Read on to learn more about all the considerations when choosing eyeglasses.


Options for Eyeglasses

When choosing new frames for your eyeglasses, there is a multitude of options to consider. Some of these factors include style, color, face shape, brand or designer, and lenses.

Lenses for Your Eyeglasses

Once our optometrists has determined exactly what prescription is needed to address any vision issues you are having, our talented team of optical professionals can help you find the perfect pair of eyeglasses for you. This starts with the lenses. While actual glass lenses are rarely used today favoring plastic for lighter safer wear; there are a number of varieties of plastic lens from which to choose.

All of these plastic lenses correct vision with safety and comfort with the main differences being issues of personal taste. For example, poly-carbonate plastic lenses are more shatter resistant while CR-39 plastic is the most affordable option available. Thus, poly-carbonate is often recommended for pediatric patients, athletes, and others who have jobs or hobbies that make breaking more likely.

Other options include Trivex plastic lenses which are exceptionally light and thin, making them ideal for migraine sufferers and others. Finally, high-index lenses offer eyeglass wearers with the absolute minimum curve-related distortion available in a plastic lens.

In addition to the material of your lenses, there are several additional options available for improving the comfort and vision of your eyeglasses. These include:

  • Anti-glare coating fights eye fatigue to make driving safer
  • Anti-scratch coatings reduce the irritation of scratches on your lenses, extending their life.
  • Photochromic lenses, also known as transitional lenses, these change the darkness of the lens to better match the ambient light.
