Eyeglass Frame & Lens Selection

Frame Selection

Common Questions during frame selection:

“Will these work with my prescription?”

Proper frame selection depends on several factors, including (but not limited to):

  • Single vision vs multifocal lenses
  • Amount and orientation of astigmatism
  • The magnitude of refractive error
  • Expected use of glasses (driving, computer/reading, sports, etc)
  • Facial characteristics
  • Skin/hair tone

“Do I look good in these?”

Eyes on Lake Norman Optometry Acquires State-of-the-Art Lab Equipment

Eyes on Lake Norman Optometry recently created their very own in-office lab by installing an all-new lens finishing equipment system. This addition will enable the staff to produce high quality eyewear for their patients on-site and therefore provide faster delivery.

Dr. Jonathan Sugarman has invested in a lens finishing equipment system from Santinelli International, the leader in the industry, to ensure that their patients will receive the best quality eyewear available based on today’s optical standards of excellence. The system produces the most accurate prescription and best-fitting lenses to ensure patient satisfaction.

Eyes on Lake Norman Optometry utilizes only the most advanced technology and eye care products available. Adding an in-office lab with the highest quality equipment available made perfect sense for this already state-of-the-art practice. With their new in-office lab, same or next-day delivery of eyewear is now possible for many patients. Dr. Sugarman (pictured) is very excited to now be able to control the process and the quality of his patient’s glasses.

Lens Materials

Proper selection of lens materials is often overlooked. An eyeglass prescription should involve more than just numbers. Have you ever purchased glasses that simply didn’t seem right? Sometimes this is due to improper selection of lens design or material.

Do you have a high prescription? Do you have astigmatism? How important is impact resistance to you? How about scratch resistance? These factors are all critical in selecting lens materials.

When prescribing glasses, the Dr. Sugarman selects the appropriate lens material or materials for you. He then communicates this to the optician to ensure that your glasses from Eyes on Lake Norman are the best pair you have ever owned.
