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.

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

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.

Our optical departments at Vision Centers of Long Island and Queens take pride in offering top quality, high fashion frames and the latest in lens technology to patients with all different budgets and price ranges.

If you are getting glasses for the first time or changing your prescription, please allow two to three weeks for your eyes to adjust to the new lenses. Many times, our patients will complain of mild dizziness, headaches, or even slight nausea while their eyes adjust to their new glasses, but all of these symptoms are normal. If they persist however, please contact our Bay Shore eyeglass store. Often times, our patients will put off updating their optical prescription, which means for months, their eyes have adjusted to using a weaker prescription and not seeing clearly. When their prescription is finally updated, it may seem as though their vision is “too perfect,” their optical prescription “too strong,” but given a couple of weeks, your eyes will adjust to the higher lenses prescribed by your Bay Shore optometrist at Vision Center.

When you do need a new optical prescription that doesn’t mean you’ll need a new eyeglass frame as well. Though many patients of Vision Center use the opportunity to getting new lenses to shop for new designer eyewear in our Bay Shore optical store, we can often reuse your current frames. Depending on the kind of frame and the condition, our opticians can asses their suitability for reuse. Metal eyeglass frames normally have a two-year life span, but new eyeglass materials have increased the longevity of eyewear products, so reusing your frames may be an option.
