New technology gives sharper,

clearer and more comfortable vision Nowadays everybody who needs glasses for reading really should be wearing varifocals. But often we hear the response, “I have tried varifocals before and I couldn’t get on with them”. This really should be a thing of the past as there have been huge advances in the technology to manufacture lenses over the past few years, with the latest being released on the October 1.

The electronic system takes up to four times as many measurements as a ruler and are quick and simple. You choose your frame and wear a calibration frame before two images are taken: one from the front and one sideways. Once these measurements have been taken the process of recommending lenses begins.

The typical problems associated with varifocals occur when they have not been fitted by a qualified dispensing optician and not fitted using the latest technology.

Plenty of opticians still use a ruler and pen to measure for varifocals but this is often done by somebody unqualified. Measurements should be taken using one of the electronic systems that can achieve 0.1mm accuracy.

Most varifocals are not specifically designed for the individual. Hoya lenses (one of the largest and most technologically advanced lens suppliers worldwide) have designed the MyStyle Identifier – a computerised questionnaire you fill out with your dispensing optician. This recommends the best lens for your requirements.

Measurement using VisuReal Technology

The patented binocular harmonisation technology which offers these huge advances in comfort, vision and clarity takes into account the different prescription between both eyes – giving you perfect, effortless focusing with constant stability and an excellent depth of vision. These advances help to reduce symptoms such as tired, burning eyes and headaches – these symptoms are known as asthenopia.

This makes your lenses more enjoyable and comfortable to wear, enabling an easy switch

between distance and near vision, comfortable and relaxed reading, a focused view in all situations and a quick adaptation to any changes in your prescription. The Hoya MyStyle V+ is a premium lens that really does give you the best vision possible.

Nearly everyone has an HD TV, all of us striving for the best image possible yet the first place you need to start is with your vision – why put up with standard definition vision when it can be better?

Different prescriptions between your eyes cause you to look through different parts of your lenses. You don’t get a balanced prescription for both eyes – Hoyalux iD MyStyle V+ is the only lens to correct this.

Every lens is unique to each eye and each person. This means you can achieve the best vision possible, with virtually no distortion or swim and sway in your vision. The new lens and technology were launched on October 1 in Paris and only 10 opticians from the UK were invited to attend. Buchanan Optometrists was one of them – being the winner of the Optician Awards 2013.
