The thinnest lens material we offer is Polycarbonate. This is a thinner and lighter material than the standard Plastic CR-39 Lens.
We do not carry Transitions® name-brand, but we do offer photochromic lenses which, in direct UV or sunlight, darken to help with the brightness.
Polycarbonate lenses are our mid-grade lens that is recommended for most prescriptions. It is impact resistant, and is a thinner option when compared to the standard plastic CR-39 lens.
The SPH or Sphere portion of your prescription pertains to the overall shape of the eye. The CYL or Cylinder portion of the prescription indicates whether or not you have astigmatism. Astigmatism is caused whenever the human eye is mishapen like an oval instead of a perfect circle. The Axis of your prescription is the degree at which your astigmatism is set. Some prescriptions have an 'ADD' power which indicates the need for a bifocal or progressive lens.
Single Vision means that the lenses only correct for distance or reading vision. Bifocals and Progressive lenses are both multi-focal lenses that correct both distance and reading vision, at the same time. Bifocal lenses have a visible line that separates the bifocal from the distance portion of the lens. Progressive lenses, also referred as "no-line bifocals" do not have the line, but gradually progress from the distance to reading portion of the lens.
OD = Right Eye; OS = Left Eye; ADD = Additional power; Sph = Sphere; CYL = Cylinder; PD = Pupillary Distance; OU = Oculus Uterique (Latin for "both eyes").
Your PD is the measurement of the distance between the centers of your pupils. You can measure this by holding a millimeter ruler up to your eyes while you stare into the distance. In some cases, your PD can be obtained by your prescribing physician. If you are unsure, you can visit one of our Success Vision locations.
Success Vision will be able to fill most prescriptions, but we do have parameters. If you are unable to select your prescription when placing your order, contact your local Success Vision Express location for more information.

This is different for each person. Generally speaking, if you have metal allergies, you may prefer a plastic frame. If you want a lighter weight frame, a metal frame may be your preference.
These numbers indicate the measurements of your frame. They represent the Lens Width, Bridge (size) and Temple Length (in milimeters). e.g. 51-17-145 would be a Lens Width of 51mm, a Bridge size of 17mm and a Temple Length of 145mm. In selecting frames, these multiple sizes ensure a comfortable fit. Not all frames with an Lens Width of 51mm will fit the same, as the Bridge size and Temple Length will effect the fit.
A Full-rim is a frame which has material framing the lens fully. A Semi-rimless frame (also known as "Half-rim") has a portion of the lens which appears to float.
