Eyeglasses at Vision Professionals of Leawood

Eyeglasses are a popular and effective way to correct multiple vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. They consist of a frame that holds two lenses in front of your eyes to help light focus correctly on the retina. Vision Professionals of Leawood in Leawood, KS, offers several lens types and materials to improve your vision and comfort. Learn more about eyeglasses and how they can help you below.


Getting the Right Eyewear

The first step toward getting the perfect eyeglasses for your visual needs and lifestyle is to schedule an eye exam with our eye doctor. This exam assesses your overall eye health and determines the prescription necessary to correct your nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Our eye doctor will use instruments to measure your visual acuity, depth perception, and eye muscle function. Doing this also helps identify eye diseases that require treatment.

Lens Types

Once our optometrist has determined your prescription, you can discuss lens options with him. We offer several lens types to help you achieve visual clarity and comfort. These include the following:

•             Single vision lenses: These lenses correct for one vision problem, such as nearsightedness or farsightedness.

•             Bifocal lenses: Bifocals contain two prescriptions in each lens, allowing you to see both near and far objects more clearly. The top portion corrects distance vision, and the bottom section helps with near vision.

•             Progressive lenses: Progressive lenses offer a smooth transition between different focal points within the same lens. These allow for a more natural viewing experience.

Lens Materials

The material your eyeglasses lenses are made from can also impact your vision and comfort. Here are some of the most common lens materials:

•             Plastic: Plastic lenses are the most common type of lens material. They are lightweight, impact-resistant, and affordable.

•             Polycarbonate: Polycarbonate lenses are a type of plastic lens that is even more impact-resistant than standard plastic lenses. They are a good choice for people who are active or who have children.

•             High-index plastic: High-index plastic lenses are a good option for people with strong prescriptions. They are thinner and lighter than standard plastic lenses, making them especially beneficial for people with high prescriptions.

•             Glass: Glass lenses offer the best visual clarity but are heavier and more fragile than other materials.
