If you need corrective lenses, Wolcott Optical has an extensive selection of prescription glasses for you to choose from. Some people prefer to wear prescription glasses rather than contact lenses while others like to be able to switch between contact lenses and eyeglasses. Others only need their prescription for certain things, such as reading. Regardless, everyone has their own unique stylistic preferences and face shape. Your eyeglasses need not just be a visual aid; they can reflect your taste in fashion too, so that you can feel confident when you wear them.
Wolcott Optical carries a wide variety of eyeglasses brands so that you can find the ideal prescription glasses for your needs. The frames we carry come in many different styles, sizes, shapes, materials, and colors. There are several different lenses you may need for your eyeglasses. We offer single vision, bifocal, and trifocal lenses that can come with additions such as anti-reflective coating or polarization to ensure that your lenses are perfectly suited to you. Combined with the right frames, you can see the world clearly and confidently.
What Do You Need Before Purchasing Prescription Glasses?
Prior to obtaining your prescription glasses, there is some information you will need to gather.
- In order to order your glasses, we will need your prescription information. Your eye doctor should give you a copy of your prescription for free when you ask. If it has been more than a year since your last eye exam, you will want to schedule one prior to ordering your new glasses, in case your prescription has changed.
- You will need to know your pupillary distance. This refers to the distance between the centers of your pupils. This is typically included in your prescription, but not always. If it isn’t, you can ask your optician to measure your pupillary distance for you.
A glasses prescription is different from a contact lens prescription. Your eye doctor will typically give you both your prescriptions if you wear contact lenses so that you can order glasses if you want to. This may not always be the case. You should ensure that you have a glasses prescription prior to getting prescription glasses, as a contact lens prescription is not the same.
We do all pupillary distance measurements, etc. ourselves. We are all opticians. All of our customers need to provide a copy of their prescription and Wolcott’s will do the rest.
What To Consider When Getting Prescription Glasses
When getting prescription glasses, you will want to choose the right type of lenses and frame size for you. The experts here at Wolcott Optical can help you ensure that your prescription glasses fit well and are comfortable on your face. We can also help you determine the type of lenses that you need, whether they are single vision, progressive, bifocal, or something else.
You also want to consider your overall face shape and your personal style. People aren’t very inclined to wear their glasses if they do not feel confident or comfortable in them. That’s why we carry such a wide range of eyeglasses, so as to ensure that we can help you find the frames that speak to you.
If you like bold statements, you may opt for frames in bright colors or with fun patterns. If you prefer something more subdued and refined, you may opt for rimless frames or frames that are more streamlined in neutral colors. The options are endless.
Some of the brands we carry include: Kate Spade, Hugo Boss, Nike, Rag & Bone, Jimmy Choo, and many, many more. We strive to provide high-quality prescription glasses that fit your style and face and work with your budget.
