Acquiring a pair of glasses that are at the same time comfortable, stylish, and protective is no longer an impossible dream.

The combination of Trivex lenses with the expansive collection of high quality, brand name frames at Primary Eyecare guarantees that you will not need to compromise on your choice of style in order to protect your eyes.
Trivex Comfort: Thinner and Lighter
The impressive durability of Trivex material exceeds FDA impact strength requirements significantly. This allows the creation of “minus” lenses with even thinner centers to be safely utilized. Lenses constructed with Trivex material are produced to about a 1.0mm center thicknesss, which is nearly half the center thickness of the average polycarbonate lens. This reduction in thickness is possible in most prescription strengths except those lowest near zero. The thinner the lens, the lighter the weight, and the result is an even more comfortable pair of glasses for the patient.
Trivex Protection: Strength and Durability
When lenses offering impact-resistance and other protective qualities were first introduced, most of the practical applications of these technologies were geared toward the protective eyewear market, which typically includes children’s and sports-related eyewear. Trivex lenses offer greater impact resistance, complete UV protection, and more crisp optics… all at a lighter weight than the typical polycarbonate lens can offer.

Because of the increased These lenses also offer 100% UV protection, built right into the lenses themselves, offering superior protection from the harmful rays of UV radiation.
