Choosing The Right Lens Options, Materials and Coatings for your Eyeglasses and Sunglasses

Our opticians are always available and happy to make recommendations for your lens selection. We also always review submitted orders and will contact you if we have any recommendations for changes based on your prescription, measurements or frame choice.

Plano lenses – These lenses are non-prescription. The demo lenses that come in eyeglass frames are not meant to be worn. If someone wants to wear clear glasses with no prescription, they still need to get optical quality plano lenses. They can also add special features like anti-reflective coating, transitions or blue blocking.

Basic Reader lenses – These lenses are basic plus powers with no actual prescription from an eye doctor. They are similar to over the counter readers, except the lenses we make will be custom fitted high grade optical quality with premium anti-reflective coating.

Single Vision lenses – These lenses are one prescription for distance, intermediate (e.g. computer use) or near (e.g. reading use).

Progressive and multifocal lenses – These lenses have multiple prescriptions built into the lens so you can see your distance, near and everything in between.


  • CR39 Plastic lenses – Basic lenses with excellent acuity.
  • Polycarbonate lenses – For a slightly heavier prescription, this is a thinner and lighter option. It is also impact resistant making it great for sports for safety reason. It is also the required lens for children and young adults under 18.
  • 1.67 High Index lenses – For heavy prescriptions, this lens will be much thinner and lighter.
  • 1.74 High Index lenses -  The thinnest and lightest lens on the market.

Anti-Reflective Coating (AR) – AR coating prevents glare and increases the acuity of the lens. Ours is so advanced, it has a 2-year warranty against surface defects and minor scratches.

Blue Blocking – Blue light filtering lenses protect your eyes from the damaging HEV light emitted from your iPhones, iPads, PDAs, and computer screens.

Transitions – These lenses react to UV by getting darker, which means you can enjoy the convenience of going in and out without having to alternate between eyeglasses and sunglasses – the lenses will adjust by getting clearer and darker on their own.

Polarized lenses – these sunglass lenses cut glare by blocking reflecting light bouncing off of surfaces; a great choice for optimized sunglass performance.

Digital lenses – these lenses are laser surfaced and digitally compensated giving you High Definition quality vision. It's like going from an old tube TV to the latest digital flat screen TV. It is a recommended upgrade for single vision lenses. All of our progressive lenses are automatically digital.

Anne et Valentin Picture Eyeglasses

Homage to the Stencil font, of course, whose historic place in typography makes it a prime graphic and artistic inspiration. Our designers have drawn bold, acetate frames with structured geometries, which use glimpses of transparency to highlight layered plays of material and color.
STENCIL plays with voids and masses, shapes and shades, and depths too, its strong forms both light and structured. It is above all the delineation of color that creates tension and complementarity, giving the concept its full expression.The contrast between soft lines and very marked breaks gives rise to cheerful, quite singular objects, which punctuate the spirit and enhance the face. The result is joyous, very warm and particularly playful, with frank colors and intersecting lines that reference American Abstract art, and legendary artist Jasper Johns in particular. Creating frames both substantial and airy was Anne&Valentin’s challenge. True eyewear lovers will appreciate the result.

 The Picture are cat eye style eyeglasses.

PICTURE is modern, assertive, arty, and excessively chic. Its architectural thicknesses and its structuring square shape make it a remarkable, offbeat model. Emancipated and independent, to be seen in art galleries of course, in big cities always, and in circles where voluble eccentricity is not a phase, but a real state of mind.
