Progressive Lenses in San Joaquin County, CA

Corrective Eyeglass Lenses Types

Midtown Optometry has a wide selection of specified lenses for all our patients. Because everyone’s needs are different, there are many different products and solutions available. During your eye exam, we’ll discuss your vision needs and how we can help. Here are some of the many lenses we offer at our San Joaquin County optometry and why they’re important.

BlueTech Lenses

BlueTech lenses are specialty, high-quality lenses infused with Blue Light Plus to protect your eyes from blue light. Blue light is caused by staring at computer screens for prolonged periods of time. As most people use computers for work, it’s important to provide protection to avoid the symptoms that can come from looking at blue light for too long. BlueTech lenses are superior to other blue light blocking lenses as they create protection against blue light without blurring the image or degrading your viewing experience. They filter harmful wavelengths that can cause eyestrain. Blue light technology symptoms include:
  • Eyestrain
  • Blurred vision
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia

Types of Corrective Lenses

Single Vision
Single vision lenses are designed to provide perfectly calculated vision where your prescription is uniquely cut into the lens.

Also known as varifocal lenses, progressive lenses have three prescriptions in one. This allows you to have up-close vision (reading a book), middle-distance (watching television), and long-distance viewing (driving) with ease.

Indoor lenses provide crystal-clear vision for detail-orientated tasks.

Special lenses include sports lenses for challenging conditions and children’s lenses for safe, comfortable vision.

Anti-Reflective Coatings
Treat your lenses by bonding the surface with anti-glare technology. This helps you live your lifestyle with ease.

Light Reactive
Don’t worry about keeping a spare pair of sunglasses with you. Light reactive lenses transition outdoors to provide you with comfort no matter where you go.

Prescription sunglasses allow you to choose your style and comfortably see outdoors in sunny environments.


Why are Corrective Lenses Important?

Kids At Risk

Dr. Thomas Gosling explains why children are most at risk to experience the negative effects of blue light — short arms, low levels of natural defenses (ocular lens pigment), hold devices close to their faces, and over seven hours per day of screen time. This is a quick cut from “Let’s Talk Eyes” hosted by Professor Murray.

Do Well in School

Whether your child is a bright underachiever, appears to lack motivation, has dyslexia or another learning disability, ADD or other behavioral problems, or has developmental delays, ASD, or other special needs, eye movement and eye coordination problems can often contribute to their challenges. We’ll discuss solutions after conducting an in-depth exam using our state-of-the-art technology and years of experience.

Be More Productive at Work

Many of us are in front of a screen for over eight hours a day for work. HOYA lenses are our industrial-grade performance eyeglass lenses of choice. Everything about them, from the material they are made from, to the design of the prescription edged on them, to the scratch-resistant and blue light protection treatments, are the best available.

Workers today are suffering from the chronic conditions associated with Digital Eye Strain (DES), a condition that OSHA recognizes as a leading cause of workplace stress. When you experience blurry vision, tired eyes, body fatigue, and headaches, these are all issues related to stress on your visual system. These symptoms can slow your work down and affect your productivity, causing additional stress. Believe it or not, the right eyeglasses can relieve these symptoms and help improve your productivity.

Be Safe Driving at Night

Glare from headlights while driving at night is a dangerous distraction. Our pupils have difficulty adjusting quickly from on-coming traffic and back to darkness. These conditions are compounded by heavy traffic, rain, snow, and signage that reflect light.

The right eyeglasses can be an additional safety device in our cars. By adding a premium, anti-reflective treatment to your lenses, we can nearly eliminate glare that will make adjusting to rapidly varying conditions easier and provide you with much improved overall visibility.

Enjoy Your Hobbies

If you’re into precision sports like golf or enjoy hunting and fishing, the right lenses can make all the difference. Similarly, if you’re an artist or enjoy quilting or scrapbooking, you need to see what’s in front of you to pinpoint detail. Musicians need to read music. How many hours do you log playing computer games every week? All of these hobbies and professions can benefit from the right lenses to help relieve eye strain and allow you to see and enjoy your passions.
