We pride ourselves in carrying only the highest quality frames and lenses.

Selecting your frames and lenses is a very personal choice. We make sure we not only tailor to your medical needs, but also to your style preferences.

Highlight your features, play with color, and augment vision for different functions such as reading, driving and playing sports. With all the choices available, the experience can be daunting without the right guidance. Vision Source South Hills makes the choice easy.

Frames

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 and to always consult your eye care professional.

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.

Our knowledgeable staff at Vision Source South Hills will consider long-term wearing comfort, style, features and function when suggesting a new pair of eyeglasses. The eyeglasses become as unique as the person taking them home.

Lenses

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, your eye care provider can help determine what types of lenses will work best for you in terms of comfort, function and design.

 

Sunglasses

With the wide variety of lens options available, you can customize your sunglasses to ensure the best vision, protection, and comfort. Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present even on cloudy days. 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. Looking at a scene with polarized lenses, you’ll notice the colors are deeper, richer and bolder, and details are clearer and more distinct. Polarized lenses also help reduce squinting, which, in turn, reduces eye fatigue, tension and eyestrain.

Anti-Reflective Lenses

Wearers of prescription glasses and sunglasses commonly encounter bothersome 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 lenses without an anti-reflective coating is like trying to read a book in a dimly lit room. Since anti-reflective 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. Vision Source South Hills has the experience to guide you toward eyewear selections that are comfortable and that work to complement your face. For help, request an appointment with your eye care provider and we’ll be in touch to confirm a date and time with one of our doctors.
