Advanced Prescriptive Lenses


Digital Lenses

The use of digital lenses in ophthalmic eyeglasses is increasing in eye care practices all over the world. Although this technology has been around for quite some time, it is becoming more common and preferred among lens laboratories. 

Digital lens processing offers a higher level of precision when creating the lens and also opens up the possibility to create extremely unique and versatile lenses in terms of shape and prescription. This is thanks to the equipment used to create the lens. By using processing equipment that requires the measure, analysis and computation of lens data in the form of numerical digits, both surfaces of a lens can be directly surfaced with a high level of accuracy. With this improved level of precision a patient will experience more comfort in their prescription and a greater level of satisfaction. Due to the manufacturing process, a digital lens allows for more peripheral vision and a sharper picture. 

Digital lenses allows for the customization of progressive lens designs that traditional processing cannot produce. 

In addition to digital lens technology, we offer the following:

  • Premium Anti-Reflective Coatings
  • Polycarbonate Lenses
  • Transition® Lenses
  • Advanced Progressive Lenses
  • Sunglass and Polarized Lenses
