Calling attention to the advantages of eyeglasses as a means to correct refractive errors.
We base our opinion on the following convictions:
Glasses are non-intrusive to the eye, unlike other means of correction in case of a refractive error. Moreover, in many cases modern lens design and materials protect the eyes - to a certain extent - against being invaded by a harmful object.
2. Long technical tradition
Glasses were invented over seven centuries ago. The lenses as well as the frames have been improved ever since and this process is still going on at an increasing speed. This is the case with regard to the design and materials of lenses and frames resulting in an optimal viewing and wearing comfort.
3. Endless possibilities with respect to personal appearance
You can use your eyewear to be among the trendsetters, follow the fashion or even to react against it. In combination with this, glasses can be chosen either to accentuate or to gloss over certain facial traits. You can opt for low profile eyewear or for bold frames to make a statement and even switch between these extremes at will.
The primary function of visual correction can be combined with numerous other functions. We already mentioned safety and appearance. There is also the possibility to combine solutions to many different refractive needs in one and the same lens, protection against light, combination with safety goggles, wearable computerscreens, solutions for color blindness, hemianopsia, ptosis, dry eyes (moisture chamber), etc...
