Varilux invented the very first progressive lenses in 1959. Since then, they have been constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation to bring you sharp, more natural vision with smooth transitions from near to far. Varilux progressive lenses provide sharp vision at every distance—even in dimly lit conditions—eliminating the blurriness and low-light issues of ordinary progressive lenses.
Eyezen lenses are enhanced single vision lenses that provide sharper vision than ordinary single vision lenses and are available to everyone—prescription or not. The lenses are designed to protect your eyes and reduce strain from viewing digital devices. Eyezen lenses utilize Essilor’s Smart Blue Filter feature, which blocks at least 20% of Harmful Blue Light coming from devices, indoor lighting, and even the sun.
With Transitions Adaptive Lenses, you see the best of both worlds. The lenses adapt to changing light, from clear indoors to dark outdoors, and every shade in between. Transitions Adaptive Lenses fit every lifestyle and every age. Not only do they adjust from fully clear indoors to the perfect tint outdoors, they also block dangerous UV rays and filter Harmful Blue Light, which can be found both outdoors and from digital devices.

Homer Optical is an industry-leading provider of safety eyewear and is dedicated to manufacturing the highest-quality lenses combined with the fashion trends of safety frames. Prescription safety glasses are a must for those who require prescription glasses, for work or play, in environments that may be hazardous to their eyes.
Polycarbonate lenses provide significantly more protection than any other lens material. We highly recommend the use of polycarbonate wherever possible as the safest eye protection available. Homer Optical safety lenses are in compliance with ANSI standard 280.1-2015 – detailed standards and product requirements are available upon request.
Frames for safety glasses are tested using the same criteria whether they will be used in basic impact or high impact applications. Frame tests include:
- High Mass Impact: In this test, a one-inch diameter steel projectile weighing 17.6 ounces is dropped through a tube from a height of 50 inches onto a safety lens mounted in a frame. The frame is “worn” by an artificial head form. To pass, the frame must fully retain the lens, and no piece can become detached from the inner surface of the frame component that holds the lenses.
- Durability: Safety frames must also pass a flammability-resistance test, a corrosion-resistance test and other durability tests.
- High Velocity Impact: This test involves shooting a quarter-inch steel ball at the lens and frame at a velocity of 150 feet per second from a distance of just under 10 inches. The test is repeated multiple times (each time with a new frame and lens) at different angles and positions of impact. The pass criteria are the same as for the high mass impact test.
Far from “Child’s Play”, Homer’s Kids is Safety First. Our comprehensive frame and lens package includes great optics, polycarbonate lenses and No Glare treatment in fun, high quality frames. Polycarbonate is the safest lens and critical for impact-resistance, durability and eye safety. The No Glare feature not only blocks glare from the white-boards, computer screens and fluorescent lights – it also keeps those lenses easy to clean!
Homer’s Kids offers Homer’s exclusive Protection Against Loss Replacement Warranty. This warranty provides a one time replacement of frame and/or lenses for one full year from date of purchase. Frame, lens and prescription must be the same as originally ordered.
