I know that you’ve all heard me mention on here about Digitally Surfaced Progressive lenses. These lenses are designed for your specific prescription and your personal measurements. These lenses really do give you clearer vision, better peripheral, and a wider field of view in your intermediate and reading zones. If your prescription is out of the ordinary, then you notice even better results.
What you may not have known, is that you can also get these lenses in single vision. You get most of the same benefits in a digitally surfaced single vision lens: clearer overall vision, better peripheral vision and usually a thinner lens. The intermediate and reading zone benefits don’t apply, but I’ll tell you: If you have a fair amount of astigmatism (also called cylinder), or a higher Rx, whether you’re nearsighted or farsighted, these lenses do make a difference. I have a fairly heavy script (-6.00), and I do notice a difference between my digitally surfaced lenses and my traditionally surfaced lenses. I have significantly better peripheral vision, and I do feel that it’s also clearer all around. These lenses truly are amazing. If you have questions, drop me a line. I’m always happy to talk optics!
Now that it’s time for a whole new sports season, I wanted to talk about Rec Specs protective eyeglasses and sunglasses again. Rec Specs has been producing eyewear to protect you for many years, and they have refined the styles, so they don’t look like birth control glasses anymore! They have a very cool line for kids; the Morpheus Street Series. These glasses have funky images on the sides, and cool colors that kids will actually want to wear. They fit close over the eyes, and are comfortable as well.
Rec Specs also makes eyeglasses for tweens, teens and adults as well. Whether you play racquetball, soccer, baseball, floor hockey, field hockey, or any other sport, these glasses will make sure you can see well, as well as protecting your eyes from just about anything. You can make them clear, sunglasses, or transitions, so they work well indoors, as well as outdoors.
We use our eyes every day, from the moment we wake up, until we go to sleep at night. Make sure you take care of them!
