Eyeglasses are the primary choice of vision correction for people with myopia, hyperopia, and presbyopia. A large selection of lens types and frame designs are available for patients of all ages. Glasses come in many styles, shapes, sizes, colors, and materials, so it is easier for all patients to find something they like. Lafayette Eye Associates offers a variety of professional, stylish and fun frames to choose from. We also offer a wide choice of lens options to fit your lifestyle.
Single vision glasses are the most common type of lens for people who only need one type of visual correction (reading or distance). They can also be customized for computer use, sports use, or office use.
Multifocal glasses are used for people who need visual correction for near, intermediate, and distance. This type of lens can be a bifocal, trifocal, or progressive lens and is a useful tool for people who want one complete pair of glasses that helps in all visual fields. This prevents the need for multiple pairs of glasses, which is convenient for the patient and is a good option for many people in the work or home environment.
