Types of Lenses

Single Vision - corrects vision in a specific distance

 

Progressives - commonly known as the “no-line bifocal”, usually needed after the age of 40, increases in magnification as you go down the lens to give distance, mid-range and near vision

Computer - provides midrange vision at the top of the lens and near vision at the bottom of the lens, great for  desk work

 

Bifocals - “with the line bifocal”, again used after the age of 40 which gives distance and near but no mid-range vision.

Technology & Treatments

Digital Surfacing - new technology in the making of lenses which is computer generated to help reduce distortion and provide more accurate results, available in single vision and progressive lenses

 

High Index Lenses - used mostly for higher prescriptions to reduce the thickness of the lenses

 

Scratch Coating - a protective layer to help reduce scratches

 

Anti-Glare Coating - used to reduce glare especially for night driving, reading and computer use, also includes the scratch coating

Blue Filter Tint/Coating - help to reduce blue light that can cause digital eyestrain, headaches, alter circadian rhythms, worsen dry eye symptoms and cause retinal disease

Sun Protection

Tinted lenses help protect the eyes from harmful UV and blue light and provide comfort by reducing the amount of light and glare entering the eyes. We will help select which option best suit your needs whether it be sunglasses, transitions or clip-ons.

Sunglasses

Polarized and non-polarized lenses with variable levels of tints and mirror options.

 

Maui Jim superior lenses provide 100% UVA, UVB and UVC protection, filters about 95% of harmful blue light and eliminates about 99.9% of glare.  Their Polarized Plus 2 lens technology offers durability and clearer vision making colours vibrant.

Serengeti distinctive sunglasses provide 100% UVA and UVB protection, filters about 85-95% harmful blue light and eliminates about 99.9% of glare.  Their Spectral Control photochromatic technology allows different amount light in depending on the lighting conditions while providing enhanced details and colours. This is a great option for those who find sunglasses too dark at times.  They also offer a non-polarized option which is great for pilots who need to see LED controls.  Their durable coating helps resist dust, smudges and in their trivex material, fog.  

Clip-ons

Clip-ons are tinted (polarized or non-polarized) lenses that attach onto a frame (either magnetic or with prongs) and is a cost-effective option to providing eye protection and comfort.  If the frame supplier does not offer a clip-on option, we can custom make one for your frame. Eco, Easy Clip and Takumi are some collections that offer polarized magnetic clip-ons.

Transitions lenses   automatically darken when outside and lighten when inside.  They are convenient for those who prefer not to carry an extra pair of sunglasses or clip-ons and gives up to 85% harmful blue light and 100% UVA and UVB protection.  They now come in more tints allowing different levels of light in.  

Safety & Sports Eyewear

Clip-ons are tinted (polarized or non-polarized) lenses that attach onto a frame (either magnetic or with prongs) and is a cost-effective option to providing eye protection and comfort.  If the frame supplier does not offer a clip-on option, we can custom make one for your frame. Eco, Easy Clip and Takumi are some collections that offer polarized magnetic clip-ons.

It is important to protect the eyes from occupational and recreational activities.  We work with Hilco and Hoya Vision to provide durable, ANSI (American National Standards Institute) rated safety brand options such as OnGuard for work and sports.

Accessories

We also carry lens cleaners, microfiber lens cloths, glasses cases, straps, glasses holders (some look like jewelry!), screwdrivers over the counter reading glasses. 

 

Warranties

Most frames and lenses come with a 1 to 2 year warranty for defective workmanship.  Details will be provided at the time of purchase.   There is also a 90 day guarantee if you cannot adapt to the progressive lenses, we will change back to single vision lenses or bifocals at no charge (assuming new costs do not exceed the original costs). 

Also, Dr. Bassi will recheck the prescription at no extra charge if there are issues with your new glasses.  If the glasses were purchased elsewhere, the dispenser will be responsible for rechecking the workmanship of the glasses.
