Glasses Q & A

Why do I need prescription glasses?

Even if you have a fairly mild prescription, it’s important to get lenses customized for your unique issues. 

For example, if you have astigmatism as well as myopia, you need lenses tailored for both issues. Many people also have slightly different prescriptions in each eye, something that you need custom eyeglasses to correct. 

Many people also need more than one prescription, and the only way to get bifocal or multifocal lenses is through custom eyeglasses. 

Getting custom eyeglasses at Crossroads Optometry also allows you to tailor your frames and lenses for your lifestyle and personal needs. 

How do I get a glasses prescription?

To get a new glasses prescription, you simply need to schedule a comprehensive eye exam at Crossroads Optometry. Eye exams check your eyesight and test your vision using a variety of lenses so your eye doctor can give you the perfect prescription. 

Eye exams offer the additional benefits of screening for a number of eye conditions and diseases, including macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. With an early diagnosis of serious eye issues, you can start preventive treatments and management right away.

How long does it take to get new glasses?

Crossroads Optometry streamlines the process with their on-site optical lab, so it’s remarkably quick. In fact, you visit the optical shop immediately following your comprehensive eye exam. 

The experienced opticians can help you choose the lens type, frame type, and unique variations of each that best fit your needs. Depending on the options you choose, you could have your new glasses on the same day or within just a few days. 

What kind of glasses lens treatments are available?

At Crossroads Optometry, you can choose special lens treatments such as:

  • UV protection
  • Scratch-resistant
  • Polarized (anti-glare)
  • Photochromic (light to dark)
  • Blue light blocking

Tell your eye care provider what you expect from your glasses so they can help you find options that are up to the task.
