Wearing prescription lenses, prescribed by an optometrist in Vaughan, help correct eyesight problems related to enjoying clear vision, up close or at a distance. For most eyeglass wearers, this leads to a higher quality day-to-day life.

The optometrist will assess the physical nature of your eye which is related to the type of vision problems you'll face and helps identify the proper type of glasses to improve your vision. Nearsightedness and farsightedness are the most common vision impairment issues people face.

When buying eyeglasses, the frame you choose is important to both your appearance and your comfort when wearing glasses. However the eyeglass lenses you choose influence four factors: appearance, comfort, vision and safety.



Prescription Lenses Types in Vaughan

Single Vision Lenses

The meaning of “single vision” applies to lenses. In short, single vision lenses are glasses lenses that only offer ONE type of vision correction. This means that they are crafted to help people see better at farther or shorter distances (nearsighted or farsightedness), but never both.

Bifocal Lenses

Bifocal eyeglass lenses contain two lens powers to help you see objects at all distances after you lose the ability to naturally change the focus of your eyes due to age (presbyopia). small portion in the lower part of the lens contains the power required to correct your near vision. The rest of the lens usually is for your distance vision. Generally, you look up and through the distance portion of the lens when focusing on points farther away, and you look down and through the bifocal segment of the lens when focusing on reading material or objects within 18 inches of your eyes.

Progressive Lenses

Progressive lenses — sometimes called "no-line bifocals" — give you a more youthful appearance by eliminating the visible lines found in bifocal (and trifocal) lenses. Progressive lenses more closely mimic the natural vision that you enjoyed before the onset of presbyopia. Instead of providing just two lens powers like bifocals (or three, like trifocals), progressive lenses are true "multifocal" lenses that provide a smooth, seamless progression of many lens powers for clear vision across the room, up close and at all distances in between. With progressive lenses, there's no need to bob your head up and down or adopt uncomfortable postures to see your computer screen or other objects at arm's length.

Lens fogging can be especially dangerous for police officers and other first responders to emergency situations.

Shaw Lens

Designing lenses that take into account how both eyes work together is not an easy task. The math is complex in a purely theoretically environment but when you factor in other variables like frame dimensions, the position of the glasses on an individual patient’s face and the limits that lens manufacturing and optics place, it’s no wonder why no one has done this before.
That’s what makes the SHAW lens unique. The SHAW lens process uses a patent-pending method to accurately model eye rotation in order to predict distortions caused by eye glasses. We then use that information to design a lens that reduces or eliminates the distortion other lenses can cause.
