Glasses are one of the most common ways of correcting refractive errors. The most common refractive errors are myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, and presbyopia. The refractive errors that are determined by your optometrist at your comprehensive eye exam help determine what type of glasses/lenses you require to see clearly.
Your glasses prescription is determined by one of our Blaine Eye Clinic optometrists who work closely with our opticians. Our opticians are responsible for helping you find a glasses frame that fits your face, feels comfortable, and meets you style needs, but they’re also responsible for ensuring the lenses that go in the frame match the prescription found by your doctor and help meet the visual demands you need in your day to day.
For some patients, that means a single vision pair of glasses that help a patient see more clearly up close or far away. For others it may mean a pair of bifocal or progressive addition lenses (PALs/Progressives.) For others still, it might mean a pair of non-prescription blue light blocking glasses or prescription sunglasses.
Whatever your needs, our staff at Blaine Eye Clinic are trained to help you find the best solution for your visual demands and help you to select the best materials and lens coatings required to help you feel confident in your vision.
