Do you get glare when driving at night or in rainy weather? Do your eyes feel strained and tired at the computer? Does it bother you when photographs show white glare off your sunglasses? Then anti-glare lenses by Crizal or HOYA might be right for you. These extremely popular lenses are designed to reduce the “halo” effect from oncoming headlights. They also help to reduce eye fatigue that is often felt during computer use, especially under fluorescent lighting.
Transition lenses – lenses that are clear indoors and darken when exposed to UV light – are available in almost every prescription. Please note that most car windshields have a UV filter, which prevent these lenses from darkening while driving, even on the sunniest days. For this reason, patients often get separate sunglasses or clip-ons for driving.
Progressive lenses, also known as “no-line bifocals,” are the most commonly preferred multifocal lenses because they provide clear vision for nearly any distance, including distance, computer and reading. Progressive lens technology has improved dramatically over the past few years. The optical shop is proud to offer the most state-of-the-art progressive brands including Varilux, Zeiss and HOYA, which are digitally manufactured to decrease distortion and provide the widest field of vision.
With more and more people relying on computers, tablets and smartphones, intermediate distance glasses have become very popular. Depending on the prescription and lifestyle requirements, patients can wear either single vision or bifocal computer glasses for optimal intermediate vision. We suggest always using anti-glare coating for computers and tablets to help reduce eye fatigue.
The optical shop at Stamford Ophthalmology is pleased to offer a one-time, one-year, no charge warranty on our glasses in the event of accidental damage, as long as you bring in all of the broken pieces. The frame warranty covers manufacturers defect, including instances such as a temple that breaks off, or chipping paint. Please note that depending on your individual vision plan, this warranty may not apply. The warranty does not apply to lost, stolen or clearance glasses.
Our optical shop also offers a variety of discounts. We provide 10% off a complete set of glasses with either AAA or AARP. We also offer a multiple pair discount, which can be especially helpful if you are updating both your regular glasses and your sunglasses. The optical shop has a variety of clearance frames, with savings up to 50% off select designer frames. Please note that discounts or clearance items cannot be combined with vision plans, insurances, or other discounts and coupons. Please see a shop optician for details.
