Digital technology has affected almost every aspect of our lives, and now it’s making a big impact on the optical industry. Digitally customized eyeglass lenses are a new technology that could change the way you see – forever.
The traditional manufacturing process starts with a standard, pre-cut lens. This results in glasses that are a close (but not exact) match to your prescription.
Digital manufacturing uses computer-aided design and surfacing to create customized lenses unique to your specific prescription. These digitally surfaced lenses are so accurate it’s like high definition for your eyes!
Digitally customized lenses can benefit anyone who wears glasses. However, people with complex prescriptions and progressive lenses notice the biggest improvements.
Three benefits of digitally customized lenses
- Sharper vision. When it comes to matching your prescription, digitally customized lenses are 12 times more accurate than traditional lenses. Since these lenses are designed specifically for you, you’ll notice much sharper vision.
- Clear, distortion-free sight. If you wear progressive lenses cut with traditional methods, you may experience distortion in your peripheral vision. Objects around the edges of your glasses can seem blurry or shaky, and you may experience symptoms similar to motion sickness. Digitally customized lenses minimize distortions, helping progressive lens wearers see, and feel, better.
- Better night vision. Digitally customized lenses come with a premium anti-reflective coating, which eliminates glare. This is especially helpful for driving at night, when oncoming headlights can be blinding.
