Our on-site laboratory uses the latest technology so that your new glasses will give you the best vision possible.
Types of Lenses
These lenses function as the all-purpose glasses for the person who only needs help with distance or near vision, but not both.
Flat Top / “D” Bifocal
This popular bifocal looks like a half circle. The bifocal portion is made in a variety of widths to accommodate those who prefer a wider reading field of view.
These lenses are called “No Line Bifocals”. They provide all the benefits of bifocals but add the feature of continuous clear vision at all distance, including mid range (arms length). Progressive lenses have the cosmetic advantage of appearing to be single vision lenses, so they never reveal the user wears bifocals.
Eye Zen with Blue filter
Eyezen enhanced single vision lenses are designed for the way you see the world, reducing strain from viewing digital devices. These computer lenses also protect from harmful blue light, helping to keep your eyes safe and comfortable, even on your most digital days.
These lenses provide special visual and cosmetic benefits for stronger corrections and increase edge-to-edge clarity. They are flatter and thinner than conventional lenses.
Is Blue Light Harmful?
It’s part of the visible light spectrum, which comes from both the sun and artificial light sources like digital screens, cell phones and fluorescent lights. This type of light moves at a higher frequency and gets absorbed deep in the eye. This causes eye strain, fatigue and ocular disease to develop sooner, making it potentially impacting to long-term vision. Overexposure to blue-violet light or Harmful Blue Light, especially outside in the sun and through constant use of electronic devices and screens, is why protecting your vision has never been more important.
There are lenses that help reduce exposure to Harmful Blue Light that can provide protection at 20-30%.
Anti-Reflective Coatings – Crizal®
Crizal® features several unique properties as compared to other quality anti-reflective coatings. The coating attracts less dirt and debris, leaving the lens clean longer, thus requiring less frequent cleaning. The lenses are also easier to clean thanks to the densely packed coating which forms a smooth surface, which prevents dirt and oil from getting trapped.
Crizal® is unconditionally warranted for patient satisfaction under normal use for one year.
Scratch Protective Coating
Special coatings have been developed to help protect lenses from normal scratching, however no lenses are scratch proof. Each and every pair of our lenses can be specially treated with this coating.
Whether to enhance your vision or for fashion, variety of colours can be added to your lens. Plastic lenses are able to absorb dyes at the right temperature.
Polarized Sun Lenses
Polarized lenses provide you with the best visual experience for all your outdoor activities. These sun lenses contain a special filter that blocks intense reflected light, reducing glare — especially on the water. Wearing polarized lenses allows greater eye comfort, an unmatched clarity of vision, and a truer colour perception compared to ordinary sun lenses.
Ultra Violet (UV) Protection
Ultraviolet rays pose potential harm to your eyes. Special treatment is available for plastic lenses that completely blocks hazardous UV light.
These lenses are able to change colour. They darken when going outside, and clear up when out of the sun. In addition to regular photochromatic lenses we offer Transitions® lenses – the fastest, clearest and darkest photochromatic lenses available:
- As clear as regular clear lenses indoors
- As dark as sunglasses outside in bright light
- Fast to activate and fade back
- Block 100% of harmful UV rays
- Reduce eye fatigue
- Improve contrast
- Offer the right tint at the right time in changing light
Uniquely designed to protect your eyes from the brightest sun outdoors and harsh artificial light indoors. Transitions® XTRActive® are extra dark outdoors protecting your eyes from the brightest sun, even in the hottest conditions. These lenses darken behind the windshield to protect drivers’ eyes from sunlight.
I've been a patient for over 25 years. Dr. George De Rubeis has always been personable, professional, and is always willing to answer all questions. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Starcevic has been my doctor for over 20 years. He is great! I had a very thorough exam and all concerns about the health of my eyes were answered.
