Originally developed for the aerospace industry, polycarbonate is a large part of VISION EASE innovation. Our polycarbonate lenses are manufactured with proprietary, fourth-generation water-white polycarbonate resins, are up to 50% lighter and thinner than plastic alternatives and 10 times more impact-resistant. VISION EASE polycarbonate lenses have specific gravity of 1.21. Plus, they have an index of refraction of 1.586 and can be made as thin as a 1.0 mm center.
Ideal for more than 80% of all prescriptions, VISION EASE polycarbonate lenses can be mounted without scratching, cracking or breaking. They also allow various treatments, including photochromic and polarized, making them the most functional and highest performing material in the industry.
