Prescription Eye Glasses

Prescription Eyeglasses

Many people today are nearsighted or farsighted. Thankfully, these conditions can be corrected with prescription eyeglasses. At Spadafora & Zak Eye Care, Dr. Ann M. Spadafora and Dr. Michael C. Zak  have been sharing the benefits of prescription eyeglasses with residents of Clarkston, MI for over 20  years. When you first visit our office, our optometrist will assess your condition to determine whether or not you will benefit from wearing prescription eyeglasses.


How Do I Know If I Need Prescription Eyeglasses?

The most common vision issues are blurry sight, night vision difficulties, and problems reading the fine print. If you are experiencing any of these, you may not necessarily require eyeglasses unless your visual acuity deteriorates. Frowning and squinting in the eyes also indicate that you need to visit your eye doctor to determine whether or not you need eyeglasses.

Choosing the Right Prescription Eye Glasses

It's crucial to know the difference between single-vision lenses, reading glasses, and enhanced reading glasses. Single-vision lenses have just one prescription while reading glasses help tailor the single vision lens to your ideal reading distance. There are varifocal lenses that combine close-up, intermediate, and far-distance vision. It's also crucial to understand the lens material and thickness.

Make sure to stick to the prescription given by your eye doctor, and if you have an active lifestyle that involves a lot of manual or outdoor activities, go for a sturdy frame. The eyeglasses you choose should:

  • Fit your face well
  • Match with your style
  • Make you feel confident
  • Be comfortable

Choosing the Right Frame for Your Prescription Eye Glasses

Spadafora and Zak Eye Care has the best selection of stylish frames and state of the art Eye Care Equipment.  There are bold frames and others that are more discrete. It is important to have the prescription in mind even when choosing your frames. Slightly short-sighted people have no limits when it comes to the thickness of the lens, so all frames are suitable. On the contrary, heavily short-sighted people have limited choices of frames, while long-sighted people require wide frames and aspherical lenses. Dr. Ann M. Spadafora and Dr. Michael C. Zak  and the talented staff of trained optometric professionals  in Clarkston, MI can help you choose frames that suit you perfectly in all aspects.
