Lenses and Frames

A brief description of the types of lenses and variety of frames available at C&R Vision Center in Victor.

Selecting your lenses and frames is a very personal choice. A wide variety of options are available that can be tailored to suit not only your medical needs but also your fashion preferences.

Highlight your features, play with color, and augment vision for different functions such as reading, driving and playing sports. With all the choices available, the experience can be daunting without the right guidance. C&R Vision Center in Victor makes the choice easy.

Need an idea of what frame to choose? C&R offers a wide selection of options, including both sunglasses and eyeglasses, in the most popular brands. Stop in to browse on your own, or ask one of our licensed opticians to point you in a direction, and find a frame that is your true match.

Eyeglasses

Design, material and treatments are the three components that make up a pair of prescription lenses. It is important to select the right combination of these elements for your particular visual needs and to always consult your eye care professional.

The knowledgeable staff at C&R Vision Center will consider long-term wearing comfort, style, features and function when suggesting a new pair of eyeglasses. The eyeglasses become as unique as the person taking them home.

Eyeglass Lenses

Selecting the right eyeglass lens depends largely on its function.  From single vision lenses to computer lenses to progressive lenses, and in materials such as polycarbonate, hi index, and trivex, we are happy to help you find what best suits your needs. Regardless of your situation, your eye care provider can help determine what types of lenses will work best for you in terms of comfort, function and design.

We offer many high quality brands such as Crizal, Varilux, Transitions, Nikon, XperioUV, Shamir and more!

Frame Styles

When choosing a frame, the shape and size of the frame should enhance the color of your eyes, complement your skin tone and play up the best features of your face shape.

Most people need more than one pair of glasses, such as one for everyday wear and another for outdoor activities. Having different style frames for different activities and moods makes wearing glasses more fun.

Sunglasses

With the wide variety of lens options available, you can customize your sunglasses to meet your visual, protection, performance and comfort needs. Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present even on cloudy days. Quality sunwear provides 100 percent UV protection and can significantly reduce the risk of vision problems caused by sunlight such as cataracts and retinal damage.

Glare, an issue that makes it difficult to see objects clearly by washing out colors and details, can be combated by polarized lenses. Looking at a scene with polarized lenses, you’ll notice the colors are deeper, richer and bolder, and details are clearer and more distinct. Polarized lenses also help reduce squinting, which, in turn, reduces eye fatigue, tension and eyestrain.

Anti-Reflective Lenses

Wearers of prescription glasses and sunglasses commonly encounter annoying glare and reflections caused by light bouncing off their lenses. This glare makes it more difficult to see, especially at night. Anti-reflective lenses reduce these reflections allowing more light to pass through to your eyes.

All lens surfaces naturally reflect light and this reflection can prevent between seven to 14 percent of the light needed for optimal vision. Wearing non-AR lenses is like trying to read a book in a dimly lit room. Since AR lenses allow more light to reach your eyes by reducing reflections, it’s like turning up the lights in a room, making it easier to see.

Computer Lenses

With “screen time” being so prevalent nowadays, and the effects of “blue light” on your eyes being a topic of discussion, sometimes a pair of computer lenses may be your best option to decrease eye strain and fatigue, and give your eyes a well-deserved break. There are different adjustments, including coatings and types of lenses, to give you your best, most comfortable vision while at the computer. Ask your provider if these are a good option for your lifestyle.

Contact Lenses

C&R Vision Center in Victor offers many options for contact lenses.

There are a number of reasons why you might prefer contact lenses to standard eyewear: a glasses-free look, hassle-free vision correction, wearing non-prescription sunwear and goggles, or the convenience of not having to worry about misplacing your glasses. If you have a high prescription or astigmatism, contact lenses may provide more enhanced vision correction than glasses. Today, you can even replace your bifocal glasses with bifocal contact lenses.

Your eye care provider can recommend the best contact lenses for you based on a complete eye examination and a review of your visual needs both at work and play. Since most people can wear more than one type of lens, it’s important to know what the choices are and the advantages and disadvantages to each.

Regardless of the type of contact lenses you wear, an annual eye exam is recommended to ensure the continued good health of your eyes.

Soft Lenses

These lenses are comfortable to wear and must be replaced monthly, weekly or daily depending on the type you choose. Soft lenses are often recommended for sports because they fit closer to the eye and are more difficult to dislodge. They can provide correction for most prescriptions including astigmatism. Today, with the introduction of newer materials like silicone hydrogels, which allow more oxygen to the eye, patients find it easier than ever to wear soft lenses comfortably.

Gas-Permeable (GP) Lenses

Made of moderately flexible plastics, GP lenses offer sharp vision and correct most vision problems. They are more durable than soft contact lenses and can be easier to handle and care for but require a longer adaptation period and consistent wear to maintain adaptation.

Multifocal Lenses

As we age, most people notice that reading vision becomes more difficult and find themselves needing to wear reading glasses. Available in both soft lenses and RGP lenses, multifocal contacts can correct both distance and near vision, giving patients freedom from being dependent on glasses for reading or the computer.

Color Contact Lenses

Enhance your eye color or even change it completely. Colored contact lenses are fun and come in a variety of colors for both light and dark eyes.

Silicone Hydrogels

Silicone hydrogel contacts are a higher quality material that offer increased oxygen permeability, so that the surface of the eye can breathe better and therefore could be healthier for your eyes than traditional contact lenses. They may also feel more hydrated and comfortable throughout the day.

Lenses and frames are a very necessary and personal choice.
