Lately, many patients of Vision World of Parkchester have found Transitions lenses to be extremely convenient as these lenses have a self-adjusting tint that darkens outside and lightens inside, offering UV protection. Many people think of Transitions lenses as a combination of sunglasses and regular glasses, but these lenses also help decrease eyestrain and increase comfort in many different lighting situations.
Progressive lenses, or “no-line bifocals” provide its wearers with clear vision at all distances, not simply near and far. Unlike bifocals and trifocals which are easily distinguished by the line through the lens, there is no image jump in progressive lenses. Instead, progressive lenses have a gradual change in optical power so that there is no drastic change between distance and near vision. Progressive lenses take some getting used to, but they have become extremely popular!
If you have a strong nearsighted or farsighted prescription, you may want to consider high-index lenses. Made of a special material that produces lighter and thinner lenses than basic plastic, these lenses are often more comfortable to wear because they don’t lay heavily on the nose or ears. Another added benefit of high-index lenses is that they offer a more aesthetic appearance because they do not cause the same “coke-bottle” effect on its wearers.
Whichever lenses you choose, they will certainly help you improve your vision on a daily basis. Learn more about the types of lenses offered at our Van Nest optical store by visiting us today!
