Posted July 8, 2014


Looking For Eyewear You Will Love?

Your glasses and sunglasses are one of the first thing people see when they look at you. They have a bearing on first impressions and also give others a sense of your style. Great glasses and sunglasses have the potential make you feel confident and provide you with crystal clear vision. Our team has assembled our top 10 tips for how to select that perfect pair of glasses or sunglass.

Go where the choices are many  Styles, shapes & colors count. Have you found the perfect style of frames but want a different color? That shouldn’t be a problem at a full service optical shop. Look for over 1000 frames for the best selection.

Partner with experts  Look for friendly, professional, State Licensed opticians who will guide you when you want help, but still give you room to make your own decisions. Check out online reviews and make sure past customers were left with a favorable opinion of both the eyewear and the associated customer service.

Ensure precise measurements  Experienced Opticians know how to help you select frames just right for your face shape and how to precisely position lenses in the frames for a more comfortable fit and clearer vision. Both are keys to a comfortable fit and functional pair of glasses or sunglasses.

Explore options for sharper vision As technology and materials advance there are better and better options for creating sharper vision. Advanced materials and treatments like Glare free Crizal coatings, Transition lenses, Progressive (No-Line) bifocals and new thin-lens technology are some options. Ask to see examples of these materials when meeting with your optician. After all, seeing is believing, right?

Choose from top brands  Up-trend your eyewear! With a selection of top brands you can make a statement about your style and personality. For a look that is all your own seek out brand names that are cutting edge, such as: Maui-Jim, Ray Ban, Oliver Peoples, and La Font.

Choose options to protect your eyes and lenses  Features such as Ultraviolet Protection and Scratch Resistant Lenses will protect your lenses and more importantly, your eyes.  Make sure these options are available and included with your lenses.

Evaluate your visual needs  Your visual needs vary between work, home, recreation, sports and time out for fun. Just like shoes, sometimes you need different eyewear and optical lens designs for different tasks or looks. Spend time considering the function your glasses or sunglasses will serve and discuss those needs with your optician.

Choose a provider with on-site optical labs  On-site labs allow for better quality control and faster service with many spectacle lenses in stock. This is a unique offering and a sign that the eyewear company has the utmost commitment to quality products and service.

Understand eyewear warranties  Make sure your glasses will be replaced if broken, damaged or scratched. The best warranties are 18 Months and included at no additional charge. Some retailers do not include a warranty, charge extra, or limit the warrants to 12 months or less. Opticals that carry high quality frames and lenses will stand behind them with a great warranty.

Guarantee your satisfaction will be guaranteed!  The best eyewear boutiques offer to repair, replace, or refund your money. Beware of retailers who have strict return policies, especially those that will only give you a credit (but no refund) if you are unhappy with your eyewear. Partner with an optical shop that makes your satisfaction a priority.
