At FramesDirect.com, we use lenses manufactured by The Essilor Group, a world leader in corrective eyewear. Essilor stands at the forefront of its field, providing the highest-quality eyeglass lenses made with innovative technology and superb craftsmanship.
High-quality progressive lenses are seamless ‘trifocals’ for the modern age. This lens type is similar to bifocals, with two major differences. First, unlike bifocals, progressive lenses have no ‘lines’ dividing the different strengths in the lenses. No one can tell you're wearing progressives; they look like single-vision lenses. Also, bifocals have two correction zones, and progressive lenses have three: distance correction at the top, intermediate in the middle, and reading at the bottom.
We use only the highest-quality digital progressive lenses, manufactured by Essilor. When choosing your lens type, select 'Progressive No Line.'

Transitions® lenses, or photochromic lenses, are high-quality eyeglass lenses that transform into sunglasses. They darken in bright light and fade to clear in dimmer light, adapting to create the optimal vision in any conditions.
Experience the thinnest, flattest, and most cosmetically appealing lens ever developed when you opt for high index 1.74 lenses. These lenses are nearly 50 percent thinner than plastic, and 5 percent thinner than 1.67 high index lenses, offering the ultimate in technology and cosmetics. The thinner lens is much more flattering, reducing the distortion that results from a strong prescription made in a lower-quality lens. Choose 'Thinnest' from the lens options for high index 1.74 lenses.
Keep your eyes safe, protected, and comfortable with add-on treatments and lens coatings.
Add extra protection to your eyes with our UV-blocking coating that protects you from 100% of UVA and UVB rays. Exposure to UV rays can potentially lead to eye health problems and skin damage. Because UV protection is important in preserving your eye health further down the road, most of the lenses available at FramesDirect.com—including prescription sunglasses and eyeglasses lenses—come with UV coating at no additional cost.
