View Full Version : Lenses
Of all you spec wearers out there has anyone tried them new fancy "high definition" lenses?
Going for the yearly eye exam. Where I go is touting IZONLENS lenses.
Not so sure I'm ready to buy into the technology - yet.

I have some fancy dancy new lenses, but not the ones you gave a link to. I would be one to try them though. They look good to me.
With the glasses I have they actually measured the travel or movement of my eyes as I looked from side to side.
I also have the ultra, thin ultra light, progressive - If I didn't I would be wearing coke bottles.
Big money - but the way I "see" it. These things are on my head from the time I get out of bed till the time I go to bed. If I didn'g have them I would not be able to drive, go to work, or do woodworking.
I think it is a small price to pay - to be able to see.

As I understand the technology...
The lenses are ground to match the EXACT specifications that match the shape of the eye. It sounds like a really good concept and I may inquire when my perscription is to be renewed.
There is one thing that sort of bothers me. What happens to this ultra precision correction when the glasses slide down your nose a bit?

Then you wrap a more friction tape around the crossbar, I would think that would be obvious. :+

I've tried both 'High-Index' and 'Transitions' lenses . . . I'd do the high-index route again (though tye don't look as 'phancy' as the ones you linked) . . . the transitions are just annoying as they do NOT get dark in a car, as auto glass (modern anyways) filters out the UV they need to react.
