    Polycarbonate lenses, the strongest lenses for eyeglasses, often applied to sports glasses. They also applied to regular glasses to people who want durable glasses. Compared regular glasses, polycarbonate lenses are 10 times more impact resistant that made the eyeglasses durable and unbreakable. Besides, polycarbonate lenses also lighter than standard plastic lenses that give you comfortable wearing. In addition, polycarbonate lenses can also provide UV protection to shield your eyes in sun that regular eyeglasses lenses can't. So, polycarbonate lenses are good choices for a pair of good eyeglasses.
