Prescription Eyeglasses

asian glasses girl holding frame, optometrist, Irvine & Laguna Beach, CANo matter what your eye condition, or how you choose to view the world, there are now prescription lenses that meet your unique lifestyle and vision correction needs. Eyeglass lenses that change as the light changes, from clear indoors to dark outdoors. Bifocal lenses that provide multiple fields of vision. High-index lenses that are thinner and lighter than ever before. And progressive lenses that eliminate the traditional lines of multifocal lenses. The point is, while eyeglass lenses are prescribed to correct all kinds of vision problems, prescription lenses have come a long way—offering you the opportunity to truly customize your eyeglasses and make a statement about how you choose to look at the world.

  • Eyeglasses are more popular today than ever, despite the availability of contact lenses and vision correction surgery.
  • Manufactured to be thinner at the edges of the lens and lighter in weight overall—a good choice for people with stronger prescriptions.
  • Photochromic lenses change from clear to dark based on the intensity of UV radiation.
  • Progressive lenses allow multiple vision fields to be incorporated into a single lens without any clear distinction between the fields themselves. This is why progressive lenses are often referred to as “no-line” bifocals or trifocals.
  • So often, one pair of eyeglasses simply can’t do it all. Watch a short video about the benefits of having a second pair!
