Eyeglass Lenses in Plano
Do you spend a lot of time switching between indoors and outdoors? If so, you may want to consider photochromic lenses, with a tint that adapts automatically to the lighting conditions. Kids, people who engage in sports and anyone with a very active lifestyle should think seriously about getting eyeglasses crafted with Trivex or polycarbonate lenses. Not only do they provide extra safety for delicate eyes, they’re also thinner, lighter and incredibly impact resistant.
Depending upon your vision condition, you may need bifocals or trifocals, and progressive lenses are a favorite – as they provide crisp vision for both near and far, yet without an unattractive or bothersome “lens line” cutting through the eyeglasses. Proper alignment and placement of your eyeglasses in front of your eyes is always important, and even more so when you wear multifocals. Our eye care experts will assess and verify the position of your frames so that your vision correction is as great as can be.
While taking care of your prescription eyeglasses is simple, the importance of good eyewear maintenance shouldn’t be minimized! For long-lasting wear and quality vision, the best tip we can give you is to keep your glasses on your face – or in a hard case. Treat your eyeglasses well, and you’ll benefit from great eyesight with an amazing look!
