Are you having trouble seeing clearly when you read? Is it difficult for you to do close-up work such as doing some type of crafting activity? If so, the time may have come for you to get reading glasses. Almost everyone needs reading glasses by the time they reach their middle years. However, this is exactly the reason why some patients do not want others to see them wearing reading glasses! Luckily, there are many new and discrete ways that patients are able to wear reading glasses in Sunnyside NY.
To begin with, patients are now able to get bifocal contact lenses. Patients can come in to our eye care practice, Lens Lab Express, and be fit for bifocal contact lenses by our skilled optometrist. Our optometrist is highly experienced in not only fitting patients for contact lenses but also in providing patients with the exact appropriate lens prescription needed to fit their specific eye care needs. Most patients find that they can easily get used to bifocal contact lenses. Of course, at our optical store we also offer a wide selection of plain reading glasses in Sunnyside NY. Over the years reading glasses have become very whimsical and fun and we are able to offer many different types of reading glasses.
Some patients want to get prescription eyeglasses with reading glasses included with the other standard prescription. These are called bifocals since the eyeglasses contain lenses that have two different prescriptions. With standard bifocals, reading glasses are included in the lens prescription; the eyeglasses can be seen to be bifocals since there is a line in the lens that delineates the reading last portion from the other vision portion. However, some patients do not like bifocal glasses because they find the line in the lens is obstructive to their vision. At Lens Lab Express we are now happy to offer progressive lenses which are able to have several different lens strengths in them. This means that patients can get glasses which can be used for both distance and reading, with one smooth lens in place. An extra benefit is that no one is able to tell that these are actually bifocal reading glasses just by looking at them. Our optometrist will need to carefully write the prescription so that these eyeglasses will comfortably work for you. If you would like to see our optometrist regarding getting progressive reading glasses in Sunnyside NY contact us today. If you simply want to come in and buy reading glasses, feel free to stop by anytime.
