Same Day Prescription Glasses
For patients with a variety of vision problems, glasses are often the preferred choice. Glasses provide patients with a way to complete their everyday tasks, such as reading, writing, driving, and watching TV. While some individuals can wait to get their prescription filled, others need theirs immediately. For those individuals, same-day prescription glasses are a great option.
At GW Eye Associates, serving La Jolla, CA, Del Mar, CA, and surrounding areas, Drs. Gordon and Wildon Wong can perform a comprehensive examination to provide you with the best vision-correction option. Our doctors work with individuals to personalize treatment plans and provide them with the most favorable outcome.
Who Are the Best Candidates?
Most patients are good candidates for same-day glasses at our La Jolla location. If you have a standard prescription, you should qualify. Patients who have more complicated prescriptions or more extensive vision needs might require extra time on their glasses. Additionally, if your lenses need to be modified, such as adding a scratch-resistant or anti-glare coating, you may not qualify to get your glasses the same day.
Individuals can also get same-day glasses when the pair of frames of their choice is in-stock at our office. Our medical team works to provide glasses to patients as soon as possible.
The Eye Examination
We provide comprehensive vision tests at our practice. Our doctors perform a variety of tests to check your visual acuity, eye pressure, and the appearance of your eyes. We work diligently to assess your eyes and see if they are functioning effectively. Our doctors want to ensure you have optimal eye health.
If you already wear glasses, it is important to bring them to ensure that your prescription is accurate. If your prescription has become inadequate, we can make any needed adjustments. Our physicians can discuss all the best glasses options to correct your vision.
What Is Involved with Same-Day Glasses?
Since we have an on-site lab, we can produce glasses quicker, including providing you with same-day prescription glasses. Our experienced technicians fill your prescription to get you back to your daily routine in no time.
Once you choose your frames, we can provide high-quality lenses to improve your vision. Whether patients suffer from farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism, glasses offer better sight. Additionally, our practice makes sure that your glasses fit appropriately to ensure your comfort.
Caring for Your Glasses
Your doctor will provide you with instructions to care for and protect your glasses. To keep your lenses clean, you should rinse them with water before wiping them or using a cleaner. When it is time to use a cleanser, make sure that it is safe for lenses. Do not use household cleansers that might contain ammonia since this can damage lenses. While it is best to let your glasses air dry, you can use a clean cloth that is soft and lint-free.
When it is time to take your glasses off, do not lay them on surfaces with the lenses down. This can cause scratches and other damage. It is best to keep your glasses in a case to keep them protected.
