VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron TRY TRIVEX When it comes to selecting a lens material that will supply a high degree of impact resistance, "Trivex" lenses are not only equal to polycarbonate, but they also offer some advantages. Both Trivex and polycarbonate lenses are thinner and lighter than regular plastic lenses, offer 100% protection from the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) light, and are up to ten times more impact- resistant than plastic or glass lenses. Because Trivex lenses are composed of a urethane-based polymer and are made from a cast-molding process similar to the way in which regular plastic lenses are made, they provide the advantage of crisper optics than injection-molded polycarbonate lenses. When optic quality is as important a consideration as safety is, look into Trivex lenses. For optimal comfort, vision and appearance, it's a good idea to have anti- reflective applied to Trivex lenses. This microscopic coating eliminates light reflecting from the front and back surfaces of the lenses, giving the lenses a crystal-clear appearance. SKOWRON EYE CARE has been providing personal, cutting-edge eye care for patients in the Western suburbs since 1983. At Skowron Eye Care, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S. While Trivex lenses are about ten percent lighter than polycarbonate lenses, polycarbonate lenses are about ten percent thinner than Trivex lenses due to a higher index of refraction.
