Choosing the Perfect Prescription Glasses

The Benefits of Blue Light Glasses and How to Choose the Right Pair

Choosing the Perfect Prescription Glasses is more than just a necessity for clear vision—it’s also an opportunity to express your personal style and enhance your overall look. At Thomas Dental and Eye Care, we understand that choosing prescription glasses can be overwhelming with so many options available. Before you start shopping for glasses, it’s essential to understand your eyeglass prescription. Your prescription includes several key measurements:

  • Sphere (SPH): Indicates the lens power needed to correct nearsightedness or farsightedness.
  • Cylinder (CYL): Corrects astigmatism by indicating the lens power needed to correct the irregular curvature of the cornea.
  • Axis: Specifies the orientation of the astigmatism correction.
  • Add: Represents the additional magnifying power for bifocal or progressive lenses.

Choosing the Right Frame:

  1. Face Shape: The shape of your face plays a crucial role in determining which frames will look best on you:
    • Round Face: Opt for angular frames like rectangular or square shapes to add definition.
    • Square Face: Choose round or oval frames to soften strong jawlines and angles.
    • Oval Face: Most frame shapes work well, but consider geometric shapes for contrast.
    • Heart-Shaped Face: Frames that are wider at the bottom, such as aviators, help balance a broader forehead.
  2. Frame Material: Frames come in various materials, each with its benefits:
    • Plastic: Lightweight and available in numerous colors and styles.
    • Metal: Durable and adjustable, often available in classic styles.
    • Titanium: Lightweight, hypoallergenic, and highly durable.
    • Acetate: A type of plastic known for its rich colors and patterns.
  3. Frame Color: Choose a frame color that complements your skin tone, hair color, and wardrobe:
    • Warm Skin Tones: Earthy colors like browns, golds, and greens.
    • Cool Skin Tones: Bold colors like blues, blacks, and silvers.

Lens Options:

  1. Single Vision Lenses: Designed to correct one field of vision (near, intermediate, or distance).
  2. Bifocal Lenses: Have two sections for near and distance vision correction.
  3. Progressive Lenses: Offer a seamless transition between multiple vision zones (near, intermediate, and distance) without visible lines.
  4. Anti-Reflective Coating: Reduces glare and reflections, making your lenses clearer and more comfortable to wear.
  5. Blue Light Filter: Protects your eyes from the harmful effects of blue light emitted by digital screens.
