One pair of glasses usually won’t do it all. While many people make do with just one pair of glasses, we want people to be aware that settling for one general-purpose pair often means a compromise on their vision.
Take advantage of your optical extras to find the perfect eyewear to update or complement your current pair. Our job as eyewear experts is to recommend what will benefit you most and help you achieve the sharpest vision possible, and we take this job seriously. Whether you spend most of your time in front of digital screens, lead a very active lifestyle or want a high-fashion pair for those special occasions, we’ll tailor our eyewear solution to ensure you get the most out of your annual optical extras.
So what eyewear solutions are available for the various aspects of life?
- Digital Eyewear
Eye fatigue, blurred vision and headaches are becoming more and more commonplace, as are neck, shoulder and back pain. This is no surprise given that Australians spend an average of 10 hours and 24 minutes on digital devices every day1. A dedicated pair of digital eyewear is recommended for people who spend 2 or more hours in front of digital screens, to help protect the eyes from the strain of their changing visual environment.
- Prescription Sunglasses
Prescription sunglasses are one of life’s necessities for glasses wearers. Now that there are so many prescriptable frame options available, almost anyone can enjoy the outdoors with superior clarity and protection from damaging UV and glare at the same time. With summer just around the corner, a pair of prescription sunglasses is the perfect way to maximise one’s optical extras.
- Contact Lenses
Contact lenses give people the freedom they need when glasses can get in the way. Like for sport, travel, weekends and special occasions. The everyday pair simply doesn’t meet every need. With the latest technologies in contact lenses, even the multifocal wearer can see as clearly at varying distances as they would with glasses.
- Reading Glasses
Close up activities like reading and computer work can put a strain on the eyes and neck. Progressive glasses (also known as multifocals) can eliminate the need to constantly remove or peer over the top of a pair of glasses. Depending on one’s level of cover, reading glasses are often completely covered by optical benefits.
- Sports Eyewear
Sports-specific eyewear are designed to protect the eyes from both injury and harmful UV rays. Something an everyday pair is not built to do. Sports eyewear can enhance one’s performance and visual comfort on the field. A smarter way for a sports enthusiast or athlete to spend their optical benefits.
