Making a choice regarding your eyewear goes beyond good vision and says something about who you are. Your decision affects how others see you and how you see yourself. With so many different styles to choose from, getting the right look for your face and your lifestyle can be a challenge.

Contact Lenses

Buying contact lenses is not as easy as it used to be. What is better dailies or monthlies? What contacts prevent dry eyes? With the huge variety of choices available it is helpful to have the expertise of our staff to explain the benefits of each style and brand. The increase in choices means that people who previously experienced discomfort wearing contacts now have a wide variety of choices that were designed to address the discomfort they previously experienced.

Sunglasses and Sunwear

Whether you are looking for prescription or non prescription sunglasses, we have a great selection to choose from. Sunglasses are highly recommended by our optometrists as they protect the eyes during both summer and winter months from the damaging UV rays. Add to that the improved safety while driving and that they are a great fashion accessory, and sunglasses become a must have for all. Do children need sunglasses? Yes, children need to protect their eyes even more than adults.


Transition Lenses

Have you thought about sunglasses but hated the idea of carrying around yet another item in your purse or cluttering up your car? Do you always seem to misplace your sunglasses or forget them when you need them most?

If you answered yes, then transition lenses are a great choice. Transition lenses go darker the brighter it is outside, so when you are at home or in the office they look and act as any normal glasses do, but driving or being outdoors they “transition” into the role of prescription sunglasses. They offer 100% UV protection for your eyes, and since you always wear them, they are more likely to be worn than traditional sunglasses.
