– Prescription Lenses –
Communication is key when it comes to selecting a lens design for your spectacles. The more information that we have about your lifestyle and the things that you need or love to see, the more that we can create individualised options for your vision correction.
When you arrive for your eye examination, as well as determining what issues you are having with your vision, we ask a few simple questions to determine what it is you love to see:
- • How many hours per day do you use a computer?
- • How many hours per day do you read?
- • How many hours per day do you drive?
- • What do you typically wear your glasses for?
- • What do you do for leisure?
- • Do you regularly use sunglasses and what do you use them for?
- • Are your sunglasses prescription?
The more that we can learn from you about your lifestyle, the better recommendations we can make about lenses that will provide you the best vision. We offer all lens options, including single vision, bifocals, trifocals, multifocal and vocational lenses. We pride ourselves on only supplying the most advanced multifocal designs available from the world’s leaders in lens manufacturing and this includes lenses from Carl Zeiss, Hoya, and Rodenstock. These new designs provide the wearer more natural vision, with better visual quality and less head movements.
Once a lens design is selected, choices are also required for lens materials and lens coatings. Higher and more complicated prescriptions require lenses to be made from lighter and thinner materials, to increase comfort during wear and increase visual quality, all of which are explained with the aid of demonstration lenses during the lens selection process. Lens coatings are also an important decision to make and again depend on your lifestyle. Anti-reflection coatings are ideal to eliminate lens reflections situations like night driving or computer use. However, with the introduction of specialised coatings to prevent blue light emissions from computer screens, we can even better protect your long term ocular health with these specialised coatings.
