Our providers are committed to supporting our Kentucky community through outreach programs in rural locations statewide. Our goal is to ensure all Kentuckians have access to high-quality eye care. We have the privilege of supplying communities in need with glasses through funding from our outreach program, UK Global Ophthalmology. To learn more or donate, click here.

Lens materials

  • Plastic: Plastic is one of the most common lens materials due to its durability and lightweight material.
  • Polycarbonate: These lenses are shatter-proof, making them ideal for children and active adults. Polycarbonate lenses are ideal for strong prescriptions due to their thin profile.
  • High Index: High index lenses are powerful lenses ideal for strong prescriptions. They are designed to be thinner and lighter than regular lenses.
