Lenses and Frames
A brief description of the types of lenses and variety of frames available at OC Eye Care in Newport.
Selecting your lenses and frames is a very personal choice. A wide variety of options are available that can be tailored to suit not only your medical needs but also your fashion preferences.
Highlight your features, play with color, and augment vision for different functions such as reading, driving and playing sports. With all the choices available, the experience can be daunting without the right guidance. OC Eye Care in Newport makes the choice easy.
Design, material and treatments are the three components that make up a pair of prescription lenses. It is important to select the right combination of these elements for your particular visual needs and lifestyle choices.
The knowledgeable staff at OC Eye Care will consider long-term wearing comfort, style, features and function when suggesting a new pair of eyeglasses. In this way, the eyeglasses become as unique as the person taking them home.
Selecting the right eyeglass lens depends largely on your lifestyle and what you plan on using the glasses for. Our opticians keep up to date with the latest in lens technologies, and can recommend the very best lenses for your active lifestyle. With many lens styles and materials to choose from, OC Eye Care is confident that our patients’ visual, comfort, and lifestyle can be addressed.
When choosing a frame, the shape and size of the frame should enhance the color of your eyes, complement your skin tone and play up the best features of your face shape. Further, fashion always plays a part in selecting an eyeglass frame; so while it should compliment the features it must also be an expression of the person wearing it. OC Eye Care works hard to keep fashionable, durable, and comfortable frames in stock; and should a patient be unable to find what they are looking for, resources are available to find that perfect frame.
Most people need more than one pair of glasses, such as one for everyday wear and another for outdoor activities. Having different style frames for different activities and moods makes wearing glasses more functional, and more fun!
With the wide variety of lens options available, you can customize your sunglasses to meet your visual, protection, performance and comfort needs. Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present even on cloudy days. Quality sunwear provides 100 percent UV protection and can significantly reduce the risk of vision problems caused by sunlight such as cataracts and retinal damage.
Glare, an issue that makes it difficult to see objects clearly by washing out colors and details, can be combated by polarized lenses. Looking at a scene with polarized lenses, you’ll notice the colors are deeper, richer and bolder, and details are clearer and more distinct. Polarized lenses also help reduce squinting, which, in turn, reduces eye fatigue, tension and eyestrain.
Wearers of prescription glasses and sunglasses commonly encounter annoying glare and reflections caused by light bouncing off their lenses. This glare makes it more difficult to see, especially at night. Anti-reflective lenses reduce these reflections allowing more light to pass through to your eyes.
All lens surfaces naturally reflect light and this reflection can prevent between seven to 14 percent of the light needed for optimal vision. Wearing non-AR lenses is like trying to read a book in a dimly lit room. Since AR lenses allow more light to reach your eyes by reducing reflections, it’s like turning up the lights in a room, making it easier to see.
Lenses and frames are a necessary and personal choice. The opticians at OC Eye Care in Newport, Oregon have the experience fit eyewear for you that is not only flattering, but provide the very best optical correction for your sight.
