Our professionals are trained to help you select ophthalmic lenses that provide crisp, comfortable vision. Our optometrists, opticians, and advisors will show you various options in accordance with your prescription, needs, and lifestyle. They’ll make sure you are fully satisfied with your new pair of glasses.
After your eye exam (which you should undergo once every year or more frequently if recommended by your optometrist), our eyewear experts will show you the different lenses available to ensure you’re able to make an informed decision.
Myopia (nearsightedness, or trouble seeing things far away) and hyperopia (farsightedness, or trouble seeing things close up) are the most common disorders and can be corrected with single vision ophthalmic lenses.
Myopia is an imbalance between the length of the eye and the curvature of the cornea or lens. Because the eye is too long or too curved, the image perceived by a nearsighted person is not focused directly on their retina. When the person looks into the distance, the image therefore appears blurred because it is focused in front of the retina.
Hyperopia, on the other hand, results from the fact that the image is formed behind the retina. It is a refractive disorder that requires the eye to work to focus and avoid blurred vision.
Single vision (or unifocal) lenses
Providing one type of correction over the entire lens to improve near- or far-distance vision.
Single vision lenses customized
Customized to your frames, face, lifestyle, and vision habits. They accommodate the shape, movements, and requirements of your eyes based on how you wear your lenses (frame adjustment).
Specialized single vision lenses
Specialized to reduce eyestrain.
Presbyopia is caused by a loss of flexibility in the lens, which causes the eye to focus less well on nearby objects. It usually occurs to people in their forties, even ones who have never had any vision problems. Like aging and taxes, presbyopia is inevitable!
e.g., for computer work
Bifocal or trifocal lenses
Two or three visual areas
A combination of several pairs of glasses
Progressive lenses give you clear vision at any distance. The upper part of the lens provides distance vision, while the lower part provides near vision. The transition between the two parts is smooth, and the intermediate vision in the centre of the lens is fully functional.
Customized progressive lenses are tailored to your facial shape, your daily activities, and your lifestyle habits. With your customized lenses, you’ll be able to enjoy sharp vision at every distance, superior image stability when you move your head from side to side, and fewer blurry zones. In other words, your progressive lenses will be suited to your lifestyle and habits which means you’ll be more comfortable wearing them.
Specialty lenses offer more comfortable vision in specific situations, whether you wear single vision or progressive lenses. If you have a job or hobbies that require a lot of near vision or if you spend a lot of time behind the wheel or often work in front of a screen, specialty lenses could make everyday life easier while improving your vision and reducing eyestrain.
