Optical Shop

In addition to the comprehensive ophthalmology services we provide, our practice features an optical center with a wide array of eyeglass frames and contact lenses to suit every look and budget. Patients can choose frames from many elite designers, as well as stylish yet affordable alternatives. In addition, we carry a full line of frames for children and teens and a great selection of athletic eyewear. Our convenient onsite location eliminates the hassle of having to take your prescription to another location in order to fill your vision correction needs.

Eyeglass Frames

When visiting our optical center, patients will be seen by one of our experienced optometrists, who will help you decide which frames are best for you. Many factors are taken into consideration, including your personal style, the shape of your face and your coloring. We offer a tremendous variety of eyewear from top quality designer and fashion manufacturers to fit every style.

Choosing the Right Lenses

Choosing the right lenses for your prescription needs is just as important as finding a frame that suits you. There are many options available today and our knowledgeable staff is happy to help you find the one that is best for you. Some lenses are thinner and lighter than others, lending themselves to stronger prescriptions, rimless styles and smaller frames. Others are top-of-the-line polycarbonate for the maximum scratch and impact resistance available, which makes them perfect for active individuals. Some of the most popular, useful features chosen by our customers are anti-reflective coatings, dirt resistance and provide 100% UVA and UVB protection.

A Selection of Contact Lenses

If you opt for contact lenses, our staff can evaluate your needs in order to fit you correctly and comfortably. We can help you navigate the many choices such as daily wear, extended wear and disposables to perfectly suit your lifestyle. We offer a selection of all of the top contact lens brands, including Acuvue, CIBA Air Optix, Bausch & Lomb, Fresh Look and Proclear.

There are contact lens types available to meet your every need:

Bifocal/Multifocal lenses provide clear vision for those who have trouble seeing at more than one distance. Bifocals can improve both reading and far distance, while multifocals also provide clarity to the middle distance, such as for doing computer work.

Monovision lenses are another way to correct both nearsightedness and farsightedness if bifocal lenses aren't comfortable. With this solution, the lens in one eye corrects your near vision and the lens in the other eye corrects your distance vision.

Astigmatism correction can be achieved using contact lenses to make blurry or distorted vision sharp once more.

Colored contacts can change the color of your eyes either subtly or dramatically while also correcting your vision.

Disposable lenses require no maintenance because they are worn for the day, then discarded.

Contact Lenses

A contact lens is a thin, convex disc that floats on the surface of the eye, providing vision correction. With advances in optical technology, most people can use contact lenses, regardless of the type or extent of their vision problems. This includes patients with astigmatism, and those who need bifocal or multifocal lenses. In some cases, however, contact lenses are contraindicated.

Bifocal and Multifocal Eyeglass Lenses

Presbyopia, which is the visual inability of the lens of the eye to focus on objects that are close, may take years to develop. Patients usually begin to show symptoms of presbyopia in their early- to mid-40s. Bifocal or multifocal eyeglasses will provide patients with presbyopia the ability to see clearly at all distances.

Prescription Eyeglasses

More than 140 million people in the United States wear eyeglasses. Eyeglasses improve vision by adjusting the way the eyes bend and focus light. Ideally, light rays are refracted, or bent, as they pass through the cornea so that they focus on the retina in the back of the eye. In a healthy eye, this means that objects can be seen clearly. Most people have corneas that have a shallow or steep curvature which causes light rays to focus in front of or behind the retina. Objects may then appear blurry at certain distances or at all distances.
