Eyeglass Lens Options

Eyeglass lenses can do more than simply "help you see better". They can also protect your vision and your eyes. Knowing your specific needs is very important to selecting the proper lens options which will help you see better and protect your eyes. There are many variables and options to eyeglass lenses that must be considered depending on your requirements. You may need to not only see close, far and intermediate but also want to eliminate reflections. How you use your eyes is paramount to knowing what lens options will help you see better. A relaxed eye that is not straining to see, will give you the best vision! We will discus your lifestyle and together we will find the perfect lens options for you.

Eyeglass Lens Options

A few of the lens options that are available for you, are:
  • Single Vision Lenses
  • Progressive Lenses
  • Anti-Reflective Coatings
  • Computer Eyeglasses Lenses
  • Polarized Lenses
Single Vision Lenses

Single vision lenses, as the name implies, do one singular function. They whole field of vision in your lens to set to target the object(s) of what you are looking at, at certain, or all distances. Single vision lenses can be for close, intermediate, far vision or all inclusive distances. Single vision lenses can assist your vision with eye conditions such as Myopia (nearsightedness), Hyperopia (farsightedness), and Astigmatism.

Progressive Lenses

Progressive lenses are multi-focal lenses. Even though you cannot see any line on the lens, progressive lenses are design to help you see as clear as you can at multiple distances. They are designed to help you see clearer wearing eyeglasses without having to change eyeglasses. The lower part of the lens is for near vision, the middle part of the lens is for intermediate vision, (such as a computer screen) and the higher part of the lens is to help you see distance.

Anti-Reflective Coatings

The true measure of AR clarity is luminous reflectance: the lower the reflectance, the greater the clarity. An anti-reflective coating will ease the strain of your vision by lowering and in some cases eliminating reflective light. An ant-reflective coating improves night vision and reduces glare and halos of light which results in improved visual clarity. They also are resistant to dirt and fingerprints. This is also extremely beneficial when using technological devices such as televisions, computers, laptops, tablets, cellphones and artificial light. Also cosmetically, your appearance improves. When people look at you, they do not see reflections of light in your lenses and they have a clearer view, of you.

Computer Eyeglasses

Have you ever added up the time you spend in front of your computer, tablet, smart phone, or other electronic device? Looking at screens is a normal part of our lives in the 21st century. Even if you never had any eye problems before, you may have computer vision syndrome symptoms after a brief amount of screen time and can worsen and cause other vision problems. If you already suffer from astigmatism, myopia, presbyopia, aging eyes, and/or diabetic eye problems, your computer vision symptoms may worsen. This can even be the case if you already wear prescription eyeglasses or contacts. Many regular contact lenses, eyeglasses and sunglasses are not designed to deflect the problems caused by computer screens. More computer friendly lenses are available. For people with otherwise normal eyes and vision, a set of specially-designed glasses used during the time you spend on a computer or screen can be very helpful.

Polarized Lenses

Polarized lenses are the ONLY sun lenses that reduce glare, improve vision and maintain healthy eyes Once considered a specialty lens that was geared for activities such as fishing, boating, and other water and snow sports, polarized lenses are now the preferred choice by patients as well as by the ophthalmic professional as the leading lens for sunglasses. Polarized lenses are made from a special polarizing film that is applied in the factory on the front surface of the lens. This film allows light rays to be filtered, consequently improving the vision in strong light conditions. Polarized lenses will protect you from UV rays, glare and intense light. In combination with an anti-reflective coating, polarized lenses are ideal for fishing and driving, but there are occupations that a polarized lens would not be feasible, like an airplane pilot because polarization can greatly reduce or even eliminate the visibility of aviation instruments that incorporate anti-glare filters.
