Frames Q & A

What should you consider when choosing eyeglass frames?

The great thing about eyeglasses is that there are so many brands and styles to choose from; you can find frames to suit your personality and express your style. Whether you want to highlight your whimsical side, reveal your creativity, or portray confidence at work, Dr. Wilson offers a large selection.

Dr. Wilson explains the different factors that may influence your choice, such as:

Frame materials

Although frames often consist of plastic or metal, you have other options. If you have allergies, your frames can be made from hypoallergenic materials. Other examples include flexible frames to reduce breakage and blended nylon for sports or performance frames.

Frames to complement your face shape

Certain shapes and styles of frames are better suited for different face shapes. You can also make your face appear thinner, longer, shorter, or more curved by carefully choosing your frame style.

What should you consider when choosing lenses?

You have multiple choices for your eyeglass lenses because they’re made from various materials and designs. Even if you need severe vision correction, Dr. Wilson can usually provide lightweight, thin lenses.

The basic types of lenses include:

  • Single vision lens: to correct for either distance or near vision
  • Multifocal lenses: bifocal to correct reading and distance vision; trifocals to correct for near, intermediate and distance vision
  • Progressive lenses: bifocals but without a visible line between the two areas
  • Toric lenses: to correct for astigmatism

What types of specialized lenses are available?

Technological advances frequently provide new lens options. Sometimes a better version of an existing lens is created; other times an innovative breakthrough hits the market. A few examples of specialized lenses include:

Computer glasses

Anti-fatigue lenses correct your refractive vision error while providing optimal magnification for the distance from your eyes to the computer screen. Another type of lens deflects harmful blue light that’s emitted from your computer screen, which reduces eye strain and prevents vision damage.

Photochromatic lenses

These automatically darken in response to sunlight, providing 100% UV protection.

Polarized lenses

This type of lens helps diminish glare from the sun and reduce eye fatigue.
