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.
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.
Eye Glass 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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
