Eye Examinations

Although you may not have noticed a deterioration in your vision, or do not wear an optical correction presently, it is important to have a regular full eye examination every two years, as part of an overall health check. An eye examination can detect not only the presence of optical correction and serious ocular diseases (such as Cataract, Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma) but also very early signs of some major systemic conditions, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension and endocrine/neurological disorders.

At Greystones Eye Centre, as part of an eye examination, a permanent image will be taken of the light sensitive layer at the back of the eye (the retina or fundus). This retinal imaging can detect the very early signs of many ocular/systemic diseases that may be missed during normal eye testing. The fundus imaging camera provides an extensive map of the eye, detailing everything from the optic nerve to the pigment layer that lies just beneath the retina. Therefore we can not only document changes at the back of the eye that can occur due to natural ageing, but also changes that occur due to conditions such as diabetes.

Optical Lenses

Greystones Eye Centre prides itself as one of the leaders in dispensing the very latest high-tech optical lenses from suppliers based around the world. We are therefore able to offer lens products to enhance and improve the optical and cosmetic performance even in the case of more complex prescriptions. When dispensing high powered or unusual prescriptions we will only select lenses we would be happy to wear ourselves.

Zeiss, Seiko, Essilor, Nikon, Rodenstock, Hoya and Sola supply our branded products.

These manufacturers are able to take instructions from our calculations to ensure the thinnest, flattest, clearest and most appealing lenses to complement your frame choice. The lenses are made from a variety of different plastics and glass ensuring optimum cosmetic and visual performance.

At Greystones Eye Centre we recommend anti-reflection coatings (including scratch resistant and easy clean layers on plastics lenses) on all the lenses we dispense. These coatings reduce reflective glare, especially noticeable in artificial light and night driving, which causes eye fatigue and visual discomfort. It also reduces unsightly reflections and allows your eyes to be seen more clearly, greatly enhancing the cosmetic appearance of your chosen eyewear.

Tinted lenses, including to prescription, are available in fashionable, light-adapting (photochromic) tints, with or without the latest soft mirror effect. Polarising tinted lenses for driving and use on water and snow are designed to reduce surface glare, thus aiding visual comfort in bright and varying light conditions. The very latest lens technology now incorporates both photochromic and polarising, therefore giving the best of both worlds. A visit to the practice for a demonstration never fails the “wow” test!

Varifocal or Progressive Lenses

Greystones Eye Centre lens of choice is Carl Zeiss. We are committed to fitting the finest products available for the benefit of our customers’ visual comfort. Not all progressive lenses are alike. It is essential that the product be chosen for the purpose for which it is intended, and then carefully fitted to ensure the dynamics of the lenses are fully utilised.

Varifocals are multifocal lenses required because of the natural changes in the focusing ability of your eyes at near.

This condition is called Presbyopia and usually happens, regardless of our distance visual ability.

They are designed to give you the best possible vision at all distances. Varifocals have three main focal areas, which are blended together to allow natural focusing at every distance. This blend allows these lenses to look exactly as a single vision lens, with no visible line/break.

However, not all varifocal lenses are the same. There are differences in design and therefore quality of visual performance.

At Greystones Eye Centre, we dispense only high quality varifocal lenses, manufactured by Zeiss. These lens designs result in minimal peripheral distortion (which is inevitable in all blended lens designs), increased usable vision areas and therefore easy adaptation & maximum comfort. Your ZEISS Progressive lenses will be designed precisely for your prescription, and manufactured up to six times more accurately than ordinary progressives. You’ll enjoy wide, spacious fields of clear vision — up to 50% larger than ordinary progressive lenses.

Please see www.zeiss.com for more information on the varifocal lenses we recommend and dispense.

In addition, we now supply Enhanced Reading Lenses – These are designed to give you increased depth of focus allowing more flexible and comfortable vision when doing long periods of close work such as computer work/ drawing /painting/ playing music.

These lenses are not varifocals, but ensure that you are looking through the correct strength/power when performing near visual tasks at different working distances. In this way, enhanced reading lenses future proof your eyes from weakening prematurely.

Durability is obviously a priority for parents – Greystones Eye Centre provides a wide selection of durable metal, plastic and flexible titanium frames, to ensure that your child gets optimum wear out of their glasses. Children and teens need more specialised frame fittings as their facial features develop – We have the most advanced and latest eye care technology on the market, making sure that your child is receiving the very best in eye care.

Children in particular are extremely sensitive to the sun. Our natural crystalline lens is not fully developed until age 12 so it is essential to have Ultaviolet filters which are available in prescription sun lenses, polarised lenses and most clear hi-index lenses. It is also advisable to have reflection free lenses which have optimal clarity of vision, scratch resistance and reduce the effects of glare from external sources such as computer screens, light sources and headlights.
