Just as there are many frame materials – metal, plastic, and more – there are also different types of lens materials of which eyeglasses are made. It’s all about matching your personal wants and visual needs to today’s high tech lens materials. Ensuring that you have the perfect lens for your eyes and lifestyle is crucial. Here at Capital Vision Care we thrive to provide our patients with a wide range of products including the latest Crizal lenses from Essilor.

Crizal lenses eliminate the enemies of clear vision to help you better enjoy life:

  • Glare, caused by reflections, especially at night, or when working on the computer causes eye strain and provides a less aesthetic appearance;
  • Smudges, which diffuse light as it hits the lens and blur your vision;
  • Scratches, which reduce visual comfort;
  • Dust, which can be an obstacle to sharp vision;
  • Water drops, which distort vision;
  • Fog, which can be dangerous and uncomfortable.

Progressive Lenses

If you are over 40 and having difficulty with your vision, chances are you are experiencing presbyopia, the common gradual loss of near vision. But there is good news: you have more choices today than ever before. You don’t have to carry a separate pair of glasses for reading or wear lined bifocal lenses like your parents did.

Progressive lenses offer a smooth transition from distance vision through intermediate vision to near vision, and they supply all the in-between corrections as well. This means that instead of having just two different viewing zones (near and distant), like with bifocals, progressive lenses have progressive powers of correction (from bottom to top), easing eye strain and providing the most natural vision correction.
