Prescription Glasses

Discover the clarity that prescription glasses can offer with our custom fitting services. It all begins with an eye exam that allows us to accurately assess your vision needs and identify the optimal prescription for your eyes.

We'll also consider your lifestyle and style preferences, offering single-vision, bifocals, progressives, and even computer glasses with blue light filters.

Preventing Digital Eye Strain with Computer Glasses & Blue Light Filters

In today's digitally driven world, prolonged screen time has become a norm, leading to increased digital eye strain or computer vision syndrome. Symptoms such as eye discomfort, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, and neck and shoulder pain can significantly impact your daily life. Luckily, computer glasses and blue light filters can reduce this discomfort.

These glasses work by decreasing glare, increasing contrast, and minimizing the blue light that reaches your eyes. This allows you to enjoy clear and comfortable vision and a good night's sleep due to reduced exposure to blue light from screens, which is known to interfere with sleep patterns.

Kids' Glasses

Did you know that as many as 20% of school-age children need some kind of vision correction?

Unfortunately, not all kids will agree to wear glasses. Some think glasses aren't "cool," while others live an active life that isn't always conducive to wearing glasses. For these and other reasons, our eye care team encourages parents to bring their children in to choose their frames.

Our optical offers diverse kids' glasses, including Nike and Junior Oakley, specially designed with durability, comfort, and style in mind. We'll help you and your child find the right frames to help them look great and see clearly and comfortably every day.

Visit any of our practices and let your child express themselves with frames that are as fun and resilient as they are!

Questions About Sunglasses

What is ultraviolet light?
Ultraviolet light has a shorter wavelength than visible light and therefore has more energy. UV can be divided into three groups according to wavelength, UV, UVB, and UVC. UVA has been shown to penetrate the lower layers of skin, and is associated with aging. UVB can cause keratitis, and is associated with cataracts. UVC is the shortest wavelength and is almost entirely blocked by the upper atmosphere. Sunglasses, which protect against these three types of UV light are essential equipment.

What is polarization in sunglasses?
When a lens is polarized, it blocks scattered wavelengths of light, reducing and absorbing multiple reflections from other surfaces by canceling light that vibrates in one plane. Polarized lenses are very useful for activities on the water such as boating and fishing.

If polarization is so great, why aren't all sunglasses polarized?
Because polarized lenses may make it impossible to see sheets of water or ice, they are not the ideal choice for driving under wet or icy conditions, or some skiing activities.

What is infrared light?
Infrared light from the sun is experienced on the earth in the form of heat. Quality sunglasses protect your eyes from the fatiguing and drying effects of infrared radiation.

Why does blue light affect vision?
Blue light is the shortest visible wavelength, and because of this, it is easily scattered and reflected. By wearing quality sunglasses, which absorb and block blue light before it reaches the retina, blue light is never allowed to cause distortion.

What are lens coatings?
Chemical coatings on lenses can do a number of things: anti-reflective coatings increase the transmission of light through the lens; scratch-resistant coatings prevent scratches; mirror coatings reflect intense glare away from the eyes. All coatings increase the value and versatility of your sunglasses.

Why are lens coatings important?
Lens coatings are particularly important in sunglasses because of the protection they provide for your eyes and lenses. Quality lens coatings greatly improve the performance and protection of your lenses.

Why are quality sunglasses important?
Poor quality sunglasses that simply reduce the amount of glare reaching the eye without, blocking any harmful rays are enormously harmful to eye health. Because poor quality sunglasses allow the pupil to dilate and actually increase the amount of dangerous radiation and fatiguing glare that can enter and injure the eye. This damage is cumulative, and can accrue over the course of years.

Are prescription sunglasses available?
Yes, although most local optical laboratories do not make them. Crafting and fitting prescription sunglass lenses into sunglass frames, especially wrap style frames, are difficult and require a high degree of skill. The laboratory at 20/20 EyeCare has had many years of experience grinding, polishing and fitting such lenses into many kinds of frames.

Is it possible to put a prescription in any frame?
No. It depends on both an individual’s prescription and the desired frame. Some combinations of prescription and frame are not possible.
