Often referred to as high-definition, Eyes on Chagrin is proud to offer digitally customized lenses. These lenses provide wearers with a more accurate prescription, sharper vision, a wider field of view with less peripheral blur, and a finished product that is completely customized for the customer. Think about the first time you saw a high-definition television. The colors seemed brighter, contrast became more clearer, and you saw everything how it was supposed to look. Customized lenses are like having HD for your eyes as they offer an increased sharpness in all light conditions, even at night and enable quick adaptation with enhanced colors which maximizes the optics.
Made using free-form technology, these lenses go through a completely different creation process compared to traditional progressives. Free-form technology uses the most sophisticated, state-of the-art equipment which is computer aided to offer only the highest level of precision.
Prescriptions are accurate up to one-hundredth a diopter* (0.01D), offering the highest level of precision.
Traditional progressives are accurate up to one-eighth a diopter (0.125 D), leaving a slight amount of room for error.
These lenses have a unique customized design made for your specific prescription and frame choice to offer the clearest vision.
Lens design is “fixed.” This means that the progressive you choose already has the design in it and is just waiting for the prescription to be ground into the back of the lens. The problem with this is that the frame chosen cannot be taken into account.
These offer the smoothest transition for better viewing zones, eliminating the “sweet spot,” and offering a natural posture when trying to read.
Tend to have a “sweet spot.” This is the spot where the you get the clearest vision. Most wearers have experienced this, especially when reading – resulting in a tendency to slightly lift your head when trying to read causing unnatural posture.
The widest field of view with the least amount of peripheral distortion and virtually eliminates the “swim effect.”
Peripheral blur and a “swim effect” is another common issue. This is when you shake your head fast and it feels like the room is moving. With this design you can order different types that will offer a wider field of view, but the swim effect can still be there.
