Lenses and Frames
A brief description of the types of lenses and variety of frames available at EYES on MAiN in Bozeman.
At EYES on MAiN, we know that selecting your lenses and frames is a very personal choice. That is why we offer a wide variety of options that can be tailored to suit not only your medical needs but also your fashion preferences.
Whether you are looking to highlight your features, play with color, or simply correct your vision for different functions such as reading, driving, or playing sports, with all the choices available, the experience can be daunting! EYES on MAiN makes these choices easy with our talented and experienced staff of opticians.
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.
The knowledgeable staff at EYES on MAiN will consider long-term wearing comfort, style, features and function when suggesting a new pair of eyeglasses. Our finished 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, our doctors can help determine what types of lenses will work best for you in terms of comfort, function and design.
When choosing a frame, the shape and size of the frame should enhance the color of your eyes, complement your skin tone and play up the best features of your face shape.
Most people need more than one pair of glasses, such as one for everyday wear and another for outdoor activities. Having different style frames for different activities and moods makes wearing glasses more fun.
With the wide variety of lens options available, you can customize your 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. Did you know up to 80% of harmful UV light is reflected by snow? 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. If you are an avid fisherman, polarized lenses can make all the difference in finding that perfect catch! By wearing polarized lenses, you’ll notice the colors are deeper, richer and bolder. 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. The staff at EYES on MAiN has the experience to guide you toward eyewear selections that are both comfortable and fashionable. If you already have a current prescription for glasses, we are more than happy to help with your selection! Stop by anytime at our Bozeman location on 15th and Main Street!
