Eyeglasses at Williston Optometry
Even in today's world of state-of-the-art LASIK surgery and advanced contact lenses, eyeglasses are still a popular choice for vision correction. If you're struggling with your eyesight due a refractive error, and you're looking for a solution that's both effective and stylish, look no further than Williston Optometry. Our Williston, VT, clinic can provide you with a dizzying variety of options to help you achieve your ideal vision correction in a way that suits your personal style.
Eyeglass Lens Choices and Add-Ons
People who need eyeglasses typically have a refractive error such as myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, or astigmatism. In each of these conditions, abnormalities in the eye prevent incoming light from being refracted properly, causing some aspect of vision to seem blurry instead of clear. Eyeglasses work by altering the way light is refracted before it reaches your eyes. Our visual acuity testing and individualized prescriptions allow us to fabricate eyeglasses lenses that compensate perfectly for your specific refractive error.
The two main types of lenses are single-vision lenses and multifocal lenses. Single-vision lenses are fully dedicated to correcting vision at one distance level, such as near, intermediate, or distance vision. Multifocals such as bifocals, trifocals, and progressive lenses can correct vision at multiple distance levels, which is necessary if you suffer from the age-related focusing issue known as presbyopia.
Williston Optometry offers eyeglasses lenses in several types of plastic, as glass is too heavy and shatter-prone to see much modern-day use. You may prefer budget-friendly CR-39, shatter-resistant polycarbonate, or super-slim, super-light Trivex or high-index lenses. We can also provide some helpful add-ons such as:
- Tinting to boost contrast or achieve other specific effects
- Coatings to deter fogging or scratches
- Additional UV protection
- Anti-glare options, including polarization
