Darker evenings? – Essilor Road Pilot lens

Editor Featured News, Homepage Content, Latest News Leave a comment  

Have you struggled with driving vision since the clocks went back?

Darker mornings and evenings mean tougher driving conditions. Reflections and glare from headlights, street lights, traffic lights and shops disturb our eyes creating discomfort and lower visual acuity.

Drage and Tozer are pleased to be dispensing the new Essilor Road Pilot lens with 90% less refelction at night, leading to a decrease in glare discomfort.

Road PilotWe have a number of patients who have just collected their first pairs and have already received this very enthusiastic feedback…..

“I wanted to thank you for my new driving glasses which are a single lens with  antiglare properties. They are absolutely amazing! They have virtually transformed my vision, everything is clearer and sharper as though windows have been cleaned! I even prefer them in the daytime as I notice my eyes don’t feel tired or sore.
I would recommend these lenses to everyone!”

Sudbury Opticians, Drage and Tozer attend National British Contact Lens Clinical Conference in Liverpool! 

Dawn Jordan and Helen Drage are back in practice this week after attending the British Contact Lens clinical conference.

Helen said ‘ it was an exciting weekend especially learning about the future of smart contact lenses ( for drug delivery and glucose measuring) and hearing the results of 3 year trial of myopic management lenses. Amazing to think that results seem to show we can now influence myopia progression in some children!’

Virtual Reality for your real world

More new technology at Drage and Tozer Opticians!

How do you know what the world will look like with your new spectacles?

Drage and Tozer are very excited to have a new Virtual Reality Headset to help patients experience their new spectacle lenses before ordering them!

Nautilus HeadsetDispensing Optician Andrea Hunt said ‘ It has always been difficult to explain to patients the effects or benefits of different lenses and coatings, now, using the Nautilus headset they can experience it for themselves.

She continued, ‘Patients can see with a 360 view the impact of a certain lens on their day to day living. Increasingly we recommend a lens for a certain hobby or VDU use and with Nautius we can easily show the patient how the lens works.

The unit is lightweight and held by the patient. There are a number of real world simulations presented that allows them to see what near and distance vision is like through chosen lens designs’

Call in to practice and let us show you the Nautilus headset! or telephone 01787 310090 for an appointment with one of our dispensing opticians
