Did you know that an aircraft cabin is a low humidity environment which makes the air one breathes feel very dry? For that reason, contact lenses which are comfortable to wear in one’s normal environment on land, often become dry and scratchy after a period of time during a flight. It is advisabl...

A word of warning: Colour matching of a spectacle lens tint is not an exact science. Some lens polymers will absorb tint colours better than other lens polymers. To attempt to ensure consistent tinting results, lens dyes need to be from the same manufacturer and from the same batch, which is a ne...

On a lighter note: Why would you do that??
Why would you put on new glasses and then shake your head violently to see if they are going to fall off during a normal day? It’s like going to the dentist to repair your tooth and then biting down hard on an olive pip to see if the repaired tooth is re...

What really differentiates one progressive spectacle lens design from another? What makes one lens category perform better than another? The answer is in the Lens Map. That is the internal hidden engine of the lens. Just as a well-engineered car engine improves a car’s performance, so does a well...

Did you know that it is not unusual for your one eye to see a little clearer than your other eye, even with the most accurate prescription glasses or contact lenses? This is no more unusual than your one arm being stronger than your other arm, or your one leg being more dominant than your other leg.

Did you know? There are two simple ways to help your child maintain good vision:
1. Maximize your child’s daily outdoor play time.
2. Reduce your child’s non-school screen time.

“Why do I need to adjust to my glasses? My eyesight should be perfect! The optometrist must have made a mistake.” This statement indicates a lack of understanding of the vision system.
Vision is one of our primary senses. It is how we perceive or see the world through our eyes. Our awareness of t...

Do your feel eyestrain even with your new glasses? Does it seem difficult to concentrate when working? It might be that your eyes are not working efficiently with each other. It’s similar to the wheels of your car being out of alignment. Your car drives forward but it is not easy to steer. To sol...

Michael is extremely patient and methodical. I wanted bifocal contact lenses. He spent a generous amount of his time making sure I understood what to expect from these lenses. He then gave me free trial lenses to use for a few days before spending any money . An “old school” kind of guy! He wants you to be happy. The money comes after. I would give michael a 5*

Highly recommended for professional, efficient and friendly service. Convenient location. Lovely selection of frames. 10/10. Michael has been my optometrist for over a decade, managing my rather complicated vision situation and seemlessly moving me from normal specs to multi-focals when the time came. It’s always a pleasure to visit – from the thorough eye test to speedy turnaround time to care taken to make sure the new specs fit well. They even open early so it’s possible to get the whole appointment done before work.

Always a joy coming to Saben Spectacle Co. It feels like visiting family and they listen to your needs and pay attention to you as a person, not just another client. Will recommend to anyone. Love my glasses!

My Approach

Vision is not simply about seeing clearly with each eye. It is much more than that. It's about seeing comfortably. It's about your optometrist fine tuning your spectacle or contact lens prescription, so that you can adapt to the visual change as easily as possible. It's about understanding that the modern work environment involves complex visual tasks. It's not just reading a document on the desk in front of you. It's looking at multiple computer screens, laptop and cellphone screens in the same space. Your vision correction needs to work for you even with all of this. Only an optometrist with years of experience and a deep understanding of human interaction with our environment, and a thorough knowledge of corrective lens technology will result in you achieving clear comfortable vision.
