Eyeglasses Q & A

How often should I get new eyeglasses?

You should buy new glasses when your prescription changes. Wearing glasses with an inaccurate prescription can cause headaches. If you really love your frames, you can request to have your new lenses inserted into your frames. Also, if you have a child whose prescription changes often, reusing frame is a good option. If your prescription doesn’t change often, you may be able to get new, stylish frames when you replace your glasses. Dr. Clark offers frames from a variety of designers including 141, Article One, Badgley Mischka, Converse, Costa, Etnia, IGreen, John Varvatos, Lucky Brand, Mira Flex, NW 77th, Ovvo Optics, Vera Bradley, Prodesign Denmark, Salt, and more. You can choose from many shapes and colors to find what looks best on you.

What are the best lenses?

Each patient will have different needs for their lenses. In recent years, high-index plastic lenses have become more popular because technicians are able to craft thinner, lighter lenses, even for people with strong prescriptions. Children may be better off with polycarbonate lenses as these are lightweight but strong and impact-resistant.

The coating that you choose for your lenses is also important.

  • Anti-reflective coating helps to cut down on reflections and glare and can make seeing at night easier. They also reduce glare on the lenses themselves, which makes them clearer and easier for you to see through.
  • UV-blocking coating protects your eyes from harmful UV rays. Studies show that prolonged exposure to UV rays can lead to eye conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration later in life.
  • Anti-scratch coating protects your lenses. This can be especially helpful for children.

Will I have help making decisions about eyeglasses?

Yes. Dr. Clark and his team want you to feel happy with your eyeglasses and confident in your appearance. They will discuss options for lenses that will best suit your needs and help you to choose frames in a shape and color that complements your look. You can choose from a wide variety of frames at Dr. Clark's in-house boutique.
