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.
