First-Rate Prescription Lenses
At Eye Shadez, we have multiple lenses that you may pick from. We understand that this may be slightly overwhelming, but our staff will assist you in picking the perfect frame for you and your lifestyle. We are here to help. Examine the different lens types to get a better understanding before you come to the shop.
Progressive VS Single Vision Lenses
As we get older, and especially after 40 years age, we begin to develop Presbyopia. This is simply known as being unable to quickly focus on objects near our lenses. It is not uncommon that one may move a book further away or move their glasses below the nose to see clearer. Sometimes, individuals may take their glasses off altogether in if they are very irritated.
However, Progressive Lenses are built to solve this problem. These lenses are designed with a smooth transition from near to mid to distance vision. Unlike Bifocal and Trifocal lenses, which have a disturbing cut in the middle, progressive lenses are so much easier to use and appear to be more natural.
Progressive lenses are essentially trifocals, without the disturbing lines. This allows individuals to do multiple tasks with the same single pair of glasses and maintain a crystal clear vision.
If an individual is below 40 years, it is very likely that you may require single view lenses. You are less likely to experience difficulty in focusing on objects that are near your lenses.
If you are using contact lenses, you would be using single-vision lenses. The entire lens will have the same level of vision correction across its surface.
It is also possible that an individual may use contact lenses, which are already single vision. And then couple them with single vision glasses for reading and/or computer work. It depends what you prefer more.
Glass Lens VS Plastic Lens
Glass lenses tend to be more clear, thinner and sharper than plastic lenses. They are naturally used for making progressive lenses, and are more scratch resistant. It is strongly recommended that these are not used for sporting activities or given to children, as they may shatter more easily.
However, at Eye Shadez we use special glass that when shattered, it will automatically crumble to glass spheres. This will protect the eyes from harm and prevent anyone who may step on its shards from being hurt.
Plastic lenses are much lighter, and being more impact resistant, they can safely be given to children and used for sporting activities. These benefits come with the fact that they cannot be used for progressive lenses, are thicker, and are less scratch resistant than glass.
