Many people have vision needs, and having to wear glasses is rather common. There are many different types of vision problems, and each one is unique to the patient. That is why annual eye exams and vision tests are recommended for everyone. With routine testing, your eye doctor or optician is capable of learning more about your health needs as well as any specific details pertaining to your developing vision needs. Here at our Tuckahoe eye shop, Optical Visit, we can provide patients with comprehensive care as well as with specialty lenses of all kinds.
There are so many different lens options out there. When it comes to getting glasses, you may need to know more about your needs and preferences other than your optical prescription alone. When choosing glasses, you will want to think of your daily life, what activities you participate in, what outfits you wear and what occasions you may attend. Once you have chosen the perfect frames, you can move onto lenses. In some cases, lense types pertain to specific vision needs. For example, bifocals, trifocals and progressives are all helpful for people who need seeing at varying distances. Progressives can help ease stress on your eyes while still allowing you to see clearly up close, at midrange and faraway. For people with extreme prescription strength lenses, high index plastic and polycarbonate lenses are lighter and thinner so you can still meet your prescription needs without having extremely thick lenses. Trivex lenses can help you achieve the same as well, though are more commonly used for rimless glasses. No matter what your needs or preferences are, we here at Optical Visit can help. Our Tuckahoe eye shop even has options like photochromic lenses that tint accordingly when walking outside or remaining indoors.
If you are in the market for new frames, consider your lenses as well. Visit us here at Optical Visit where our Tuckahoe eye shop staff can help you make the best choice.
