Features & Functions
Prescription eyewear involves 3 essential components: design, material, and treatments. You need the perfect combination of these 3 elements for the perfect pair of glasses. Let’s look more closely at each element:
The shape and size of the frame should enhance the color of your eyes, complement your skin tone, and play up the best features of your face. At Los Angeles EyeCare Optometry Group, we know a thing or two about face shapes and can help you select the right design for your facial features.
Even if you’ve had a hard time finding glasses in the past, don’t worry. We have the experience necessary to find your perfect fit
Frames come in all types of material, from acetate to plastic to metals. We stock many brands and ensure that everything we offer is strong, comfortable, and flexible.
We even offer hypoallergenic options like titanium or stainless steel. We’ll ask you some questions about your lifestyle and habits and help pick out the material that best suits your needs.
If you’ve ever tried to read in a dimly lit room, you know what it feels like to wear glasses without anti-reflective treatment. Regular lenses reflect between 8 and 12% of the light that hits them. That’s a lot of light that can’t enter the eye to help with vision.
An anti-reflective treatment on your lenses is like turning up the lights! This coating allows almost 100% of light to pass through the lenses and enter the eyes. This is particularly important for driving at night or when working in low-light conditions.
An added bonus of anti-reflective coating is that people will see you—not their own reflection—when they look at you.
While no eyeglass lenses are completely immune to scratches, a scratch-resistant coating can certainly make them more durable. This coating is especially useful for kids’ glasses. Little ones tend to be harder on their eyewear than adults.
Adding a protective coating to block ultraviolet (UV) light might help prevent cataracts and other eye diseases. Cloud cover is no match for UV rays, so even if the sun isn’t shining, your eyes still need protection.
UV treatment on your eyewear provides that protection, but you should still have a pair of prescription sunglasses for those sunny days.
