Eyeglasses are the oldest and most common option. There are many options for eyeglasses with different frame styles available and many different lens materials. Your optician can help you decide which frame style is best for your face and can advise you on which type of lenses best suit your vision needs.

Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a popular alternative to eyeglasses for those who prefer a frame-free appearance. Contact lenses have been improved over the years and can be a safe, convenient alternative to eyeglasses. After a contact lens exam, your optometrist can recommend the contact lens best suited for your eyes.
