Making sure the lenses of your eyeglasses are high quality is a concern for many residents of Oakville. Consult the following information on lens quality & cost the next time you buy a new pair of glasses.
Consider getting scratch resistant coating for your high quality eyeglass lenses: Glass material is very difficult to scratch, but it is hardly ever used for glasses since people generally demand lighter and thinner products. Plastic lenses come in different forms and designs. They are a great choice for consumers as they perform very well optically, they are light and thin, however can scratch easier if not protected with scratch resistant coating. Damaged eyeglass lenses means poor vision, so Invision Optical recommends scratch resistant coating is applied to any new pair of high quality eye glasses.
Consider getting Anti-reflective coating for your high quality eyeglass lenses: Reflections off of eye glasses are a cause of discomfort and annoyance to eye glasses-wearers. When your eye glass lenses catch reflections or glare, it can cause distraction, and reduces night vision. The solution to this problem is anti-reflective coatings that will eliminate glare and make eye glass lenses almost entirely invisible to the person wearing them.
Consider getting UV blocking treatment for your high quality eyeglass lenses: It is no secret that ultra violet rays can damage your vision if you spend a lot of time outside. If you are concerned with avoiding cataracts or macular degeneration in old age, make sure that your high quality eyeglass lenses are treated for UV protection. There are materials such as polycarbonate and most high index plastics that are already have UV protection. The cheaper materials like lower quality plastic will need the necessary treatment to properly protect you from UV rays. Research has also shown that most UV damage to the eye can happen up to the age of 18 years.
Consider getting Photochromic treatment for your high quality eyeglass lenses: Photochromic eyeglass lenses will darken in sunny or bright conditions, and then lighten to clear or near transparent when you are inside a building. Photochromic lenses are available in all materials. They are a good option if you are looking to save money on the extra cost of buying prescription sun glasses.
