Optical Services Q&A

 

What are optical services?

Optical services are services or devices that help make your vision sharper so you can read, drive, recognize faces, and otherwise use your eyes effectively. 

When you come to Center for Advanced Eye Care for regular exams, part of the visit involves vision tests. The results of a vision test can tell you if you need optical services and whether your prescription for corrective eyewear has changed since your last visit. 

Center for Advanced Eye Care has an onsite lab so you can get same-day service on your prescriptions in many cases. They also offer a wide range of name-brand and designer frames for you to choose from, and offer free minor repair and adjustment services for your glasses. 

How do I know if I need optical services?

Optical services like corrective eyewear can treat several vision issues that are highly common, especially with age. Some of them even prevent eye issues. The team at Center for Advanced Eye Care tests your vision to see if you have refractive errors like:

Nearsightedness

Nearsightedness, also called myopia, involves issues with distance vision. The objects close to you appear sharp and clear, but the farther away you get, the blurrier the object becomes. 

Farsightedness

Farsightedness, or hyperopia, causes objects close to you to appear blurry. Things at a distance look much more clear and sharp. 

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is an age-related change to your eye. When you have it, your lens gets more rigid and your eyes can’t adjust as easily to focus. 

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is an irregular curvature of your cornea. It causes your vision to look blurry, wavy,  or otherwise distorted. 

Which optical services are available?

When it comes to correcting your vision, you have lots of customizable options to meet your needs. Center for Advanced Eye Care offers:

Eyeglasses

Glasses can correct refractive errors and make your vision sharper at every distance. You can pick out a frame that’s flattering for your face’s shape and speaks to your personal style, and the team fills the frame with your prescription lenses.

Transition lenses

Transition lenses are glasses lenses that convert themselves into sunglasses when you go outside. This can save you the cost of getting a pair of prescription sunglasses on top of your regular glasses, and they’re especially helpful if you’re forgetful about bringing your sunglasses along when you leave the house. 

Sunglasses

Sunglasses are available with or without a prescription. Either way, they come with ultraviolet (UV) protection, which reduces your risk for eye diseases like macular degeneration, cataracts, and photokeratitis. 

Contact lenses

Contact lenses are an alternative to glasses to fill your prescription. There are lots of different options for them, including monovision, multifocal lenses, and toric lenses. 

If it’s time for a new prescription or a prescription change to correct your vision, call Center for Advanced Eye Care or book an appointment online for optical services today.

Sunglasses


Most people know that the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays are bad for the skin. But did you know that too much sun on unprotected eyes increases the risk of eye diseases? Long-term exposure to the sun without proper protection can increase the risk of eye disease, including cataractmacular degenerationgrowths on the eye, and a rare form of eye cancer. Even short-term exposure can damage the eyes. Sun reflecting off water can cause a painful sunburn on the front part of the eye, called photokeratitis. Wear sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of both UVA and UVB radiation.

For those who wear prescription eyeglasses, sun protection is available in a number of options including prescription sunglasses, photochromic lenses or eyeglasses with clip-on sunglass lenses. The best solution depends on your personal preferences, comfort and which option fits in best with your lifestyle.

Prescription Sunglasses


Prescription sunglasses are available for nearly all vision prescriptions including those for farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism, as well as bifocal and progressive lenses. Most any pair of sunglasses can be fit with prescription lenses as long as the shape of the lens doesn’t misconstrue vision. When you find that pair of sunglasses you love do not hesitate to ask if they can be fit for prescription lens.

Prescription lenses also come in a variety of materials and coatings, including, polarized lenses, tinted lenses, anti-scratch coatings, polycarbonate or Trivex lenses plus many other options.

Individuals that wear contact lenses, prescription sunglasses, are also a great option. There are those days where you choose not to wear you contacts due to dryness or irritations. Prescription sunglasses can offer you comfort, safety, and great vision.

Transition Lenses


Transition lenses, also known as, photochromic lenes, are convenient. You can use these glasses under most circumstances, whether indoors or outside. They offer continuous UV protection. You will no longer forget your sunglasses or not bother to put them on for a trip outside.They won’t get lost as easily. You and your children are less likely to lose glasses when you don’t have two pairs to keep track of. They are available in many styles and colors, and can meet the prescription needs of most people. If you need shatter-resistant lenses, bifocals, progressives or have other specific needs, there’s almost certainly a photochromic lens for you. They can save you money. You may not need to buy prescription eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses as well.

Contact Lenses


Are contact lenses the best option for you?

If you have presbyopia, the irreversible loss of the accommodative ability of the eye that occurs due to aging, then YES contact lenses may be a great option for you! We offer many options for contact lenses including monovision, multifocal/bifocal, & toric lenses.
