Frequently Asked Questions

What do the Lens Index numbers mean?

The Lens Index number (1.50, 1.57, 1.53, 1.59, 1.61, 1.67, or 1.74) refers to the degree of refraction the lens provides. This means how much the light that enters the lens is refracted (bent) as it passes through the lens. Lens Index is also related to the thickness of the lens. The higher the index, the thinner the lens will be. Learn more here about what index is best suited for your Rx, lifestyle, and frame selection.

How do I get thinner lenses?

The lens that is preselected as a recommended option in ② Your Lenses during the ordering process will be the best option for your Rx. If you have a strong Rx, a higher lens index number will give you a thinner lens.

What lens coatings do you sell?

All GlassesXperts eyeglasses come with Anti-Scratch Coating and UV Protection Coating that are both absolutely free. We also offer Anti-Reflective (also known as Anti-Glare) Coatings, which reduce reflection on the lenses and the glare you see while you are wearing your glasses.

What are photochromic lenses? Do you carry Transitions®?

Photochromic lenses are specially treated to turn dark when exposed to UV light. When the lenses are out of the sunlight, they become clear again. We carry the Transitions® brand of photochromic lenses for our 1.50, 1.61, and 1.67 lenses, for both single-vision and progressive glasses.

What is the difference between polarized lenses and dark tints? Which one is better for what situations?

Polarized lenses are known for cutting out glare and light intensity which is very noticeable when light reflects off of water, snow, and sand. Dark lens tints are known for only cutting down the intensity of light. Some instance where dark tints are beneficial over polarized lenses is if you are using a digital screen outdoors. This is because polarized lenses will darken your view of the screen. Polarized lenses are known to improve visibility with driving, especially in severe weather conditions, therefore making you a safer driver.
