If you’re on the search for reading glasses and you come across the words ”optical quality” and you’re not quite sure what that exactly means read on for a simple explanation.
Optical quality lenses are made from high quality plastics that meet certain ophthalmic standards. Free of waves, imperfections and providing true visual clarity, optical quality lenses allow you to see clearly effortlessly. If your eyes are struggling to see through a lens that is less than totally clear you will tire easily and may even get headaches or feel dizzy. Optical grade plastic lenses that include a uniform surface with gradual curves (referred to as aspheric lenses), eliminate distortion and make your lenses thinner and they look nicer because they cut down on the magnification of your eyes (which is usually more noticeable with higher lens strengths). Optical quality frames are made from superior materials; the same as those used for prescription eyewear so they are also suitable for your prescription lenses.
Better quality frames last longer. They fit better and they are able to withstand every day wear and tear. Better quality lenses mean clearer vision. Optical quality lenses will give you the clearest vision if you don’t want or need prescription eyewear. Optical quality frames wear longer and more comfortably.
BTW, Renee's READERS are made of the same quality as prescription eyewear with meticulous attention to detail in their design and fit with the noticeably sharp, clear vision of optical quality lenses.
