All About Eyeglass Lenses
The eyeglass lenses and lens treatments you choose should help you see clearly in all of life’s activities. Whether you’re driving, using a computer, reading a book, looking at your phone, or playing sports, clear vision through quality lenses will lead to an enriched life.
Our optical staff at Accent Vision Care will ask you about what you do for work, whether you have a commute, and what kind of hobbies you enjoy so they can recommend lens options which will best meet the visual needs of your lifestyle. They are committed to providing exceptional customer service in the optical boutique, and their recommendations are tailored to your individual needs and concerns.
We offer the highest quality lens options in our optical to ensure you will experience crystal-clear, comfortable vision, in any setting. When selecting your lenses, there is some basic terminology which is helpful to understand.
Eyeglass lens types include the following:
- Single vision lenses: These lenses have one dioptric power used throughout the entire lens. They are used to correct vision for both near and far distances.
- Bifocal lenses: These lenses contain two prescriptions that have a dividing line between them. The top of the lens corrects for farsightedness and the bottom corrects for nearsightedness.
- Trifocal lenses: These lenses include three prescriptions separated by lines and correct faraway, intermediate, and near vision.
- Progressive lenses: These lenses also offer multiple prescriptions in one lens, but they are line-free, offering a smooth transition when shifting your view between the prescriptions. At Accent Vision Care, we are proud to offer the Varilux progressive lens, which provide sharp vision at every distance, and provide you with the most natural vision possible.
Eyeglass lens materials can include polycarbonate, trivex, and high index plastic. Our lenses can be treated for added benefits including UV-blocking treatment, photochromic treatment, scratch-resistant coating, and glare control coating to make your vision experience even more comfortable. We offer the highest quality lenses and lens treatments, including the following:
- Crizal® No Glare Lenses which help provide you with superior protection against glare, scratches, smudges, and UV light.
- Transitions® Light Intelligent LensesTM which fit every lifestyle and every age. Not only do they adjust from fully clear indoors to the perfect tint outdoors, but they also block dangerous UV rays and filter Harmful Blue Light†, which can be found outdoors and from digital devices.
- Varilux® progressive lenses which provide sharp vision at every distance—even in dimly lit conditions—that eliminates the blurriness, off-balance feeling, and low-light issues of ordinary progressive lenses. Bifocal lenses only allow you to clearly see far away and up close. Objects at arm’s length will still appear blurry. Additionally, there is an abrupt change between the near and far viewing areas. Varilux progressive lenses provide sharp vision and smooth transitions at any distance.
We carry a diverse and high-quality collection of sunglasses which will protect your eyes from damaging UV rays and enable you to experience clear, comfortable vision when you’re driving, playing sports, or engaging in any sort of outdoor activity. We are proud to carry many top brands in our optical, including Maui Jim sunglasses, which are not only very stylish, but feature PolarizedPlus2® technology which reduces the impact of the sun’s harsh glare while offering relief from a number of long-term health risks.

What is Myopia Control?
Various forms of myopia control help slow or stop the progression of myopia, preventing nearsightedness from getting worse. One form of myopia control treatment is available through MiSight® contacts, the first and only soft contact lenses that are FDA approved to slow the progression of myopia in children age 8-12 at the start of treatment. Approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) means that the lenses have been tested over a long period and have met all the safety requirements established.
At Accent Vision Care, we are certified providers of MiSight®1 Day contact lenses. This form of myopia management is safe and proven to be effective. Kids ages 8-12 wearing MiSight® 1-day contact lenses experienced an average of 59 percent reduction of myopia progression when used over three years.²
