About 75% of adults use some sort of vision correction, whether it is eyeglasses, contact lenses, or glasses only to read or drive. This number has been increasing as the use of digital devices has grown in recent years. To get your glasses prescription, you will need to have an eye exam with your optometrist. These exams generally include a visual acuity test, as well as a cover test and refraction test. He or she may also check on the health of your eyes during this appointment. If you have had an exam within the last two years, you can simply contact your doctor to get a copy of your prescription.

Our helpful and knowledgeable staff is also available to answer any questions you may have about your vision insurance benefits.
Following your prescription, our dispensing opticians will determine the type of lenses that will work best for you. In addition to lenses, they can also make recommendations on the best eyeglass frames and lens coatings to suit your needs. Measurements of your eyes will be taken, including the distance between the center of the pupils (pupillary distance) and the distance between the eye surface and the lens (vertex distance). Once the lenses have been made, the dispensing optician will ensure that they have been made correctly. They can make adjustments to the frames, either by hand or using tools, to fit you properly and comfortably. When you receive a new pair of glasses, you’ll also receive instructions on how to best wear and care for them. If you need help on adjusting to your new prescription, they can also provide assistance with that.
