Prescription Lenses

“Dr. Hicks, I can’t see…”
…is what we hear (and help) all day every day. We help by getting to know the patient first by asking some questions.

“Where is the blur? Near or Far?”
“What activities of daily life are you struggling with?”
“Do you work on a computer?”

Collecting this information assists Dr. Hicks with recommending and prescribing lenses that will give each patient a clear view where they see blur. There is almost an infinite number of lens designs, coatings, upgrades, styles. We want to guide to you the lens designs that we believe you will be happiest with. Scroll down to see the difference…

Single Vision Lenses – These lenses will clear vision at one focal point.  Patients under 40 generally require single vision lenses, most for distance.   Single vision can also be calculated for near vision (reading) or computer work (intermediate).  SeePort has acquired an in house optical lab and edger, enabling us to produce same day eyewear for the North Port Community.

Lined Bi-Focal Lenses – These lenses have 2 focal points corrected for the patient.  The top portion is for distance correction and the bottom half of the lens is for near vision.

Progressive Lenses have 3 focal points designed in the lens.  The top is for distance, then as the patient looks down (to read for example) the lens progressively adds in power in order to help the eyes and brain process that smaller print.  

Computer Lenses – Computer lenses are considered specialty lenses, but they are designed like a progressive.  the majority of the lens is configured for the distance between your eyes and your computer screen, making it much more comfortable and clear while working, studying or playing games.  We recommend these specialty lenses for patients who have transitioned into at home work or school in particular.  We also offer a blue light blocking and/or absorbing lens for additional comfort while looking at a screen for long periods of time.
