Try Progressive Lenses Today!

Few of us like to advertise our age, especially once we reach 40 and have trouble reading fine print. Lucky for us, today’s progressive lenses make it impossible for others to tell when we’ve reached the “bifocal age.”

Bifocal lenses have only two powers – one for seeing across the room and the other for seeing up close. But what about those objects in between, like your computer screen or groceries on a store shelf?

Progressive lenses will help you see at all distances, including close-up for reading and computer use.  Today’s advanced technologies deliver a smooth, seamless progression of lens powers for clear vision – at every distance. Progressive lenses provide a more natural depth of focus, offering enhanced comfort and no “image jump.”

Progressives are available in the latest lens materials, making them thinner, lighter and more comfortable than ever. High-index plastic lenses can be up to 50% thinner than standard plastic bifocals.

For safety eyewear, many brands of progressives are available in lightweight and impact-resistant polycarbonate.

Crystal-clear performance

Many progressives have compact designs specially made for smaller frames. With these new designs, wearers with small faces or anyone who wants a trim, fashion-forward frame can enjoy all the benefits of progressive lenses.

More options: for the ultimate in vision, comfort and appearance, request an anti-reflective (AR) coating to eliminate distracting reflections that cause glare when driving. For outdoor wear, progressives are available in photochromic tints for greater comfort when going inside and out. Lenses are also available as polarized sunwear, giving you deeper colours, better contrast and protection from UV rays, glare and intense light.

Let your eyecare professionals recommend a truly customized progressive lens solution – for your unique lifestyle and visual needs.

Back To School Time!

New adventures of a new school year bring excitement to many children. A new school year can also bring challenges.
“Roughly one in four children has a visually related learning difficulty,” says Dr. Brent Neufeld of Calgary Vision Therapy, who specializes in finding solutions for visual processing problems. “When working efficiently, vision helps a child to process and understand information. When not working properly, that visual system can contribute to learning problems.”
Vision is often missed as a roadblock to a child’s ability to learn, since sight is different than vision. Sight (20/20) is what the eyes see whereas vision relates to how we draw meaning from what we see.
How can you tell if your child needs help in building this visual ability? There are many signs: reversing words when writing or copying, confusing the same word in the same sentence and failing to visualize what is read, to name a few.
Fortunately, vision is developed in a sequence of stages, which means that vision can be trained and improved. Talk to your optometrist to find out how visual training can turn your child’s challenges into successes this school year.

Why caking on the eyeliner might not be such a good idea…

Eyeliner is a huge source of eye problems, especially if you are caking it on all over the lid margins, covering up the oil glands. The clear spots in the black field of eyeliner are oil glands that were uncovered by pressing on them. What is the big deal about covered up oil glands? Well if the oil is not coming out easily, it will not be able to get onto your eyes and your tear film will be less than optimal, often times making your eyes feel dry and uncomfortable and you will also be unable to wear contacts comfortably. You do not have to stop wearing eyeliner, just keep it towards the front of the lid margin, away from those oil glands!
