The type of vision problem that you have determines the shape and type of the eyeglass lens that is best suited for you. For example, a lens that is concave, or curves inward, is used to correct nearsightedness, while a lens that is convex, or curves outward, is used to correct farsightedness. A distortion in the shape of the cornea, or astigmatism, is usually corrected by a cylinder shaped lens. Simply put, the eyeglass lens is a tool used by the experts at our San Antonio optical goods store, The Eyeglass Shop, to focus light properly onto your retina.

The single vision lens is prescribed if you need correction for one field of vision, whether for distance or objects up close. Our San Antonio optical goods include a number of choices for the single vision lens wearer, including our high index lenses and polycarbonate lenses. Aspherics are ideal for strong prescriptions, because they are flatter and thinner and provide better vision than ordinary lens. As technology progresses so do choices in eyeglass lenses.

In the past, eyeglass lenses were made solely of glass but today most eyeglasses are made of high-tech plastics. These new lenses are much lighter, do not break as easily, and can be treated with a filter to protect your eyes from damaging ultraviolet light. One modern eyeglass lens recommended by the experts at our San Antonio optical goods store, lighter, thinner, and more scratch-resistant than glass lenses, are polycarbonate lenses. These eyeglass lenses are shock-resistant and a good choice for people who participate in sports regularly, work in a job environment where their eyeglasses can be easily scratched or broken, and for children who tend to drop and scratch their eyeglasses. Polycarbonate lenses also provide ultraviolet protection.

Trivex lenses are made from a newer plastic with similar characteristics of polycarbonate lenses. Lightweight, thin, and impact-resistant, they may result in better vision correction than the polycarbonate lenses for some people. High index plastic lenses are designed for people who require strong prescriptions but these eyeglass lenses are lighter and thinner than the standard, thick “coke bottle” lenses that may otherwise be needed. Whatever your situation, our educated staff at The Eyeglass Shop will educate you on the best choice for your particular situation.

The San Antonio opticians here at the Eyeglass Shop understand that it can be hard to find the time to get those new prescription glasses or sunglasses you need. With work and family demanding so much of your energy, it’s easy to feel like you’ve got better things to do than go to the eye doctor, even though you may be experiencing the side-effects of blurred vision or risking serious eye damage from unprotected sun exposure. But wait a minute! If you really stop and think about how much you rely on your eyes as you go about your daily routine, if you think about how much harder everything is when you’re not seeing well, suddenly that exam doesn’t seem like so much of a sacrifice, does it?

The consequences of going without vision correction when you need it are fairly obvious. Whether it’s reading, working with your hands or driving, virtually everything you do is made more difficult (and, in many cases, more dangerous!) when your eyes aren’t functioning optimally. Never mind the discomfort of headaches and constant eye fatigue! The consequences of not wearing sunglasses, however, maybe aren’t so clear. Well, let your San Antonio opticians at the Eyeglass shop remind you. The sun produces incredible amounts of electromagnetic radiation. While some of this radiation — visible light — is detectable by our eyes, a great deal of it is completely invisible to us. Unfortunately, it’s this invisible radiation we have to watch out for. One type that is particularly dangerous is ultraviolet (UV) light. Though our eyes may not be able to see it, they can still be harmed by its penetrating rays. Cataracts and macular degeneration are but two of the most common ocular maladies linked to excessive exposure to UV light. Both can lead to blindness, and both can be avoided or reduced in severity simply by wearing quality sunglasses with lenses designed to filter out UV radiation every day.

But our San Antonio opticians at The Eyeglass Shop aren’t only worried about your comfort and health. We also know that when it comes to prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses, looking good is every bit as important as correcting vision impairment and protecting eyes from harmful ultraviolet radiation. That’s why we carry a host of designer frames to go with our quality lenses. Brands include Face a Face, Oliver Peoples, Gucci, Hugo Boss and more. We’ll even help you pick if you’re having trouble choosing from our vast selection. Pay us a visit. We promise it’ll be worth your time.
