Correcting Your Vision With Glasses and Contacts
Glasses and contact lenses correct refractive errors by adding or subtracting focusing power to your cornea and lens. The power needed to focus images directly on your retina is measured in diopters. This measurement is also known as your eyeglass prescription.
We provide our patients with a complete satisfaction guarantee. We provide 90 days of coverage for doctor prescription changes and 30 days for lens-type or non-adapt/ frame-style change. All of our eyeglasses are warranted for one year from date of purchase against any manufacturer defects. This does not cover accidental damage, scratches, lost or stolen eyeglasses. We offer complimentary cleanings and adjustments for the lifetime of your eyeglasses. Due to lab fees there will be a $50 cancellation fee applied to orders that are cancelled after prescription lens process has been started.
We offer discounts for most insurance plans, including: AARP, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Coast to Coast, Tricare, United Health Care, Cigna, Health Partners Plus, hospital and medical employees, as well as city / county / state / federal employees. We are an insurance provider for eyeglasses with Medicare and Vision Service Plan (VSP).
Single Vision – these lenses have a single viewing area for one specific vision correction.
Progressive – these lenses provide all the benefits of bifocals while also offering clear vision at all distances, including intermediate (arm’s length or computer). Cosmetically, they appear to be single vision lenses, so no one knows you’re wearing bifocals.
Flat-top Bifocals – these lenses correct for two vision corrections in one lens (distance and near).
Trifocals – these lenses have an added bifocal line to provide clear vision at arm’s length distance.
Anti-reflective – coatings that are effective for reducing eye fatigue and improved vision for night driving. Vision is improved with an anti-reflective coating by five-to-eight percent.
Transitions – lenses that are clear indoors, and turn dark outdoors.
Polarized – exciting sunglass lenses that eliminate reflective glare. They are great for fishermen, golfers, for driving and all types of outdoor activities.
UV Protection – a specific treatment available for plastic lenses to block out harmful UV light rays.
Scratch Protection – special coatings that have been developed to protect your lenses from scratching due to normal wear.
If you have myopia, your cornea and lens have too much focusing power, bending light rays to meet at a point in front of the retina. Glasses and contacts compensate for this condition by subtracting power from the eye’s natural focus and allowing light rays to focus further back on the retina. If you have myopia, your prescription will be negative, for example, -4.25 diopters.
If you have hyperopia, glasses and contacts add focusing power, causing light rays to bend more as they enter the eye. This process moves the focal point back to the retina, allowing for clear vision. If you have hyperopia, your prescription will be positive, for example, +4.25 diopters.
If you have astigmatism, the shape of the glass lens compensates for the uneven corneal curve and focuses the light rays to a single point on the retina.
