Did you know there are over 200 progressive lenses on the market today? Many consumers believe there is only one “kind” of progressive, and if you didn’t succeed in adapting to one, it means you “can’t wear progressives”. Not true!
The selection and design of lenses, whether single-vision, bifocal, progressive or specialty, is one way an independent optician can add value and quality to your life.
Did you also know that vision benefit companies (like EyeMed and VSP) limit your selection of lenses? They can dictate which laboratories are allowed to manufacture your lenses – all methods of controlling costs. An independent optician is able to fit you with EXACTLY the lenses you need, while passing savings directly to you. After all, neither one of us really wants to pay an insurance company, amirite?
