Lunettes pour golfeur

Vous êtes un amateur de golf? Vous désirez optimiser votre jeu de golf? Vous investirez dans l’équipement haute-de-gamme mais peut-être vous négligez l’atout la plus importante que vous avez: votre vision. Pourquoi vous n’investissiez pas dans les lunettes pour golfeur? 

Savez-vous qu’il y a des lunettes peuvent être adaptées pour le golf?

Premièrement, il faut passer un examen de la vue avec votre optométriste. Par la suite, l’optométriste ou l’opticien va déterminer quelles lunettes à choisir.

Idéalement, vous devez choisir une monture légère et robuste; une monture qui restera stable sur votre visage et qui ne glissera pas sur votre nez avec chaque mouvement de la tête. Des montures en titane avec une bonne ajustement sur la tête font ce travail.

Après avoir choisi la monture, on procède aux choix des verres ophtalmiques. Souvent les joueurs de golf préfèrent avoir des verres solaires, car la plupart du temps, nous sommes éblouis par le soleil lors du jeu. Il y a différentes teintes disponible selon la situation à optimiser.

Quelle couleur de teinte a choisir?

Les lunettes pour golfeur sont souvent adaptées avec une teinte de couleur soit ambre brun ou mauve selon le besoin de joueurs. La teinte ambre va aider à voir la balle sur le fond du ciel. La teinte mauve va améliorer le contraste de la balle sur le gazon.

Verres Progressifs Personnalisés

Les verres progressives avec des mesures standards ne sont pas la meilleure choix pour les golfeurs. Ces verres n’optimisent pas les zones de vision nécessaires pour le golf. Les distances de travail ne sont pas les mêmes que dans la vie quotidienne. Les yeux devraient suivre le mouvement de la balle très rapidement et passer à une distance à l’autre. Des verres personnalisés seront un option idéal pour le jeu de golf. Celles-ci vont corriger votre vision dans les zones de distances spécifiques pour le jeu de golf.

Prise des mesures personnalisées

La dernière étape c’est la prise des mesures afin d’optimiser votre vision spécifiquement dans le cadre du jeu de golf. On prend en considération le port de tête du porteur, la distance de travail (longueur de club de golf), et la forme de votre tête. Notre appareil de mesure, le iTerminal mobile de ZEISS permet la prise de mesures personnalisés pour le golf. 

Demandez à votre optométriste quelles seront les meilleures solutions adaptés pour vous.

NEW ZEISS i.Terminal mobile for precise fitting measurements

ZEISS i.Terminal mobile

We are very excited to announce that we have purchased the latest technology on the market for lens fitting, the ZEISS i.Terminal mobile. The new ZEISS i.Terminal mobile allows us to take all the fitting parameters in 60 seconds via an IPAD. This allows for even greater customization of lens parameters. All the information is stored in our system and we can take measurements for different frames for the same patient. This is particularly important for fitting progressive lenses or specialty lenses such as anti fatigue lenses or Smart Life Individual Single Vision Lenses.

We are of course taking advantage of this innovative technology to allow for appropriate physical distancing during COVID-19. The old way of taking measurements meant we were a few inches away from a patient’s face. The new i.Terminal mobile allows for greater distanciation and we can even take the images through the plexiglass.

How it works

Once you choose your frame, we adjust the frame on you so it fits comfortably and is well . Next, we place your new frame in the specialized  calibration clip. Finally, you’ll be asked to look at the camera and we will take a series of photos while you are facing the iPad and then while turned to the side. Voilà, we have now taken all the necessary fitting measurements in a matter of  60 seconds!

What exactly are we measuring?

  • Frame data (A, B, DBL)
  • Interpupillary distance (PD)
  • Monocular pupillary distance (mono PD)
  • Fitting height, segment height
  • Back vertex distance (BVD)
  • Pantoscopic angle (PA)
  • Wrap angle
  • Head tilt
  • Vergence compensation


Does this sound complicated to you? That’s ok, that’s why we have professionals taking and interpreting the data so we can make it look easy. After all, don’t you want to get your glasses and have the perfect fit and crisp, clear vision without having to come back to the clinic several times?

Precision is very  important to us at ROCKLAND EYE CLINIC, that’s why we have invested in this latest technology by ZEISS. We  are utilizing ZEISS high precision technology to give you an exceptional experience.

Is blue light bad for your eyes?

Blue light glasses

You might be wondering if blue light is bad for your eyes and whether or not you should buy lenses with a blue filter.  If so, you’re not alone, we are asked questions about blue light on a regular basis. In recent years, we have been hearing a lot about the potential dangers of blue light.

What is blue light?

Blue light is part of the visible spectrum. The visible spectrum is comprised of wavelengths that are visible to the human eye. Wavelengths from 740nm to 400nm make up the visible spectrum. Just outside the visible spectrum is Ultraviolet light, better known as UV light. Blue light is a shorter wavelength of light at 400-470nm and is a higher energy light.

Under normal circumstances, we are all exposed to a certain amount of blue light. With the increase in screen time on computers, tablets and smartphones, however, our amount of exposure to blue light has dramatically increased. It’s important to consider the amount of exposure to blue light in children and adolescents.

Visual Eye Strain

Blue light scatters more as it enters the eye resulting in decreased contrast and contributing to visual eye strain.

I can’t sleep!

You have likely heard that using your phone before bed will give you a harder time falling asleep. This is because blue light affects the circadian rhythm, our sleep and wake cycles. It’s recommended to avoid screens 2-3 hours before bed.

What does the science say?

Many studies have been conducted on the effects of blue light with conflicting results. Some studies have found blue light is harmful to the eyes, stating that blue light can even cause cataracts and macular degeneration. Unfortunately, many of these studies were in fact led by many companies who manufacture and distribute ‘blue filter’ lenses.

We stated earlier that blue light is a higher energy wavelength of light and is found close to UV light. Clinical and scientific evidence demonstrates that UV light is harmful to the eyes so we may consider the possibility that blue light could have similar effects on our eyes. We cannot say with absolute certainty, however that blue light can lead to eye disease. The studies are not conclusive. We shouldn’t therefore market lenses with a blue filter to patients on the premise that these lenses will help avoid certain eye disease.

In our practice, we recommend blue filter lenses to reduce visual eye strain. Lenses with a blue filter can help with visual fatigue associated with increased screen time. It remains an individual decision. I can tell you that I am currently wearing glasses with Zeiss BlueProtect coating as I write this post because I personally find them more comfortable while working on screens.
