Have you been thinking about getting contact lenses? If so, you will first need a contact lens exam to make sure that your eyes are healthy and can accommodate contact lenses. If you are looking for Bronx optical goods, you will do well to visit us at Urban Eyes.

When you first visit us to get contact lenses, you will initially need to have a comprehensive contact lens exam. A contact lens exam incorporates not only the aspects of a regular eye exam, but also some extra steps that need to be taken to ensure a proper fitting contact lens. First, the comprehensive eye exam will test your visual acuity as well as look for any hidden eye diseases or conditions. The exam will include tests for: nearsightedness; farsightedness; astigmatism; glaucoma; diabetic retinopathy; cataracts; macular degeneration, and other eye conditions. The curvature of your cornea will be measured to help ensure that the contacts will fit correctly and comfortably. Other eye measurements will also be taken, including measurement of your iris. Your eyes may also be tested for dry eye, to make sure that your eyes can comfortably accommodate contacts. These tests are all important so that you can get Bronx optical goods.

Once your eye exam is complete, our optometrist will be able to write a contact lens prescription for you. Most people prefer soft lenses over hard lenses because they are more comfortable to wear. There are some times when hard lenses may help the wearer achieve clearer vision. However, in the majority of cases, soft lenses are prescribed. Soft lenses come in several different types including: daily wear lenses that are removed after about 14 hours for cleaning and to rest the eyes; extended wear lenses that can be worn overnight for a select number of days; and disposable wear contact lenses that are worn once and then thrown out. The benefit here is that every day the wearer gets to enjoy their vision through a perfectly new and clean pair of contacts. Soft lenses also can have the ability to appear to change the iris color of your eyes. So, if you are thinking about getting contact lenses, visit us at Urban Eyes for Bronx optical goods. You will be able to order your contact lenses through us as well. We look forward to meeting with you soon and helping your eyes see the world more clearly.

As we grow older, it is natural for our vision to change. One of the most common issues we see in patients at our Bronx optical shop, Urban Eyes, over the age of forty or so is presbyopia. Presbyopia is an optical condition in which the eye decreases in its ability to focus properly as a result of the natural aging process. If you already wear eyeglasses for being nearsighted or farsighted, you may still notice signs of presbyopia. For people who already depend on their lenses to see clearly, the development of presbyopia may call for a new kind of eyeglasses—either bifocals or multifocals.

At our Bronx optical shop, we have both available for you. Bifocals contain two different lens powers to help you with two different kinds of vision impairments. Similarly, multifocals contain either two or more lens powers in order to help you see objects at all distances, which works perfectly for those who have developed presbyopia. Multifocal lenses are broken up into different zones, so that you can look through a certain area of the lens in order to see the object you are focusing on more clearly. This becomes a natural process and patients find it very easy to adjust to over time. If you are struggling with symptoms of presbyopia, you should schedule an appointment with the experts at our Bronx optical shop as soon as possible so that we can evaluate if you are in need of bifocal or multifocal lenses. If you do need new lenses or new glasses, there is no better place to be than Urban Eyes, where we have an extensive selection of beautiful designer brand frames to suit any budget.

If you are interested in learning more about multifocal lenses or any of the other optical products and services available to you at our Bronx optical shop, we encourage you to visit the main Urban Eyes website to find some additional information. If you have any specific questions or concerns that we can help you with, do not hesitate to get in touch with our staff. Feel free to either give us a call during our regular hours of operation, or send us a message online. We look forward to your next visit with us at Urban Eyes.

Anti-reflective coating, is an anti-glare covering that is microscopically thin and multilayered that eliminates reflections from the front and back surface of eyeglass lenses. This coating makes your lenses almost invisible so that people can focus more on your eyes, rather than a distracting reflection from your eyeglasses. Also eliminating glare caused by light reflecting from your lenses, anti-reflective lens coating also provides better vision for night driving and makes reading and using a computer more comfortable. Other lens coatings recommended as part of your West Bronx discount eyewear are anti-scratch coating and hydrophobic. An anti-scratch coating can extend the life of your lenses, while hydrophobic coatings prevents the effects of snow, rain, and fog.

No eyeglass lenses, including, glass lenses, are scratch-proof, but we highly recommend scratch-resistant coating at our West Bronx discount eyewear store. Lenses that are coated, front and back with a clear, scratch-resistant coating, have a much harder surface that is more resistant to scratching. Children’s lenses, especially, benefit from a scratch-resistant hard coat for much greater durability. If you live in a colder climate, you’ve experienced your eyeglasses fogging up when you come in from the cold. This also can become a safety issue, since it limits your ability to see clearly until the fog clears. Fog Free lens coating can be applied to plastic, polycarbonate and other eyeglass lenses, including high-index lenses. The anti-fog coating is applied to the lenses before they are cut to fit into your frame from our West Bronx discount eyewear store. We will talk to you about your needs and lifestyle to best suggest the lens coatings that will benefit you the best, keeping you safe and seeing clearly.
