Choosing Lenses

How to Select the Right Eyeglass Lenses

You may wonder, "Why do I need to choose eyeglass lenses myself? Shouldn't my optician make that decision?" While it's true that Eye Care Professionals are experts in tailoring lenses to your specific needs and preferences, modern lens technology offers a multitude of options. Your optician serves as your knowledgeable guide and advisor in this process. However, because your preferences are unique, your active involvement in choosing the right lenses plays a vital role in achieving the best vision possible. Your input matters, as it ensures that your eyeglasses align perfectly with your vision needs and personal preferences, resulting in improved visual clarity and satisfaction!

Are All Eyeglass Lenses the Same?

It might seem that all eyeglass lenses are simply made of plastic, especially when you observe other eyeglass wearers. However, it's essential to understand that the lenses in your eyeglasses can significantly impact your perception and visual experience. Each lens type and design has unique qualities that influence how you see the world, making the difference in your eyeglass lenses far from negligible.


Understanding the Quality of Eyeglass Lenses

Many eyeglass manufacturers tout their lenses as being of "high quality." However, unlike quality attributes that may be emotionally perceived in products like wine, clothing, or spectacle frames, the quality of eyeglass lenses is primarily determined by technical factors related to materials, coatings, and manufacturing precision. In essence, it's a realm grounded in pure science, where the technical features of the lenses play a crucial role in defining their quality.


What Sets Premium Quality Lenses Apart from Budget Options?

Opting for a premium quality lens over a budget alternative is a wise choice because premium lenses excel in terms of vision clarity, durability, and ease of maintenance. At T&S Opticians we stock Hoya Vision lenses.

Choosing the perfect spectacle lenses is a personalized process that hinges on your unique needs and preferences. These, in turn, are influenced by your lifestyle. Consider factors such as the amount of screen time you engage in daily or your driving habits. Ultimately, your lens choices should harmoniously align with your individuality and reflect your lifestyle.
