The opticians at Tina Catherine understand the meticulous process of surfacing and edging ophthalmic lenses and are thorough in their organization and work. By having their own laboratory, Tina Catherine ensures and controls the quality of their lenses.
All lenses can be digitally surfaced to eliminate distortion, provide sharper vision and improve field of view. Tina Catherine offers the following options when creating the perfect quality lenses for their customers.
All lenses 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. They also reduce headaches and decrease eye fatigue generally caused by the reflections from a computer screen or even 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. Lenses are also flatter and bulge less from the frame, making the wearer feel more comfortable and stylish.
Choosing a frame from the wide variety of sunglasses 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 TCEO 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 and the ability to see true colors without the 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.
Plastic lenses are much lighter than glass lenses. Traditional plastic lenses are made from a hard resin that is cast or molded into lens blanks. These plastic blanks can be ground into specific shapes to fit any lens shape.
Polycarbonate lenses are light and safe. They provide a unique combination of benefits that make it the ideal choice for today’s active lifestyles, providing the wearer with superior comfort and performance. These lenses also come with built-in ultraviolet protection.
