When you need new eyeglasses, your first step is to get an eye exam from our optometrist. We will let you know if there are any changes in your prescription, but we also screen for conditions like glaucoma and cataracts. Before and perhaps during your exam, you will be asked questions about your lifestyle and how you work to get better recommendations regarding the lenses that will go inside your new glasses. For example, if you are on the computer a lot, you may get a proposal to protect your eyes from blue light, or you may need protection from glare if you spend a lot of time driving. At Jackson Eye, we do our best to be mindful of what our customers need, because we want you to be completely satisfied with your eyeglasses.
Choose Frames for Your Eyeglasses
With your new prescription and suggestions from your eye doctor, you are ready to head to Jackson Eye's optical shop. You will find a large selection of budget and designer frames there, whether you go all out with your favorite designer frames or pick something more economical. People with a square or round face tend to look better in frames that will help their faces look longer. Those with a narrow chin look best in glasses with a wider bottom. A diamond face with high cheekbones, little eyes, and jawlines looks great with an oval or cat-eye frame. At Jackson Eye, we have a friendly staff that can help guide you as much as you want in picking the best structure.
Put the Right Lenses in Your Frames
Once you have your frame, you need your new lenses to go in them. Your prescription will indicate whether you need single-vision or multi-focal lenses. If you need bifocals or trifocals, you can decide between lines visible on your lenses, or a progressive no-line lens, depending on your needs and budget.
Several materials are also available for lenses, and your best options will be based on your lifestyle and prescription. If your medicine is strong, lightweight lenses are important. Standard lenses used today include:
- Plastic Lenses
- Polycarbonate Lenses
- High Index Plastic Lenses
Various coatings may also be added to your lenses for the best protection. These options include the following:
- Anti-reflective coating
- Ultraviolet blocking treatment
- Photochromatic treatment
