We also offer an array of stylish prescription sunglasses. Quality sunglasses are important for everyone to wear, including babies, children, and adults, regardless of whether vision correction is needed or not, as they protect the eyes from damaging UV rays. Prescription sunglasses will ensure you have clear, comfortable, and protected vision while driving or enjoying time outdoors.
There are two components to your eyeglasses: the frames and the lenses. We carry a diverse selection of eyeglass frame options, including Kate Spade, Coach, Marc Jacobs, Silhouette, Cole Haan, Esprit, and more! We also offer the latest in lens technology to ensure your visual needs are met.
Your optician at Spectrum Eye Care will ask you questions about your life – what you do for work, whether you have a commute or not, and hobbies – and will take your prescription into account when recommending eyeglass frames and lenses. Shopping for eyeglasses can feel overwhelming, but our experienced team is here to guide you and help you make the right choices.
Because your vision is important to us and we want you to love your glasses, we guarantee our glasses. If there is an issue or you feel you cannot see well, please let us know as soon as possible. We will bring you back to figure out the issues and get it corrected.
Eyeglass frame materials and shapes vary, and the right pair of eyeglass frames should accommodate the lenses required to correct your vision. Frame materials include acetate, metal, plastic, titanium, and wood texture. Frame shapes include rectangular, square, brow line, oval, large, aviator, round, and cat-eye. Frame types include full rimmed, semi-rimless, rimless, low bridge, and wire.
The eyeglass lenses and lens treatments you choose should help you see clearly in all facets of your life, including driving, using a computer, reading a book, looking at your phone, playing sports, and more.
Eyeglass lens types include:
- Single vision lenses: These lenses have one dioptric power used throughout the entire lens. They are used to correct vision for both near and far distances.
- Bifocal lenses: These lenses contain two prescriptions that have a dividing line between them. The top of the lens corrects for farsightedness and the bottom corrects for nearsightedness.
- Trifocal lenses: These lenses include three prescriptions separated by lines and correct faraway, intermediate, and near vision.
- Progressive lenses: These lenses also offer multiple prescriptions in one lens, but they are line-free, offering a smooth transition when shifting your view between the prescriptions.
Eyeglass lens materials can include polycarbonate, trivex, and high index plastic. Our lenses can be treated for added benefits including UV-blocking treatment, photochromic treatment, scratch-resistant coating, and glare control coating to make your vision experience even more comfortable.
We offer the highest quality lenses and lens treatments, including the following:
Crizal No Glare Lenses provide you with superior protection against glare, scratches, smudges, and UV light.
Transitions Light Intelligent Lenses fit every lifestyle and every age. Not only do they adjust from fully clear indoors to the perfect tint outdoors, but they also block dangerous UV rays and filter Harmful Blue Light, which can be found outdoors and from digital devices.
Varilux progressive lenses provide sharp vision at every distance—even in dimly lit conditions—that eliminates the blurriness, off-balance feeling, and low-light issues of ordinary progressive lenses. Bifocal lenses only allow you to clearly see far away and up close. Objects at arm’s length will still appear blurry. Additionally, there is an abrupt change between the near and far viewing areas. Varilux progressive lenses provide sharp vision and smooth transitions at any distance.
We carry a diverse and high-quality collection of sunglasses which will protect your eyes from damaging UV rays and enable you to experience clear, comfortable vision when you’re driving, playing sports, or engaging in any sort of outdoor activity.
We are proud to carry many top brands in our optical, including Maui Jim sunglasses, which are not only very stylish, but feature PolarizedPlus2 technology which reduces the impact of the sun’s harsh glare while offering relief from several long-term health risks.
