Why People Use Specialty Eyeglasses
Certain activities don’t lend themselves to wearing standard eyeglasses. As a result, many designers have developed different frames and lenses for specific circumstances. These specialty glasses were born out of a need to provide you with clear sight, but also withstand impact, fit under a bicycle helmet, resist fogging in wet conditions, and help you read newspapers and webpages with ease.
Ultimately, they’re built for the functions you need — but that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t fit your style at the same time!
Start with an
Eye Health Exam
Our expert eye doctors take the time during your eye exam to learn about your eye health and lifestyle before offering solutions. They’ll use some of the latest diagnostic and imaging technology to look for early signs of eye conditions and to produce an updated vision prescription. But they’ll also discuss how your eyewear fits into your work life and hobbies, which often benefit from specialty eyeglasses.
Get a Specialty
Two of the most important components of specialty eyeglasses are comfort and function, and our expert opticians will help ensure that they offer both. We’ll make sure your frames stay right where you want them while still feeling comfortable during your desired activities. We also offer upgrades for your lenses such as blue light or ultraviolet filters, scratch-resistant coatings, and impact-resistant materials.
