High-Definition Eyeglasses are designed to provide sharper vision in all conditions and reduce glare for nighttime driving.
Types of High-Definition Lenses
According to All About Vision, the most popular type of high-definition eyeglass lenses are called free-form and Wavefront lenses. The term “free-form” refers to an advanced manufacturing process that reduces higher-order aberrations such as spherical aberration that occur in eyeglass lenses created with traditional eyeglass lens manufacturing tools and processes. Free-form technology can surface lenses in power increments of 0.01 diopter (D), compared with 0.125 to 0.25 D increments of conventional eyeglass lens tooling.
Wave-Front lenses are created with the help of the same sophisticated technology used to measure the optics of the eye prior to custom, wavefront-guided LASIK eye surgery: A computerized instrument projects uniform light waves into the eye, which reflect off the retina, and the returning “wavefront” of light is analyzed to evaluate all optical imperfections — not just refractive errors, but higher-order aberrations as well.
5 Benefits of High-Definition Eyeglasses
Here are some of the benefits of wearing high-definition glasses:
- Sharper vision
- Reduced aberrations
- Customized to your eyes
- Improved nighttime vision
- Improves vision in all lighting conditions
Are you a candidate for HD eyeglasses?
Virtually, anyone can wear HD eyeglasses. Individuals with higher eyeglass prescriptions may notice greater benefits from wearing HD glasses.
