Choose Your Lenses Wisely
There are so many different lifestyles in our busy community, which is why we offer lenses that will aid you in all of your different activities. Each different type of lenses offers benefits for various eye conditions and lifestyles, so we’ve outlined some key points about our lenses below.
Presbyopia is a condition where your near vision decreases. Progressive lenses in Calgary are perfect if you have presbyopia, as they allow you to see both near and far with ease. Progressive lenses are multifocal, which means they have added magnifying power for far, intermediate and near vision. These lenses add to your visual comfort because of their gentle transition between magnifications. Progressive lenses are perfect for distance, computer and reading vision, which means they will help you see better if you drive, read or use the computer a lot in your daily life. They are also good for outdoor activities like racquet sports and sports shooting.
Transition or photochromic lenses:
Uniquely designed to protect your eyes from the sun and harsh artificial light, photochromic lenses contain special dyes that cause them to darken on exposure to specific types of light. This allows them to protect your eyes from the sun and improve your vision in all light conditions, making them perfect for your outdoor activities such alpine hiking, climbing and mountaineering.
Polarized sunglass lenses:
Long term exposure to glare can cause problems with your eyes, such as cataracts. One way to reduce your chances of developing such problems is with polarized sunglass lenses. Using a chemical filter, polarized lenses shield your eyes against the dangers of intense glare by absorbing horizontal light waves. This greatly reduces the glare you encounter on the road, snow or water, making them perfect for activities such as skiing, snowboarding and water sports.
We also have lenses that promote work safety and can help with different eye conditions. If you’re interested in learning more about photochromic or progressive lenses in Calgary, be sure to contact us.
