High Index and Aspheric lenses
Depending on your prescription, the choice in lens material you choose can really make a difference in how well you see and the appearance of your glasses. If you have a high prescription, it will be worth every penny to invest in a quality premium material that will not only allow you to see sharper, but your glasses will be lighter and thinner and more attractive looking. This helps to minimize the “bug eye look”, especially for higher farsighted prescriptions. You’ll experience better vision in a lighter, thinner, more comfortable lens.
Choosing to have an Anti-glare coating added to your lenses will help reduces reflections from all directions for less distracting glare and safer night-time driving. It also helps with eye fatigue when working under flourescent lighting, especially when on a computer. Crizal ® Non-glare lenses is the best-in-class transparency as it resist smudges, are easy to clean, as well improve the appearance of your glasses.
Transitions ® Photochromic lenses
This option allows the eyeglass lenses to darken when you step outside during the day and lighten when you step indoors. The darkening of the lenses is activated by UV light exposure, so the greater the sun-light (UV light) exposure, the darker the lenses. This is helpful during an overcast day because it will still darken slightly to give you the correct amount of shade and protect your eyes. There is still UV light exposure on cloudy days.
Reduce your visual fatigue from electronic screens you view every day. These lenses are specifically designed for the visual needs of computer users. With larger intermediate viewing areas this lens is ideal for those hours you spend at your monitor. Dr. Truong and Dr. Ta will work with you to prescribe the ideal lens for your working conditions.
Polarized Sunglass lenses
The most effective way to eliminate glare for outdoor wear. Less glare from the road or the water, less squinting, less fatigue!
Progressive Lens Eyeglasses
Progressive Addition Lenses are glasses that allow you to see both distance and near vision within one pair of glasses. Progressive lenses allow for a gradual and seamless change in power from distant to near without the line or “jump” of traditional bifocals or trifocals. Progressive lenses are also more cosmetically attractive because they don’t look like bifocals. Bifocal with the lines can be associated with ‘old age’; the new single vision lenses are free of lines on the surface and thought to appear more ‘youthful’ and associated with younger eyeglass wearers.
Varilux Progressive Lenses
Utilizing these latest technologies, Essilor has developed the revolutionary Varilux Lenses. Varilux Progressive lenses are not only well known for their comfort and precision, but also for their personalization. Each pair of Varilux Physio lenses is custom made on an individual basis and resilient to scratches, glaring, and smudging. Thanks to these qualities, Varilux eyeglasses don’t need to be replaced or repaired as often as other types of glasses.
