Find the right lenses for you

Ophthalmic lens technology has advanced to cater the varying needs of visual correction. There are many types of spectacle lenses to choose from to fit the conditions of wearer’s activities. If you need a spectacle prescription, there are several factors to consider when choosing the right lenses for you; which types of lenses to pick, the materials they are made in, and some optional coatings to maximize the comfort when wearing.

The types of lenses you choose depend on whether you want the spectacles to suit all activities or single activity.

Single Vision Lens  

If you are under age 40 and need prescription glasses, then single vision lenses may be sufficient enough for your visual correction. Single vision lenses have the same focal power throughout the lens to provide a single focus.

Progressive Lenses (Multifocal Lenses)

Progressive lenses provide a gradual transition in power within the lens to view all distance from near at hand to far across the room. If you are in your 40s or older, wearing progressive lenses have an advantage to see all distances clearly without taking the eyeglasses off and on.

VARILUX X SERIES

Near vision revolutionised

Wearers today need to multi-task quickly and freely. Varilux® X series™ lenses are designed with multiple fields of vision in mind. These near distance visual needs correspond to a range of between 40 and 70 cm from the wearer, known as arm’s length. Varilux X series has reinvented near vision at arm's length.

 

Reduced head movement

A common varifocal complaint from wearers is that they need to constantly move their head in the direction they wish to see. In all situations tested, Varilux X series wearers find they need very little head movement to find the right spot when multi-tasking at arm's reach.

 

Blue-violet and UV light protection with Eye Protect System

Embedded in Varilux X series, Eye Protect System protects wearers' eyes by absorbing selected blue-violet light and UV light into the lens.

Introducing Volume of Vision

Varifocal performance is measured by swim effect and binocular fields of vision. Varilux X series introduces a whole new performance criteria - Volume of Vision. When a wearer looks at a particular object through a Varilux X series lens they will now notice an improvement in depth and breadth of vision. This vision experience is exclusive to Varilux X series.
 

A new personalisation feature

Near vision tasks involves a whole body response, which is more complex than distance visions. For example, think of your body position when you read a tablet sat down. Varilux X series personalisation parameter ensures your patients' vision volume is positioned and shaped where and how they need it.
 

Lens protection with Crizal Sapphire UV

The Crizal Sapphie UV coating provides protection against UV light and is anti-reflective, scratch resistant, smudge repellent, water repellent and dust repellent.

VISION IN PERFECT HARMONY

 WITH SEIKO PRIME

Conventional progressive lenses manage a good viewing balance, if the prescription values for both eyes are similar. For the more sophisticated spectacle wearers who demand extra precision, quality, agreeability and design - we have developed SEIKO PRIME

LENSES, SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL

When you choose the frame for your glasses not only for practical, but especially also for aesthetic reasons, you expect the same qualities of the lenses. SEIKO PRIME progressive lenses will meet your every demand: Precise and sharp with a high definition visibility they also stunningly slim with an extra thin diametre. Simply the most beautiful lenses you have ever looked through.

VISION IN PERFECT HARMONY

SEIKO PRIME synchronises the fields of view for both eyes already for a difference in prescription value as little as +/- 0,5 sphere and/or cylinders - even around the outer edges. Before the actual production process is started,  a special modulation software simulates the later outcome, and optimises the synchronization effect accordingly. For an extra harmonious viewing experience.

RELAXATION FOR YOUR EYES

 Astigmatism is always a challenge - especially when it comes to progressive lenses. Thanks to Advanced Aspheric Design used to create SEIKO PRIME lenses distortions around the edges as well as limitations within the close vision zone are eliminated. Giving you perfect vision near and far and the most relaxing viewing experience you will ever have.


 

 

Transitions lenses help you see better today and tomorrow.


Transitions lenses are variable tint lenses. Indoors and at night, Transitions lenses stay as clear as regular clear lenses.
Outdoors, in the UV rays, they change tint to sunglass dark* in bright sunlight, reducing glare to help you see better. Transitions lenses also reduce eye fatigue as they constantly even out light variations. Your eyes will feel more comfortable all day long.
In addition, they block 100% of harmful UVA and UVB rays, helping to preserve your long term eye health.
Convenient? Transitions lenses automatically change tint as outdoor light conditions change, so you don’t have to change spectacles. The ideal choice for everyday
 

Polarized lenses do what no other lens or lens treatment can - block blinding glare. In addition, polarized lenses can enhance visual acuity, color contrast and visual comfort, and block 100% of harmful UVA (315 - 380 nm) and UVB (280 - 315 nm) light.
