People just want to know.. do HD lenses work? – the short answer is YES!

How do HD lenses work?
HD lenses in eyeglasses help patients see better through the reduction of unwanted Distortions, Glares and Halos, called aberrations. Figure #1 shows the different types of distortions that are NOT corrected with traditional lenses.  This happens because high definition eyeglass lenses are a huge technological leap in lens engineering, a process that has been mostly unchanged for almost 100 years!
