Selecting your lenses and frames is a very personal choice. A wide variety of options are available that can be tailored to suit not only your medical needs but also your fashion preferences. The professionally trained staff at Insight Eye Care helps guide you to the choice that is perfect for your lifestyle.
Design, material and treatments are the three components that make up a pair of prescription lenses. It is important to select the right combination of these elements for your particular visual needs and to always consult your eye care professional.
The knowledgeable staff at Insight Eye Care will consider long-term wearing comfort, style, features and function when suggesting a new pair of eyeglasses. The eyeglasses become as unique as the person taking them home.
Selecting the right eyeglass lens depends largely on your needs and wants. From single vision lenses to multifocal lenses, we are happy to help you find what best matches your needs. Regardless of your situation, your eye care provider can help determine what types of lenses will work best for you in terms of comfort, function and design.
When choosing a frame, the shape and size of the frame should enhance the color of your eyes, complement your skin tone and play up the best features of your face shape.
Most people need more than one pair of glasses, such as one for everyday wear, computer glasses and another for outdoor activities. Having different style frames for different activities and moods makes wearing glasses more fun. Our certified opticians are helpful in making sure you have the right style.
With the wide variety of lens options available, you can customize your “sunnies” (sunglasses) to meet your visual, protection, performance and comfort needs. Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present even on cloudy days. Quality sunwear provides 100 percent UV protection and can significantly reduce the risk of vision problems caused by sunlight such as cataracts and retinal damage.
Glare, an issue that makes it difficult to see objects clearly by washing out colors and details, can be combated by polarized lenses. Looking at a scene with polarized lenses, you’ll notice the colors are deeper, richer and bolder, and details are clearer and more distinct. Polarized lenses also help reduce squinting, which, in turn, reduces eye fatigue, tension and eyestrain.
Wearers of prescription glasses and sunglasses commonly encounter annoying glare and reflections caused by light bouncing off their lenses. This glare makes it more difficult to see, especially at night. Non-glare lenses reduce these reflections 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 lenses that do not filter glare is like trying to read a book in a dimly lit room. Since non-glare 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.
Artificial blue light from screens and energy-efficient lighting disrupts your biological clock and causes digital eye strain—negatively impacting sleep, health, and productivity. Blue light can also make certain eye diseases worse. BluTech lenses reduce your exposure to blue light, allowing you better comfort throughout your day. Ask your doctor or optician if BluTech lenses are right for you. For more information please schedule an appointment with your optometrist, and we’ll be in touch with you shortly.
