Home » News and Events » A WORKING RELATIONSHIP


There is a persistent misconception that reliance on prescription lenses causes the eyes to become weak and lazy based on the mistaken belief that glasses and contact lenses do the work of the eyes. However, the fact is that corrective lenses merely compensate for structural defects, such as an improperly shaped eyeball or an excessively stiff lens, that prevent the eye from focusing clearly despite the best efforts of the lens muscles. By wearing corrective lenses, the wearer relieves these muscles from being tense or relaxed (depending on whether the condition to be corrected is farsightedness or nearsightedness) more often than they have to. Instead, corrective lenses enable them to work as hard as the muscles in a normal eye. Eyeglass lenses only change the light rays that the eye receives and not any part of the eye itself. Our holistic approach to eye care ensures that you get the best possible care, advice, and options for your vision needs. We provide treatment for eye diseases and eye injuries as well as offering custom contact lens fittings, help for low vision, and a large selection of frames at competitive prices.
