Billions of people around the world can see more clearly because of eyeglasses. To help us learn about glasses and the latest in lens technology, Dr. Suh interviews Kara Jones, a licensed optician with Comprehensive EyeCare.

We discuss the importance of the measurements performed on your eyes. The various types of lenses can be confusing – single vision, bifocals, trifocals, progressive, no-line bifocals, etc. Lens materials are improving and are enabling people who have higher prescriptions to wear thinner lenses. Digital lenses are all the rage in the optical world and allow people to see clearer than before. We also discuss polarized lenses in sunglasses, blue-filtering lenses, Transition lenses, and anti-glare coatings. Many people who purchase their glasses online can end up with buyer’s remorse. Find out the advantages of ordering your glasses from an optical shop.
