FAQ’s

What do you need in order to get glasses made?
We will need a current copy of your latest prescription, signed and dated by your doctor.
What are the benefits of digitally manufactured lenses?
Digital manufacturing allows us to fabricate lenses more accurately than previously available. Your lenses can be calculated for your prescription, allowing for better vision at all gaze angles, which allows you greater comfort in your daily visual tasks.
What is Digital Eye Strain?
Digital Eye Strain is caused by exposure to the blue light which enters the eye while engaging in tasks using digital devices such as smartphones, tablets, computer screens, and many other devices with LED or LCD screens. The blue light emitted from these devices is not focused on the retina of the eye which causes your brain to continually attempt to focus it, resulting in muscular fatigue in your visual system.
Do you have solutions for Digital Eye Strain?
Yes, we do. Using specific lens materials and coatings, we can create a lens to block the harmful blue light, UV, and high-intensity visual light which causes Digital Eye Strain. These lenses will give you greater comfort in your digital device use.
What type of sun lenses do you have?
We can do many options including polarized, which help reduce glare, mirror-coated, which help reduce the amount of light passing through to your eyes, and fixed tinted lenses, which can be semi-customized to get the darkness and color you want.
Do I need sunglasses?
Yes, it is always a good choice to have a pair of sunglasses in addition to your everyday glasses for UV protection, blue-light protection, more comfortable vision, and to avoid many medical issues associated with lack of proper eyewear.
What are "Transition" lenses?

Transitions lenses are a variable tint lens, which means that they will darken or lighten depending on the exposure to Ultra-Violet light. They will lighten to a virtually clear lens while indoors and darken to a sunglass shade when outdoors. Though Transitions are versatile, they do not darken sufficiently to use as a sunglass for driving.

What options do you have for sunglasses?
We carry frames that are suitable for nearly every activity, from the latest wrap-around frames to standard frames.
What is a progressive lens?
A progressive lens is an eyeglass lens that has a smooth transition between parts with different focal lengths, correcting for vision at all distances.
What is Anti-Reflective coating and what are the benefits?
Anti-Reflective coatings allow more light to pass through the lens rather than being reflected off the surfaces both front and back. The benefit is clearer vision without annoying “ghost” reflections.
Can you repair my eyeglasses if they are broken or misaligned?

Yes, we can.

We will repair any frame that we can, including soldering, replacing screws, nose pads, and temple tips, and we will adjust eyewear for comfort and fit.

What other services do you provide?

No job is too difficult for our team.

We offer frame repair when possible, assistance in selection of new frames, with an eye for style and function. We advise patients on lens types and styles, as well as coating and features.

We will even help fill out any forms needed for out-of-network insurance claims.

Just ask, and we will do anything we can to help!
