How do I get a prescription for my glasses?
To get a prescription for glasses, you need to make an appointment with our optometrist, Dr. Ramirez. Once you have the prescription, you will be able to select the frame that will give you the look you are striving for.
Why get glasses instead of contacts?
Glasses may be the preferred choice to contact lenses for a variety of reasons. Firstly, they are easier to clean than contact lenses. They are also easier to wear since you don't have to stick your finger into your eyes to wear them, thus avoiding the possibility of eye infections. Glasses are also more cost-effective.
What are progressive lenses?
Progressive lenses are lenses that have a smooth transition between different strengths. They correct more than one vision issue, such as reading and distance. The area you use for optimal vision is called the sweet spot.
Are transitional lenses a good idea?
Transitional lenses change color depending on the amount of light in the environment. They are a very good idea. They take the place of both traditional glasses and sunglasses. They save the cost of having to purchase two pairs of glasses. The only downside is that they take some time to transition back to clear when you go indoors.
Can I get prescription sunglasses?
Almost any prescription can be turned into sunglasses. You can also get prescription lenses put into most sunglasses that you already have and love.
What are blue light lenses?
Blue light lenses are special filters that are designed to block the blue light that comes from computer screens. They can be added to most prescription glasses.
What should I consider when choosing my frames?
When you are selecting your frames you need to consider the amount that you are comfortable spending. The color that works best with your personal coloring and a shape that complements the shape of your face. Our staff will be happy to make suggestions using our years of experience with frames.
