Find the UNITY digital lenses for your lifestyle

By on

At VSP, we recently did a survey to find out what people think is the most important attribute of their eyeglass lenses. The truth is that although most of us tend to focus on finding the most stylish frame, it won’t do you any good without the lenses.

It turns out that those we surveyed wanted to hear more about how digital lenses can be customized for their unique visual needs. Many had no idea that a frame—and how you wear it on your face—can impact how well you see with your new lenses.

That’s why UNITY digital lenses were designed to be tailored to not only your prescription but also the frame you choose, how you wear that frame on your face and other digital measurements that make your vision as precise as possible.

That’s right, we’ve gone high tech with our lenses to help you see in high definition. Technology sure has come a long way for lenses. In fact, the LA Times just wrote an article discussing one of our products created to help fight macular degeneration—UNITY lenses with BluTech. (Read the full article here.)

We want to know what you think

Are customized lenses important to you? Let us know by checking out our interactive lens guide on Facebook. It’s a way for you to find the lenses that best meet your needs. From single-vision lenses to top-of-the-line progressives, you’ll see better with UNITY—guaranteed.

    I have just had cataract surgery. now need glasses to read, needlework, computer and light sensitivity. what do you suggest

    • Tracy T. says:

      Hi Shirley – Your best option would be to talk to your eye doctor. He or she should be able to provide options specific to your needs. Best of luck! -Tracy, VSP

  • I would like the Unity single vision eyewear, but was wondering if I can get those where they adjust to light, I think called transition glasses.. Thanx

  • Rebecca says:

    I’ve never heard of Blue Light before. But I have grandparents on both sides of my family with macular degeneration (wet and dry) so I’m definitely interested in he protective coating for that. I just ordered single vision lenses because I don’t quite need bi-focals yet, but I’m almost there. So for my next pair I will definitely be looking at the progressive vs. zone lenses.

    • David C. says:

      Hi Rebecca, there’s no shame in single-vision lenses! Plus, BluTech blue light protection is available in non-Rx, single vision, and progressive lenses. I have a pair myself that I use at work since I’m at a computer all day. We’re hearing a lot of good reviews of them. -David, VSP

  • Christine Ramsey says:

    I cannot decide which would be better the Progressive or the UNITY with Blutech. My eyes are sensitive to light, especially bright headlights while driving at night, so that may need to be a consideration.

    • David C. says:

      Hi Christine, the best thing to do is talk with your doctor. BluTech lenses can help relax the eyes and are available in a UNITY progressive lens as well. -David, VSP

  • Jozefin Farkas says:

    Computer vision. I work on computer 8 hours a day, plus the private time on the net…

  • Kathy Boring says:

    I think the UNITY progressive with BluTech would be right for my eyes since I get eye strain and blurring after 30 minutes or so.

  • Bonnie says:

    Progressives. Is it possible to get transition lenses with Unity?

    • David C. says:

      Hi Bonnie, it sure is. Just ask your eye doctor for a photochromic (darkening) UNITY lens. UNITY was designed to work with sunsync photochromics but is also available in Transitions. _David, VSP

  • Kathy Boring says:

    I’d like to try out the computer vision lens since I am on the computer so much and get eye strain.

  • Christine says:

    Computer vision lenses. And night driving lens. I wear a contact in one eye and had laser surgery in the other. Now that I’m getting older, my vision needs additional help.

  • Amy Chamberlain says:

    Progressive!!

  • John Gill Sr says:

    Would like to try out computer vision lenses. My bifocals don’t work too well with my computer.

    • David C. says:

      Hi John, talk with your eye doctor about UNITY lenses and see if he or she would recommend a computer vision lens or a progressive that will have some intermediate distance for the computer. -David, VSP

  • S Brown says:

    Disregard my previous question. I found the short form on your Facebook page. I was looking for it within the newsletter.

  • Maggie Wilson says:

    The progressives are just what I need.

  • Kay says:

    Progressive I think.

  • Wayne Dougherty says:

    I’m in my late 40′s, and it is clear that my eye sight is going. I need them.

  • Jeanne Charles says:

    I would dearly love to be able to find lenses that would allow me to have ONE pair that would work perfectly for distance, reading AND that pesky area called my my computer monitor, which really falls into neither category ~ meaning I always have to purchase TWO expensive pairs of glasses. Maybe there will be such a lovely creation by the time I’m ready for new glasses in February, 2014? :-)

    • David C. says:

      Jeanne, there aren’t any of those out yet but they are coming. I would encourage you to chat with your doctor about wanting ONE pair and what your lens options are with UNITY. Currently, UNITY PLxpression with Cascade Technology is our highest-end lens and should help you with your needs. Plus, if you’re a VSP member, you’ll get access to exclusive pricing that can save you up to 50%. -David,VSP

  • Robin Rosenberg says:

    It looks like the progressive lenses I got last year were exactly right for me.

    • David C. says:

      Hi Robin, have you tried UNITY progressive lenses? Talk with your eye doctor at your next appointment about UNITY and learn how you can save up to 50%. -David, VSP

  • Robin Rosenberg says:

    I got digital lenses last year for the first time and I was amazed at how much better my vision became. I can see better than my previous three prescriptions and better than I was told I would ever be able to see again. Thank you for bringing the beauty of the world back to me in sharp definition. It’s like going from old style TV to 1080 megapixel HDTV. I will take the test to see if there is a new style of lens that would beeven better.

    • David C. says:

      Hi Robin, it truly is the most precise Rx you can get. If you wear a progressive and are looking for the next step up in clear vision at any distance, talk with your doctor about UNITY PLxpression with Cascade Technology. We’ve been getting rave reviews of it. -David, VSP

  • John P says:

    I have a strong prescription -9 or so. Does Unity make a high index lense that is thinner. Currently I have Hoya High Index lenses.

    • David C. says:

      Hi John, yes, UNITY does have high index lenses. We go up to about a -12 I believe. Since your prescription is so strong, you may want to try UNITY PLxpression with Cascade Technology. The lens names are a mouthful but they fit in more frames and have an improved cosmetic look. -David, VSP

  • Denny Macina says:

    Outstanding service, love Unity lenses

  • Chris Lee says:

    I wear progressive lenses. Yours sound interesting.

    • David C. says:

      Thanks Chris. Check out the link to the app to learn more about them if you haven’t already. If you have VSP, don’t forget you can save up to 50% on UNITY progressives. Plus there is a six-month satisfaction guarantee. -David, VSP

  • Joan Clary says:

    Do the computer vision lenses meld with the progressive lenses? That would be great when I have to sit it front of the computer for long periods. But I also need the progressive.

    • David C. says:

      Hi Joan, your progressive lenses should help you at any distance, including at the computer. Your eye doctor may have a specific recommendation for your visual correction needs but there are some things you can do to help yourself with UNITY progressive lenses at the computer. Consider getting UNITY lenses with BluTech to help relax and protect your eyes from the harmful light emitted by your computer screen. You’ll also want to make sure you have a UNITY anti-reflective coating to eliminate glare and help keep your vision crisp. Also, if you are in front of a computer all day, remember to take breaks to let your eyes refresh. Every 20 minutes or so take 20 seconds to stare about 20 feet away. This 20-20-20 rule engages your distance vision and helps reduce digital eye strain. I do it myself and it makes a BIG difference at the end of the day. -David from VSP

  • shelley herrmann says:

    Is there a progressive lense that is also good for computer vision?

  • I’m on a fixed income and could sure use progressive lenses!!

    • David C. says:

  • carmelita says:

    Single vision but I’m beginning to notice that my current prescription may need to be bumped up to bifocals.

  • Leslie says:

    I’d like to try Unity progressive lenses. I live in Reno, NV. How do I find a Unity dispensing optometrist?

  • R says:

    I have had progressive lenses but find them hard to use. The focus has what seems a small sweet spot. Any improvements happening here?

    R

    • David C. says:

      Hi R, A lot of people have trouble adapting to progressives. You should ask your eye doctor about UNITY PLxpression with Cascade Technology. We’re noticing that it is outperforming other progressive lenses because more people are adapting to it without much issue. -David, VSP

  • Penny says:

    I use progressive lens in my glasses. Would these be of help with my night vision – as I have difficulty driving at night?

    Thank you.

    • David C. says:

      Hi Penny, If you’re having trouble seeing at a certain distance, I would encourage you to try UNITY progressives. If you’re not completely satisfied, we’ll replace them for you (within six months). You may want to ask your doctor about UNITY PLxpression with Cascade Technology. It’s a long name but has been performing really well with wearers for all distances. -David, VSP

  • Penny says:

    I’m going to get my new glasses tomorrow – How can I get my Eye Doctor to let me try Unity. I wear progressive and have a REALLY hard time see to drive at night. Unity sounds like it would be so much better. Will this add to the cost of my lens?

    • David C. says:

      Penny, just print out the UNITY flier from the app and take it to your doctor. Ask them specifically for the UNITY lenses you want. Based on your other comment, you may want to go with the UNITY PLxpression. Oh, and don’t forget, if you’re a VSP member you can save up to 50% on UNITY lenses compared to other progressives! – David, VSP

  • Cyndi says:

    Performance coatings

  • Jean F says:

    For the way I use glasses, Unity single vision lenses would work best for me.

  • Rich says:

    Why does clicking on “which UNITY lenses are right for you” take me to Facebook? Do I have to go there to find out what lenses are right for me? I’m a Facebooker and I don’t plan to be.

    • David C. says:

      Hi Rich, the application is developed and hosted on Facebook. If you’re not able to access the application without a Facebook account, it is free to sign up. -David, VSP

  • Dee says:

    I have a strong prescription of 6/7. Would my lenses be thinner using UNITY PLxpression? Thanks

    • David C. says:

      Hi Dee, one of the benefits of UNITY PLxpresssion lenses is that they have more natural looking aesthetics in certain strong prescriptions. I’m not sure if you have a high minus or plus Rx, but you should notice it’s less obvious in these lenses. -David, VSP

  • Lisa Knobloch says:

    I work at a computer all day and have bifocals. I seem to have trouble shifting from the page I am reading to the monitor I am working on. By the end of the day I have a headache and blurry vision. I am just wondering if the Unity lenses might be beneficial and help improve my work performance. I am basically editing information on the screen from paper and what I learn over the phone.

    • David C. says:

      Hi Lisa, two tips: First, make sure to take a break every 20 minutes or so and stare about 20 feet away for 20 seconds. This engages your distance vision and helps reduce digital eye strain. Second, you may want to get a UNITY progressive with BluTech in it. The BluTech will help keep your eyes releaxed and the progressive will provide a subtler transition than a lined bi-focal. At your eye appointment, be sure to tell your doctor what you have typed here and that you’d like to try UNITY Progressives. -David, VSP

  • Amanda says:

    How do I find out where to get Unity Lenses?

  • Jane Dority says:

    I would like to try progressive lenses. I wear trivision lenses now.

  • melissa manica says:

    Ive never heard of the brand but after reading i will have to find of more about single vision lens. As it happens i need new glasses

    • David C. says:

      Hi Melissa, be sure to check out the Facebook app for some more information. We even have a printout you can take with you to the eye doctor. -David, VSP

  • Chris says:

    Im happy to hear progressive lenses can be fit in any frame even wrap type sunglasses.

    I think ill have to ask my doc about them.

    Thank you.

    • David C. says:

      Chris, they absolutely can. If you have a really strong prescription, you should ask you doctor about UNITY PLxpression. It’s a lot more accommodating than other progressive lenses with strong prescriptions. -David, VSP

  • Elizabeth says:

    BluTech lenses feel this maybe the best for me. I read that it has a natural pigment found in the iris of the eye, to help filter out high-energy blue light and UVA/UVB radiation. Because my eyes are very sensitive to sun light.

    • David C. says:

      Hi Elizabeth, I have been hearing great things from people who have tried them. If you’re sensitive to sunlight you may want to ask your doctor about the outdoor UNITY with Blutech lenses because they are essentially sunglasses with added protection for harmful blue light. -David, VSP
