THE MYSTIQUE OF GLASS
You hardly ever hear of glass prescription lenses anymore. Yes, they are still available. Probably one of the drawbacks to glass progressive lenses was their lack of availability in the new digital designs. That is now a thing of the past, so you can get a newly designed digital progressive bifocal lens in most any glass material that was ever available.
After years of declining sales, interest in glass lenses is starting to grow anew.
Advances in digital free-form processing, thinner and lighter material choices together with the public's unquenchable desire for "scratch-proof" eyewear are fueling a steadily growing demand for what glass lenses have always promised: superior optics, superior sun protection and unparalleled scratch resistance.
The optical qualities of crown glass lenses are undisputed. Not only do glass surfaces highly resist the degrading scatter of fine scratches, they are also immune to the effects of contact and exposure to household solvents such as alcohol, acetone or the caustic pH of common cleaning agents, including oven and wheel cleaners. And no matter how you choose to clean them-from shirttail to sweater or sponge-lenses made of glass do not need the careful approach in cleaning as do the plastic lenses. In fact, glass lenses stored without a case will, with just a few quick wipes, look like a million dollars when the return to duty calls. But there is always the gorilla in the room with glass: the dilemma of its weight. On one hand, who wants heavy glasses? On the other, the added heft of glass lenses sends subtle signals of quality. Rather than light and cheap-"like plastic"-glass subliminally conveys substance and value.
