Customized High Definition lenses

Progressive lenses or “no-line bifocals” are an alternative to traditional lined bifocal or trifocal lenses.  The advantages of progressives are they provide variable vision allowing wearer see far away, at intermediate distances and up close seamlessly.  There are many styles and types of progressives.  Progressive lenses were first patented in 1907 and be commercially available in 1922.  Design breakthroughs in early 1970’s caused a large increase in popularity.  All progressive lenses have unique designs and characteristics.

 

While we can furnish nearly any style of progressive lenses, the Zeiss portfolio of progressive lenses remains our preferred series of lenses.  Zeiss progressive lenses incorporate design features that tailor the lens design to the wearer allowing true high definition vision.  Position of wear, frame shape and frame size are taken into account along with patient’s vision profile and specific needs.  We then have the ability through Zeiss custom optics to bias the patient’s daily wear progressives for optimized reading or computer use.  In addition, the Zeiss Office series has lens designs specifically laid out for the grueling demands of the workplace and meeting room.

Many people feel insecure, uncomfortable and stressed when driving, especially in difficult light and weather conditions such as rain and mist, or at dusk or night. Driving can be a real challenge for everybody – no matter how long the distance, and good vision is vital for safety.  The DriveSafe lens is an everyday lens specifically designed to meet the vision needs of people who want to feel safer and more comfortable when driving.  

 

The pupil reacts to light intensity from its surroundings.  In low light; twilight, rainfall, dark days or night driving, the pupil diameter is larger causing space perception and distance assessment much more difficult for the driver. LED and Xenon headlights can also cause considerable glare.  Intense glare can be a risk, as it reduces the visibility of objects and contrast sensitivity. Glare also can cause discomfort and irritation.  The DriveSafe lens has optimized optics for these conditions allowing for more accurate viewing while driving under low light conditions. It also incorporates an anti-reflective coating that specifically blocks the high intensity glare caused by wavelengths of light emitted by modern headlights.  DriveSafe lenses are available in both single vision and progressive lens types.

  • CR39, commonly referred to as plastic is a basic lens material.  It is adequate for most lighter prescriptions.  It has mild scratch resistant properties and will accommodate most frames.

  •  

  • Polycarbonate is another lens material.  Poly has shatter resistant properties that make it ideal for safety frames, active adults and children.  It is roughly 30% thinner lighter than CR39 making it an ideal for moderate strength prescriptions.

  •  

  • Hi-Index materials are the thinnest materials available.  Hi index lenses are ideal for stronger prescriptions as they are lighter and cosmetically the most attractive lenses for otherwise thick lenses.

  • Anti Reflective coatings are applied to lenses to reduce glare.  They improve the overall appearance of the glasses and improve optical performance for the wearer.  Newer more premium antireflective coatings are more scratch resistant and repel water, oil, and dust making them easier to clean and keep clean.  While not totally scratch proof, our antireflective coatings are warranted so that should you scratch them we will replace the lenses for free for the year after your purchase.
