If you are thinking about buying eyeglasses, you will definitely want to visit our vision practice, Dr. Paul Thompson. When you see us to get new eyeglasses in Las Vegas, you will be able to receive a comprehensive eye exam by our optometrist, Dr. Paul Thompson, and also learn about the best lenses to use in your new eyeglasses.
Today there are many types of eyeglass lenses available. Our optometrist or optician will be happy to talk to you about the lens options we offer, and let you know which lenses will work best for you given your prescription needs and lifestyle. High-index plastic lenses are very useful if you need a strong lens prescription. These lenses are much lighter and thinner than traditional lenses, and will not only allow you to see more clearly, but will look more attractive as well. Progressive lenses allow you to have more than one prescription in a single progressive lens. For many people this means that they will no longer need to reach for reading glasses when they are reading or doing close-up work. Since many people do not like to be seen wearing reading glasses because they feel it gives away their age, progressive lenses are very popular. Polycarbonate lenses are extremely impact resistant and are very helpful if you play a lot of sports, or if you are buying eyeglasses in Las Vegas for your child. Aspheric lenses are much thinner and flatter than regular lenses, so they can be particularly useful for eyeglass lenses that tend to be thick. They are not only more attractive, but they also provide patients with a larger field of vision. Trivex lenses are similar to polycarbonate lenses; they are extremely lightweight, thin and impact resistant. Photochromic lenses will darken when they are exposed to the sun’s rays, and will eliminate the need for some people to buy sunglasses in addition to regular eyeglasses.
The next time you are in the market for eyeglasses in Las Vegas we hope you will stop by to see us and our exciting selection of eyeglass frames and lenses.
