Filling Your Rx Made Simple!

Step 1: Pick Your Frame

The first step to great eyewear is to select the perfect frame. There are both fashion and function elements to frame selection. You want to make sure you look great in your frame, that it matches your skin tone, and for guys...that your wife approves of it :-)  You also have to make sure the frame you select is functional for your vision needs. The team at The Optical Shoppe would love to help you select your next frame!

Step 2: Pick Your Lens Design

Single Vision? Bifocal? Progressive? Trifocal? Computer? There are many different lens designs to choose from. Selecting the one that is right for you begins in the exam room with your eye doctor. They will listen to your vision needs and recommend lens designs to help you maximize your vision. If you have questions about lens designs, please contact The Optical Shoppe team today.

Step 3: Pick Your Lens Material

The material your lenses are made out of is a very important decision! There are a wide variety of materials available for you to choose from. Each one has it's own pros and cons, and picking the one that is right for you is essential to a successful eyewear experience. If you would like to learn more about your choices in lens materials, please come by The Optical Shoppe and speak with our team.

Step 4: Pick Your Lens Features

After you have your frame and lenses selected, you can begin adding features to your eyewear to further enhance your visual experience! This includes things such as anti-reflective coatings, scratch prevention coatings, specialty tints, polarization, Transitions and many more. The team at The Optical Shoppe are happy to walk you through each of these features to help you decide if they are right for you!
