What Kind of Prescription Eyeglasses Do I Need?

Making the most of the integration of body and vision such as prism insertions and Essilor progressive lenses, behavioural optometry can dispense prescription glasses with a difference. Using accepted and proven scientific principles of neuroplasticity, the extrapolation to ophthalmic prescribing may actually improve your eyesight.

Essilor progressive prism lens glasses can lead to some very balanced and integrated visual care. But how do you know which kind of lenses you need?

Your optometrist in Melbourne will conduct a thorough eye examination. Not only do we look at individual eyes for eye chart eye chart purposes but their interaction binocularly with body posture, balance and movement. This is because you do more with your eyes than look at one gaze position. We’re interested in the holistic behavioural tendencies of your eyes. These eye patterns are so linked with the rest of the body that they can have an effect on concentration, balance and even emotional processing.

Once we have taken you through a comprehensive eye exam at our Docklands clinic, we will have all the information we need to advise you on the kind of lenses that will help your eyes. We often recommend Essilor glasses and glasses with prism lens.

Why These Optical Eyewear Available in Melbourne Function Differently

The optical eyeglasses you’ll receive from Microprism Vision function according to behavioural optometry, which means they’re intended to improve your eyes’ cooperation with the rest of your body. Behavioural optometry is basically the physical therapy of eye medicine; it seeks to restore, retrain, rehabilitate and repair. Rather than relying purely on medicines and glasses, this kind of approach uses many exercises and muscle techniques to adjust the way patients use their eyes. Not only does this allow for less strained vision but it also often slows or even prevents further deterioration. In the same way an athlete’s leg can be restored to full functionality after major surgery with physical therapy, your eyes can slowly improve with behavioural optometry.

As our practice is based on the discipline of behavioural optometry, we’re interested in the holistic behaviour of the eye. We aim to retrain the eye using the proven scientific theories of neuroplasticity and the modern technological advances in optometry that have produced the prism lens. If you’re ready for an Integrative approach in eye care, book in for an eye test in Docklands with Dr Michael Christian PhD today and get your prescription glasses.

High-quality Eyewear in Melbourne

With many clinics, the best you can hope for is to stop your eyesight’s deterioration. Optometrists will always try to slowly reverse the damage to your eyes using carefully measured prescriptions, but this does not always work. Over the years, you can find yourself demotivated and afraid to visit the optometrist; you don’t want to hear that your prescription has increased, again. You don’t want to acknowledge that your vision has worsened instead of improving. That is understandable; we rely on our eyesight too much to think about gradually losing it.

However, with stylish eyeglasses in Melbourne from Microprism Vision, you can expect to see effective, rehabilitative treatment of your eyes. We employ a multitude of eye exams to determine how your vision is potentially being affected by a multitude of factors, including overall physical health, routine, and more. That way, we can prescribe glasses that perfectly align with your unique circumstances and health conditions.

Thanks to our Quantum Photo Somatics, or QPS, our approach aims for holistic health benefits. We treat your vision with the explicit goal of improving your overall health as a result. That allows us to explore more avenues for treatment than the traditional method of taking the eyes in relative isolation to the rest of the body.

What Our Eyewear in Melbourne Can Do for You

Aside from the typical benefits of a good prescription, our optical glasses in Melbourne also include the benefits of QPS treatment. Here are some of them:

  • With a good prescription, you’ll feel less fatigue on a daily basis. You will be straining your eyes less as experience fewer headaches, which will cause less fatigue.
  • Your reaction times and reflexes often improve alongside your vision. You will notice the difference especially if you are athletic.
  • You’ll experience less stress in your average day thanks to feeling more energetic; you’ll also feel better with fewer headaches.

Already Have Eye Glasses?

We can still offer plenty of help. Many patients still experience deterioration of their eyesight even with regular prescription updates, even if it’s much slower thanks to their glasses. Some typical eyewear doesn’t account for more than the eye itself, and come with all behavioural considerations. It improves the quality of your day-to-day, but it doesn’t address any possible unhealthy muscle habits or relieve strain in quite the same way. This eyewear available from our Melbourne clinic aims to turn that process backwards. Rather than simply stall eyesight deterioration, Microprism™ lenses aim to redirect functional anomalies as much as possible to improve natural unaided vision.

And while seemingly pricier than other options in Melbourne, these eyeglasses can be more economical long-term due to improved unaided vision over time and are an investment in your health. Even so, our optometrist in Melbourne happily work with patients of all ages and conditions.

How We Can Help with Our Unique Eyewear Store in Melbourne

You might find benefit from our prescription eyewear in Melbourne if you:

  • Struggle with using bifocals but need glasses that cater for focusing at different space intervals – Microprism™ Essilor lenses are ideal for this.
  • Would like glasses with an anti-reflective coating for easier driving in the dark – Microprism™ Essilor lenses are balanced and come with a Crizal coating to eliminate all reflections.
  • Have been diagnosed with presbyopia (blurring in near vision) – Essilor glasses are a great choice.
  • Are a child or adult with learning difficulties relating to binocular vision issues – Glasses with a prism lens may help you.
  • Have suffered a brain injury or stroke and have vision issues as a result – A pair of glasses may help retrain your brain and aid your recovery.

Looking for Stylish Eyewear in Melbourne that will Turn Heads?

It’s a common conundrum in eyewear that you have to choose between style and comfort. However, our glasses are designed to perfectly pair a sleek design with an ergonomic focus. Our eyewear in Melbourne – ranging from contacts to blue light glasses to frames – uses our prescribed lenses but is designed for maximum wellbeing.

For example, our prescribed blue light glasses filter out blue light – which can be detrimental to both eye health and concentration – but are also placed in a practical and trendy frame. We also offer a range of children’s prescription glasses that offer the same health benefits and high quality.

When it comes to glasses, it can be tempting to opt for something cheaper on the basis that vision can change. However, this often winds up being more expensive than opting for something more durable. Here at Microprism Vision, we offer products that are custom-built to train your eyes, improving your eye health in the long term. Everything we stock has our seal of approval and will only be sold with your health in mind. That’s what sets us apart from other optometrists in Melbourne and what our customers love about us.

Eyewear FAQs

What types of eyewear are available at Microprism Vision?

At Microprism Vision, we offer a diverse range of eyewear to cater to all preferences and needs, including the latest trends in Melbourne. Our selection includes prescription glasses, sunglasses, and protective eyewear, featuring various frame styles from vintage-inspired to modern minimalist. Our frames are crafted from high-quality materials like titanium, acetate, and flexible polymers for durability and style.

What are the latest eyewear trends in Melbourne?

The current eyewear trends in Melbourne focus on bold frames and eco-friendly materials. Popular styles include oversized round glasses that make a statement and sleek geometric shapes that add a contemporary edge to any outfit. Additionally, there is a growing preference for frames made from sustainable materials, reflecting Melbourne’s commitment to environmental consciousness.

How do I choose the right glasses for my face shape?

Selecting the right glasses for your face shape enhances your overall look and ensures comfort. Here’s a simple guide:

  • Round Faces: Square or rectangular frames create a pleasing contrast.
  • Square Faces: Soften your features with round or oval frames.
  • Oval Faces: You can pull off most frame shapes; angular frames add a trendy touch.
  • Heart-Shaped Faces: Aviator or other styles wider at the bottom balance your face shape.
What should I consider when choosing lenses for my glasses?

Consider your daily activities and vision requirements when selecting lenses:

  • Single Vision Lenses: Ideal for correcting single-field vision issues, either distance or near.
  • Multifocal Lenses: Including bifocals and progressives, these are suitable for those needing correction for multiple vision zones.
  • Lens Coatings: Opt for anti-reflective coatings to minimise glare, crucial for night driving and computer use, and UV coatings to shield your eyes from harmful rays.
Can I get eyewear that protects against screen glare?

Yes, we provide lenses with blue light protection, which are essential for those who spend significant time in front of screens. These lenses help reduce eye strain and discomfort by blocking or filtering out blue light emitted by digital devices.

How often should I have my eyes tested?

We recommend eye exams at least every two years, or more often if suggested by your eye care professional. Regular checks are vital for maintaining optimal vision and eye health, and they aid in early detection of potential issues.

How can I care for my glasses to ensure they last longer?

Proper care extends the life and effectiveness of your glasses. Here are a few tips:

  • Cleaning: Use a microfiber cloth and a specific lens cleaner. Avoid materials like paper towels that can scratch the lenses.
  • Storage: Always store your glasses in a protective case when not in use.
  • Handling: Handle your glasses by the frame to prevent misalignment.

100-Day Microprism Guarantee

Quantum Photo-Somatics is a dynamic process, activating the system to begin rearranging and realigning itself to a state of ease. On average, follow-up consultations resulting in a change of prescription occur on a 6-monthly basis. In most cases this is a decrease of prescription, allowing the system to continue moving forward. Where a prescription has increased, it is an indicator that more support is required at that moment, and will likely come down when conditions change. 

However, if your new lenses aren’t delivering the comfort or improvement you expected within 100 days, we’re here for you. We’ll re-evaluate your eyes and make any adjustments that are required.

In the majority of cases, we find that a brief 15-30 minute consult suffices to determine the issue, and is usually a matter of further integration, or a slight adjustment to the prescription. These consultations are available free of charge within the 100 day warranty period. 

Progress and Support: In some cases, changes occuring as a result of the process may temporarily create some discomfort. Different stages of progress may require varying levels of support in order to reach the desired outcome. 

Consultation Fees: A consultation fee will be charged for consultations extending to an hour or more, given the extensive work involved.

Discounted Lenses: If the outcome of your consultation is a significant decrease of prescription, new lenses will be prescribed at a 30% discount. Lens remakes under warranty are not honored for obvious improvements.

Warranty Lens Remakes: If there’s another significant shift within the next 100 days, we will remake your lenses free of charge. 

As the outcomes of this work are highly individual, the application of this policy will have variability depending on the case, and is continually being adapted as the modality itself evolves.
