At Bespoke Eye Care in Dallas, we provide a full range of eye care services to our patients. Our doctor performs comprehensive eye exams to assess the health of your eyes. If you’ve noticed a change in your vision, we can help you find a solution. We can diagnose the cause of your changed vision and determine whether corrective eyewear is a good option for you.
If you have a refractive vision error, you have a lot to consider when it comes to the type of eyewear you want. There are a lot of factors that go into eyewear. The frames are usually the first thing people think about when selecting glasses, but frames aren’t the most important part of eyeglasses. The lenses are where the magic is.
Lenses for eyeglasses can be made from several types of material, such as plastic, polycarbonate, and glass. The type of lens you choose will depend on your lifestyle. Our optometrist will help ask you a series of questions that will help narrow down your options.
There are glasses for nearsightedness or farsightedness alone. There are also glasses that correct for both near and distance vision in one lens. These glasses are called bifocals. While you can still buy old style bifocals, a newer type of lens has been developed. Progressive lenses. Progressive lenses gradually transition between levels of vision correction without any visible lines. It can take some time to adjust to this type of lens, since your eye has to actively look for the corrections in the lens in order to see clearly.
Another consideration is sunglasses. Some people buy a pair of prescription sunglasses. There are also transition lenses. The technical name for this type of lens is photochromic lens. The lenses are just regular lenses when you’re indoors. When you step into the sunlight, the lenses automatically darken.
It can be difficult to find the perfect eyeglasses frames to fit your unique taste, budget, and lifestyle. Before you begin browsing for frames, check with our optometrist to be sure you’re looking at frames that will hold the appropriate size lenses. Some of the bifocal or progressive lenses must be fit into larger frames. Frames can be made of metal or plastic, or they can be frameless. Something to think about is the way the lenses sit on your nose. Some have a soft plastic that rests comfortably on your nose. Others have riveted plastic feet that can pinch your nose.
