Better vision, increased comfort, and enhanced performance for both work and play are at your fingertips. Today, eyeglass lens technology has so much to complement your life style. The last few years have seen tremendous strides in the technology behind both frames and lenses. Glasses aren't just about fashionable frames that look great on you.

Together they create a visual system that's designed just for you and your individual visual and lifestyle needs.

Want to prevent or slow vision loss? According to many eye care professionals, the best way to accomplish this is with early detection through regular eye exams.
Even though your vision may be clear, exams can uncover changes in the eye caused by high blood pressure, diabetes, eye tumors, retinal disorders and glaucoma. Some of these have no symptoms in the early stages. Eye exams can also lead to the earliest detection of other serious health problems-including diabetes or hypertension.
Also, children should have their first eye exam before entering kindergarten.
