Glasses for Sarnia and Lambton County

Most of our patients spend considerable time in choosing frames for their glasses. But you should also consider your choice in lenses. Most lenses today are made of light, shatter-resistant materials such as high-index plastic and Trivex, which offer very clear vision. There are many options including:

  • Progressive lenses which are bifocal and even trifocal lenses without the tell-tale lines
  • Antireflective lenses reduce glare and eyestrain for the wearer and allow others to see your eyes instead of reflected glare
  • Photochromatic lenses adjust to the brightness of your environment
  • Polarized lenses eliminate glare for those who are outdoors driving, riding bikes or jogging
  • Aspheric and atoric lenses are an option for those with strong prescriptions for nearsightedness of farsightedness. These lenses are up to 45% thinner than standard lenses and may be an alternative that will fit and look better in your frames.

Scratch-resistant coatings are a good investment for children’s glasses or for glasses you wear while outdoors or playing sports. While these coatings are not scratch-proof, they do prevent minor scratches and keep your vision clear longer. If you are outdoors for extended periods of time, you may also want to consider lenses with a UV treatment to protect your eyes and the skin around your eyes from sun damage.
