One of the great things about practicing optometry in the 21st century is the wide array of vision correction options available to patients. The companies that provide optical products have made significant advancements in the past few decades which have increased the effectiveness, comfort and wearability of eyewear.
Selecting the right vision correction isn’t as simple as writing out a prescription. We take an individual approach with each patient, identifying not only their correction but also any work and/or lifestyle factors that will contribute to the effectiveness of a particular pair of glasses or type of contact lens.
For example, we might recommend a pair of athletic goggles for patients who participate in certain sports. Someone who spends a lot of time outdoors will benefit from Transitions lenses. People who tried contact lenses ten years ago but didn’t find them comfortable may be able to wear the newer, more breathable lenses. If you are someone who often finds your glasses smashed under a stack of books next to your nightstand, we even have an ultra-durable pair for you.
With a comprehensive annual exam, we can stay on top of your prescription and anticipate how different products will serve your needs. But we also realize that purchasing eyewear is not just about vision correction. We have a wide variety of frames that will satisfy even the most fashion-forward patients.
