What kind of frames are best for me?

Factors like appearance and lifestyle come into play when choosing eyeglass frames. If you want your eyeglasses to enhance your appearance, look for frames that complement the shape of your face, skin tone, and color of your hair and eyes. Eyeglass frames should also suit your lifestyle for optimal use over the years. Designer frames are more costly but are of higher quality, giving you more for your investment.

How often should I get new eyeglasses?

Changes in your vision may require that you get new eyeglasses to correct your sight properly. Our optometrists will inform you of any changes in your prescription during your annual eye exam. If your designer frames are in good shape, you may prefer to change your lenses to match your new prescription and keep your frames to save on costs. 

How can I avoid annoying reflections on my eyeglasses? 

One of the biggest concerns many have about wearing eyeglasses is the annoying glare many experiences from wearing typical lenses. Those wanting to avoid reflections on their eyeglasses should get an anti-reflective coating (AR coating) to help quickly see through the lenses and prevent glare spots.

Do I have to change between eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses? 

Depending upon your eyeglass prescription, you can choose to get glasses that change to sunglasses when going outside. These glasses use photochromic lenses and darken when exposed to the sunlight. This option is best for those who go in and outside frequently, without the need to change glasses constantly.
