“Digital” is the new buzz word to describe progressive lenses which are made with modern CNC lathe technology. Many so-called digital lenses only have the front, or the back surface produced this way. The opposite surface often produced using inferior lathe, or molding technology. It is important to know that just because a lens is called “digital”, doesn’t mean that it is good.
A particular range of violet coloured light has been found to cause cumulative retinal damage. Outside you can protect yourself from this light with quality sunglasses. Unfortunately, the LEDs which are used as light sources for all our consumer electronics including TVs, phones, computer screens, pads and tablets, have a peak in their output at exactly this dangerous colour of light. We need protection inside as well. This is particularly true with younger people as their use of these devices means that their exposure is higher. Our lens manufacturers have developed special coating and tints which will reduce your exposure to this bad light.
We recognize the importance of protecting your eyes, and delicate skin around your eyes, against UV exposure with quality sunglasses. A variety of notable sunglasses are carried in our office to fit your personal needs. Adidas for your active endeavours or Tom Ford and Jimmy Choo if you want a more fashionable look. We also carry brand names such as Maui Jim, Ray Ban, Revo, Coach and Versace just to name a few.
