At Ellis & Killpartrick we understand the correct lenses are crucial to good vision and comfortable spectacle wearing. They differ from eye to eye. We will give you comprehensive advice on choosing the best lenses for you and have a wide range of suppliers to meet all requirements. Combine this with the latest measurement technology Ellis & Killpartrick provide a product that meets every individuals needs.
Essilors’ S-Design is Ellis & Killpartrick’s vari-focal of choice. It benefits from two exclusive technologies. Essilor overcomes the lens compromise between fields of vision and swim effect. Wearers benefit from ultimate vision due to three revolutionary advances in optics and the knowledge of wearer physiology.
Nanoptix entirely reengineers the fundamental structure of both lenses to reduce the “swim” effect. As both base curve and power impact the beam deviation, their combination is optimised for each element. Swim effect is reduced by up to 90%.
Synchroneyes takes into account the physiological differences between the two eyes to ensure maximised fields of vision. Each lens optimisation integrates the differences between the right and left prescription as well as the distance between pupils and Binocular fields of vision are up to 50% wider.
The exclusive 4D technology takes the dominant eye into account in the lens calculations to ensure instant visual reaction for the wearer. All Varilux S Series are manufactured using S Digital Surfacing, which ensures a much more accurate blocking of the lens.
There are many anti reflective coatings on the market the at Ellis & Killpartrick we recommend Essilor Crizal Forte UV, which is the first clear lens on the market to maximize protection against UV from the front AND back surface of the lens, while ensuring the maximum clarity of vision.
Latest research into AMD suggests the most damaging light reaching the back of the eye is not UV but VISIBLE violet light. This new technology enables lenses to block a significant proportion of this short wavelength high energy light which scientists believe may help to slow the aging process leading to Age related Macular Degeneration (AMD) in the same way that sun block and sun creams protect our skin.
