Lenses and Frames
A brief description of the types of lenses and variety of frames available at Osage Beach Family Eyecare.
Selecting your lenses and frames is a personal choice. A wide variety of options are available that can be tailored to suit not only your medical needs but also your fashion preferences.
Our opticians will help you to highlight your features, experiment with color, or maximize your vision when reading, driving or playing sports. The experience can be daunting without the right guidance–our opticians at Osage Beach Family Eyecare make the choice easy.
Design, material and lens treatments are the three components that make up a pair of prescription lenses. It is important to select the right combination of these elements for your particular visual needs and to always consult your eye care professional. The knowledgeable staff at Osage Beach Family Eyecare will consider long-term wearing comfort, style, features and function when suggesting a new pair of eyeglasses. The eyeglasses become as unique as the person taking them home.
Selecting the right eyeglass lens depends largely on its function. From single vision to progressive lenses, we are happy to help you find what best suits your needs. Regardless of your situation, your eye care provider can help determine what types of lenses will work best for you in terms of comfort, function and design.
When choosing a frame, the shape and size of the frame should enhance the color of your eyes, complement your skin tone and play up the best features of your face shape. Most people need more than one pair of glasses, such as one for everyday wear and another for outdoor activities. Having different style frames for different activities and moods makes wearing glasses more fun. At Osage Beach Family Eyecare, we offer a wide array of frame styles from designers such as Jimmy Choo, Swarovski, Vogue, Penguin, and many others–our opticians enjoy helping you find the frames that best suits your needs.
With the wide variety of lens options available, you can customize your sunglasses to meet your visual, protection, performance and comfort needs. Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present even on cloudy days. Quality sunwear provides 100 percent UV protection and can significantly reduce the risk of eye and vision problems caused by sunlight such as cataracts and retinal damage. Polarized lenses can reduce glare, which makes it difficult to see objects clearly by washing out colors and details. Looking at a scene with polarized lenses, you’ll notice the colors are deeper, richer and bolder, and details are clearer and more distinct. Polarized lenses also help reduce squinting, which, in turn, reduces eye fatigue, tension and eyestrain.
Wearers of prescription glasses and sunglasses commonly encounter annoying glare and reflections caused by light bouncing off their lenses. This glare makes it more difficult to see, especially at night. Anti-reflective lenses reduce these reflections allowing more light to pass through to your eyes. All lens surfaces naturally reflect light and this reflection can prevent between seven to 14 percent of the light needed for optimal vision. Wearing non-AR lenses is like trying to read a book in a dimly lit room. Because anti-reflective treated lenses allow more light to reach your eyes by reducing reflections, it’s like turning up the lights in a room, making it easier to see. Ask about your Crizal anti-glare, these are the elite AR lenses you will not be able to live without!
