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.

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.

When perusing our designer eyewear and sunglass collections at Vision Center, you may notice that we carry an extensive line of boutique eyewear designers and not any old licensed brand. We have found that boutique eyewear designers offer quality materials and superior value, whereas more streamlined and “budget” eyewear is made of poor materials with very basic and unappealing design. Our commitment is to providing the latest in eyewear trends, but also to sell it all for a fair price that’ll work with any budget.

Bayshore Eye Care

Featuring state of the art equipment and staffing friendly optometrists, Vision Center offers eye care to all ages, from infants to adolescents to adults. We provide Bayshore eye exams that are suitable to child and assess the healthy development of their eye sight. It is suggested that child receive a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year and their annual school vision screening is a poor substitute to visiting a licensed optometrist. While vision screenings at school may detect common refractive problems like nearsightedness or farsightedness, they may not catch everything including astigmatism or blurred vision. These eye problems need to be properly diagnosed during a comprehensive eye exam with at trained professional at any of our five Vision Center locations through out Long Island and Queens.

Just like any other accessory, choosing the right pair of eyeglasses for your lifestyle, personality, and budget can be a difficult decision. At our five Vision Center locations, we have frame specialists and opticians who can help you make this decision. Our Long Island Optical Stores carry a large inventory of designer frames and sunglasses, so when you visit us in Whitestone, Farmingdale, Bayshore, Moriches or Greenlawn, you can rest assured that you’ll not only receive excellent customer service, but you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.

Here are a few tips for finding the perfect eyeglass style and shape for your face. The frame shape should contrast slightly with your face shape; for instance, it is not recommended that you buy a round frame if you have a circular or round face, or that you buy a square or angled frame, for a square face. Frame size is also important, as it should be proportionally balanced to the size of your face. When trying on glasses, look for symmetry, you want your eye to be in the center of the frame for optimal functionality and visual range.When it comes to picking a color for your eyeglass frame, look to accentuate your best feature. And lastly, but most importantly, frame quality above all else should meet your ophthalmic requirements.

Almost every eyeglass wearer would benefit from a pair of prescription sunglasses. There are two options you can select from for sunglass lenses: Polarization and Tint.  Polarized lenses are usually the best choice, as they offer glare protection, which cuts through blinding reflections off water, snow, or any other reflective surface. Tinted lenses come in a wide range of color options, unlike polarized lenses. Ask our Long Island opticians for more information on prescription sunglasses and lens choice.

At our Vision Center locations throughout Long Island and Queens, we carry an extensive line of designer eyewear, including frames and sunglasses. We selected our collection of high-quality frames to reflect the latest in eyewear style, fashion, and functionality. Whatever your age or vision correction needs, we have something in stock for you. Some of the designer brands we carry are Bulgari, Calvin Klein, Carrera, Coach, Dolce & Gabanna, Dior, Guess, Prada, Ray Ban, Silhouette, and Versace.
