SERVICES

Eyewear is NOT a commodity.

 

Although any product can be bought on the internet,

our service and expertise cannot.

We combine expert knowledge of our profession with state-of-the art technology, precision-crafted lenses, and premium quality eyewear. 

We work with you to select frames that are appropriate for your prescription, fit flawlessly, and complement your image and lifestyle. 

We specialize in fitting eyeglasses for all ages, including infants and toddlers. We carry the largest selection of pediatric

eyewear in the area.

We will expertly fill your prescription - from the simplest to the most complex -  to precise optical standards in our professional on-site laboratory.

We test the finished lenses to ensure they meet our strict quality control standards. 

We expertly fit your new eyeglasses for maximum comfort and functionality.

We offer ongoing service and repair of our eyeglasses as needed.

We listen. We communicate. We advise.

We want you to love your eyeglasses!

 
 

FRAMES

Here is a small sample of the brands we offer. Please come in to see more.

 

We will work with you to find a frame with a comfortable balance of fashion, function and fit.

LENSES

Among the multitude of choices on the market, all lenses are NOT created equal.  

 

The right lenses for you will depend on your prescription, lifestyle, work, and leisure activities. We will help you select the optimum combination of lens and coating options to give you the best vision possible.

For example, after age 40, most adults develop a condition known as presbyopia, which is manifested by blurred vision at normal reading distances and results in an instinctive habit of  holding reading material farther and farther away. Reading, bifocal, trifocal, and state-of-the-art progressive lenses compensate for this and other natural visual changes.  

Due to ubiquitous use of computers, tablets, and SmartPhones, people of all ages are experiencing unprecedented eye strain. headaches, and neck pain as a result of extended use of these devices. In response, lens manufacturers have developed specific lenses and coatings to help you see clearly and comfortably at  intermediate ranges and relieve these symptoms. 

 

Additional lens coating options and blue-light filters can minimize reflections and eyestrain for crisper vision in all lighting situations, provide protection against scratches, and maximize the ability to keep your lenses clean.

Sun & Sports Protection

Most lens materials inherently block harmful cataract-causing UV-rays. Sunglass lens options range from self-tinting, which react to changing light conditions, to polarized which filter out most glare created by sunlight reflected off water, snow, and other surfaces. 

Impact-resistant lenses used in sports glasses for adults and children are not only crucial in preventing serious eye injuries but can also be customized for particular sports activities. 

Proper care of your lenses will extend their life and effectiveness. Don't leave your eyeglasses in the sun or near a heat source as this can damage the coating and frames.

Keep them in a protective case when not in use.
