Topology Lenses

Topology lens options are simple, because we only use the very best lenses and include high index and premium coatings as standard.

Our 3D scanning and custom frame sculpting technology makes us the only brand that can fulfill all prescriptions, even progressive, more accurately than an optical store.

All prescriptions welcome


Sunglass or clear lenses with no optical adjustment.

Single Vision

The most common prescription type.


Distance and reading zones in one lens.


No-line, blended distance and reading with an intermediate zone.

All vision needs welcome

Strong Prescriptions

We especially welcome customers with strong prescriptions and never charge extra for stronger prescription lenses. We custom calibrate for clearer vision and ensure no peripheral distortion.

High Index Lenses

We always automatically use the highest index appropriate to your prescription, up to 1.74 with no extra charge.


Topology custom fit eyeglasses are an excellent choice for customers with astigmatism thanks to the precision placement of the lens relative to the eye.

Transitions® / Photochromic Lenses

Transitions® lenses automatically change from clear to tinted when exposed to sunlight. Available in any frame and any prescription type.

Transitions® is a registered trademark of Transitions Optical, Inc. used under license by Transitions Optical Limited.


We have successfully delighted many customers with prism prescriptions and are delighted to welcome many more. Please contact us before ordering so we can discuss your needs.

Computer Filters / Blue Light Blocking

Blue light blocking filters are available on any lens or prescription type for an optional, additional fee. We only use the very best in blue light blocking technology with no visible discoloration of lens.

Better fit means better vision - even from the same prescription

Optical positioning (PD)
The Topology 3D scan captures more than 2,000 measurements, accurate to a fraction of a millimeter. This includes measuring the pupillary distance (PD) measurement, individually for each eye, more accurately than an optometrist and calipers could.
Vertex Distance
The Topology 3D scan and custom-fit process knows the precise position that your frame will hold your lens when worn on your individual face, so we are able to calibrate your prescription lens to focus precisely onto your retina.
Tilt Angle
As we adjust pantoscopic tilt (the angle of the lens in relation to your primary gaze) to suit the contours of your nose, cheeks, and eyelashes, we also recalibrate your lens to focus precisely on the center of your retina.
Secure Fit (with no slipping)
With precisely the right placement for your ears, Topology frames never slide down your nose, ensuring your frames stay put in the perfect optical position all day. By meeting the ear placement exactly, temples are also never too loose.
