Get the best vision

Taking care of your eyes means doing what it takes to achieve perfect vision. SEIKO lenses are tailored to each individual’s specific needs in order to ensure edge-to-edge clarity. When it comes to your eyesight, the only way to look is forward.

Do I need progressives?

Having difficulties reading text messages, food labels, or other fine print? It is not uncommon that most people over the age of 45 suffer from presbyopia or "old eye". In most cases, visiting your optician for a simple eye test will lead to a solution.

Using progressive lenses allows you to see clearly at any distance with only one pair of glasses. These lenses create a gradual transition from seeing far away to mid-distance to close-up, and eliminate the visible lines usually found in bifocal lenses. With this seamless design, no one will realise that they are reading glasses.

Getting used to your new glasses

Once you start wearing your new glasses, it is not unusual to feel overwhelmed by the clarity and crispness of your vision. This may bring some discomfort as you might feel off-balance, but the sensation usually passes after one or two weeks.

Move your eyes – not your head

At first, you may experience dizziness due to moving your eyes instead of your head. It is important to make a conscious effort during this adjustment period in order to get used to the eye movement so that it comes naturally.

Wear them every day

After receiving your new glasses, your eyes will need time to adjust.  Make it a goal to wear them every day for about one to two weeks in order to break them in properly.

Still uncomfortable?

If you still experience discomfort after a couple of weeks, contact your optician. In such cases, your glasses may need an additional adjustment in order to suit your vision or wearing conditions.

Eye tests are key

Going for regular eye tests will not only tell you if you need new spectacles or a prescription, but will also help to keep your eye health in check. Your optician can catch early signs of certain eye conditions before their symptoms are apparent.

Regular tests

Opticians recommend that most people have their eyes checked every two years, depending on age, risk factors and if you currently wear corrective lenses. It is particularly important that older people have annual check-ups in order to help avoid developing certain eye diseases.

More frequent tests

If you have a family history of an eye disease, diabetes or high blood pressure, you should have your eyes checked more frequently. The same applies if you have a visually demanding occupation, previous eye injuries or have had eye surgery.
