Glasses & Contacts Q & A

Do I need corrective lenses?

Corrective lenses get their name because they correct the way your eyes interpret the light from the world around you. They change how light enters your eye, helping your eyes focus and transmit images to your brain.

Corrective lenses in the form of glasses or contact lenses can correct a range of vision problems, including:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia (age-related farsightedness)

If you have blurry vision, the only way to diagnose the cause and get treated is through a comprehensive eye exam. The team evaluates your vision to determine if you need corrective lenses to improve your sight.

In most cases, you can choose between glasses or contact lenses. If you choose contacts, the team generally recommends getting a pair of glasses to have on hand in case you can’t or don’t want to wear your contacts all the time.

What glasses are right for me?

The Bentz Eye Center team determines your glasses prescription during your eye exam. After you get your prescription, you need to select frames for your custom lenses. Bentz Eye Center has an on-site optical shop to make choosing the right glasses easier.

The optical shop stocks popular brands and trendy styles. The optical team specializes in helping you find frames that fit your face and personal preferences. You can choose between an assortment of frames and the latest in lens technology that stands up to everyday life.

You’ll get prescription lenses for your everyday glasses, but prescription sunglasses and specialty glasses, like safety goggles, are also available.

What contact lens options are available?

If you’re interested in contact lenses, the team can fit you for lenses that will be comfortable for your eyes. Your doctor measures your eyes and develops your contact lens prescription.

Contacts are available in single and multifocal varieties, and you can choose the type of lenses that best fit your lifestyle. Disposable, extended-wear, and many other options are available, including brands like Air Optix®, Bausch + Lomb® Ultra, and Biofinity®.
