Selecting your lenses and frames is a very personal choice. A wide variety of options are available that can be tailored to suit not only your medical needs but also your fashion preferences.
Highlight your features, play with color, and augment vision for different functions such as reading, driving and playing sports. With all the choices available, the experience can be daunting without the right guidance. Pack Optical in Fort Worth makes the choice easy.
Design, material, and treatments are the three components that make up a pair of prescription lenses. It is important to select the right combination of these elements for your particular visual needs and to always consult your eye care professional.
The knowledgeable staff at Pack Optical will consider long-term wearing comfort, style, features, and function when suggesting a new pair of eyeglasses. The eyeglasses become as unique as the person taking them home.
Selecting the right eyeglass lens depends largely on its function. From single vision lenses to progressive polycarbonate lenses, we are happy to help you find what best suits your needs. Regardless of your situation, your eye care provider can help determine what types of lenses will work best for you in terms of comfort, function, and design.
With the wide variety of lens options available, you can customize your “sunnies” (sunglasses) to meet your visual, protection, performance and comfort needs. Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present even on cloudy days. Quality Sunwear provides 100 percent UV protection and can significantly reduce the risk of vision problems caused by sunlight such as cataracts and retinal damage.
Glare, an issue that makes it difficult to see objects clearly by washing out colors and details, can be combated by polarized lenses. Looking at a scene with polarized lenses, you’ll notice the colors are deeper, richer and bolder, and details are clearer and more distinct. Polarized lenses also help reduce squinting, which, in turn, reduces eye fatigue, tension, and eyestrain.
Wearers of prescription glasses and sunglasses commonly encounter annoying glare and reflections caused by light bouncing off their lenses. This glare makes it more difficult to see, especially at night. Anti-reflective lenses reduce these reflections allowing more light to pass through to your eyes.
All lens surfaces naturally reflect light and this reflection can prevent between seven to 14 percent of the light needed for optimal vision. Wearing non-AR lenses is like trying to read a book in a dimly lit room. Since AR lenses allow more light to reach your eyes by reducing reflections, it’s like turning up the lights in a room, making it easier to see.
Lenses and frames are a very necessary and personal choice. Pack Optical in Fort Worth, Texas has the experience to guide you toward eyewear selections that are comfortable and that work to complement your face. For help, request an appointment with your eye care provider and we’ll be in touch with you shortly.
Transition lenses respond to changing light and protect you from the sun. They turn darker when you transition from being indoors to the bright sunlight outside, acting like sunglasses.
Progressive lenses typically have three prescriptions in one pair of glasses. With one pair, you can see objects that are near, far, and in between. Progressive lenses are sometimes called multifocal lenses.
The transition between the parts of the lenses is seamless and shows no lines, unlike many of the traditional bifocal and trifocal lenses. Progressive lenses can effectively correct your vision at all distances.
To correct your vision, bifocal lenses have two distinct viewing areas and points of focus, such as distance and near. There are also other types of lenses, polycarbonate lenses are up to 10 times more impact resistant than regular lenses. These lenses also decrease the thickness of the lenses as well.
