Whatever your vision needs, Fairfield Eyecare is here to help. Once you've picked your perfect frames, we will educate you on the available options for lenses and coatings and help you to decide what will be best for you in terms of affordability, convenience, aesthetic, and comfort.

At Fairfield Eyecare, we can help you with:

  • -single vision (distance or reading)
  • -bifocals
  • -trifocals
  • -computer and interview lenses
  • -progressives
  • -tints
  • -Transitions

Are you used to bifocals or trifocals, but wonder if there are other options? Have you heard about progressive lenses but not really understood what they were about?

   Progressive Lenses

Progressive lenses are like trifocals (the lens has distance, intermediate/computer, and reading power), but without the defining lines separating the powers. In other words, it looks just like a single-vision lens, but contains all three powers. The transition between powers is also less jarring than in conventional trifocal lenses.

Technology for progressive lenses has improved drastically over the last few years. Fairfield Eyecare deals with a range of Varilux-brand progressive lenses, including the top-of-the-line customized Varilux Ipseo lens. This lens is a high-definition digital lens, and allows the wearer to see in brighter colours and sharper contrast. There is also almost no blur on the sides of the lenses as the field of vision is the widest it has ever been. This is possible thanks to the use of the in-store Visioffice machine, which allows us to precisely measure the wearer's specific visual behaviours. As an example, two people with the same prescription and the same eyeglass frame process visual information differently, and therefore will end up with slightly different Ipseo lenses after being measured on the machine. Perfect vision for each, completely customized.

   Lens Coatings

Lenses that are manufactured with quality coatings are essential in extending the life of your glasses. Lenses that have no coatings, or even low-quality coatings, can and will suffer from scratches, smudges, difficulties in cleaning, and unattractive glare for the wearer. At Fairfield Eyecare, we prefer to offer coatings in the best quality available on the market: Crizal. Crizal is scratch-resistant, repels dust so your glasses are easier to clean, fights fingerprints, stops glare, and provides a better quality of vision.
