Polycarbonate Lenses

child wearing polycarbonate glasses, Carteret NJPolycarbonate and Trivex lenses are special high index lenses that offer superior impact resistance. These lenses are up to 10 times more impact resistant than regular plastic lenses, so at Carteret Eyecare Associates, the optometrist or optician may recommend eyeglasses with lenses made out of this material as an ideal choice for children’s eyewear, safety glasses, and for anyone with an active lifestyle who wants a thinner, lighter, safer lens.

Trivex lenses may be slightly thicker than polycarbonate lenses, but they provide comparable impact resistance and, like polycarbonate lenses, they block 100% of the sun’s harmful UV rays.
