Eyeglasses

The Basics

We do most of our glasses in our ON-SITE lab. (Some vision plans require that they be sent to an outside lab). This allows us to insure the quality of the product, as well as customization for each client. Most importantly it provides a much shorter turn around time on your new eyewear!

Advances In Eyeglass Lenses

You also have many options when choosing the lenses for your eyeglasses. Among the most popular types of lenses and lens options prescribed today are:

Aspheric lenses

  • Have a slimmer, more attractive profile than other lenses. They also eliminate that magnified, “bug-eye” look caused by some prescriptions.

High Index Lenses

  • Made of new materials that enable the lenses to be noticeably thinner and lighter than regular plastic lenses.

Polycarbonate Lenses

  • They are thinner, lighter and up to 10 times more impact-resistant than regular plastic lenses. These lenses are great for safety glasses, children’s eyewear, and for anyone who wants lightweight, durable lenses.

 

Photochromic Lenses

  • Sun-sensitive lenses that quickly darken in bright conditions, and quickly return to a clear state in ordinary indoor lighting.

Polarized Lenses

  • Diminish glare from flat, reflective surfaces (like water) and also reduce eye fatigue.

Anti-Reflective Coatings

  • They can dramatically improve the look and comfort of your glasses by minimizing the amount of light that reflects off the surface of your lenses, which also has the added benefit of reducing glare and thus easing eye fatigue.

UV Protection

  • The UV rays in sunlight can be harmful to the eyes. Lenses that block 100% UV help to ward off various eye conditions and damage.

Scratch Resistant

  • Scratches on lenses are distracting, plain and simple. And they can interfere with lens performance. Scratch-resistant treatments imbued into the lens surface toughen up the lenses making them more durable.

Anti-Reflective

  • For fashion, comfort and clarity anti-reflective treatments are the way to go. They make the lens nearly invisible, and cut glare from headlights, computer screens and harsh lighting.

Lenses For Presbyopia

Presbyopia is the normal, age-related loss of near focusing ability that makes reading and other close-up tasks more difficult after age 40.

This means that the usual type of eyeglass lenses you've likely been accustomed to wearing, known as single vision lenses, no longer will work well for you.

Multifocal eyeglass lenses available for presbyopia correction include:

  • Bifocals: Lenses with two powers – one for distance and one for near – separated by a visible line.

  • Trifocals: Lenses with three powers for seeing at varying distances – near, intermediate and far – separated by two visible lines.

  • Progressive lenses: These lenses have many advantages over bifocals and trifocals because they allow the wearer to focus at many different distances, not just two or three. Because they have no lines, progressive lenses allow a smooth, comfortable transition from one distance to another.

If you see well in the distance without the need for eyeglasses, simple reading glasses with single vision lenses may be all you need to deal with near vision problems caused by presbyopia.
