Clarification

Do you have difficulty seeing nearby objects clearly, even though you can see objects far away with no problem? Do you have to squint or do your eyes get tired when reading? Does it get so bad at times that it gives you a headache?
This is completely normal. Your eyes are working continuously to see everything clearly, but they have to work incredibly hard to do so. In medical terms, we call this long-sightedness. You may also hear a doctor or eye doctor refer to it as hyperopia

The solution?
You need single vision glasses, also referred to as reading glasses. These reading glasses will contain plus strength prescription lenses. See below to read all about the different types of single vision lenses.

Would you also like the best possible protection for your eyes against the harmful effects of blue light emitted by all sorts of digital screens and the sun? Then select an Orgalit (Premium) lens with the 'care' feature.
Do you also suffer from night-blindness? Choose the Orgalit (Premium) Formula Drive lens.

Older than 40?

It is quite possible that you won’t experience these symptoms until you are older, around the age of 40. The lenses in our eyes thicken and lose their elasticity as we age. Our eyes also have a harder time to adjust from seeing far away to seeing close up. This is a completely normal ailment as we age... Do you sometimes have to extend your arms all the way to read the newspaper? Do your arms seem too short?  If so, this is called presbyopia.

Orgalit® Premium

These lenses are known for their precise image quality all the way to the edge or periphery of the lens. This feature definitely adds value to these lenses for the dynamic glasses wearer. 

These lenses are made using freeform cutting technology, which guarantees natural sight (through optimization based on the position of the lenses on the face) and an identical field of vision for both eyes (regardless of different strengths and thanks to digital optimization).
We are also able to create a highly tailored lens by considering the individual parameters, such as pupil distance, vertex and curvature of the frames.

Therefore, these lenses belong to the ‘gold’ category and they provide premium comfort

Orgalit® AS

They provide optimum vision up to the periphery or edge, just like the Orgalit® Premium lenses. However, they do not consider any individual optimization parameters. We do consider those parameters with the Orgalit® Premium lens, which provides a more comfortable lens.

These lenses belong to the ‘silver’ category and provide super comfort. 

Orgalit® - Optolux®

Orgalit® lenses form the basis in the world of single-vision plastic – brand name products. Optolux® lenses are the only single-vision lenses that are still available in mineral or glass.

These lenses belong to the ‘bronze’ category and provide standard comfort

Care

optoVision care products block up to 420 nm of harmful blue UV light in the lens itself. Just like the Formula Drive lenses, the material (plastic) of the lens itself contains a UV filter.

This lens is available for just about any type of single-vision or multifocal prescription. Anti-reflective coating can also be added.

We recommend the Formula Drive lens for people who also suffer from night-blindness. The lens is made of the same material and specific coatings have been added to enhance contrast and improve color vision. For optimum vision for those who suffer from night-blindness. 

Formula Drive

The human eye is highly sensitive to glare, particularly in traffic where the lighting conditions frequently change. The lights from oncoming cars cause us ‘momentary blindness’. During that state of blindness, millions of rods and cones in our retinas are overexposed. That blindness reduces our concentration, which significantly slows down our reaction time.  Besides momentary blindness, nyctalopia or night-blindness is also a danger to you and to traffic safety.

Formula Drive overcomes this night-blindness and guarantees you better safety and more driving pleasure. 

The Formula Drive lens is a symbiosis or correlation of three intrinsic parameters: 

  • The material (plastic) of the lens contains a UV filter. This filter blocks up to 420 nm of harmful blue UV light. 
  • On the front, we use the i-Protection blue GT (anti-glare technology). The i-Protection blue reflects the blue light and enhances contrast and it greatly improves color vision
  • On the back we use low-flex-coating. This coating prevents light rays entering from the side (due to glare) so that they do not reach our eyes. 
  • Formula Drive is available for just about every single-vision or progressive lens design.

This lens is also a great solution for people with cataracts, people who are sensitive to light (after surgery) and others. The lens is made of the same materials as the care lenses. The difference is the coating. We use iProtection blue Glare technology for Formula Drive, which enhances contrast and improves color vision.
