Prescription Glasses

Chapel Hills Vision Clinic typically uses an an automated refractor, or retinoscopy to measure the patient's specific prescription parameters. After the eye exam, our experts then render precise, specific prescriptions that can help improve their patients' eyesight exponentially.

Types of Lenses

With each new year comes new technological advances, which leads to new types of eyeglass lenses. Today, most types of lenses are created from high-tech plastics, which have the advantage of being lighter, and less apt to break than the glass lenses used in the past. Plastic lenses can also be treated with filters or coatings that can help protect them from the damaging ultraviolet rays from the sun.

Different types of contemporary lenses include:

  • Polycarbonate
  • Trivex
  • High-index plastic
  • Aspheric
  • Photochromic
  • Polarized sunglasses

Chapel Hills Vision Clinic provides a vast selection of lens types, materials and coatings to suit the specific needs of each patient. We also offer 1500 optimum-quality, designer frames from which to choose, ensuring that each patient's corrective eye wear enhances both his or her looks and vision.

Types of Frames for Every Face-to-Face

There are four basic face shapes by which to gauge which type of frame works best:

  • Oval - The oval face has well balanced features, and looks best in eye glass frames that are as wide as the face's broadest features.
  • Round - A round face can achieve a thinner, longer appearance when eyeglass frames are worn that are angular, and that are wider then they are deep. Rectangular glasses are great for a round face.
  • Heart - A heart shaped face has a wider width at the top of the face, which can be balanced by wearing frames that are wider at the bottom. Try them in light colors, or in rimless frame styles.
  • Square - The strong jaw line and broad forehead of a square face can create angles that can be softened with narrow frame styles, such as narrow ovals.
