Eyewear

What types of eyewear are available?

Glasses have come a long way over the years. These days, most eyeglasses lenses are made from durable, shatter-resistant materials that stand up to the test of daily life. You can get lenses with special coatings to reduce light glare, fingerprints, and more.

Stockdale Optometry offers a range of frames for everyday and recreational wear. You’ll find metal and plastic frames for men, women, and children. If you need special glasses for hobbies or work, the team offers options for specialty eyewear, including:

  • Safety glasses
  • Sports glasses or goggles
  • Blue light glasses
  • Sunglasses

The team can help you find nonprescription clip-on sunglasses for your frames, or they can recommend stylish prescription sunglasses. You have choices when it comes to frame styles, polarization, UV protection, and more to get your perfect pair of prescription sunglasses.

How can I choose the best glasses for me?

Some people want their eyeglasses to make a statement, while others want glasses that are purely functional. The team at Stockdale Optometry is experienced in helping people of all ages find the best eyewear for them.

The experts can make recommendations based on your cosmetic preferences and your vision needs. Some types of glasses frames may be better suited for bifocals or stronger vision prescriptions than others. 

Many people consider the shape of their face when choosing glasses frames. Frames that are round or oval often complement square and diamond-shaped faces. For people with oval, oblong, or round faces, frames with sharper edges add definition. 

What are blue light glasses?

Spending long hours staring at computers, tablets, and phone screens may cause eye strain, fatigue, and even headaches. Also known as computer vision syndrome, these symptoms have been shown to develop as a result of exposure to blue light.

Blue light waves naturally occur in sunlight, but screens also emit them. Light from screens impacts your body’s circadian rhythm and may lead to eye fatigue with prolonged exposure. Blue light glasses block these light waves from reaching your eyes.

Stockdale Optometry offers prescription blue light glasses to wear when you’re working at the computer or using your tablet or phone. Find out if blue light glasses could help you eliminate eye strain and headaches by talking to your optometric physician.
