At West U Vision, we’re dedicated to helping you achieve the best possible vision, all the time. Single vision lenses, ones which address one vision concern, are one of the ways in which we do that. When you come into our Houston optical store, we will offer you only the best and most professional service, from your eye exam to picking out your frames to making sure that they fit you comfortably.
It is a cornerstone of your eye health and well being to have a yearly eye exam at our Houston optical store. Please call in advance for an appointment to see our optometrist. Remember that in addition to determining if you need corrective lenses, you will also be screened for common eye diseases. Many times, these diseases begin and progress without any obvious signs, so it is essential that you have your eyes checked regularly. When it comes to your vision, various tests will assist in finding out if you need help to see your best. If you are either nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, or have presbyopia, you will be prescribed single vision lenses. If you have two or more vision concerns to address, you would then need bifocal or multifocal lenses. Nearsightedness is when the curvature of your cornea is off, causing light to focus on the front of your retina, instead of directly. Farsightedness is the opposite, focusing on the back of the retina. Nearsightedness means you can see fine when things are up close, but you have trouble focusing on things in the distance. Conversely, farsightedness allows you to see well in the distance, but not so well nearby.
With your prescription for single vision lenses written by our optometrist, your next step will be to choose the frames that will house them. Luckily for you, our Houston optical store is well stocked with a variety of styles and sizes that include some of the best known names in eyewear: Coach, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Nike, Hugo Boss, and Polo are just some of the designers we carry. Call us today to schedule your eye exam and get started on the road to sharper and clearer vision.
