What is a bifocal or progressive lens? And do you offer bifocals or progressive lenses?
Bifocals contain two lens powers. Progressive multifocal lenses gradually change in power from the top half of the lens to the bottom, and thus contain many lens powers.
Currently we do not have bifocals. Most of our prescription glasses offer progressive lenses.
What are blue-light blocking lenses? And do you offer prescriptions with blue-light lenses?
A filter in the lens that blocks and filters out blue light from getting through. Highly recommended when looking at screens on your computer, phones and other electronic devices. It reduces the exposure to blue light waves that tire your eyes, affect sleep and overall well-being.
We do offer a standard blue light lens. Our blue-light lenses block high-energy visible blue light emitted from digital screens on computers, televisions and mobile devices. Unlike most blue-light lenses, ours do not have a yellow tint that results from a coating applied to the glasses. Our blue-light technology is actually built into the polycarbonate lens to give you durable protection and a crystal-clear view.
Do your blue-light lenses have a yellow tint?
Although many blue-light lenses have yellow-tinted lenses to filter out HEV blue light, our blue-light lenses do not have a yellow tint.
Why is it important that the frames fit you properly?
Every human head is unique, each face has different measurements and no other eyes on earth are exactly like yours. Since eyeglass frames fit certain face shapes differently, it is important to observe how a frame rests on your unique facial features. For example, if the bridge area does not fit properly on your nose then the glasses will slide down, affecting not only how they look and feel but also how you see. Also, if glasses are too narrow and tight, then they may put pressure on your face while restricting your peripheral vision. Wearing lenses with incorrect alignment specifications will commonly cause issues such as visual discomfort, blurriness, eye strain, “pulling sensation” and headaches.
How can I adjust the nose pads?
1. Grasp glasses by the bridge between thumb and forefinger. Do not hold by the frame or lenses.
2. After you have done step 1, gently pull apart the nose pads. Try not to do this too often, or you will wear down the metal. Its important that you find the sweet spot so that the frames will sit comfortably on the bridge of your nose.
How can I adjust the arms/temples of my new frames?
If you wear metal frames: Simply widen the plastic nose pads using your thumbs until the frames fit comfortably.
If you wear plastic frames:
1. First soak the arms of your glasses in hot/warm water for 30-60 seconds. Alternatively, you can use a blow dryer on a warm setting to make the arms more pliable.
2. Gently apply an upward outward pressure at the end of the arms to achieve a more relaxed fit.
3. If the frame slides down your face too much you can bend the earpiece/temple closer to a 90-degree angle to tighten the fit.
