Eyeglasses and lenses are part of a very large and prominent market for consumers in the US. Nearly 150 million adults, totalling to 64% of US adults, wear prescription eyewear. Reports show that consumers plan to spend $173 on each glasses purchase, and most of those users need replacement glasses every 1 to 3 years. This cycle can be an expensive one, which is why replacement lenses may be a more affordable and accessible option.
Replacement lenses come in all shapes, sizes, colors, styles, and prescriptions. Choosing your next replacement lenses offers a world of possibilities to the wearer, from lens materials, coatings, tints and polarization all offering different benefits and uses. The most common materials are plastic, polycarbonate, and glass, which each have their own level of vision clarity and durability. Lens coatings are also an option for replacement lens users, offering perks like scratch resistance, UV-protection, anti-reflection, blue-blocking, and anti-fog. Tinted lenses are not only a stylistic choice, but offer many other benefits for the users. For example, blue lenses enhance vision in foggy weather and pink lenses enhance depth perception and may even reduce migraines.
Replacement lenses for sunglasses are another type of glasses that offer a wide range of options for users. Polarized lenses scatter light to reduce intensity of sunlight, and transition or photochromic lenses dark when exposed to UV rays. The best part is, sunglass replacement lenses can be added to any frames with or without a prescription.
Overall, replacement lenses are a more affordable, quick, and versatile way to up your style while maintaining that clear and hassle free vision tha
