We are all aware that a good pair of glasses is determined by your choice of the frame and the lenses. Frame choice is a mix of style, functional design, comfort and cost, while lens choice remains to many a mystery. Yet, lens choice will ultimately determine what you see and how happy you are with your sight. When we reach the age when correction is necessary for both far and near we have the traditional choice of bifocals or progressive lenses. While progressive lenses have been around for over 30 years, the recent advent of digital designed lenses, the modern progressive lenses are far better than the older designs. Sadly, these older designs can find their way into your frames when glasses are purchased online or at discount stores or at big box stores. The modern digital progressive give a host of advantages and are well worth investigating for your next pair of glasses.
One of the most highly praised lens designs among opticians, winning the best progressive lens for 2016, is the Shamir Autograph III. We are pleased to offer this lens at all our optical shops. The lens has four unique features that really enhance your perception of the world around you.
Firstly, it has a back design that causes little a real world view and limits the magnification or minification that lenses can cause you to see. Secondly, and probably most helpful to all in our modern device-filled world, is these lenses are ergonomically designed so that it is easier to see the dashboard, computer and your smartphones with little, if any, movement of the neck. Thirdly, these lenses can be personalized to your specific needs by increasing or decreasing the parts of the lenses that you need. Lastly, the lenses uses a proprietary algorithm that allows for easy switching between radically different frame designs. All in all, even our doctors are wearing Shamir lenses with smiles on their faces.
The beauty of having our own optical shops at Danbury Eye is that we can easily stand behind our services. And that is what we are here to do. We want you to see your very best. And lens choice is an important part of you seeing at your very best.
