Moriches Eyeglass Store

Bifocals Moriches

At our Moriches eyeglass store, we will test your eyes in order to get you the prescription and glasses you need so you can see clearly again. Normally with age, you reach the point of not being able to read up close without extending your arms out to their limit, and you may need to consider single-vision reading glasses. In two main styles, you can get reading glasses in full frames, where the entire lens is made in the reading prescription, or half-eyes, the smaller “Ben Franklin” style glasses that sit lower down on your nose.
Full reading glasses are best for people who spend a lot of time concentrating on material close-up. If you try to look up and across the room through the reading lenses, everything will appear blurry. On the other hand, half-eye reading glasses allow you to look down and through the lenses for near work, and up and over them to see further away. The majority of customers at our Moriches eyeglass store who have never needed glasses before, will begin with a pair of reading glasses instead of bifocals, or no-line progressive lenses, which are normally a better choice if you need glasses for distance as well as near correction.

Some convenient accessories for temporary use at our Moriches eyeglass store, Vision Center, include tiny foldable readers that fit in small, pen-sized cases, and magnifiers that hang around your neck like a necklace. Also for reading, you may have seen plastic lenses mounted in credit card-sized holders that slip easily into your wallet. These are not good for reading a book but work well when trying to read a menu or a product label at the grocery store. Also available at our Moriches eyeglass store are tinted reading glasses with UV protection for wearing outdoors in the sun. A very popular type found in our optical gallery is the sunglass bifocal, that has a non-prescription upper half for seeing far away, and a reading prescription in the lower half for close up. Reading glasses can be custom-made for each individual at Vision Center rather than purchased “ready-made” at a drugstore. Most people do not have exactly the same prescription in both eyes, and almost everyone has a small amount of astigmatism correction in their prescriptions, so best to visit our Moriches eyeglass store for a customized prescription.

If you have a current eyeglass prescription and want to get your corrective lenses in a pair of sunglasses, or you are looking for non-prescription sunglasses, just come in any time and let our Farmingdale opticians assist you. If, on the other hand, you need a new or updated prescription, please call us and schedule an exam with our optometrist. Keep in mind that a yearly eye exam is suggested for all patients. First, even if you have eyeglasses right now, your vision needs do change over time and it is important to make sure that your new prescription sunglasses will be meeting your current vision needs. Also, being screened for common eye diseases is a good idea since symptoms are not always evident in the early stages of many of these diseases. And don’t forget how convenient it can be to have prescription sunglasses. Why switch between your corrective lenses and your shades constantly? And if you’re driving, you don’t want to have to choose between seeing the road sharply and shielding your eyes from the sun.

All of our sunglasses block out 100% of the dangerous UVA and UVB sun rays, protecting your eyes from damage. Also, avoid the harsh light when driving, at the beach, at the park, or wherever you are outside. Those are all good reasons to get a pair of sunglasses from our Farmingdale opticians. Now, let us give you a fun reason: select from among an array of fashionable sunglasses from names that you know. Just a few of the designers whose product we carry are Dior, Guess, Silhouette, Ray Ban, Prada, and Versace.

Our Farmingdale opticians carry a pair of sunglasses for every budget and every sense of style. Prescription or non-prescription, the perfect pair are waiting here for you.

Bayshore Eyeglass Store

Prescription Glasses 11706

At our Bayshore eyeglass store, we explains to all our patients that unlike an eye test, an optical prescription is not a straight measurement of your ability to see. It does not compare eyesight with someone who has perfect vision, the way an eye chart does. Instead, the numbers on your prescription are the specific power that is needed to correct your vision to normal. Basically, with an accurate optical prescription, corrective lenses in your glasses bend the light rays to focus more directly onto your retina. The amount of correction necessary is written as your prescription and is what is used to correct your vision.

Designer Eyeglass Frames 11706

If you wear glasses, you certainly know they help you to see better, but you may not know how they specifically correct your vision. Whether for nearsightedness or farsightedness, eyeglasses work in the same way. When the lens in your eyeglass is curved, it bends the light rays that hit your eyes, so you can see images clearly. The experts at our Bayshore eyeglass store, Vision Center, wants all of our patients to know that understanding how glasses correct your vision, begins with a basic understanding of how your eye works. At the back of your eye is your retina, which is a layer of cells that reacts to light. The reaction is sent to your brain, and your brain translates the cells activity into an image, or the thing that you actually see.

When you look at something, the light rays focus inside your eye, or come together. When you have perfect vision, the light rays focus directly on to the surface of your retina. Because the retina is curved, the image must also shrink, and needs to be curved, because the retina is curved. Your pupil and cornea are responsible for shrinking, focusing, and curving the image and if any of them have any irregularities, your vision becomes blurry. Eyeglass lenses are curved pieces of glass and the curvature of the lens bends the light rays as they move towards your eye. This helps the rays focus on your retina, instead of behind it or in front of it. Statistics show that over 160 million people in the United States alone wear corrective lenses and perfect vision is very rare. If you’re one of those 160 million people, come down to our Bayshore eyeglass store and shop for a new pair of eyeglasses to improve your daily vision.

Optical Store in Whitestone

We truly live in amazing times. These days, people who opt to use contact lenses for vision correction have a zoo of options before them. This means that more people can make the switch from conventional eyeglasses to contacts than ever before in the history of optometry! Believe it or not, even people with allergies, astigmatism and vision impairment requiring bifocal correction can find a pair of suitable contacts now. The contact lens inventory here at the Whitestone optical store, Vision Center, covers the full gamut of options too, and our eye care experts are pros when it comes to matching patients with the right lenses. Not sure what all is out there contact lens-wise? If you have a spare moment, we’d like to give you the whirlwind tour.

Whitestone Contact Lens Exam

Whitestone Contact Lens Exam

In the domain of contacts, there are two ways lenses can be classified. One way relates to whether lenses are hard or soft; the other relates to whether lenses need to be replaced relatively often or relatively frequently. In the category of lenses that are replaced infrequently, there is a further subdivision between lenses that need to be removed and cleaned every day, on the one hand, and lenses that are designed for continuous wear. Depending on your eyes’ unique needs, some styles will be better for you than others. (Someone with eye allergies, for example, may want to opt for soft lenses that are thrown away every day.) As far as vision correction goes, like we said above, modern lenses from Vision Center — our Whitestone optical store – are able to handle a wide variety of vision problems, including farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism.

Feeling a little overwhelmed by all the options you have to choose from? That’s totally understandable! Thankfully, you won’t have to make the decision on your own. You can be sure that we here at Vision Center, our Whitestone optical store, will help you wade through our expansive stock. Are you ready to give the old glasses and frames the boot? Why put off the big transition any longer? Call us or use the Vision Center website to schedule a comprehensive eye exam right now, and don’t forget to mention you’re interested in giving contacts a try!

Eyeglass Store Moriches

Eyeglass Store Moriches

Are you looking for a change in the way you correct your vision? While eyeglasses can be a comfortable and simple way to achieve clear vision, these frames can often get in the way of the lives which many of us seek to live. The latest advances in optical technology have led to great strides in prescription contact lenses, allowing for more optical conditions and greater severity of problems to be corrected than ever before. If you are curious about whether ophthalmic eyeglass frames or prescription contact lenses are right for you, you need only to visit your neighborhood Moriches eyeglass store at the welcoming and advanced offices of the Vision Center.

Ophthalmic Frames Moriches

Ophthalmic Frames Moriches

While eyeglasses can be a troublesome hindrance to some, many of these problems can simply be solved by customizing your frames and lenses to meet your unique needs. Today’s eyeglass frames can be made from many fashionable materials, as well as durable ones. Plastic reinforced frames can resist impact, while Memory Metal can truly roll with the punches to simply return to its original shape unscathed. Polycarbonate lenses can resist greater forces of impact than any other, and can be coated with photochromic material to protect your eyes in any light. You can find coatings today from your trusted Moriches eyeglass store to stop glare and even fog from impeding your sight.

Despite these advances, some of us may simply find better sight correction through prescription contact lenses. While many of us believe that contact lenses can only be used to correct common optical conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, the truth is that those with severe astigmatism and keratoconus often report clearer vision than ever with the use of rigid or gas permeable lenses. If you are tired of the look of eyeglasses, today’s contact lenses can give you a more youthful appearance with bifocal and multifocal contact lenses to effectively treat presbyopia and replace your bifocal eyeglasses. At your professional Moriches eyeglass store you can find a wide selection of soft and rigid contact lenses to give you clear vision without eyeglasses.

Contact lenses and eyeglasses have numerous advantages and disadvantages between them, and the question on which is right for you truly depends on the life you lead and your own personal and optical needs. Our welcoming and knowledgeable staff at your local Moriches eyeglass store at the Vision Center can help you find out which is right for you. We can also assist you in understanding your flex spending and insure you use these valuable dollars before the end of the year, which may just allow you to afford both options for your convenience. At the Vision Center our opticians work for you to help you find the perfect path to clear vision.

Opticians Whitestone

Opticians Whitestone

Many factors are taken into consideration when determining the type and shape of eyeglass lenses that suit you best. For example, a lens that curves inward, concave, is used to correct nearsightedness, while a lens that curves outward, convex, is used to correct farsightedness. An alteration in the shape of the cornea, or astigmatism, is normally corrected by a cylinder shaped lens. The eyeglass lens is a tool used at our Whitestone opticians, Vision Center, to focus light properly onto your retina. Of course, the type of lens recommended depends on the kind of vision difficulty you are having.

Progressive Lenses Whitestone

Progressive Lenses Whitestone

Progressive lenses are considered multifocal lenses that create a progression of lens power and can be compared to natural eyesight. Users of progressive lenses look straight ahead while looking in the distance, slightly down to see intermediate, and lower to see near. The process is smooth because there is no line separating the focal points. Aspheric lenses are ideal for strong prescriptions, because they are flatter and thinner and provide better vision than an ordinary lens. As technology progresses so do choices in eyeglass lenses and our Whitestone opticians will educate you on the best choice for your particular situation.

In the past, eyeglass lenses were made only of glass but today most eyeglasses are made of high-tech plastics. These new lenses are much lighter, do not break as easily, and can be treated with a filter to protect your eyes from damaging ultraviolet light. Polycarbonate lenses is a modern eyeglass lens that is recommended by our Whitestone opticians because they are lighter, thinner, and more scratch-resistant than glass lenses. These eyeglass lenses are shock-resistant and a good choice for people who participate regularly in sports, work in a job environment where their eyeglasses can be easily scratched or broken, and for children who may easily drop and scratch them.

Polycarbonate lenses also provide ultraviolet protection. Trivex lenses are made from a newer plastic with similar characteristics of polycarbonate lenses. Lightweight, thin, and impact-resistant, they may result in better vision correction than the polycarbonate lenses for some people. Whatever your situation, our dedicated staff at Vision Center are experts in their field and will provide you with the best solution for your needs so you can see things as clearly as possible.

Optical Store Farmingdale

Optical Store Farmingdale

At Vision Center, the number one Farmingdale optical store, our team of friendly, helpful staff members truly cares about your eye health and vision quality. Because we care so much, we make it a point to emphasize the importance of keeping your optical prescription up to date. Whether you wear contact lenses or prescription eyeglasses, you need to stay on top of your prescription and keep it accurate both for your own health and safety and the health of others.

Farmingdale Prescription Glasses

Farmingdale Prescription Glasses

Think about it: if your optical prescription is inaccurate, should you be driving? You can be putting others at risk by operating a vehicle without your vision being perfectly clear. In fact, you should not be really doing much of anything if your vision is not in tact as it normally is with a proper prescription. In addition, if you are using glasses or contact lenses with an inaccurate prescription, you can potentially damage your eyes and make your vision even worse. Using a prescription that is incorrect makes your eye muscles work harder than they should, causing eye strain. With eye strain often comes headaches and other uncomfortable symptoms. This can easily be avoided by visiting our Farmingdale optical store regularly for a comprehensive eye exam and adjustment of your prescription if necessary. How often you need to visit us for a check on your prescription depends on the individual. For younger patients that are still in school, you should visit us at least once a year as you are likely to have more frequent changes in your prescription. As you grow a bit older, you can usually visit us a little more sparingly, but this must be under the advisement of the experts at our Farmingdale optical store. For patients over the age of 60, the visits should go back to at least once a year, as changes in vision are likely to occur again.

If you are interested in learning more about your eye health and the related services available to you at our Farmingdale optical store, we encourage you to visit the Vision Center website. There you can find additional information about these topics and more. Should you have any questions or concerns that you feel we can help you with, do not hesitate in contacting us either by phone or online. We hope to see you soon at Vision Center.
