Premium HD Lenses

There are so many choices for lenses and coatings, buying lenses can be frustrating, not knowing which lens offers the best features and value. We make it simple by using the best lenses available.

Lens Guide    Fitting Guide

Since 1950 we have been in the optical business. Having a state-of-the-art in-house optical finishing lab, we know quality when it comes to lenses. From lens materials, polarized filters, UV, anti-reflective, hydrophobic, oleophobic and scratch resistant coatings, we only use the best. You will see the difference!

We don’t use the cheap lenses typically used by chain stores. 

 

 

Lens Types

 

Single-vision lenses

These lenses are typicallly for correction of distance, reading, for computer use and other typical applications. They provide one constant prescription throughout the entire lens. 

 

Progressive Lenses

Often referred to as no-line or multi-focal, these have replaced the traditional unattractive lined bifocal lenses.

 

Mike & Martin Lenses

All Mike & Martin lenses come standard with premium coatings that typically cost much more.

 

 

Lens materials

Thin & Lite 1.59 Index Polycarbonate

We start with the best quality polycarbonate lens blank. They have a high abbe value which in layman terms, means better acuity and clearer vision. It includes a hydrophobic anti-reflective coating and 100% UV protection. The hydrophobic properties make them super slick helping to repel dirt, oil, water, fingerprints and smudges. Making them easier to clean and keep clean than ever before. The anti-reflective properties offer superior scratch resistance, block the glare of overhead lights, computers, headlights while driving at night, and increase light transmission giving you sharper clearer vison. Also, it makes our lenses aesthetically pleasing, and to us that matters.

Super Thin & Lite Hi-Index 1.61

When your combined prescription power is over 6 diopters, we switch to this lens material. We have found that is where you start to gain an optical and cosmetic advantage from these hi-index of refraction super-thin lenses. Remember we have been doing this for over 65 years and we know. It includes all the same features as our polycarbonate lens. Since we do everything in-house we will upgrade you automatically at no additional charge, because we want you to love your glasses and everyone else to love them on you!

CR-39 Polarized

These are the “Crème de la crème” when it comes to polarized lenses. The MM filters provide excellent clarity, contrast, maximum UV protection and durability. They eliminate glare caused by light reflecting on a flat surface like water, sand, snow and the road. Mike Martin himself is an avid outdoorsman and has spent years trying all the different polarized filters. This is what he wears everyday!

 

 

 

 

Fitting Guide

If you currently wear glasses you can find the size on the inside of the temple or inside the bridge.

The measurement is usually written like this temple below: 45-22-145

 

    

                             

 

How to measure your PD

The Pupillary Distance or “PD”  measures the distance between your pupils, measured in milimeters. This guarantees the optical center of your prescription lenses is in the correct spot. 

Your prescription may have your PD already listed. If not, use your friend or a mirror to help you take the measurement.

When you wish to measure this yourself, the guide below will arm you with simple, step-by-step instructions to measure your PD at home.

In the example image above, the PD measured 59. Here is how that was determined:

  1. Stand approximately 10 inches from the mirror.
  2. Holding your head straight and still, place the millimeter ruler against your brow.
  3. With your right eye closed, line up the ZERO mark with your left pupil.
  4. With the ruler on your brow, next close only your left eye and read where your right pupil lines up.  
  5. This is your PD.

Measure 3-4 times for accuracy and simply use the average. A typical range for children is 43-53, and for adults it is 54-74.

If you have any questions, call or email one of our Opticians at 903-345-6453 or help@mikeandmartin.com, and we will be happy to assist you.
