I often get calls and emails from people who are experiencing really bad eye problems that their local optician, and on several occasions even their hospital ophthalmomogist hasn’t been able to correct.

Here are a couple of examples where I’ve been able to help using XTRActive Lenses for people with very light sensitive eyes. I’m not an optician, but I do understand lenses and how they work and their benefits,very well. By LISTENING to my customers, I’ve been able to resolve their problems by combining certain lenses with certain coatings that I felt would benefit them even to a life changing extent. on several occasions. Hers are just a few examples.

Joanne, May 2017

Joanne called me one day asking for help. She was pretty desperate as she was suffering from really bad headaches, and her eyes were very painful. She had been off work for 10 weeks as she was unable to look at the computer screen . She was wearing big dark glasses over her own glasses even indoors as she couldn’t stand the light. She was unable to watch TV, use a computer or phone, or even go outside without these big dark glasses covering her own prescription glasses, and suffered the constant headaches. By working out what her exact problems were, and what she needed from her lenses, I was able to suggest a combination of things I felt would help.

For Joanne I recommended and supplied Essilor XTRActive Varifocal lenses with Crizal Prevencia Blue Light protection.

“Hi Catherine,
I’m really pleased with my new lenses. They haven’t quite cured my headaches (which would have been a miracle) but they have definitely made a big difference at work. I’m now able to work full days which I wasn’t managing before as it was just too painful to look at the screen for a full day but these lenses have made computer use much more comfortable. I have also stopped getting pain when scrolling up and down which only started when my headaches started. I’ve also noticed the headache pain across my forehead has greatly reduced which I believe is due to the lenses.
I’ve sent you another pair of my old glasses as I would like new lenses put in them, as I always have two sets of glasses incase I break or lose a set. I want exactly the same as before, thinner lenses,Xtractive transitions with Crizal Prevencia Blue Light  Protection.
Speak to you soon
Thanks again
Joanne”

Hi Catherine,

 
I discovered your site by chance when I was browsing for some help with my glasses situation.
 
The issues I have at present and have not had them addressed by any of the High Street gang and a couple of locals.
I suffer from Meibomian gland dysfunction which is blockage or some other abnormality of the meibomian glands so they don’t secrete enough oil into the tears.
One of the issues associated with MGD is light sensitive eyes, be it sunlight (doesn’t have to be bright) fluorescent lighting of any kind and glare through windows etc.
 
I can’t seem to find a lens that would give me the relief required for both in and outdoors use. The glasses in the pictures I have attached are about the best that I have managed to get so far, the prescription is only 1 year old. I believe they could be bettered with a brown UV tint.
 
Your advice, would be very much appreciated.
 
Kind Regards
James Irvine”

Great Service

I have a condition called MGD which makes my eyes very sensitive to any kind of light, indoor or outdoor. Spoke with Catherine, she proposed reaction lenses with a UV and blue light blocker. I now use these new lenses all the time even for driving as they react when in the car. An excellent service from start to finish, I’m a very happy man.”
