Upgrade Your Vision
Our glasses are an extension of us and personalizing the frames is a very unique experience. We take a lot of thought and care in choosing the right frame for us. But do you take as much time to personalize the lens that that you view the world with? We understand that lens options can be overwhelming so our opticians are available to help design a lens made just for you based on your lifestyle needs.
Here are some options we may discuss with you:
Transitions lenses: This family of photochromic lenses have come a long way since they were first introduced and now come in a variety of new colors, such as sapphire, amethyst, emerald green, and amber. The latest Transitions™ lenses, Signature Generation 8, tint darker and up to 30% faster. They even fade back up to 3 minutes faster than previous generations. Besides protecting your eyes from glare outdoors, transitions lenses also help protect your eyes from harmful blue light!
Anti-fatigue lenses: Screens are a big part of our every day so you may be wondering what options are available for your eye health and lifestyle. Anti-fatigue lenses are digital lenses that are specifically made to allow your eyes to relax while looking at a screen. Looking at your computer or phone will be more comfortable and your eyes will feel less tired.
Progressive lenses: A progressive lens is an amazing piece of engineering, allowing the power in the lenses to “progressively” change from far to intermediate to your full reading power without an image jump or visible line on the lens, like the old-fashioned bifocals. This enhances your comfort with your lenses and is a safer option when doing things such as driving. Because there are varying differences in lens designs and technology, people often have vastly different experiences with progressive lenses. Our trained opticians take much care to ensure measurements are as accurate as possible for the best experience.
Computer lenses: Computer lenses are a specially designed type of progressive lens that widen the computer viewing area. This can help relieve neck strain and provide better ergonomics as well as relieve digital eye strain. If you work at a computer all day, you may greatly benefit from having a second pair of glasses dedicated to your work environment.
No-glare (anti-reflective) treatments: Anti-reflective coatings virtually eliminate reflection and glare from your lenses, thus allowing more light to pass through. This can improve vision, reduce eye strain, and make your eyeglasses look more attractive. Plus, some anti-reflective treatments add scratch and smudge resistance, or even blue-light protection!
Sunglasses: Sunglasses are the perfect accessory for me during these summer months. I’ve rocked the red tinted lens sunglasses and I even had the small 90’s inspired sunglasses at one point. While these are stylish and trendy, many store bought sunglasses tend to only have tinted lenses and although they can help with how bright the sun is, they don’t actually have the protection we need for our eyes. Make sure the sunglasses you purchase are labeled as “100% protection against both UVA and UVB” or “100% protection against UV 400.” Another great feature to consider are polarized lenses which provide an extra layer of protection built right into the lens by filtering out reflective light, giving you a clearer view. Polarized lenses are the best option to cut glare off the dashboard while driving and the water when you’re chilling at the beach or pool.
There’s a lot to look at when it comes to new glasses and we are here to help walk you through the options available to you. Your eyes and vision are important to every aspect of your waking hours so treat yourself to a lens designed just for your needs, so you can have the comfort you deserve!
