Eyeglasses

Picking out new eyeglasses can be a daunting task, whether you're getting your very first pair or you've worn them nearly all your life.

Not only are there many different shapes and colors in eyeglass frames, but advances in technology have also brought us a variety of new materials, for both the frames and the lenses, which makes eyeglasses more durable, lightweight and user-friendly. Eyeglass frames are now created from high-tech materials such as titanium and "memory metal" for the ultimate in strength and style, while the lenses are now thinner and lighter than ever before, even in high prescriptions.

No matter what you expect your eyeglasses to be — lightweight, flexible, strong or hypoallergenic — you can find frames that meet your needs.

Lens options, such as anti-reflective coating, light-changing tints, progressive lenses and polycarbonate lens material, let you choose a pair of eyeglasses that enhances your vision, no matter what you like to do.
