Mr. wears progressive lenses and loves how light his glasses are compared to those of even just a few years ago. LLB has her father's eyes and has worn glasses since second grade. She loves her Airwear lenses. Her lenses take a little more abuse than Mr.'s or mine. She has been hit in the face with a basketball and a volleyball more than once (she's not the most athletic child) and her lenses have always come out of the ordeal unscathed. I would recommend these lenses for their strength alone!
I can't wear contacts and in years past my glasses would be "heavy on my face" by the end of the day. NOT anymore! Airwear lenses are sooo light! I forget I have them on!
In case you need another reason to go with Airwear - Airwear is a "green" company.
A pioneer in optical lenses, Essilor now employs green manufacturing processes in our Airwear® lenses. Airwear® lenses are the first Essilor lens material to go green, significantly reducing its environmental footprint by implementing responsible manufacturing, including:
- Packaging: Essilor uses 100 percent recyclable cardboard made from 100 percent recyclable wooden fibers for Airwear® lenses, helping to eliminate 570,000 pounds of plastic waste every year.
- Water Consumption: Essilor uses 100 percent recycled water for Airwear® lenses, cutting consumption in half and conserving millions of gallons of water.
- Recycling Excess Material: Airwear® re-purposes unused materials for other industries, such as automobiles and writing instruments.
- Donating Eyewear: Essilor supports Lions Club International's Recycle for Sight program, which accepts old, usable glasses and donates them to those in need.
Airwear® lenses are available for single vision and progressive prescriptions, and are compatible with the world's most trusted vision brands, such as Varilux®, Crizal®, Xperio®, DEFINITY® and Transitions®.
