Some examples of the latest lens technologies that we have to offer:
- Progressives: If you need glasses for reading and/or computer use, progressive lenses are the latest development for smooth, comfortable vision correction. These new lenses are the best alternative to bifocals, which have distracting, unattractive lines that give away your age. Progressive lenses give you clear, smooth, uninterrupted vision near, far, and at mid-range distances.
- Free Form Progressive Lenses:The Optical Industry is poised for significant change thanks to the introduction of Free Form surfacing to the lens manufacturing process. The transition to Free Form Technology will be a watershed in the history of eyewear, much like the transition from Bifocals to the original progressive lenses. Free Form is a computer-aided design and manufacturing process, not a lens type.
The Advantages Of Free Form Progressive Lenses
- The lenses are easier to adapt to given their extremely low aberration level and smooth transition.
- Wider field of vision at all distances because the progressive surface is closer to the eye. The intermediate and near visual fields are up to 35% larger than conventional Progressive lenses.
- Immediate adaptation due to reduced dizziness and balance problems. Great for wearers changing from Bifocals to Progressives.
- Quicker adaptation thanks to optimal design ergonomics that fully respect the routine movements of new progressive wearers and wearers of progressive lenses with a different design.
- FREE FORM LENSES have amazing clarity and reduced distortion.
- Transitions: These lenses are clear indoors and darken as you go into the sun. Transitions adjust quickly from light to dark, and back again, and have 100% UV and scratch protection.
- Anti-reflective: Special coatings are now available for spectacle lenses, much like those used for fine camera lenses. These coatings are particularly effective for reducing eye fatigue, and for anyone driving at night. Anti-reflective lenses also enhance appearance by removing all distracting reflections.
- Polycarbonate: Impact resistant lenses are always the lens of choice for young people and active patients. Polycarbonate lenses are lightweight and ultra-thin because of their unique strength, and more comfortable than standard plastic lenses.
- Polarized: These lenses eliminate reflected glare from your sunglasses. They are the perfect sun wear choice for outdoor sports and activities.
- Hi-Index: High-index lenses are the right choice if you want thinner, lighter lenses and eyeglasses that are as attractive and comfortable as possible. Thinner, lighter high-index lenses are especially recommended if you have a strong eyeglass prescription for nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism.
