Prescription Eyeglasses Services (Lenses and Frames)
While choosing your prescription eyeglasses is a personal choice, the selection process can be challenging without the right guidance. As a leading vision practice, our team strives to make this choice easy. We offer a wide variety of options of lenses and frames, all of which can be customized to suit not only your vision needs, but also your fashion preferences.
Types of Eyeglass Lenses
The right eyeglass lens for you largely depends on function. As a leading vision care practice, we offer a wide variety of lenses, including:
- Single vision to correct one viewing distance (either near, intermediate or distance)
- Bifocal, which is split into two sections (distance vision and near vision) and commonly used to treat presbyopia
- Trifocal, which provides three focal points to help you see at different distances
- Progressive, similar to bifocal lens but provides a continuous gradient lens for more natural vision
Specialized protective coatings are also available to help protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Polarized lenses help protect your eyes from the sun’s UV rays and are ideal for sports and outdoor exercise. Anti-reflective lenses eliminate glare and reflections off the surface of your glasses, and therefore are perfect for outdoor settings and driving. Both polarized and anti-reflective lenses help eliminate your need to squint and reduce eye fatigue, tension and eyestrain. For individuals who prefer to have only one set of eyeglasses for both inside and outdoors, photochromatic lenses are a good option. Photochromatic lenses change color depending on the environment; the lenses are clear indoors and dark outdoors.
Computer glasses are prescription eyewear designed to help you focus at a computer-screen distance, relieving a slew of digital eyestrain symptoms. Depending on your vision needs, your computer eyeglasses may consist of single, bifocal and progressive lenses. Keep in mind that computer glasses are not designed for general use or for driving.
When helping you select your eyeglass lenses, our eye doctor will consider long-term wear, comfort, style, features and function.
Choosing Your Eyeglass Frames
When choosing an eyeglass frame, there are a couple of points you should take into consideration:
- The color of your eyes and your skin tone. Your frames should enhance the color of your eyes and your skin tone.
- The shape of your face. Your frames should contrast your face shape (oval, oblong, square, round, etc.)
- Your face size. Your frame size should be in scale with your face size.
