Lens Materials

Whether you would like sunglasses, transitional lenses, or light-weight glasses, we have a lens material that is just right for you. Review our selection of lens materials below and contact our optical centers if you have questions.

Trivex™: Tri-Performance Lens

Trivex™ Tri-Performance lenses are ultra lightweight and impact resistant, even stronger than polycarbonate lenses. These superior vision aides are available in:

  • Single Vision
  • Flat Top 28 Bifocals
  • Progressive Addition Lenses
  • Transition Gray or Brown

High Index Materials

High index materials reduce lens thickness and are an excellent choice for high-powered prescriptions. These optics are available in:

  • 1.60 index of refraction
  • 1.67 index of refraction
  • 1.74 index of refraction


Polycarbonate lenses are impact resistant. The thinness of these lenses provides excellent cosmetic appeal.


Sunglasses eliminate daytime glare and protect the eyes from sunlight. We offer sunglasses in:

  • Polarized Lenses (to dim light)
  • UV Blocker (to eliminate glare from roads, snow, and water)

Come to our Fayetteville location to see our exclusive collection of Maui Jim, Michael Kors, Nautica®, Ray Ban, Nike®, Calvin Klein sunglasses — all available at an affordable price.


The following is a list of how polarized sunglasses can help enhance specific activities we all take part in.

JOGGING/RUNNING: Polarized photochromics adapt to changing conditions. Gray or gray-green is typically best for bright sun and true color viewing, while brown provides visual contrast and definition.

HIKING/CLIMBING/MOUNTAIN BIKING/CYCLING: Yellow-based tints/copper in medium density for visual contrast and definition. Photochromic polarized may work for some, but cyclists may prefer non-photochromics for rapidly changing light conditions.

SNOW SKIING/ SNOWBOARDING: Amber/brown is contrast-enhancing—amber in low light (clouds) and brown for brighter light (full sun). Rose/vermillion hues also offer high contrast with reduced glare. Dark amber works well in high altitudes and/or bright light.

CYCLING OR MOTORCYCLING: Polarized photochromics may be the best choice, because the lens’ changeability adapts to various environments and conditions. Polarization may also make hot road surfaces look slimy, oily or shimmery, which for some can cause visual confusion and loss of performance and safety.

OUTDOOR CONTACT SPORTS: Football/soccer: Light (low light conditions) to dark (bright light conditions) gray or polarized photochromic gray.

BASEBALL: High-contrast gray, brown, or green; brown or green are best for viewing the baseball against the sky or grass.

SHOOTING SPORTS: Hunting: Brown/copper for bright light; yellow/amber for low light.
Target/sporting clay/trap shooting: Medium orange or copper helps define objects and enhance contrast.

WATERSPORTS:  Skiing/Jet skiing: Dark gray for bright sun; light to medium gray in cloudy or low light conditions.
Surfing/Wakeboarding: Yellow/light copper for low light conditions and brown for sunny conditions for visual definition. Gray can inhibit reading the water.
Boating: Dark gray or dark brown in mid-day, bright sunlight. Vermillion/rose for dawn and dusk.
Kayaking: Yellow/light copper for hazy conditions; gray for bright sun.

Deep, dark or “blue” water (e.g., open ocean): Gray
Shallow “brown” water (e.g., streams): Brown/copper
Grassy-bottomed water: Green

TENNIS/RACQUET SPORTS: Yellow-based tints and specialty tints (e.g., blue/teal) that highlight the yellow tennis ball.

GOLFING:  Fairway: Gray and gray-green are neutral and provide true color perception, which some golfers prefer, while brown/copper/amber hues increase contrast and object recognition, like a white golf ball against a blue sky or green grass.
Greens: Both medium copper and orange help players read the breaks, while dark copper/brown works best in bright sunlight.
Overall: Brown polarized photochromics change density with changing course conditions

Computer Glasses

We offer Access® Computer Lenses, which allow for clear viewing of the computer and nearby areas, while maintaining clarity up to approximately seven feet away.

Lens Coatings

Lens coatings can help to protect both your lenses and your eyes. We offer lens coatings for people who are sensitive to light and glare, as well as for those who would like to keep their lenses scratch-free. The following lenses are available at our practice:

Transition Lenses

Transition lenses remain clear while you are indoors but can change to a dark gray or brown when you go outside on a sunny or even an overcast day. They provide you with protection from harmful UV rays, decrease glare, and increase your level of comfort, especially if your eyes are sensitive to light.

Antireflective Coating

Antireflective coating is a great option to decrease troublesome glare and reflections. They also eliminate reflections on your lenses in photographs. Additionally, antireflective coating is a great option for patients with cataracts, who are particularly subject to glare due to the cloudiness of their natural lenses.

Scratch-Free “Hard” Coats

Hard coats help to prevent scratches from forming on your lenses and generally make lenses last longer than those without a protective coating.

General Eyewear Care Guide

  • Your eyewear is customized for your vision, and should not be worn by anyone else.
  • Always take your glasses on and off with two hands.
  • When eyewear is not on your face, always keep in your case.
  • If your case is not available, never place glasses lens side down.
  • Stop in regularly for adjustments.

Cleaning Instructions 

  • Spray lenses with AR coat safe, eyeglass cleaner. If not available run under warm water to remove debris.
  • Wipe lenses with a clean micro fiber cotton cloth.
  • Cloths are recommended to be cleaned with dish soap and warm water weekly. Let air dry.
  • Rubbing alcohol will remove hairspray and excess oil.
  • NEVER use Windex or ammonia based cleaners on your eyeglasses. This will remove any coatings applied to the lenses.

By reducing corneal irregularities, GP lenses help resolve a wide variety of vision problems, thereby optimizing patients’ visual potential.

  • Aspheric GP lenses
  • Bridge GP lenses
  • Keratoconic lenses
  • Super Add multifocal lenses
  • Toric lenses
  • Progressive multifocal lenses

SynergEyes® Hybrid Contact Lenses

SynergEyes® hybrid contact lenses represent one of the latest technologies in vision correction. The SynergEyes® family of contact lenses merges the comfort of a soft contact lens with the optical properties of a gas permeable lens to optimize both vision and comfort. Lenses are designed with a soft contact lens edge and a gas permeable contact lens center. Lens designs are available for myopia, hyperopia, astigmatic, keratoconus, and postsurgical correction.

Custom Contact Lenses

Cape Fear Eye Associates offers custom contact lenses made to order for your eyes. Lenses are designed using optical measurements taken during a contact lens evaluation along with a comprehensive eye examination to optimize the fit and comfort of the contact lens. Custom contacts are available in quarterly and annual replacement periods.
