What options are available when purchasing frames and lenses?
Patients have more choices than ever before when it comes to choosing prescription eyewear. We provide a wide range of eyewear products from value-based to luxury. What's more is insurance and managed vision care benefits often cover some or all of the cost of glasses and/or contact lenses. No matter your price point, style preference, or eye health needs, you can find the right eyewear for you.
What is the difference between reading glasses and prescription glasses?
Reading glasses and sun reading glasses – also called readers – are ready-to-wear glasses with a lens power, magnification or strength, typically ranging from +1 to +4, to aid with up-close reading. They are a great option for those who don't mind slipping on a different pair of glasses for up-close viewing, or those who only require one prescription. Similarly, readers for outdoor use are available, offering protection against the sun's harmful UV rays. Both are available "over-the-counter" without a prescription or Rx from your eyecare provider. On the contrary, prescription glasses are only available with an individualized lens prescription or Rx. No matter the state of your eye health, make sure to visit your eyecare provider to ensure you're getting the right eyewear for your unique eyecare needs.
