The optical shop is pleased to offer state-of-the-art prescription lenses at competitive prices. Check out a few of the many options below:
Anti-reflective lenses – Do you experience glare when driving at night or in inclement weather? Do you feel strained during computer use? Do you notice pesky white reflections on your lenses in photos? Anti-reflective coatings, brand name Crizal, are the solution! This popular lens option can be applied to any lens type and prescription, and can even include blue-light blocking technology to improve eye-strain associated with computer/tablet use.
Transition lenses – These lenses are clear indoors and darken outdoors when exposed to UV light. They are available in almost every prescription and there are a number of color options. Please note that most car windshields have a UV filter, which prevent these lenses from darkening while driving. For this reason, patients often get separate sunglasses or clip-ons for driving.
Progressive lenses – This lens style, also referred to as “no-line bifocals,” is the most commonly preferred multifocal lenses because they provide clear vision for nearly any distance. Progressive lens technology has improved dramatically over the past few years. The optical shop is proud to offer the most state-of-the-art progressive lenses from brands including Varilux and Shamir, which are digitally manufactured to decrease distortion and provide the widest field of vision at distance, reading, and computer.
With more and more people relying on computers, tablets and smartphones, intermediate distance glasses have become very popular. Depending on the prescription and lifestyle requirements, patients can wear either single vision or bifocal computer glasses for optimal intermediate vision. We suggest always using anti-glare coating for computers and tablets to help reduce eye fatigue.
The optical shop at Stamford Ophthalmology is pleased to offer a one-time, one-year, no charge warranty on our glasses in the event of accidental damage, as long as you bring in all of the broken pieces. The frame warranty covers manufacturers defect, including instances such as a temple that breaks off, or chipping paint.
Please note that depending on your individual vision plan, this warranty may not apply. The warranty does not apply to lost, stolen or clearance glasses.
Our optical shop also offers a variety of discounts. We provide 10% off a complete set of glasses with either AAA or AARP. We also offer a multiple pair discount, which can be especially helpful if you are updating both your regular glasses and your sunglasses. The optical shop has a variety of clearance frames, with savings up to 50% off select designer frames. Please note that discounts or clearance items cannot be combined with vision plans, insurances, or other discounts and coupons. Please see a shop optician for details.
