Prescription and Specialty Eyewear

imageWe provide wide range of specialty eyewear for special needs.

Regardless of your vision issue, or how you choose to view the world, there are now prescription lenses that meet your personal lifestyle and eye correction requirements. At Empress Eye Clinic we carry eyeglass lenses that: change as the light changes, from clear indoors to dark outdoors; bifocal lenses that provide multiple fields of vision; high-index lenses that are thinner and lighter than ever before; and progressive lenses that eliminate the traditional lines of multi-focal lenses. You may also want to consider a second pair of glasses as a spare or to address a different vision need. We're also happy to give you tips on how to care for and maintain your lenses, as well as choose the right type of eyeglass frame materials for you.

To be sure, while eyeglass lenses are prescribed to correct all kinds of vision challenges, prescription lenses have progressed tremendousbly—providing you the chance to truly customize your eyeglasses and make a statement about how you choose to look at the world.

  • Bifocals are lenses with two distinct viewing areas to help correct vision that fails at two or even three distances.
  • Manufactured to be thinner at the edges of the lens and lighter in weight overall—a good choice for people with stronger prescriptions.
  • Photochromic lenses change from clear to dark based on the intensity of UV radiation.
  • Polycarbonate lenses are up to 10 times more impact resistant than regular plastic lenses.
  • Progressive lenses allow multiple vision fields to be incorporated into a single lens without any clear distinction between the fields themselves. This is why progressive lenses are often referred to as “no-line” bifocals or trifocals.
