Lenses are half the weight of glass and can be tinted to almost any color or darkness, however they are not as impact resistant as polycarbonate or trivex lenses.
TRIVEX – Trivex lens material is the world’s first tri-performance lens material: offering a triple combination of features never before found in a single material. Its qualities are superior optics, impact resistant, and ultra light weight.
GLASS - Glass lens material is scratch resistant and offers good optics, however, glass lenses are twice as heavy as plastic lenses and offers reduced impact resistance.
SINGLE VISION LENSES -Single vision lenses are all-purpose eyeglass lenses for people who wear glasses for distance or near vision. Single vision lenses are available in all lens materials.
ASPHERIC LENSES – The aspheric lens provides for a thinner, lighter in weight design versus the traditional spherical lenses and eliminates the bulging appearance of thick lenses for people with stronger prescriptions. Aspheric lenses are especially beneficial for farsighted people with high plus prescriptions.
PROGRESSIVE LENSES (No Line Bifocals) – The multifocal lens of choice, progressives are most like natural vision with three major focus areas: near, intermediate, and distance. This “no line” lens allows the wearer to adapt easily and appear cosmetically appealing. Progressives come in all lens materials and are available in aspheric.
FREE-FORM LENS TECHNOLOGY – Freeform, or direct surfacing makes it possible to grind the front, back, or both sides of a lens blank as needed to produce an advanced lens design. A computer numerically controlled (CNC) freeform generator creates the lens surface according to the desired parameters, which may include optical variables beyond the usual sphere, cylinder, and axis of the prescription. In all situations the key to a successful digital design is the design its self.
NEAR VARIABLE LENSES – (Computer Lenses) – Near Variable Lenses are useful for a wide range of activities, while being specifically fabricated for the best reading and intermediate ranges. Typically these lenses are designed for use on a computer to alleviate eye strain. Near variable lenses are entered into the ROE system with the doctor’s multifocal RX and near pupilary distance. The lab will then correct the RX to the proper powers.
FLAT-TOP BIFOCALS – As the name suggests, the distance and reading portions of this lens are separated by a visible flat line. Flat-top bifocals are available in every type of lens material.
TRI-FOCALS – This lens is available in a variety of designs with a flat-top. Tri-focals provide an additional segment to the bifocal lens, which allows clear vision at arms length.
SCRATCH COATING – Reduces and minimizes scratching on all materials.
DIAMOND- 2 HARD COAT – More scratch resistant than other major super hard coatings Diamond-2 offers outstanding performance in thermal shock tests, unsurpassed adhesion, durability, and mechanical resistance that significantly extends the life of all Plastic, Polycarbonate, Hi-Index, and Trivex materials.
UV 400 – Exposure to UV light has been linked to cataracts, retinal damage, and macular degeneration. Polycarbonate and High-Index lenses have built in filters that block UV light.
ANTI-REFLECTIVE – Anti-Reflective lenses improve vision clarity by allowing more light to reach the eye. Anti-Reflective lenses dramatically improve the appearance of lenses by making them less reflective and improves night driving by reducing night time glare. Our Clarity Universal lenses feature increased scratch protection and easy cleaning.
TINTS – Colored pigment added to lenses for sunglasses, function, or fashion.
PHOTOCHROMIC LENSES - These lenses adjust to light conditions and offer %100 UV protection. Transitions lenses are activated by UV light and are virtually clear indoors. Transitions are made in all lens materials except glass. Glass photochromic lenses are called Photogrey (PGX) or Photobrown (PBX). Glass is limited to certain designs.
POLARIZED LENSES – Polarized lenses are absolutely the best option for sunglasses. Special filters in the lens work to eliminate annoying glare, which can sometimes prove dangerous. Polarized lenses are perfect for fishing, water sports, and winter activities. These lenses block 100% of harmful UV light and are available in Plastic, Polycarbonate, Trivex, and Glass.
