Advanced Lens Technology For Your Eyes

For many people, the biggest decision when buying spectacles has traditionally concerned which frames to choose.

However, there are also huge variations in lenses, and it is important choose the right ones for your eyes and your needs. Your lenses will be doing all the hard work, so make sure you choose the best. Good quality lenses will provide the sharpest vision, will be more resistant to scratches, and will be much more pleasurable to wear. Cheaper lenses may prove to be a false economy.

There are many different types of lenses to choose from, and it can be confusing. There are specialised lenses for indoors and computer work, sports, and driving. Lenses can be anti-reflective and anti-scratch coatings. There are different thicknesses to consider. And don’t forget progressives (‘varifocals’) and tints! We have provided a simple guide to the main options using Seiko lenses for reference. Seiko has been at the forefront of lens technology for almost fifty years. From anti-reflective coatings to sophisticated varifocals, Seiko has consistently led the way in delivering tomorrow’s lens technology today.
