VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron NOT SCRATCHING THE SURFACE "Polycarbonate" lenses have superior impact resistance and, therefore, are the perfect choice for children's eyewear and protective eyewear. Used to fabricate the cockpits of fighter jets, polycarbonate was one of the first thinner and lighter lens materials to come out of the jet age. With a higher index of refraction and lower specific gravity, polycarbonate lenses are thinner and lighter than their plastic and glass counterparts. Yet, as impact- resistant as polycarbonate is, it is also very susceptible to scratching. With this in mind, it is highly recommended that polycarbonate lenses be treated with an anti-scratch coating, which can make the plastic nearly as scratch- resistant as glass. Polycarbonate also offers inherent protection from ultraviolet (UV) rays. Polycarbonate lenses are ideal for strong prescriptions since they do not add thickness when correcting vision, minimizing any distortion. To schedule an appointment, please call SKOWRON EYE CARE. Our showroom is stocked with the latest and greatest trends in budget and designer eyewear. Our goal is to help you maintain a lifetime of healthy, clear, comfortable vision by using the latest in technology from in-vogue eyewear and eyeglasses to complex contact lenses to LASIK eye surgery. At Skowron Eye Care, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S. Trivex is another highly impact-resistant lens material that is equal to polycarbonate. EYE CARE SKOWRON 370 N.
