Brookleigh Family Eyecare Offers Many Types of Eyeglasses
When it comes to eyeglasses in Brookhaven, GA, Brookleigh Family Eyecare has you covered. We offer everyday prescription lenses along with glasses for other occasions. You also have the option of adding special features to your glasses, such as scratch-resistant coating, transition lenses, or bifocals.
Your prescription for new eyeglasses might look like someone wrote it in a foreign language when you look at it for the first time. Optometrists use Latin abbreviations for the right eye, which is oculus dexter (O.D.), and the left eye, which is oculus sinister (O.S.). You will see numbers next to each of these that indicate the degree of vision correction you need with your new eyeglasses to get you as close to 20/20 vision as possible. Here are some other terms you will see:
- Add: For bifocals or progressive lenses
- Axis: Applicable if you have astigmatism
- Cylinder: Lens power is needed if you have astigmatism
- PD: Distance between your two pupils
- Prism: Applicable if you have vision displacement or double vision
- Sphere: Lens power required for each eye
Once you have your prescription in hand, you can buy your new eyeglasses onsite. Brookleigh Family Eyecare offers a wide range of lens and frame styles for everyone, from infants to seniors.
Other Types of Eyeglasses
Prolonged exposure to the sun without wearing sunglasses can damage the retina of your eyes. However, you may not be able to see well just wearing a pair of sunglasses you picked up at the store. Prescription sunglasses protect your eyes while giving you clear vision at the same time.
Some people only need reading glasses to ensure they can see clearly up close. We are happy to write you a prescription for reading glasses to help make reading and other hobbies more enjoyable. Please schedule an appointment to obtain new eyeglasses in Brookhaven, GA, today.
