Eyeglasses in Las Vegas
When it comes to choosing eyeglass lenses, it’s no longer a simple choice of glass or plastic. Luckily, Dr. Paul Thompson will take the time to discuss how different prescription eyeglass lenses can impact your vision, answer any questions you might have, and supply you with the most up-to-date information in order to keep your eyes healthy. So if you know you need prescription eyeglass lenses, but are unsure exactly what style, we would be happy to educate you in the different types of eyeglasses in Las Vegas and what they do.
Nearly everyone can benefit from thinner, lighter lenses. High index lenses, for example, can be up to 50% thinner than regular glass or plastic lenses, and they’re usually much lighter. Most popular lens designs (single vision, bifocal, progressive, photochromic, etc.) come in high-index materials. To make high index lenses even more attractive, most of them have an “aspheric” design; instead of having a round (or “spherical”) curve on the front surface, these lenses have a curve that gradually changes from the center to the lens to the periphery. This makes aspheric lenses noticeably flatter for a slimmer, more attractive lens profile, greatly reducing the magnified “bug-eye” look caused by regular, highly curved lenses. Furthermore, polycarbonate and trivex lenses are special high index eyeglasses that offer superior impact resistance. These lenses are up to 10 times more impact resistant than regular plastic eyeglasses in Las Vegas, making them an ideal choice for children’s eyewear, safety glasses, and for anyone with an active lifestyle. While photochromic lenses are convenient indoor-outdoor eyeglass lenses that automatically darken to a sunglass shade outside when exposed to sunlight (with 100% protection from the sun’s UV rays), and then quickly return to a clear state indoors.
With so many new lens products available, it’s hard to know all your options and decide which eyeglasses lenses are best for you. Rely on our expertise to make selecting your eyeglasses in Las Vegas easy and fun. Dr. Thompson welcomes the opportunity to help you find the perfect eyewear for your personal style and vision requirements.
