Our Corrective Lenses Improve Vision

A regular eye checkup serves more than merely detecting symptoms, as it provides vital optical information in order to prescribe the right corrective lenses to improve your vision. SWISSCOAT Vision Center also carry many high-quality frames for the elderly.

Optometrists will prescribe glasses for elders who are in need, as well as those who need to renew the power for sight rectification, whereby a relative fee will also be deducted. It is also recommended for the elderly to wear SWISSCOAT lenses with UV and high energy blue light blocking functions.

Exposure to UV rays increases the risk of cataract and other eye disorders, and can also cause accelerated ageing in the skin and around the eyes. Signs of accelerated ageing in skin include dull skin, freckles, and wrinkly skin.
