Our doctors at Superior Eye take pride in making sure the prescription for your lenses is the most accurate it can be, but it’s important to know that the prescription is just the first step in designing a pair of glasses that will provide great vision and comfort for all your daily tasks. Our certified opticians will help you through the process.

Lens Design

Single Vision, Multifocal, Progressive, Aspheric, Computer Design, Anti-fatigue. There are over 50 manufacturers of progressive no-line bifocals and these can be identified by fine laser markings on the lens. The best lens designs use free-form generators controlled by computers to digitally grind powers that have been calculated to reduce distortions providing wider ranges of vision, stability with motion and greater visual comfort and accuracy.
