VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron GET IN FRONT OF THE CURVE For those who would like their prescription eyeglass lenses to have a slimmer, more attractive profile, there are "aspheric" lenses. This design features lens curvatures that gradually change from the center of the lens to their outer edges. As a result, aspheric lenses can be manufactured with flatter curves without degrading the optical performance of the lens. Moreover, because aspheric lenses are flatter than conventional spherical lens designs, they magnify the wearer's eyes less, which makes their faces look better proportioned and more attractive. In some cases, aspheric lenses also improve the clarity of the wearer's peripheral (side) vision. All of these advantages over spherical lenses are good reasons to look into aspheric lenses. With aspheric lenses, people with strong prescriptions do not have to worry about the thickness of the lens in the frame. This opens up their options when it comes to selecting a frame shape and size. When choosing aspheric, make sure that the center of your eye is lined up with the middle of lens for clear vision. Aspheric lenses tend to have more reflections, so an anti-reflective coating is recommended! When it's time to make the all-important choice for the best frames to fit your budget and style, look to SKOWRON EYE CARE! At Skowron Eye Care, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S. Most high index plastic lenses are made with aspheric designs. SKOWRON EYE CARE 370 N.
