Types of Lenses
New ‘hi-index’ materials mean that your lenses can be made thinner, lighter and better looking. This is particularly useful if you have a high power prescription. No longer will you need to wear thick unsightly lenses or have your choice of frames restricted.
If you need both near and distance vision correction, then you are probably presbyopic – a condition which most people experience from their mid-40s onwards. The traditional solution is to use bifocals, but these have a sudden change in focus and a visible line across the lens. Varifocal lenses are an increasingly popular alternative. Because they have a gradual change in their optical power, there is no disconcerting jump between your reading and distance vision. As a result, varifocal lenses give you better middle distance focus. They also look more attractive without the dividing line of bifocals.
Most lenses can now have special coatings applied which enhance your vision and also improve the appearance of your glasses. In particular we recommend that your lenses have scratch-resistant and anti-reflection coatings. A scratch-resistant coating will prolong the life of your lenses because it reduces scratching from general wear and tear. An anti-reflection coating virtually eliminates the light reflected from the surface of your lenses. As there are no reflections to get in the way of normal eye contact – but it will also help when driving at night because it reduces glare from oncoming headlights.
