Custom Eyeglasses - Frame Fittings
If you want the best possible vision, it’s important to choose an eyeglass frame that can accommodate your vision prescription – and it must properly fit your face! This might seem simple, but there are a few factors that will determine if a frame works well for you.
It can be tempting to order inexpensive frames online, but the true hidden costs may be more than you realize. The difference between a random stock pair of glasses and a professional eyeglass frame fitting can be like night and day. The pitfalls of poorly fitted eyewear go beyond inadequate vision correction. They may require constant adjustment – or may even slip off your face and crack or damage your delicate eye and facial tissue.
Don’t risk your vision and eye health with eyeglasses designed to fit someone else. Many online retailers offer bargain frames with set sizing unlikely to be appropriate for you. At Family Eye Care Center, we offer custom eyewear fittings designed to maximize all aspects of wear. We can provide you with the exact lenses your prescription indicates, perfectly fitted in frames that match all aspects of your face. From lens width and height to optimal bridge and temple sizing, and more, our access to the full catalogs of our trusted eyeglass manufacturers ensures you can enjoy the very best fit and performance from your new eyeglasses.
No matter your prescription, it is important that the center of the lenses sit straight with your line of sight for precise vision correction. If your prescription includes a correction for Astigmatism or Presbyopia (age-related farsightedness), proper alignment with your eyes is crucial!
Lenses intended for a bifocal, trifocal, or multifocal correction must be sized and fitted with precision. Many factors, including the position you prefer to wear your eyeglasses, will have some bearing on the placement of corrective elements within the lens itself. We must consider these before ordering your new eyewear.
Whether you are new to wearing multifocal lenses, have worn them for years and are due for an update, or you’ve had difficulty adjusting to these specialty lenses in the past, Dr. Craig offers the expertise required to help you get the most benefit from your bifocal, trifocal, or multifocal eyeglass prescription.
Precise eyeglass fitting is especially important for children. 80% of the information processed by children is obtained through their sense of sight. Uncorrected and poorly corrected vision impairment can profoundly impact all aspects of a child’s life. From restricting learning opportunities, social interactions, and development to contributing to behavior and discipline problems, creating a negative self-image, and setting the child up for a lifetime of underachievement and disadvantages, the impact of restricted vision can be devastating.
It is critical that infants and children have optimal vision to support proper cognitive development, learning, and growth. We know you want the best for your child –and there is nothing more important than the ability to accurately understand the world around them. We can help you provide this for your child so they enjoy the best chance for success in school and life.
Dr. Craig completed his residency in pediatrics and specializes in correcting a broad range of vision impairments affecting infants and children of all ages. Whether your child requires a minor visual field correction, a strong eyeglass prescription, treatment for a lazy eye, crossed eyes, or they are at risk for visual issues due to a congenital condition such as cerebral palsy or Down Syndrome, Family Eye Care Center can help ensure your child’s vision needs are addressed appropriately – and with properly fitting eyeglasses to take them from the schoolroom to the sports court in comfort and style!
