Eagle™ Lenses utilize the most advanced technology available today.
This includes both software and hardware that works in tandem to produce a superior lens. Advanced calculation algorithms make it possible to design a customized lens solution. Specialized machinery allows us to fabricate these lenses within very exacting standards, giving you the best vision possible.
Similar to a television, your eyewear has ‘standard’ and ‘high definition’ options as well.
The standard lenses have been commonplace for decades, while newer high-definition lenses are just now becoming more accessible.
Standard lenses were designed to give you your exact prescription at a single point on the lens - called the ‘optical center’. Usually this is when you’re looking straight ahead, eyes forward. The further your eyes get away from this center point, however, the more incorrect your prescription becomes. Eventually it gets bad enough that you can’t see, so you have to turn your head instead of just moving your eyes.
High definition lenses, on the other hand, are able to use advanced calculation technology to create a lens that is totally optimized for your prescription, no matter which way you look out of the lens. By combining this calculation technology with digitally controlled diamond-tipped cutting machines, lenses can be produced with pinpoint accuracy. This is how you can get the best vision possible - the vision you deserve.
When you have a really high prescription,
you can sometimes be out of luck when it come to lenses.
This becomes especially true if you ever wanted to order online, as a lot of sites only have certain prescription ranges that they will deal with. Eagle™ Lenses, however, are specially designed to be able to handle extremely high prescriptions. Not only can we make them, we can actually make them look good. There’s no reason you can’t have the look you want just because you have a high prescription. We can even think out the edges of your lenses to make them even thinner, giving you even more choice in your eyewear.
One, or two? Better, or worse? These are familiar questions to anyone having an eye exam.
But when you finally get done and get your prescription, there’s something that this exam doesn’t account for - your frame.
Just like shopping for a shirt, the exam is only going to give you a ‘pretty close’ measurement - like a small, medium, or large. This is because the phoropter (the thing they put over your face, like the one over there to the right) doesn’t take into account the different angles and distances that are involved.
When you get a Tailored Prescription, we take into account the angles of the frames that you choose. Going back to our shirt example - sure, the old way will give you a shirt that fits “good enough” or “okay”, but by taking all of the measurements you are able to get that “perfect fit”. This also means that, if you have a few different frames, your Tailored Prescription between them may all be different. This is to account for the way that you wear each individual frame, making this truly a unique fit just for you.
Eyeglasses all started with glass lenses, going hundreds of years and only adding plastic and other materials within the past 40 years.
When it comes to optical quality, glass is the standard - just look at camera lenses, television screens, phone screen, or any number of other things. Glass also offers the best scratch protection out of any material, making it extremely well suited as a pair of sunglasses you wear to the beach.
Eagle™ Lenses are the only digital lenses to be offered in glass as well as other, more common lens materials. This sets Eagle™ Lenses a step in quality above other lenses on the market. As an ultra-premium product, you can’t get any higher than digital glass lenses, as they truly give you the best visual experience possible.
As technology improves, we gain more
and more control over the nature of optics.
When we made a lens in the old days, we typically only processed the back of it. The front was a pre-molded curve. Based on your prescription, we’d just pick the closest curve we happened to have. Unfortunately, this was only ever ‘close enough’, as the curve would never be the exact right one for your prescription. With the latest lens technology, we employ lenses with complex front surfaces. This means that they don’t have just one curve, but many. We can then compute the exact locations we need to utilize to match your prescription to the ideal curve on the front of the lens. This is referred to as an Eagle™ Camber™ lens, which is the most advanced lens product available today.
