We also offer a wide selection of eyeglasses, emergency eye care, and a large selection of designer frames to fit every style and budget. However, there is much more to getting eyeglasses than simply picking out an eyeglass frame. The type of lenses that are held by the eyeglasses can have a great impact on the way the eyeglasses look, feel, and function. For this reason, many patients choose to get progressive lenses when they are selecting eyeglass lenses in Washington D.C.
Progressive lenses allow the patient to have more than one distance prescription in one eyeglass lens. In fact, patients can have three different prescriptions all in one lens. However, the true benefit of progressive lenses is that there is no delineation between where one lens prescription ends and the other begins. This means that the patient will be able to move their eye focus from one area of the lens to another, without having their vision obstructed at all by lines or unusable lens areas. When the patient wants to see at a distance, all they need to do is look slightly upward and straight ahead. When reading lenses are needed, the patient simply has to glance downward. Patients generally adjust to wearing progressive lenses very quickly. And, an added benefit is if you want to wear bifocals, you do not need to wear eyeglasses that may give your age away. With progressive lenses, no one ever needs to know how many different types of lens prescriptions there are in your eyeglasses. Progressive lenses are much more attractive than bifocals as well since they are perfectly smooth and unlined. If you are interested in coming to our optical practice and get progressive eyeglass lenses in Washington D.C. in your glasses, feel free to drop by anytime.
