Vision – Don’t buy eyeglasses blindly!

Visions of Canada operates on an elevated visionary plane. Do you wear glasses? You must – MUST  – visit Visions of Canada.

Make an appointment and sit down with Paul Boyko, Jr. Paul has brought his degrees, licenses and a couple decades of experience across the Ambassador Bridge from Windsor to open a satellite store in Ferndale. Be prepared for an education. Within 30 minutes you will be astounded at how good eyeglasses can be – and ready to pay double or triple what you’ve ever previously paid.

How can it possibly be worth it? One can decide on bifocals or progressive, add tint, choose more scratch-resistance and bump the quality of the lens up one notch. But… glasses are glasses aren’t they?

Glasses are glasses like the cheapest Chevy and costliest Mercedes are both cars. The difference is in the detail, quality of engineering and vision. One can have been buying glasses for the last ten, twenty or forty years, thankful for the slight improvements in technology but totally unaware of the calibrations and options now available; calibrations and options that can make the difference in your vision experience akin to what you can see on a cloudy midnight compared to a sunny day at noon.

Visions of Canada provides a high-end difference in one’s ability to see. It’s done in two ways. First, they delve deeply into one’s vision history and specific needs (as an architect, golfer or whatever). It will be like a doctor’s exam, even if you already have a fresh prescription from your ophthalmologist. Secondly, they utilize lenses made from optics manufacturers that are the undisputed best of the best. Outfits like Carl Zeiss and Rodenstock. Visions of Canada can utilize and import from these manufacturers because they’re registered with a special license from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) which oversees medical devices, including those of the eyeglass industry.

Precision manufacturing makes an enormous difference. One example: the spherical and cylindrical columns in eyeglass prescriptions contain lens powers in diopters (a unit of measurement). The American manufacturing norm is to grind a lens to a tolerance in quarters; the elite manufacturers grind to tolerances of 1/100. So, for example, if a portion of your prescription reads .75 and 1.75, that’s exactly what you will get with a lens manufactured here in the United States. Visions of Canada can show you that they had the same script ground to tolerances of .81 and 1.66 (advanced computer technology enables considering the script as a whole). The difference in clarity and detail is enormous.

That’s a mere portion of how vision can be improved by utilizing a top of the line precision manufacturer. It’s not a matter of “a little better” on one aspect of the eyeglass; it’s improved graduations of difference designed to perfect vision throughout the entire lens. When you want to look up, down or to the side, up close or far in the distance –consider focal point, axis, meridians, and refraction. Mr. Boyko and his associate, Ryan Commet, can talk at length about technical matters and their impact on sight. More importantly, they can demonstrate how your vision can be enormously improved.

Mr. Commet, an optician who used to work for one of the bigger chain retailers, raves about now putting the full extent of optical knowledge and technology together, “I love it here. I learn something every day working with Paul.”

Mr. Boyko will happily tell you that his glasses aren’t really needed by 90 per cent of the population. He specializes in the 10 per cent with acute eye problems or specific needs. Not you? Don’t be sure – has your vision provider ever told you that glasses can be improved by anything but going up one level in quality? The reason is “minimum standards,” combined with what the bean counters in the insurance industry, have deemed the “reasonable price” that will be covered.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) regulate the standards by which eyeglasses are made. To assure that these standards are met, all manufacturers licensed to make eyeglasses are also required to be members of the National Optical Association, which further enforces the standards. What this means is that eyeglasses will be resistant to impact and scratching as well as conform to the prescription as written; it doesn’t mean American manufacturers must make the absolute best eyeglasses or that insurance should cover the cost.

Minimum standards and “reasonable price” don’t cover unique needs either. Consider the ability to read blueprints or fine print, think about sports. Visions of Canada has become a pioneer in lenses provided specifically for the sport of golf. Golfers want to be able to see the ball on the ground along with differences in terrain, grass and slope over a distance; they want a “sphere of vision.” Visions of Canada specializes in creative crafting for that and other needs, backed up by precision manufacturing utilizing the absolute latest of technological advancement.

Visions of Canada has an international clientele. It’s come to Ferndale to expand its U.S. market and give easier access to its customers. The challenge? Very, very few have any idea of how good eyeglasses can be.

The first eyeglasses actually worn on the bridge of the nose were produced by Italian craftsmen in the late 13th century (they had solid glass lenses, similar to today’s magnifying glasses). Since then there have been improvements, Visions of Canada can demonstrate the full extent of how much is now available.

Lisa Rehe is the office manager; she’s a lifelong resident of Ferndale. Stop in or give her a call – Lisa can set you up for an eye-opener. As Paul says, “Don’t buy eyeglasses blindly.”
