Do you have a hard time choosing eyeglasses?
Selecting your lenses and frames is a very personal choice. You want to highlight your features, play with color, and augment vision for different functions such as reading, driving, and playing sports.
A wide variety of eyeglass options are available that can be tailored to suit your medical needs and meet your fashion preferences. But with all the choices, choosing eyeglasses can be a daunting experience without the right guidance. The experts at Montrose Eye Care in Houston make the decision easy.
What elements are important when choosing eyeglass frames?
Design, material, and treatment are the three components that make up a pair of prescription eyeglasses. It’s essential to select the right combination of these elements for your specific visual needs. You can count on Dr. Lovero’s expertise to guide your decisions.
The team at Montrose Eye Care considers long-term wearing comfort, style, features, and function when suggesting a new pair of eyeglasses. They want to be sure each pair of eyeglasses becomes as unique as the person taking them home.
Can you choose different types of eyeglass lenses?
Selecting the right eyeglass lens depends primarily on its function. From single vision lenses to progressive polycarbonate lenses, the team at Montrose Eye Care is happy to help you find the eyeglass lens that best suits your needs. Dr. Lovero can determine the type of lens that provides optimal vision correction with comfort and the design you prefer.
How can eyeglass frames enhance your appearance?
When choosing a frame, the shape and size of the frame should enhance the color of your eyes, complement your skin tone, and play up the best features of your face shape.
Most people need more than one pair of glasses, such as one for everyday wear and another for outdoor activities. Having different style eyeglass frames for various activities and moods makes wearing glasses more fun.
What should you know about prescription sunglasses?
Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present even on cloudy days. Top quality sunglasses provide 100 percent UV protection, significantly reducing the risk of vision problems caused by sunlight, such as cataracts and retinal damage.
With the wide variety of eyeglass lens options available, you can protect your vision while customizing your “sunnies” (sunglasses) to meet your visual, protection, performance, and comfort needs.
Sunlight glare, an issue that makes it difficult to see objects clearly by washing out colors and details, can be combated with polarized lenses. When you look through polarized lenses, you’ll notice that colors are deeper, more vibrant, and bolder, and details are more precise and distinct. Polarized lenses also help reduce squinting, which reduces eye fatigue, tension, and eyestrain.
What are anti-reflective lenses?
People who wear prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses commonly encounter annoying reflections caused by light bouncing off their lenses. All lens surfaces naturally reflect light, which can block between 7-14% of the light needed for optimal vision. Lens reflection also produces glare that makes it more difficult to see, especially at night.
Vision with regular lenses can be like trying to read a book in a dimly lit room. As anti-reflective lenses reduce reflection and allow more light to pass through your eyes, they make it easier to see, much like turning up the lights in a room.
