One of the most significant advances in the manufacturing of eyeglass lenses involves the introduction of “free form” technology. This revolutionary digital manufacturing process makes it possible to transform the way we see through eyeglass lenses much in the same way that high-definition TV improved upon older analogue TV pictures. Precision diamond-cut high-definition (digital) lenses utilize computer-aided design and surfacing to customized eyeglass lenses that provide unsurpassed correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. As a result, high-definition lenses provide sharper image quality, better peripheral vision, improved contrast sensitivity, and less night glare. While these lenses cost a bit more, most find the added expense is more than worth the improved vision they provide. . We combine today’s modern technology with personalized attention directed specifically to the eye care needs of our patients. Free-form lens-manufacturing technology can surface lenses in power increments of 0.01 diopter (D) compared with 0.125 to 0.25 D increments of conventional eyeglass lens tooling.
