We constantly strive to gain feedback from our patients to perfect our approach...
For years, we've sought an answer to the challenge of providing effective vision correction at varying distances. Bifocals and trifocals are a great first step, but those "lines" can be distracting. A more comfortable and attractive solution is here today! We now offer progressive lenses that provide a smooth transition to improve your range of vision for near, far and everything in between, and they eliminate those lines! Our Opticians are highly skilled in making glasses to your exact specifications using the best choice of materials for your particular needs and budget. Our practice uses a wide range of lens designs by leading manufacturers in the industry (i.e Zeiss, Essilor, Shamir and HOYA).
Ordinary tinted sun lenses merely darken what you see and mask the real problems of glare. Polarized lenses are designed to conquer glare. Water, snow and even pavement create glare that not only blurs vision but also causes squinting, eye fatigue and even impaired acuity.
Blue Light Protection for Digital Device Users
Most of us have occupations that demand long hours of screen time. We also tend to over indulge in digital device use outside of the office. Sadly, Blue-Violet light can be harmful to delicate retinal cells deep in the eye. It is now a risk factor for the onset of age-related macular degeneration, a progressive and potentially blinding eye disease.
What's the solution?? Anti-glare and blue light filtering lenses developed both to enhance your focus, reduce eyestrain at the screen and overall help you function better. Lunettes du Monde Optometry offers a multitude of latest technology:
Blue light filtering anti-glare coatings:
Specialty Single Vision Lenses (designed for prolonged near and intermediate work):
This tremendous technology allows your glasses to adapt naturally to changes in your environment and change from light to dark as you move between indoors and outdoors. When UV rays are present, they darken, so you're protected, and they lighten when indoors. Their lightweight design also includes scratch resistant coating.
Transitions Adaptive Vantage Lenses NEW!!
First lenses ever to combine both polarization and photochromatic properties. They darken and provide variable polarization in response to bright, outdoor light.
To drive safely at night you need all the light possible. AR Coatings increase the amount of light transmitted through eyeglasses. Reflections off the front of your eyeglasses can make it difficult for people to see your eyes.
Anti-reflective (AR) coatings make eyeglass lenses virtually invisible so the focus is on you and not the distracting reflections from your surrounding environment.
Ask about Crizal Prevencia and Hoya Recharge AR coating for added blue light protection
UV Protection coating
Protects your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. We recommend that all eye wear have a UV factor of 95% or more.

Tint adds to your appearance while adding comfort and protection from glare and in many cases relief from eyestrain.
