Digitally customized lenses for all prescriptions

Digital Lenses, or “high definition” as they are also referred to, have been described as the most important improvement in prescription eyewear in the last 100 years. The improvement wearers see in moving from traditional lenses to digital lenses has been compared to the difference in using an old, analog television compared to a new high-definition television, or an early cell phone to today's digital smart phones.

Trivex lenses are thinner and lighter than standard plastic varieties, and also much more durable. It corrects vision without adding thickness, which can distort the wearer's appearance.

Best of all, these lenses are virtually unbreakable, making them a great choice for children and active adults.
