Lenses and Frames
Selecting your lenses and frame is a more personalized experience than ever before. A wide variety of options are available that can be tailored to suit not only your medical needs or specific activities, but also your fashion preferences.
Change your look, play with color, or customize your vision for different functions such as reading, driving and playing sports. With all the choices available, the experience can be overwhelming without the right guidance. At West Georgia Eye Care, our staff will consider long-term wearing comfort, style, features and function when suggesting a new pair of eyeglasses. The eyeglasses become as unique as the person taking them home.
Selecting the right eyeglass lens depends largely on how it can help you throughout your day. Whether you need single vision lenses to help with driving, to read a little clearer or customized progressive lenses to help with both, we are happy to help you find what best suits your needs. There are even task specific lenses that are perfect for those that use a computer for more than a few hours a day. Regardless of your situation, the eye doctors and staff will help determine what types of lenses will work best for you.
Your new glasses not only function as a device to help you see better, but also make a fashion statement. When choosing a frame, the shape, size and color of the frame should enhance your eyes, complement your skin tone and play up the best features of your face shape. Most people have a need for more than one pair of glasses, such as one for everyday wear and another for outdoor activities. Sunglasses are a great second pair that can provide superior protections against the elements, while enjoying the great outdoors. Having a spare pair for emergencies can come also come in handy.
Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present even on cloudy days. Quality sun-wear provides 100 percent UV protection and can significantly reduce the risk of vision problems caused by sunlight such as cataracts and macular degeneration. Polarized lenses provide superior vision eliminating glare from the reflected sunlight. By blocking unwanted glare, these lenses make objects brighter,clearer and more distinct and reduce eyestrain due to squinting.
Anti -reflective treatments are a necessity for all glasses wearers regardless of age. With all the digital devices and newer brighter headlights on cars, the amount of glare our eyes are exposed too is higher than ever before. This glare creates halos and glare, especially at night and can cause eye strain, eye fatigue and headaches. A good anti-reflective treatment will eliminate that glare making it easier to drive, use a computer for longer periods of time all while providing superior scratch protection for your lenses.
As you can see, lenses and frames are a very personal choice with a lot of options to consider. Our doctors and staff have the experience to guide you toward eye-wear selections that are comfortable, fashionable and work to meet all of your visual needs.
