If you are going to be getting a new pair of glasses, you want to be sure that they contain the very best eyeglass lenses to work with your prescription. At Edward Soss, OD, our San Francisco optician will make sure that your new eyeglasses fit you perfectly, and that you know about all of the eyeglass lens options available to you.
If you are tired of wearing your contact lenses all the time, or simply need new eyeglasses, our frame experts will be happy to help you find eyeglass frames that work with your face shape, prescription needs, fashion sense, and budget. Your glasses not only help you to see clearly, but today they are also an important fashion accessory. But having the right eyeglass lenses in your glasses can go a long way toward making your eyeglasses more attractive, more functional, and even more comfortable. Our San Francisco optician will talk to you about the different lens options we have available and let you know which will work best with your eyeglass prescription. If you have a strong eyeglass prescription, Trivex lenses may work best for you. They are extremely lightweight and thin. They also are impact-resistant. They may even provide you with better vision correction. Progressive lenses allow you to have two or more different prescriptions in each lens. They have no line of delineation between lens strengths, and are very popular for patients who want reading glasses incorporated into their regular eyeglasses. Polycarbonate lenses have built-in UV protection, and are impact-resistant. They are great for athletes as well as for children’s eyeglasses. Aspheric lenses are thinner and flatter and can be great for certain prescriptions which are stronger; they provide a much wider field of vision for wearers, and may even improve peripheral vision. Photochromic lenses will darken when exposed to sunlight.
