obtaining your best sight with glasses With each issue of our online IE Bend Magazine we enjoy introducing you to the seasons newest fashion eyewear. By offering this “pre-shopping online experience” some have asked if we are now selling glasses on the internet. The simple answer is no, but let me go into a little detail. Over the last 15 years we have seen the introduction and growth of online optical shops selling glasses at amazing low prices and proudly advertising that “Leading online stores cut out the middleman so you pay less.” May we add of course you’ll also get less, since what one is purchasing on the internet is “self service glasses.” As a savvy shopper, when considering purchasing glasses, some forethought should be given to the question “how well will I see with these glasses” in addition to the price. The answer is that to obtain our best sight with glasses we need to pay attention to three interrelated components.
All glasses are not the same.
1. Your Lenses - consider the optical quality and characteristics
of the lens material in addition to the level of lens technology used in the optical design and coatings.
2. Your Frame - consider the design features and quality of
materials that will hold up with daily use (and abuse) plus, of course, style.
3. The ongoing service of your glasses - consider the skill
of the optician who helps you in selecting a properly fit frame for your prescription, then double checks the finished lenses for exactness, adjusts your frames for proper and comfortable fit and then continues to service your glasses, whether they get sat on or lose their adjustment from normal wear.
a focus on lenses The last several issues of our online frame fashion magazine focused on frames and country of origin. Daily we are overwhelmed with TV and internet specials that offer “complete glasses from $6.95” that gives us all pause to question. The mass marketers would have you believe that “all glasses are the same” and they are offering “the same glasses” for these unbelievably low prices. I can tell you that after studying lens quality and performance for several decades with multiple lens manufacturers and for thousands of patients who want great sight that “all glasses are NOT the same.”
Our goal at Integrated Eyecare is simply to give each of our patients the opportunity to see their best. This requires, in addition to using the best possible eye exam equipment and testing processes, continual searching for the best optical products and materials offered. You, like every patient in our optical, is prescribed Hoya Phoenix or Hoya Our goal is to Hi-index lenses with matched coatings. give each of our We have researched and found that patients the Hoya lenses are consistently made to opportunity to the highest optical standards and Hoya see their best. continues to invest in advanced optical lens design features and coatings. In head-to-head tests, our patients report back to us that they can see the difference with Hoya lenses and coatings. Professional photographers would not consider using lenses and filters based only on price. These professionals livelihood is dependant on obtaining outstanding clarity which they achieve by demanding and using the best optical materials and coatings. We make the same commitment to each of our patients by offering only the best lenses and coatings for your eyes.
