Eyeglass Lenses

Discuss with the doctor what you need. There are as many types of lenses are there are visual needs. Do you need to read out of the top of the lens and see distance out of the bottom? Do you want bifocals or progressives? Do you need glasses for computer use? Once you know how you will use the glasses, the doctor can make an appropriate prescription and the optician can help you find the correct style and size for what you need.


With all of the $5 sunglasses in the supermarkets, why spend more money for essentially the same thing? The answer: you get what you pay for. Sunglasses are meant not just to protect your eyes from visible light. Quality sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful UV radiation and help against glare.

Do you have a hard time with headlight glare (especially at night)?

Anti-reflective lenses reduce glare allowing more light to pass through to your eyes. All lens surfaces naturally reflect light and 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.
