Breakthrough in Eyeglasses Lenses


  St. Charles Vision (Citywide; www.stcharlesvision.com) now offers Zeiss GT2 3D digitally customized lenses, providing a wider field of vision, better peripheral vision and less distortion for people who need glasses with bifocal or progressive lenses.

  Dr. Charles Glaser, an optometrist at St. Charles Vision, explains that digital customization, an unprecedented way of manufacturing eyeglass lenses, allows each lens to be cut to a curve that perfectly fits a patient's prescription. Traditional bifocals and progressive lenses are made by fitting a patient's prescription between the two closest options.

  The customized lenses are available at all six St. Charles Vision locations in the metro area. — Kandace Power Graves
