Design, material, and treatments are the three components that make up a pair of prescription lenses. Therefore, it is essential to select the right combination of these elements for your particular visual needs and consult your eye care professional.
Our knowledgeable optical staff will consider long-term wearing comfort, style, features, and function when suggesting a new pair of eyeglasses. As a result, the eyeglasses become as unique as the person taking them home. Jason, Ashley, and Christine take much pride in helping patients find their new favorite frames.
Selecting the right eyeglass lens depends largely on its function. We are happy to help you find what best suits your needs, from single vision lenses to progressive polycarbonate lenses. Regardless of your situation, your eye care provider can help determine what types of lenses will work best for you in terms of comfort, function, and design.
When choosing a frame, the shape and size of the frame should enhance the color of your eyes, complement your skin tone and play up the best features of your face shape.
Most people need more than one pair of glasses, one for everyday wear and another for outdoor activities. In addition, having different style frames for various activities and moods makes wearing glasses more fun.
With the wide variety of lens options available, you can customize your “sunnies” (sunglasses) to meet your visual, protection, performance, and comfort needs. Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present even on cloudy days. Quality sunwear provides 100 percent UV protection and can significantly reduce the risk of vision problems caused by sunlight, such as cataracts and retinal damage.
Glare, an issue that makes it difficult to see objects clearly by washing out colors and details, can be combated by polarized lenses. Looking at a scene with polarized lenses, you’ll notice the colors are deeper, richer, and bolder, and details are clearer and more distinct. Polarized lenses also help reduce squinting, which, in turn, reduces eye fatigue, tension, and eyestrain.
Wearers of prescription glasses and sunglasses commonly encounter annoying glare and reflections caused by light bouncing off their lenses. This glare makes it more challenging to see, especially at night. Anti-reflective lenses reduce these reflections allowing more light to pass through to your eyes.
All lens surfaces naturally reflect light. This reflection can prevent between seven to 14 percent of the light needed for optimal vision. Wearing non-AR lenses is like trying to read a book in a dimly lit room. Since AR lenses allow more light to reach your eyes by reducing reflections, it’s like turning up the lights in a room, making it easier to see.
Lenses and frames are an important and personal choice. Jason, Ashley, and Christine have the experience to guide you toward comfortable eyewear selections and work to complement your face. For help, schedule an appointment with your eye care provider, and we’ll be in touch with you promptly.
