How often should I get new eyeglasses?

You can get new eyeglasses as frequently as you want. For example, you can change your frames every year, even if you don’t need a new prescription, or choose to get new glasses only when your prescription is updated.

What are the best lenses for me?

Most eyeglasses lenses are made of plastic, a material that is shatter-resistant, blocks UV light, and is lighter and more flexible than glass. If you have a high prescription, you can opt for high index lenses, which are the thinnest, lightest lenses available. Their thinner profile reduces the “coke bottle” effect often found while wearing high prescription lenses.

If you’re experiencing presbyopia, the age-related reduction of your ability to focus on close-up objects, you could choose bifocal or multifocal lenses. Dr. Diamond also offers Transitions lenses to provide comfort and protection whether you’re inside or out.

Dr. Diamond’s team of experienced opticians discuss your options with you and help you choose the lenses that offer the best correction for your vision and look attractive.

With an in-office lab, Dr. Diamond provides single vision lenses in as quickly as one hour.

How do I know which frames are best for me?

When you’re choosing frames, there are a few factors to consider:

  • Prescription strength. Higher prescriptions require thicker lenses better suited to certain frame shapes and sizes.
  • Face shape. Choose a frame that flatters your face.
  • Frequency of wear. Do you wear glasses all day every day or only for reading or driving?
  • Personal taste. Do you want a bold or subtle eyeglass frame?

After you and your optician discuss your eyeglasses needs, they’ll help you choose the frames that can support your lenses and look fabulous. You have the opportunity to try on as many frames as you like to make your decision.

Dr. Diamond offers a range of designer frames, including Jimmy Choo, Dior, Kate Spade, and Calvin Klein, so you have access to beautiful and trendy frames that suit your lifestyle and appearance.
