Eyeglasses from Vision Plus
Eyeglasses serve many different functions in today's world. Not only are they the primary way that many choose to correct their vision, but they also help protect against glare from the sun, blue light from electronics, and various other hazards we encounter in our day to day lives.
Finding the Right Eyeglasses Prescription
The most important thing about eyeglasses is that they help you see. The most common reasons for wearing glasses are nearsightedness (myopia) and farsightedness (hyperopia). At Vision Plus in San Antonio, and Bandera, TX, we perform a comprehensive eye exam to determine exactly how your eyes need to be corrected, while also screening for common health problems like glaucoma.
Deciding What Else You Need from Your Lenses
After your exact prescription is determined, it is important to consider what else you need from your lenses, because getting your glasses right is as much about eye care as it is about vision. At Vision Plus, our optometrists and opticians will talk to you about your lifestyle to determine what types of lens protection, material, and coatings will be most beneficial to you.
Some popular lens materials include plastic lenses, polycarbonate lenses, which are built for safety and are great for those who play a lot of sports. High-index plastic lenses are great for those who may have a stronger prescription and need a lighter, thinner lens.
Some of the most common coatings added to glasses include
- Anti-scratch coatings are standard for all plastic and high index plastic glasses to keep scratches at bay and maintain clarity.
- UV-blocking - helps protect against ultraviolet radiation that can speed the progression of harmful eye conditions including macular degeneration and cataracts.
- Anti-reflective coatings help to block reflections that can interfere with how clearly you can see out of your lenses. This can be especially beneficial at night.
- Photochromic lenses that become darker or clearer depending on the level of sunlight.
Finding the Frames to Look Your Best
Eyeglass lenses do not do you much good without frames, and at Vision Plus we can help guide you in selecting frames that are a shape that compliments your face shape and features. We also give you lots of options whether you are on a tight budget or want to celebrate your favorite designer.
