Lens Info

Here are some of the choices Dr. Anderson may recommend for you.

Contacts

  • Toric and Bifocal contact lenses – These are daily wear frequent replacement lenses recommended for wearing up to 2 weeks. They must be cleaned and disinfected after each use.

     

  • 1 Day Contact Lenses – are recommended for single-use daily disposable lenses. In other words, you wear them during working hours then remove them and throw them away before you go to sleep at night.

 

Glasses

Depending on your prescription, there are various different lens materials to make your glasses very thin and light.

  • -Mid index
  • -High index

Polycarbonate or trivex materials are very popular with children’s glasses and safety glasses.  They are the most impact resistant, safest, and thin lens available.  There also come automatically with scratch coating and UV protection.

There are various different treatments we can implement to your lenses also.

  • Transitions:  when your lenses change from clear indoors to dark outdoors like sunglasses
  • Anti-reflective coatings like Crizal:  help with glare indoors like when working on the computer or working under fluorescent lights.  Also helps with nighttime driving (halos around headlights).
  • TD2:  a very tough scratch coating that helps lenses not get scratched as easily.  Comes with a 2 year warranty.
