Glasses have become more of a fashion accessory than just a set of frames with lenses designed to help you see clearer. As a result, many eyeglass options have become more of a statement piece and just as stylish as belts, earrings, and purses. So, if contact lenses bother you, you will have many options to choose from when looking for stylish and functional glasses. Learn more about our options at World of Vision in Vero Beach, FL.
Comprehensive Eye Exams
A comprehensive eye exam is a thorough analysis to help correct vision problems and identify any concerns. The comprehensive eye exam includes tests to check visual acuity, color blindness, and other vision-related issues. The exam also tests for glaucoma, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other health-related problems. Once the eye exam is completed, Dr. Weiss will prescribe lenses so you can get fitted for frames.
Getting Fitted for Glasses
Once you have a prescription for your eyeglasses from our optometrist, your next step is to have an eyeglass fitting with an optician. While helping you select the perfect pair of eyeglasses for your optical needs, an optician makes sure your overall eye care needs are met. An eyeglass fitting also involves checking the pupil distance to ensure the glasses are precisely crafted to meet your vision correction needs.
What Types of Lenses are Available?
Technological advances have provided eye care patients with many options for their eyeglass needs, including lenses made from high-tech plastic, making them lighter and less bulky. Additionally, newer lenses do not break as easily and can be treated to help protect your eyes against damaging UV rays. The different lenses include polycarbonate, trivex, high-index plastic, photochromic, and aspheric.
Are Polarized Prescription Sunglasses Available?
Polarized sunglasses help reduce glare on glossy surfaces, such as glass or water. These lenses are perfect for sports, boating, and driving.
Multifocal lenses allow those who are older and need multiple eye prescriptions to see up close and far away from a single eyeglass prescription. Multifocal lenses, called bifocals or trifocals, allow glass wearers one pair of eyeglasses to meet all of their precise vision needs.
