What should I expect when getting eyeglasses?

During your comprehensive eye exam, we will test your visual acuity, check your eye health, and evaluate your refractive error to understand your prescription lens needs. There are two primary types of eyeglass lenses: single-vision lenses (which help you see up close or at a distance) and multifocal lenses (which combine lenses to correct multiple vision needs).

Once your ideal prescription is identified, our team will assist you in finding the best eyewear options to match your lifestyle needs, desires, and budget. Our on-site optical shop includes a variety of different designer frames and lens options so that you can select eyeglasses in person. While our team will identify your prescription, you will have the freedom to choose the color, look, and shape of your frames.
