Buying glasses can be a costly matter. Shortcuts, such as diagnosing yourself and buying prescription glasses at a drug store may cause more harm than benefit in the future. Despite what the costs may be, glasses that are purchased in a doctor’s office typically are more problem-free, better quality and more accurate because they are fitted specifically for your vision impairments. (Consumer Reports, “The Specs on Specs,” July 1997)
These tips will ensure that you know what to look for when choosing the right glasses and lens:
- Make sure you know what each type of lens includes. Research the different types to decide which one would be best for you. By asking yourself what you need in your lens you can then benefit the most from them.
- Don’t let high prices scare you. By buying a better, more expensive quality frame, you can save money because you won’t have to worry about them breaking and having to replace them.
- Buy glasses that fit your personality. If you are sporty, you’re most likely not going to feel comfortable in high-class fashion frames. It is important to feel comfortable in frames because if not you may be buying something you won’t end up wearing.
Following these tips before going in to pick out glasses will help make the selection a lot easier and not as overwhelming leaving you with better vision and a great looking new accessory!
In order to keep your eyes healthy, it is important to know what exactly can help you. These five tips are basic and can be done by anyone!
1. Eat fruits and vegetables rich in Beta Carotene, i.e. carrots, spinach, mangoes, etc. The Beta Carotene is said to help prevent Macular Degeneration (an eye disease causing blindness) as well as some forms of cancer.
2. Getting plenty of rest helps to give your eyes a break and time to refresh.
3. Exercising helps to improve your blood circulation which ensures that your eyes are getting enough oxygen.
4. Drinking 12 glasses of water a day will eliminate the puffiness that may appear around your eyes.
5. Always protect your eyes from the sun at the peak time of day. Excessive sun-rays can cause serious damage to your eyes.
Be sure to follow these for results you’ll really be able to see!

We have HDTV and Blue-Ray DVD’s, so why not High-Definition Glasses? The answer is, we DO have that equivalent technology. Free Form technology is here from a few special lens manufactures around the world and we are very proud to offer them to our patients.
What is the difference? The enhanced vision is found for two different reasons.
#1: The lenses are digitally fabricated by a computer instead of being ground by a technician. The precision and accuracy is greatly enhanced by the computer’s ability to create exact specifications.
#2: The prescription is now etched onto the INSIDE surface of the glasses instead of the outside surface.
This small difference in prescription placement is HUGE. Based on the keyhole principle; the closer the prescription is to your eyes, the wider your field of view is. Most people have experienced the ‘swim and sway’ distortion associated with no-line bifocals. This has been greatly minimized with the advent of putting the Rx on the inside surface of the glasses. In fact, some of these new digital no-line bifocals can give up to a 30% wider field of view.
We hope this will encourage the few who have not been able to ‘adjust’ into their no-line bifocals in the past, and will give others the confidence of high definition vision when it comes time to update your prescription at your annual eye exam.
