    Optical Lenses Tinting

    Lens Tinting

    Your optician in Los Angeles can help with the correct lens tinting for your needs. An optometrist is the one who determines your prescription. However, an optician is the one trained in customizing your eyeglass lenses. Part of the process of creating glasses for you entails a tinting process that allows you to have more options than just gray or brown tint. The process isn't as simple as merely applying a dye to your lenses.

    Lenses aren't tinted the same, but one of the more common methods is heat treatment. The tinting process depends on the material of the lenses. Plastic is a common material for glass lenses nowadays, but they're not always the most durable. A person may choose high-index lenses, polycarbonate, or Trivex lenses. Although polycarbonate is durable, you can also get Trivex which is lighter weight and much more durable. These lenses were originally used by helicopter windshields in the military. All of these options require a heat-treatment process. The process can be tinted through a heat treatment applied to the specially formulated dye. The heat is nearly 200 degrees Fahrenheit and is applied after the lenses are submerged in a dye. The darkness of the color determines how long the lenses must be submerged. Any color is possible with this process, but most colors won't last as long as a traditional sunglass-shade dye.

    There's a lot to consider when choosing the type of lenses you want as well as the shade and level of tint. Miretsky can help you determine the ideal combination for your lifestyle. Below are a few of the color options offered to tint your glasses.

    Green lenses are very similar to brown or gray lenses in terms of their benefits. They provide the wearer with better contrast than gray or brown lenses. They're ideal for both sunny and cloudy conditions and even in low-light environments. They reduce glare well. They're recommended if you cycle, ski, or participate in water sports.

    Yellow lenses are ideal for skiing and any other outdoor activities where glare is an issue. They're also beneficial for reducing eye strain caused by the light from computers or other electronics, making them ideal when playing games or working on the computer. This is beneficial because they filter out blue light. Additionally, they provide a high level of visual clarity compared to other lenses, even in low light, haze, and fog. Unfortunately, this color of lenses may cause color distortion.

    Blue and purple lenses supply UV protection. The blue has a calming effect on your eyes. Additionally, the blue shade can improve color perception. These shades also reduce glare in the snow or during water sports. The color is ideal for haze and fog as well. They work well for people who are spectators of outdoor sports or who golf. It assists you in seeing contour better than other options.

    Rose, pink, and red sunglasses are beneficial when your eyes are adjusting to contrast. They reduce glare, so they're ideal for people when they're skiing. They enhance your driving visibility well, especially since they improve your depth perception. They also assist with reducing eye strain, in particular, for people who use the computer or gaming system frequently because they block blue light.
