EYEWEAR – Lenses

Compensatory lenses: are lenses to compensate for a vision problem such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia

Treatment lenses (performance lenses) have a therapeutic effect and are used for things like:

  • relieving eye strain
  • encouraging eye movements
  • providing focus change
  • enhancing peripheral vision

Often times these are prescribed as reading glasses or multifocal lenses.  The multifocal lenses we use for children are for anti-fatigue design as compared with progressive lenses traditionally used for adults.
