Q&A - Our Eyeglasses

What are Bifocals?

Sometimes our vision fails us at two or even three distinct distances, especially as we age. Bifocal lenses—lenses with two distinct viewing areas—have traditionally been a reliable solution to such a dilemma. (A lens with three distinct viewing areas is called a trifocal.)By distinct, we mean there are noticeable lines separating the two different fields of vision within a bifocal lens surface. A slight adjustment to the angle of the head allows wearers to choose which lens area to look through based on the distance of the object they’re trying to see.

What are Some of your Specialty Lenses?
  • Driving eyeglasses – this category of eyeglasses may have 2 subcategories: Polarized sunglasses with anti-glare coating, specially designed for driving and prescription eyeglasses that offer clear vision.
  • Safety eyewear – these glasses are made of ultra-durable materials and come in wraparound design or side shields, to offer more protection for your eyes.
  • Swim goggles – swimmers and scuba divers who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses could benefit from prescription swim goggles.
What is Anti-Reflective Treatment?

An anti-reflective treatment applied on the front and the back of prescription lenses greatly reduces the light reflected by the lens surfaces. As a result, your eyes appear clearer behind the lenses, vision is more defined, and glare from reflected objects—especially headlights at night—is virtually eliminated. Plus, if you have a high-powered “strong” prescription, anti-reflective coating makes your eyes appear more natural.

Can Lasik Correct Astigmatism?

The “perfect” eyeball would be a smooth sphere with optical lenses that function at their best. But in the real world, this rarely happens. Usually, eyes are not shaped perfectly and visual acuity is therefore compromised. When you have astigmatism, the eye is elliptical – similar to a football shape....
