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...

Modern technology, in solving old-world problems often leads to other new-world problems. A ‘glaring’ example of this is with heads-up displays in modern vehicles. Polarised sunglasses, once considered the best sunglasses in the world, often interfere with the virtual image created by most heads-...

The question which contact lens wearers often ask is: “Why should I replace my disposable contact lenses before they become uncomfortable?” That’s similar to only brushing your teeth once you have a sore tooth. By the time your body tells you that you need to take action, it’s often too late. Dis...

It's not easy to acknowledge that your eyesight is going, but I had the best experience getting my eyes tested and first pair of spectacles here. Both Michael and Bonnie acknowledged my need to both look good and see well, and helped me choose the right frame. I now love my glasses, wear them proudly, and am happy to be able to read again. Their service is outstanding and I would recommend them without reservation.

This review is a few weeks overdue. I am known for my 'complicated' eyes and as someone who's had the same optom for more than 10 years, I was rather skeptical when I first met with Michael and Lucille. To be perfectly honest, I didn't think that Michael would be able to help me. I've seen sooo many eye doctors - too many - in my time and as far as I was concerned, I only trusted one whom I couldn't get to at the time. Well, it's been a few weeks since my appointment with Michael and I am very happy - I can finally see again! This man knows his stuff! He is professional and has the patience of a saint. Both he and Lucille are very welcoming and clearly make a good team.The Saben Spectacle Co. is also, surprisingly, easy on one's pocket. Thank you very much Michael and Lucille for the excellent service and a positive experience.

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.
