Eyeglasses are removable lenses used to correct vision impairments. Glasses are available only by prescription from an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Glasses are not only a solution for vision impairments, but also fashionable accessories for people of all ages. In most cases, a patient selects a frame – usually made of metal or plastic, and then a technician sculpts prescriptive lenses to perfectly fit the frame.
Eyes on Wheaton offers a large selection of hand picked frame lines. We are confident you will find glasses that not only look great, but that allow you to see great too. A lot of the lines we offer are hand made, and of excellent quality. We also strive to provide an array of unique options, to fit every face shape. With a lab on site, we are happy to provide most glasses same day!
Our office staff will educate you on the lenses your doctor recommends. In most cases, vision insurance will provide a certain allowance towards your frame and lenses. Our office offers top of the line products made from Essilor. They're designed with your daily activities in mind, to provide sharp, natural vision at most distances.
Anti-reflective treatment (AR)- This treatment is very important for all glasses wearers. It provides protection against glare, scratches, smudges, dust, water, and UV light. This feature helps make your eyes feel more comfortable while driving at night, and also reduces the effects of glare coming off of a computer screen or cell phone.
Eyezen/Anti-Fatigue- These lenses aim to reduce eye strain and stress to patients who are on any electronic device throughout their day. The lens appears no different than a standard lens. It also protects the eyes from harmful blue light rays that are emitted from computer screens.
Transitions- Transition lenses allow you to have the best of both worlds in one pair of glasses. When you step outside, the glasses will change to a tinted lens, providing you with protection against the sun and light sensitivity. While indoors, the glasses will reverse back to your ophthalmic lens.
