“One of my long-time patients was recently in to update his glasses.  He and his wife have been coming to our office for years because, even though we are not direct providers for their vision plan, they believe they receive both the best service and the best value with Dr. Tavel. He had his last eye examination with his ophthalmologist in September of last year but hadn’t chosen to fill the prescription until now because he was told there was very little change in his prescription and he likely wouldn’t even notice a difference.  He decided to inquire about new glasses, though, because he thought it was time for a new look.  In talking about his needs and wants for the new glasses, he shared that his eyes were getting very tired with extended periods of close-detailed work, but he attributed that just to “old age” because his prescription hadn’t changed.

I recommended filling the prescription with the new Kodak Unique progressive lenses in a Trivex material.  The Unique is a state-of-the-art digitally surfaced progressive that provides a customized lens for the patient’s Rx and frame selection, optimizing the precision of the prescription.  It enhances visual clarity over standard progressive lenses very much like BluRay improves the viewing experience of our favorite movies over the standard DVD.  The Trivex material would provide the sharpest possible optics as well as be light weight for comfort for this patient’s vision needs.  Adding the Kodak Clean’n’Clear anti-reflective coating helps to eliminate annoying glare and reflections and the Instashades treatment for optimal comfort both indoors and out would provide the best technology in lenses for his lifestyle.  He selected one of our TuraFlex frames, a “bendable” titanium style, for both durability and comfort with minimal weight.  I knew these recommendations would make an excellent pair of glasses for him, but I was pleased by how truly delighted he was when he received the new eyewear.  He said, ‘If I had known how much difference this new technology could make, I would have gotten new glasses months ago.  I’m just sorry I waited!'”

See what Dr. Tavel technology can do for your next pair of glasses and see better today!
