Learn more about the importance of choosing the right eyeglass lenses and the options available to you.
High-index lenses are the perfect choice if you're looking for thinner, lighter lenses and eyeglasses. These lenses are particularly great if you have a strong eyeglass prescription.
Most people who need eyeglasses require lenses that are thin in the center but thicker at the edge of the lens. The stronger the prescription, the thicker the edges.
High-index lenses, however, are thinner and lighter than traditional lenses, using materials that allow them to bend light more efficiently and allowing you to see clearly without having to deal with a thick and unattractive eyeglass design.
Most high-index lenses also have what's known as an "aspheric design", which means they appear slimmer, creating a more attractive profile and reducing the magnified "bug-eye" look that sometimes comes with wearing conventional lenses.
We have a range of high-index lenses available that will have you looking and seeing great.
Current technologies now allow optometrists to create thinner and more lightweight lenses than ever before. The drawback, however, is that there may be more glare and reflection on your lenses.
We offer lenses with an anti-reflective coating that can eliminate reflections on the front and back surface of your glasses. You'll be able to see more clearly without being distracted by reflected light bouncing off nearby surfaces.
People you're speaking with will be able to focus on your eyes rather than reflections.
An anti-reflective coating is also great for night driving. They prevent oncoming car headlights from being reflected through your lenses that—blinding you and leading to accidents.
An anti-reflective coating on your lenses also means you'll be able to work more effectively in front of computers where glare and reflection are common.
We exclusively offer Internal Freeform Lenses. Created using 3D digital imaging software, we scan your eyes and then fuse the unique focal points of your vision onto the back of each Internal Freeform lens. The result is a truly customized eyewear experience offering a wider field of view, less distortion and overall clearer vision. Our patients who have made the switch from traditional lenses to Internal Freeform lenses say it's like switching from regular TV to HDTV.
Our Internal Freeform Lenses can be used for single vision and progressive lens types.
Many of us spend a significant amount of time each day staring at a computer or digital device screen. Glare and pixilation from your screen can result in eyestrain, headaches and even more serious vision problems.
Most progressives and bifocals aren't designed for use in front of a computer or digital device. You’re forced to tilt your head lower to be able to see the screen effectively resulting in neck, shoulder and back pain.
We offer computer and digital device lenses uniquely designed for working in front of a screen for prolonged periods. These lenses reduce glare and allow you to focus and work more comfortably.
People are spending increasing amounts of time in front of screens or staring at digital devices. This prolonged and repeated exposure to damaging blue-violet rays is causing people of all ages to experience eye strain and fatigue that can lead to headaches, trouble sleeping, dry eyes, and other symptoms.
Our blue light lens solution filters potentially harmful ultraviolet (UV) light being emitted by digital sources like tablets, phones, televisions, and more. While blue light glasses have become readily available, our High Def Blue Anti-reflective coating includes all the additional benefits of our High Def Plus coating and can be applied to lenses customized for you. Enjoy a coating that’s anti-fog, anti-reflective and anti-static while also being highly scratch resistant and easy to clean.
Try a pair of blue light filtering lenses for healthier, more enjoyable and relaxing screen time.
