A quality pair of sunglasses is critical for your eye health, and our optical department offers not only the highest quality medical-grade sunwear for your protection but also brands and styles your fashion sense will appreciate. We carry brands such as Maui Jim and Oakley. We can even customize your sunwear with your prescription.
Many occupations and hobbies impose demanding visual requirements, especially for those who need bifocals or trifocals. Special occupational designs are available to solve these special needs. If you have visual demands that your glasses cannot meet, please let us know so we can also make recommendations for your eye wear to suit your specific situation and needs.
Due to our increased computer demands, numerous lens designs have been made available to enhance vision at computer and reading viewing distances. Computer screen filters, workstation ergonomic design and anti-reflection coatings can help make working on the computer easier and more comfortable. We can prescribe computer lenses to optimize your comfort and performance while on the computer and working at your desk.
Special lens designs and materials are available for the unique needs of athletes -- both adults and children. These include wrap-around sunglasses to protect from wind and dust for bikers and runners, and light weight frames for basketball and football players. Specific colored and tinted lenses can enhance contrast for hunters and golfers. Also, swim goggles can be customized with your prescription for enhanced underwater protection. Sports glasses are made from more durable plastics for safety and comfort, while polycarbonate lenses are impact resistant for safety and better eye protection.
Harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays damage our eyes and over time will cause macular degeneration and cataracts, common causes of blindness. Therefore, medical grade sunwear is important to anyone who values their eyesight. Polarized lenses are the best and safest sunglass choice, providing the most protection from ultraviolet rays. (Inexpensive, over-the-counter sunglasses sold in department stores are ineffective in blocking UV rays.) Polarized glasses are particularly a necessity for those who are light sensitive, virtually eliminating reflected glare. People who spend a lot of time outdoors -- drivers, fisherman, skiers, and boaters -- find polarized lenses increase visibility and comfort better than any other type of sunwear. Check out our large selection of Maui Jim and Oakley Polarized Sunglasses.
Technology has expanded and increased the quality of both lens materials and designs over the last few years. This means that you have more choices than ever before to provide you with the best vision possible. Our office offers only top quality lens materials and the latest advancements in lens designs. We recommend light weight, durable materials with anti-reflective coatings such as Super HiVision with EX3 and the latest Transitions lenses.
