Vista Mesh

Now in its 10th year of UK supply Vista-Mesh is a unique product, a blend of two technologies combining almost by accident as an ophthalmic spectacle lens with the unique ability to act as a shield against EMR travelling via the human visual system. Little is understood as to actually why Vista-Mesh works, yet it has proven to give significant and welcome relief to those with more sensitive systems whose lives are affected by a number of electronic created afflictions. Sadly that estimated 1% of the population seriously affected by EMS would seem to be rapidly escalating across all ages; most common those resulting as migraines causing considerable distress.

Some of the benefits of Vista Mesh:

  • Aligns scattered light reflections
  • Dampens flicker
  • Sharpens contrast
  • Reduced eye strain
  • Deflects EMI radiations
  • Reduces visual stress
  • Helps with migraines

Vista mesh lenses are used for computer uses, night driving, in office environment, general reading and writing.

Vista Mesh Lenses Ease Patient's Migraines

Elliot Bateman and Sarah Ashwell

A Welsh optometrist has been praised by a patient for turning her life around after a specialised lens dispense.

Sarah Ashwell had been struggling with headaches and migraines due to spending many hours at a computer screen for her office job in Caerphilly. She had an eye examination with Elliot Bateman of Bateman Opticians in Blackwood, who prescribed Vista Mesh lenses as her vision had not changed. Within two weeks, Ashwells migraines and other symptoms had dramatically improved and the lenses had reduced the amount of glare when she watched television.

Bateman said: The beauty of Vista Mesh glasses is that they dont look any different to any other glasses, but the very fine mesh within the lens has a tremendous ability to ease visual stress for many people. Many people are finding they are beneficial not just for migraine and headaches, but also for glare at night when driving.
