Today I would like to talk about cutting edge technology for spectacle lenses. For a little background we have always been able to accurately assess near sightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. These "aberrations" correct about 85% of your vision. We have also known that there were other aberrations or hills and valleys in the visual system. A few years ago something called wavefront technology came along which was able to measure these other aberrations. This information has been used successfully in lasik proceedures in the last few years. However this additional information has never been possible to incorporate in specatacle lenses until now. Izon lenses use the ZVIEW aberrometer to collect this information and incorporate it into new lenses both single vision and progressives to produce a final product which offers the most clear lens available today. These lenses produce a sharp clear high definition image with improved night driving. If you have ever had brand new prescriptions from your eye doctor but everything still seems a little off, the problem is probably these other aberrations which are not being corrected.
Our patients have been raving about these new lenses. One lady stated "her old lenses were like the technolgy of Jurrasic Park but her new lenses were like the clarity of Avatar.
It is great that these lenses are available in both single vision and progressive.
Our office is very proud to be able to offer these advanced lenses to improve vision to the highest quality available today. We would suggest that the next time you have your eyes examined to try to find a practioner that offers these lneses. Not everyone needs these lenses but for those that do the difference is amazing.
