IT and computer lenses

Are you tired of eye strain and neck aches at the computer?  There is a solution.  New computer and occupational specific lenses eliminate this frustration. Reading spectacles only provide clear vision at close range.  With modern computers in many work spaces and at home, the need for comfortable vision has increased.  Every situation is unique, so customizing your glasses is our specialty. We will ask many questions about your work environment to optimize your vision.  Finally, anti reflective coatings reduce reflections of indoor light on the lenses. The coating also increases light transmission through the lens, further reducing eye strain.

Sports Eyewear

Sports eyewear is not just for the elite athlete. Here in Colorado, the suns demanding rays cause eye fatigue for any outdoor activity. We can fit those pushing the limits on the slopes to the commuters driving to work with the sun in their eyes.

Polarized lenses offer the best reduction in glare from wet pavement, water or snow.  But not all sun lenses are created equal.  Using the most advanced impact resistant materials, premium scratch resistant and anti-reflective coatings can give you comfort and incredible clarity.

There are many choices in sports eyewear, so it is important to understand the demands of the activity. Racquet sports require increased impact resistance for both the frame and lenses. Cycling eyewear needs to deflect the wind and provide proper ventilation. All of these can be created in prescription with the latest technology in wrap design frames from manufactures like Oakley, Nike, and Bolle.  With the help of our knowledgeable opticians you will never wear a gas station pair of sunglasses again.

It is important for children to feel that they are a part of the frame selection process as well. We make the experience fun as well as teach them to take good care of them.  We have a wide selection of children’s frames from Disney to Nike.  Our Flexon frames are made with the highest quality titanium making these frames flexible for even the most active child.

Helpful Tip

Myth: Wearing glasses too much will make the eyes “dependent” on them.

Fact: Refractive errors (near-sightedness, far-sightedness, or astigmatism) change as kids get older. Many variables come into play, but most of this change is likely due to genetics and continues despite wearing glasses earlier or later or more or less. Wearing glasses does not make the eyes get worse.
