Your Initial Examination
The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends annual eye exams for patients who already need vision correction, and exams every two years for patients who have not been diagnosed with ocular conditions. During your eye examination, we will not only assess your vision correction needs, but also conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your ocular health to check for various eye conditions.
Even if you wear contact lenses, we recommend considering a pair of eyeglasses for the days when your eyes need rest.
Choosing Your Frames and Lenses
Following your vision exam, we will assist you in choosing a pair of frames from our extensive selection. We recommend that you try on a wide range of frames to determine which style best complements your facial features. Our caring team will patiently work with you to select frames to match your personality and lifestyle factors.
In addition to high-end frames, we offer:
- Blue Light Filter which reduce Blue Light exposure, combat digital eye strain, enhance visual performance and block UV Light.
- Anti-Reflective lenses to help in all low light condition, especially while driving at night.
- Titanium frames that are lighter, stronger, and apply less weight to the bridge of your nose.
- Refraction lenses with higher index, which can provide powerful correction in a thinner, lighter lens, sometimes up to 30% thinner.
- Aspheric lenses that are flatter and give your eyes a more natural appearance.
Protect Your Eyes with Prescription Sunglasses
In addition to eyeglasses and contact lenses, we offer a wide selection of prescription sunglasses. If you wear corrective eyewear or contact lenses, we strongly recommend choosing a pair of prescription sunglasses during your next visit to our optical store. Many patients who wear eyeglasses do not think they can wear sunglasses. As a result, they are constantly shielding their eyes from the sun or squinting. Polarization in sun wear is highly recommended and will help with the annoying glare and squinting that can cause wrinkles. Prescription sunglasses provide protection from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. In addition to their practical benefits, prescription sunglasses come in a variety of high-end styles.
Even if you wear contact lenses, we recommend being fitted for prescription sunglasses. Certain outdoor activities such as swimming or visiting the beach can place you at risk of debris or unsanitary water contacting your eyes, which can cause serious damage if you wear contact lenses. Prescription sunglasses can help you stay comfortable outdoors and reduce the risk of complications.
According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 30 million Americans wear contact lenses. Their versatility makes them a popular choice for patients who prefer non-surgical vision correction. Many patients prefer Bladeless LASIK or Relex Lens exchange surgery to decrease or eliminate their need for glasses. Our team can help you choose the contact lenses that best fit your needs and lifestyle, and assist you with fitting. We can also teach you proper cleaning and care techniques. Even if you wear contact lenses, we recommend considering a pair of eyeglasses for the days when your eyes need rest.
