Frames

When it comes to glasses, we assist our patients in their choices to not only to see well, but to look good. That’s why we offer a wide selection of stylish frames. Once you’ve chosen the frames you love, our certified opticians will help you determine which lenses are right for you, taking each patient’s individual needs into consideration.

We are proud to have a variety of frames to choose from. Our inventory is always being updated so you are sure to find that perfect frame. Here are a few of the designers that we offer.



Lens Options

There are many options when it comes to choosing lenses and literally hundreds of designs of progressive lenses. We have a great staff of certified opticians to help you find the options that work best for your lifestyle and your prescription.

High Definition Digital Progressive Lenses

Bifocals or Trifocals have just two or three lens powers (areas of focus), progressive lenses have multiple lens powers that provide a seamless progression for all viewing distances.

With progressive lenses, you can look up to see clearly in the distance. You also can see at intermediate levels to view your computer or music. You can read and do close up work comfortably through the near zone of the lenses.

The newest technology of lenses today is high-definition digital. This technology is a result of a digital process while making your progressive lenses customized to your prescription. The lab will take into consideration not only your personalized prescription, but your face shape and the shape of the frame that you choose. The result is that high-definition lenses may provide sharper image quality, better peripheral vision, improved contrast sensitivity with less glare.

Digital lenses are available for single vision distance, computer, and reading prescriptions too!

Our opticians are trained on a regular basis to teach you the newest technology in all lenses and lens options.

Lens Material and Coating Options

High Index Lenses

Are thinner and lighter than standard plastic. High index lenses have the benefit of providing scratch resistance and UV protection without a tint. High Index lenses also minimize edge thickness on the lens.

Polycarbonate Lenses

Are similar to high index plastic lenses and they have the added advantage of being extremely resistant to impact. We recommend polycarbonate lenses for safety glasses and for all children’s eyewear.

Anti-Reflective Lenses

Have a treatment that results in more clear vision with less eye fatigue by diminishing glare and reducing reflections. Cosmetically others can clearly see your eyes instead of any glare or reflection off your lens. New technology guarantees that your anti-reflective lenses will resist scratches and be easier to clean. Most anti-reflective coatings also have a 1–2 year scratch warranty. Please ask our opticians about this warranty.

Polarized Lenses

Reduce the intensity of the sun’s glare and allow only certain light waves to pass through, resulting in less irritation, clearer vision and better depth and color perception. While regular sunglasses or tinted lenses only diminish the light that comes through the lens, polarized lenses reduce reflections off horizontal surfaces like roads and water. These are wonderful for people who spend time on our lakes or river and especially good for fishing!

Transitions™ Lenses

Are technically advanced lenses that adjust as the light changes, darkening in outdoor light and quickly becoming clear indoors, so eyes are protected and comfortable in every environment. Transitions have a new technology that combines the transitions lens and a polarized lens to create Transitions Adaptive Lenses.

Shamir Golf™ Lenses

Are custom-made for golfers! Unlike standard progressives, the three visions zones are specifically tailored to the needs of golfers to maximize their viewing: the scorecard in their hand, the ball at their feet and the green in the distance.
