Eyewear Q & A
What are my options for fashion eyeglass frames?
Goetzinger Eye Institute offers a wide range of the best fashion frames from brands including:
- Bottega Veneta®
- Jimmy Choo®
- Dolce and Gabbana®
Fashion frames come in a wide range of colors and styles. Whether you’re looking for bold frames, near-invisible frames, screwless hinge frames, or something else, an eye care expert at Goetzinger Eye Institute can help you find something that’s flattering as well as functional.
What are my options for eyeglass lenses?
Today’s lenses are amazingly advanced, and you reap the benefits with the clearest vision possible. Glasses aren’t necessarily made of glass today. In fact, many lenses are made from tough high-index plastics, polycarbonate lenses with super impact resistance, ultralight Trivex lenses, and super thin lenses, among many more options.
If you have multiple vision issues, you can opt for the latest no-line bifocals with Prizm™ lens technology. They’re incredibly easy-to-wear, don’t require constant switching of eyeglasses, and have no telltale bifocal line.
Goetzinger Eye Institute also offers Transitions® lenses, the No. 1 photochromic lens brand in the world. Transitions lenses automatically darken when you move outdoors, and then lighten when you move back indoors. If you need any significant vision correction, Transitions can be perfect because you need only one pair of glasses rather than both prescription glasses and sunglasses.
What types of lens treatments are available?
The lens treatments at Goetzinger Eye Institute protect against the most common hazards to your glasses, and they can truly improve your experience wearing glasses. You can choose blue blocker, scratch resistant, glare resistant, and UV protection lens coatings based on your needs, preferences, and lifestyle.
Should I consider contact lenses instead of glasses?
It really depends on your preferences and needs. Some men and women can’t wear contacts due to chronic dry eyes, repeated eye infections, corneal scarring, cataracts, or other conditions that would make contacts uncomfortable.
Some patients prefer contacts because they’re less obvious than glasses, but others love to make a fashion statement with their glasses.
Goetzinger Eye Institute recommends every patient who wears contact lenses has a pair of backup glasses in case of emergency. If you wear contacts, you may have periods when you can’t wear your lenses due to temporary dry eyes, an eye infection, irritation from computer vision syndrome, or for some other reason. In those times, it’s very convenient to simply switch over to glasses temporarily.
