People tend to do a lot of worrying about the way their eyeglasses look and whose logo is printed on the on the sidepiece. Optical stores, even us here at Contemporary Eye Care are guilty of advertising our designer fashion frames while often neglecting to place an equal amount of advertising emphasis on the lenses that go into those glasses, after all it is the lenses that help you see while the frame’s main function is to hold those lenses up in front of your eyes. Actually our practice is very proud of the East New York eye lenses we put into our eyeglasses, which are of the highest quality and from the most reliable brands.
Our eyeglasses feature the latest innovations in lens technology to improve the effectiveness, strength and protective properties. For instance, our optical store offers progressive East New York eye lenses for those patients that need vision correction for both reading and distance vision. These are bifocal lenses that have no lines and allow for vision correction all along the distance spectrum. High index plastic lenses are thinner and lighter than regular plastic lenses and offer 100 percent protection from ultraviolet light. Polycarbonate lenses are a type of high index lens but have 10 times the impact resistance of traditional plastic lenses. Trivex lenses have properties similar to polycarbonate lenses but offer more protection for people engaged in sports or other active pursuits.
Our optical shops also feature aspheric eyeglasses, which have East New York eye lenses that differ from typical lenses in that the curvature of the lens varies from layer to layer depending on how close that layer is to the center of the lens. Since aspheric lenses have a flatter curvature they project a slimmer more attractive profile, especially for prescriptions that are stronger. Our optical shop also offers photochromatic lenses that darken or get lighter with changes in the ambient light, such as moving from daylight to indoor lighting. Let us put these outstanding quality lenses into one of our designer frames and make a great pair of eyeglasses for you.
