Why Choose Howerton Eye for Eyeglasses?

At Howerton Eye, we know your eyeglasses are important for your optical needs. Beyond that, your eyeglasses are an opportunity to express your style and personality, so finding the perfect set matters even more! When you visit the Optical Shop at our Southwest Austin office, a member of our team will provide expert knowledge and a thorough explanation to ensure you walk away with the “proper fit.”

What Constitutes Proper Fit?

During your visit to Howerton Eye, one of our eye care specialists will assess your unique needs before recommending eyeglass frames. We will consider your face shape, eye color, and hair color to help narrow down your choices. The next step will be for you to try on the eyeglasses. From here, your eye care specialist will consult you to assess the comfortability of the frames as well as their functionality for your vision needs.

Our Lens Technology is Available to You!

Eyeglasses can positively affect your everyday success—whether that’s at work, school, or driving to and from. Why limit your full potential? During your visit, ask us about our lens technologies and check out the full list below:

Anti-Reflective lenses are ideal for nighttime driving since they are designed to virtually eliminate glare, including glare from headlights.

These no line multifocal lenses are very similar to natural vision. The vision of these lenses is typically clear at all viewing distances. They are great for people wearing multifocal lenses for the first time.

Transition lenses automatically darken in sunlight and lighten indoors, allowing you to use one pair of glasses for indoor and outdoor wear.

Xperio lenses completely eliminate indirect reflection as a result of snow and water. This increases depth perception and visual acuity. Xperio lenses can be worn while participating in many types of sports, such as skiing and boating.

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 lenses are significantly lighter and thinner compared to other types of lenses. They weigh less and are very comfortable.

These lenses are required following cataract surgery. They protect the retina from the damaging effects of ultraviolet light.

Polycarbonate lenses are made of a thin, light material, but are impact-resistant. They are required for children under the age of 14.

Formerly the most common type of multifocal lens, bifocals provide clear vision up close and at a distance.

These lenses help correct vision when you are viewing a computer video display terminal (VDT).
