How do I choose lenses for my glasses?

What? Doesn't my optician know which lenses are the best choice for me? 
Yes, of course. An eye care professional is a specialist who can tailor glasses to your individual needs and preferences. However, with today's advanced lens technology, there is an abundance of options whereby the optician acts as your guide and advisor. It's only you who can evaluate and prioritise your own preferences. That's why your engagement in choosing lenses will result in better vision!

Is there really a difference between the lenses in a pair of glasses?

Yes! If you look at other glasses, their lenses appear to be just plastic… But depending on the lenses in your glasses you will perceive and experience what you see differently.

What is lens quality?

Almost every manufacturer claims to provide ‘quality lenses’. But, unlike ‘quality’ that’s partly emotionally perceived (in a similar way as wine, clothes and spectacle frames), lens quality is all about technical features in materials, coating and manufacturing precision. In the end, it’s pure science.

Why should I choose a premium quality lens over a budget lens?

Simply because the premium quality lens will perform much better with regards to quality of vision, durability and maintenance.

How do I choose lenses for my glasses?

It depends on your needs and preferences. These, in turn, depend on your lifestyle. How much time do you spend in front of a screen each day, or driving a car? Put simply, the combination of your choices should reflect who you are.
