EYEGLASS FRAMES & LENSES

Thinner, More Impact Resistant Lenses

Mr. Stebbing and Ms.Thomas's newest eyeglass lenses come from the well-known Essilor lens manufacturer. Their new Varilux progressives are both customizable and digital to personalize the lenses to your exact eyeglass prescription. With the great quality of Essilor lenses you can also enhance the look and vision in your new glasses by adding a thinner lens design, glare protection, polished edges, and ultra-violet light protective coatings. Many of our patients like Transition lenses which are specially-designed lenses that change from light to dark depending upon the UV light exposure. These lenses are great for people who are outdoor a lot in the bright sunlight such as on-the-go parents, golfers, and even children who spend a lot of time outdoors. In using the new redesigned Varilux lenses for progressives offered by Essilor, L & S Optical is also providing our patients with the widest, clearest channels and viewing zones currently available. The "distance only" or "reading only" eyeglass prescriptions, along with our standard bifocal/trifocal lenses as always are made with high quality and great care by our expert and experienced opticians.

Custom-Made Progressive Addition Lenses

Hoya, along with Zeiss and Definity, now also manufacture custom-made progressive addition lenses (PAL's) that provide virtually distortion free viewing at all distances.

PROFECTION 1.70 from Hoya adds a dynamic dimension to your lens selection with its digitally mastered PROFECTION™ lens series. This ultimate high index material offers patients with higher prescriptions uncompromised visual clarity over a range of distances in the thinnest, lightest, and most fashionable lenses available anywhere in the world.

Mr. Stebbing and Ms. Thomas need to take a few more measurements for these special lenses. All of this additional information is then sent to the manufacturer who designs a custom-made lens specifically for you.

Transition Lenses

TRANSITION lenses lighten and darken based on UV conditions (sunlight) and temperature. In sunlight - they darken. Inside - they lighten. Unlike glass photochromic lenses, they are not sensitive to temperature changes and will not darken in colder temperatures or lighten in extremely hot conditions. Transition Lenses are the clearest, darkest, and fastest photochromics available, offering convenient and automatic protection from UVA and UVB radiation. These lenses enhance your quality of vision by providing the combined benefits of optimal visual acuity, visual comfort, and protection from the damaging effects of UV radiation and glare.

Improved Anti-Reflection Coatings

Anti-reflection coatings have been around for years and provide you with clearer vision, as well as make your glasses look better. In the past, these lens coatings have been delicate and have required extreme care to avoid scratches. The latest generations of anti-reflective coatings are extremely durable and far superior in performance compared with their predecessors.


Computer Vision Syndrome

Tired and sore eyes, headaches, blurred vision, and general fatigue - these are just a few symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). Currently, CVS is the number one health complaint of office workers nationwide, affecting millions of people, including those with 20/20 vision. A pair of computer lenses, either as single vision, lined-bifocal or progressive addition lenses, can provide relief from computer eyestrain, making you more comfortable and more productive at your computer. Glare from the screen can also be reduced by special coatings and tints applied to your eyeglass lenses. By eliminating glare and the need to constantly refocus, your eyes remain comfortably at rest - even after hours at the computer.


Titamium - A Lightweight, Disaster-Resistant Eyeglass Frame With Style

Eyeglass manufacturers for years have sought to develop frames that are both extremely durable and very comfortable. Finally, after years of experimenting with the preparation, welding, plating, and coloring of titanium, they have achieved what many in the industry now consider the perfect eyeglass frame. The new titanium frames are very flexible, lightweight (about 40% lighter than steel), corrosion-resistant, and hypoallergenic. Their high tensile strength allows manufacturers to make very thin, delicate and stylish rimless and semi-rimless designs. Drs. Billig and Cassel are now wearing them, and both say that the frames are so light that they can hardly feel them. Shawn Stebbing and Rachel Thomas of L & S Optical in our office have a wide variety of these new titanium frames at very reasonable prices. In fact, visit our web site, www.ruxtoneye.com, for discounts on specific L & S titanium frames.

Progressive No Line Bifocal Eyeglass Lenses

Varilux Panamic is the newest progressive lens design from Varilux, the company that invented the progressive lens. It is a progressive addition lens, that is, a "no-line" multifocal that provides clear vision at all distances for patients who need bifocal prescriptions. In the past, most progressive designs have left some areas of distortion in the lens that limited the wearer's peripheral vision and yielded a narrow reading area, requiring a lot of head movement to scan across a page. The new Varilux Panamic is a custom-made lens that is designed to minimize distortions. Each lens is manufactured for your specific prescription to yield enhanced peripheral vision and a much wider reading area. These lenses provide vision that seems so natural, you might not be aware that you're wearing a bifocal.

Stronger, More Durable Eyeglass Frames

Many manufacturers have started making titanium-based alloy frames. All titanium frames are hypoallergenic, corrosion-resistant, and come in a wide-selection of attractive styles. In addition, since titanium is so durable, frames can be made thinner, which makes them even lighter on your face.

L & S Lens Tracing Unit

One of our most significant additions to L & S Optical over the past year has been a computerized, state-of-the-art Lens Tracing Unit. In the past, when you needed to replace the lenses in your frame, we had to send your frame to the lab and you were without it for a week. The Lens Tracing Unit is a device that traces an exact pattern of your lens and then digitizes the image so that it can be sent by computer directly to the lab to make your new prescription. This allows you to use your old prescription while the new lenses are manufactured.
