Glasses Prescriptions

At Lowcountry Vision Care, you will find many choices of eyeglasses. We recognize that it can be overwhelming to figure out which lenses are perfect for you and your lifestyle. We are here to help you make the right decision. The following are short descriptions of the types of lenses your Lowcountry Vision Care offers in Pawleys Island.

Prescription Glasses in Pawleys Island

  • Single Vision Lenses: Prescribed for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
  • Bifocal: Used to correct two fields of vision.
  • Trifocal: For the intermediate area by adding a second tiny lens segment above the near vision segment. The result is three power zones.
  • Progressive lenses: Provide a smooth transition from a distance through mid to near vision.

Lens Materials at Lowcountry Vision Care

Standard eyeglass lenses are made of plastic. This material is better for tinting and more scratch-resistant polycarbonate (poly).

Poly lenses are ten times more resistant to impact than glass or plastic lenses and provide 100 percent protection from the UV rays of the sun. Polycarbonate is a good material for kid’s glasses and sports eyewear.

Lighter and thinner plastic, hi-index lenses reduce the magnified appearance that traditional lenses cause in strong prescriptions for nearsightedness.

Upgrades for Glasses

At Lowcountry Vision Care, we offer a variety of upgrades for glasses prescriptions in Pawleys Island, including:

  • Tints
  • High Definition (HD)
  • Scratch-Resistant Coating
  • Anti-Reflective (A/R) coatings
  • Photochromic
  • Polarized

Computer Glasses in Pawleys Island

Computer vision syndrome has become a widespread problem both at home and in the workplace. The computer glasses lenses are specially designed to address the eyestrain and pain caused by viewing digital screens for long periods. Computer glasses in Pawleys Island help people see at about a distance of 20 to 26 inches, which is the distance most users sit from their monitor. Glasses made for computer use often have tinted lenses to block the blue light the emanates from electronic devices.

Reading Glasses

If you have never needed corrective lenses or don’t have a prescription for glasses from Lowcountry Vision Care, you may eventually need reading glasses. A prescription is not required to get reading glasses, but your eye doctor can prescribe the correct magnification for you.
