Blurred vision can interfere with everyday activities, making it more difficult to drive, read, or work comfortably.
Glasses are an easy way to see more clearly. With a range of designer options at GW Eye Associates, we can find frames to match your style.
So why should you choose eyeglasses?
A Popular, Trusted Way to Restore Your Vision & Quality of Life
Easy to Use
With glasses, you simply put them on and you are good to go. They are much simpler to use than contact lenses and comfortable for all types of patients, even those with sensitive or dry eyes.
Designer Glasses and Premium Lenses to Fit Your Lifestyle
For the convenience of our patients, GW Eye Associates offers a full-service onsite optical center. Our extensive selection of frames, lenses, and contacts is designed to meet the diverse needs of our patients. We strive to provide the most up-to-date technologies and designer eyewear styles to ensure that the glasses you purchase at our La Jolla, CA, office are both durable and comfortable.
Designing Glasses to Meet Your Needs
At our office, Dr. Gordon Wong and his expert staff of opticians will help you design a pair of glasses that will meet the needs of your lifestyle. Whether they're to help you see the computer or to block out the glare of the sun, we have just the right answer to your problem. Our team is happy to provide a range of vision correction and ophthalmology services.
- Are you bothered by glare, especially at night? Try glasses with an anti-glare coating. This is the same coating that is used for camera lenses.
- Do your glasses seem too heavy? Try a frame made of titanium. They are lighter, and stronger than ordinary metal frames.
- Do your eyeglass lenses look too thick? Try a lens material with a higher index of refraction. That will make the lenses up to 50 percent thinner and lighter. You can also choose an eyeglass frame that is smaller, thereby using less lens material.
- Do your prescription lenses make you look bug-eyed? Aspheric lenses are flatter and can achieve a more natural appearance.
These are just a few examples of how we can help you design a pair of eyeglasses to best meet your needs. Rimless frames and drill-mounted frames are available in a variety of styles for our patients.
While vision plays a big part of life, style is equally important. Eyewear is the fashion statement for the next millennium. Look around and you will see how true it is. Remember, not making a fashion statement is still making a statement. Our first impression of others is visual. Eyewear is part of that visual presentation.
Our office displays eyeglass frame styles that vary from colorful and fashion forward, to elegant and contemporary. Many of these designers offer both glasses and sunglasses and most sunglass designs can be customized to incorporate your eyeglass prescription. Oakley and Maui Jim each have their own lab which can put your prescription into their trademark Plutonite® polycarbonate lenses.
Many designer eyewear styles are exclusive and are only available through our office. Our selection is large and includes designer eyewear collections such as:
Silhouette’s patented High-Tech Titanium and proprietary SPX material provide unparalleled flexibility and durability; SPX plastic is twice as strong as acetate, most commonly used by other eyewear brands. This material revolution set the standard of excellence and high quality in the eyewear industry, and Silhouette as a leader in innovation, style, and design.
