When it comes to choosing eyeglass frames, every person’s needs are not the same. Typically, proper style and fit are top priorities. The size and shape of your face, eye color, hair color and other aspects can affect your choice. In order for you to choose the right frame, you need a good explanation of what constitutes a “proper fit.” This affects not only the look of your glasses, but also their comfort and how well you are able to see. At Howerton Eye Clinic, our experienced eye care professionals have received special training to help you select the right frames, as well as the best style and brand of glasses or contacts that will fit your lifestyle.

Lens Technologies Available to Our Patients:

  • Crizal® Anti-Reflective Lenses – These lenses are ideal for nighttime driving since they are designed to virtually eliminate glare, including glare from headlights.
  • Varilux® Progressive Lenses – These no line multifocal lenses are very similar to natural vision. Vision is typically clear at all viewing distances. They are great for people wearing multi-focal lenses for the first time.
  • Transition® Lenses – Transition lenses automatically darken in sunlight and lighten indoors. Because of this one pair of glasses can be used for indoor and outdoor wear.
  • Xperio® Polarized Lenses – Xperio lenses completely eliminate indirect reflection as a result of snow and water, for example. This increases depth perception and visual acuity. Xperio lenses can be worn while participating in many types of sports, such as skiing and boating. In fact, they are an excellent choice for those activities.
  • DriveWear® – The first changeable type of polarized lenses, DriveWear lenses automatically react to various weather and light conditions. They are designed to darken outdoors and behind the windshield of vehicles.
  • High Index (Thin Lenses) – High Index lenses are significantly lighter and thinner compared to other types of lenses. They weigh less and are very comfortable to wear.
  • U.V. Filter – These lenses are required following cataract removal. They protect the retina from the damaging effects of ultraviolet light.
  • Polycarbonate Lenses – These lenses are made of thin, light material, but are very impact-resistant. They are required for children under age 14.
  • Bifocal lenses – Formerly the most common type of multifocal lens, bifocals provide clear vision up close and at a distance.
  • Computer Lenses – These lenses help correct vision when you are viewing a computer video display terminal (VDT).
