Selecting the best lenses for your vision and protection can sometimes seem daunting. Our team of professionals will help you navigate the choices available so you can feel confident and happy with your lenses.
Single vision lenses correct one field of vision, either for far distances or for near distances. They also correct different levels of astigmatism.
Computer lenses correct vision for— you’ve got it— computer distances! It is a great option for those working in front of a screen for long hours.
Progressives correct multiple levels of vision. A gradual change in power from top to bottom provides clear vision for all distances.
WHAT TO CONSIDER
WHEN BUYING LENSES
COMPUTERS & SMART PHONES
The way we use our eyes has changed. Technology is literally at our fingertips. Screens, small print and computer usage are all affecting our vision and eye strain. There are options available for you from custom lenses made for extended computer use to special coatings that help alleviate eye fatigue. And did you know that your eye care professional can manipulate your prescription for customized office lenses? Visit Nuvo to see your options today!
BLUE LIGHT PROTECTION
Blue light is High Energy Visible (HEV) wavelengths that flicker more easily than longer, weaker wavelengths. This kind of flickering creates glare that can reduce visual contrast and affect sharpness and clarity. It can also contribute to eyestrain, headaches, physical and mental fatigue caused by hours of sitting in front of a computer or other electronic devices.
Transition lenses are adaptive to indoor and outdoor light! This awesome technology allows you to have clear lenses indoors and tinted ones outdoors! There are various colours available, and they provide 100% UVA/UVB protection. No need to switch eyewear from inside to outside! Awesome!
Did you know there is protective (Rx-able!) eyewear available for sports? Nuvo carries various styles paired with speciality lenses that offer great protection and visual solutions for any athlete playing sports of all intensities. Prescription sports goggles are also available. Visit us today!
Sun lenses should always offer 100% UVA/UVB protection, to keep your eyes safe from the advert affects of sun rays (corneal burns are a thing!). They also often serve as a protective barrier from the outside elements. In windy conditions, they help keep eyes moist and comfortable and prevent windblown particles from entering the eye. This is especially important for contact wearers. Consult with one of our Opticians today and find the best fit for you! Polarized lenses are also available!
Whether you’re buying multiple pairs of clear lenses, sun lenses or a combination of both, you can take advantage of our multiple pair discounts! You don’t have to sacrifice great quality for irresistible pricing! Visit our optical team with your valid prescription and we’ll go over all your options!
