See Wider & Sharper In All Light Conditions with Varilux© Lenses

Varilux Varilux® eyeglass lenses are progressive addition lenses (PAL) and are designed with advanced lenses technology to provide limitless and flawless vision for people with presbyopia. Unionville Optometry in Markham Ontario offers Varilux lenses, which have an exclusive triple-patented lens design called the Instant Focus System. This eyeglass lens design eliminates the distracting lines in the lenses so you can see clearly up close, far away, and everywhere in between, just like natural vision.

Persona PHD© Lenses – Progressive HD that Performs Like Single Vision Lens

Persona PhdPersona Progressive High Definition lenses (Persona Phd® by Riverside Optical Lab) have all of the optics on the “inside” of the lens so it’s closer to the eye. This lens design reduces lens distortion by up to 20% and increases your field of vision by up to 30%. This is accomplished by enlarging the effective reading area and performing very similar to a single vision lens so there is no sensation of change. Persona Phd® lenses offer 3 distinct eyeglass lens designs including general purpose Persona Phd, Persona Phd Distance for “distance” viewing activities such as sports and driving, and Persona Phd Near for “near” viewing activities.

Transitions© Lenses Adapts to Light with New Trans-Polarizing Process

TransitionsTransitions® lenses use Chromea7 technology so that the lenses respond to more types of light to give you exactly the shade you need. Transitions® eyeglass lens products are designed to be worn as “everyday lenses” for indoor use. But, whenever you step outside this eyeglass lens brand automatically adapts to ensure comfortable viewing while protecting your eyes from damaging UV rays. Unionville Optometry offers three types of Transitions® lens products including:

  • Transitions Signature Lenses – Primary prescription eyeglass lenses that are fully clear indoors and optimally tinted outdoors.
  • Transitions Vantage Lenses – These offer just a hint of tinting indoors and variable polarization that adjusts for outdoor glare levels; as the lens gets darker, glare is reduced and vision becomes crisper and sharper.
  • Transitions XTRActive Lenses – These also offer a hint of tinting indoors plus the darkest lens outdoord to provide more activation for added eye protection.
