Rx Glass

Glass Ophthalmic and Precision Glass Lenses


Glass lenses still remain the lens of choice for some wearers due to unequaled scratch resistance and excellent optical clarity.  People with hobbies or who work in dusty environments – such as farmers – have a distinct preference for glass lenses due to their ability to resist scratching.
