Eyeglasses & Contacts

Opticians are not eye doctors and cannot give eye exams. Dr. William Warneck will provide the prescription that your optician can fill.

How you look in contact lenses and eyeglasses affects how you look. Eyeglasses today are a fashion statement and contact lenses can change the color of your eyes!

Your optician will provide, adjust, and repair glasses, frames, and contact lenses and take facial measurements.  Their work will help decide which type of lenses and frame will work best on your face.

Here are some of the many options to choose from:

Eyeglasses:

Eyeglasses today are made of more advanced technology lenses. They are not necessarily made of glass, as they were in the past. In the past, eyeglass lenses were made exclusively of glass. Many glasses today are made of high-technology plastics. These improvements make lenses much lighter and more durable and can provide better filters to protect your eyes from damaging ultraviolet light.

State of the art no line bifocals: bifocals are usually required for older patients. These are required to see at a distance as well as up close for reading. Today, no-line bifocals, also known as progressive lenses allow patients to enjoy improved lenses without the line, to see better at a distance, close-up and anything in between with our progressives lenses.

Photochromic lenses: provide a combination of sunglasses and clear eyeglasses. They darken when exposed to sunlight and automatically transition back when you return indoors away from sunlight (Ultraviolet UV rays)

Sunglasses: provide various levels of eye protection from the sun. Whether or not you require vision correction, sunglasses can add an element of comfort and enhanced performance to your activities, while helping you look great.

This is just a partial list of the wide array of eyeglasses available today.

 

Contact Lenses:

A contact lens is a small plastic or silicone lens placed directly on the cornea of the eye to correct. Many vision conditions can be corrected with contact lenses that required eyeglasses in the past. Millions of people wear contact lenses but require proper care to avoid any problems. Your Optometrist, Dr. William Warneck can explain the details for care and health of your eyes as well as your lenses.

Types of Contact Lenses: Soft Contact Lenses, Colored, Soft Contacts, Rigid Gas-Permeable Lenses, Bifocal Contacts and Toric Lenses for Astigmatism.

Contact lenses have changed dramatically over the years. Now you can easily change the color of your eyes and treat many vision conditions without the need for eyeglasses.

Thin plastic lenses fit over your cornea — the clear, front part of your eye — to correct vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. You can wear contacts even if you have presbyopia and need bifocals.

Dr. William Warneck can recommend the best type of contact lenses available for your vision needs.
