EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Oct. 1, 2013 - PRLog -- TORRANCE CALIFORNIA – September 6, 2013 – A Torrance optometrist, Michael Hansen of Advanced Eye Care Center, explains, “Compared to polycarbonate lenses, there is less chromatic aberration in Trivex lenses. Its index of refraction is only 1.53, which makes it %10 thicker compared to poly lenses.” Using a thicker lens makes it more resistant to damage, and less chromatic aberration provides a more focused vision.  One might think that a thicker lens would feel heavier and become uncomfortable, but Trivex lenses actually feel lighter than polycarbonate lenses as many people have reported.  The stronger and thicker lens also makes it more suitable for rimless eyeglass wear.

The name Trivex was used in order to incorporate the three main characteristics that make Trivex lenses unique.  These three characteristics are its lightweight feel, impact resistance, and its impeccable quality.  When people purchase Trivex lenses, they come with a scratch resistant coating and %100 UV ray protection.

Being an experienced Torrance optometrist, Hansen possesses a great knowledge of what patients are looking for when purchasing eyeglasses.  He states, “The superior quality of Trivex lenses has made it popular among eyeglass wearers who prefer it for its lightweight, safety and scratch resistant properties.  These lenses are made from advanced plastic lens material that provides better optical performance compared to pure glass or plastic lenses.”

Trivex lenses stand out against polycarbonate lenses because they are sturdier and more durable.  Advanced Eyecare Center, a Torrance optometry practice, not only offers but also recommends (http://advancedeyecarecenter.net/south-bay-area/torrance/) Trivex lenses to their patients who could benefit from it.  They also offer a wide selection of beautiful designer and non-designer frames for your Trivex lens glasses.
