Whether you are bringing your child in for an eye exam because you've noticed them squinting or you are looking to update your eyeglasses, the first step is to see an optometrist and to make sure you have an accurate prescription. At Saline Optometry and Chelsea Eyeglasses Co., we have years of experience providing our patients with reliable eye care services. After confirming your prescription, we will help you select the perfect pair of eyeglasses based on your medical needs, lifestyle, and personal fashion preferences.
Some prefer wearing glasses to contacts for various reasons, and most who wear regular contacts like to have a pair of glasses available for backup. This involves getting lenses that are not only the right prescription but that are also suited to your lifestyle. There are many different options for coatings for your glasses that will help to keep your eyes protected against the sun and glare from various sources. Some lenses protect your eyes against the blue light emitted by digital screens. There are also scratch-resistant coatings and various tints that help you see and look your best. We also offer features such as multifocal lenses with or without lines to help you see properly at varying distances.
Picking the Right Frames
There is more to getting the right frames for your eyeglasses than randomly selecting a style from the wall. At Saline Optometry and Chelsea Eyeglasses, our staff will help you select frames that suit your face shape, activity level, budget, and sense of style. The right glasses will help bring balance to your face and look like they just belong there. We have styles that are affordably priced as well as more high-end designers such as Kate Spade, Maui Jim, and more.
Going Without Glasses
If you are wearing glasses but prefer an unframed look, contacts may or may not be an option depending on your eyes. Some people hesitate to wear regular contacts because they find contacts uncomfortable, while others cannot wear contacts due to medical conditions. One option that is catching on is Ortho-K contacts, which are worn during sleeping hours and come out in the morning for improved vision throughout the day. If this sounds like an option you want to consider, talk to our optometrist about whether or not you or your child might be a good candidate.
