We also provide specialty lens options for your optical eyewear such as transitions, polarized, anti-glare, polycarbonate, high index, progressive (no line multifocal), occupational lenses, sport goggles, and prescription sunglasses.

Lens selection:

Single Vision: One focal point of vision, either distance or near.

Bifocal: Two focal points of vision, distance and near.

Trifocal: Three focal points of vision, distance, intermediate, and near.

Progressive: These lenses have many advantages over bifocals and trifocals because they allow the wearer to focus at all focal points without the visible lines.

Lens materials & benefits:

Standard plastic (CR-39): The standard basic material used for moderate prescriptions.

Polycarbonate: Light weight, very durable, great for active people- especially kids, and thinner than plastic.

High Index: Thinner and lighter in weight because the material is denser and suggested in high prescriptions and  offer superior optics.

Super High Index: Thinnest lens alternative to standard plastic.  Ideal for higher prescriptions and thinner than standard plastic.

Aspheric: Advanced optical design technology allows eyeglass lenses to be made with flatter curves than conventional lenses, giving them a slimmer, more attractive profile. Great combination with high index lenses.

Photochromatic: Photochromic lenses (also called variable-tint lenses or Transition lenses) doubles as 2 pairs in one that darken in the sun and clear indoors are convenient for people who spend a lot of time outdoors. A disadvantage of these lenses is that they don’t get really dark in a vehicle because they are activated by direct sunlight.

Polarized: This is the ideal alternative to just tinted lenses.  Polarized have filters that block out reflected light rather than darkening it.  This is great for driving or water and outdoor activities.

Anti-Reflective: Improves vision looking through the lenses and enhances the appearance of the glasses. Anti-reflective treated lenses cut out the glare especially night driving and reflections or working in front of the computer.  The decrease in glare means that the wearer will notice their eyes less tired and strained at the end of the day.

Scratch-resistant Coatings: No eyeglass lens material (even glass) is scratch proof.  However, a treated lens is more resistant to day to day scratching from cleaning or accidentally dropping your eyeglasses on the floor.  Again, no lens material is scratch proof!

Ultraviolet (UV) treatment: Just as you would use sunscreen on your skin to protect from harmful UV rays you would protect your precious eyes as well.  Overexposure to ultraviolet light is thought to cause problems such as cataracts, retinal damage, pterygium, and other eye conditions.


 Don’t forget to use your flex spending account for your contacts, glasses, and prescription sunglasses!!!

Dear patient,

As people practice social distancing in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, we want you to know that your health is still a priority for us. We are implementing a telehealth program so that we may continue to serve our patients during this difficult time.

If you have healthcare needs in the coming weeks, including routine follow-up appointment, or even refilling for a prescription, please reach out to our office to schedule a virtual appointment. We will first screen to see if the visit can be completed remotely. Many of the services that we provide can be performed through audio or live audio-visual communications, such as FaceTime and Skype.

For visits that cannot be completed remotely, our clinic is now open for patients to be seen in the office. We are working to implement measures to maintain social distancing and keep everyone safe during this time.

· Mandatory Masking- All patients and visitors are responsible to provide and wear their own mask upon entry. Pt will have to be rescheduled otherwise.

· Isolation- Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms is isolated from waiting areas, patient rooms,. Entrances, and any spaces that the general population uses. No escorting members are allowed into the clinic with the patient, with the only exception being an essential caretaker.

· Cleaning- Our teams are performing extra cleaning and disinfecting in all spaces.

· Employee Screening- We’ve instituted mandatory employee temperature screenings before each shift.

Thank you for your cooperation, and please stay safe.
