The Ultimate Guide To The Eyezen Family

Eyezen™ lenses are becoming more and more popular with patients across the board. The Eyezen family was originally released for young presbyope patients that needed an additional boost but the line has since expanded and they now have options available for almost everyone that wears a single vision lens! 

As someone who has never had an eye exam until I began my career in the optical field, I can only speak from experience on the technology used within the Eyezen lenses. 

Having never worn glasses before, I had no idea what to expect. I put on my first pair of regular single vision lenses and instantly felt dizzy. I will tell you, driving was scary because every time I checked the rear or side mirrors, it felt like I was swimming.

I know, it takes some getting used to, and eventually I did, but the day that I was handed a voucher to try the new Eyezen Start lenses, the world within my eyes completely changed.

In this blog, I am going to talk to you about the Eyezen™ family of lenses, whom they are geared for, and the benefits of each lens available.
