When it comes to purchasing glasses, you have a plethora of options available, from big-box retailers to online stores. 

However, buying your glasses directly from your optometrist offers numerous advantages that go beyond mere convenience. These include having expert guidance when purchasing, getting the right fit, and ensuring you buy high-quality products. 

At Family Vision Care, we believe in providing our patients with the highest quality vision care and eyewear. Here’s why you should consider purchasing your glasses from us

Expert Guidance & Personalized Care

Professional Advice

One of the primary benefits of buying glasses from your optometrist is the expert guidance you receive. Optometrists and their staff are trained professionals who understand the intricacies of vision correction. They can provide personalized recommendations based on your specific needs, lifestyle, and preferences. At Family Vision Care, we take the time to understand your visual requirements, making sure you receive excellent eyewear solutions.

Tailored Recommendations

Our team has the expertise to advise you on the most suitable lens types, coatings, and frame styles. Whether you need glasses for everyday use, reading, computer work, or sports, we can tailor our recommendations to fit your unique situation.

Comprehensive Eye Exams & Accurate Prescriptions

Precise Prescriptions

An accurate prescription is crucial for optimal vision correction. When you purchase glasses from your optometrist, you benefit from comprehensive eye exams that confirm your prescription is precise and up-to-date. At Family Vision Care, our thorough eye exams not only check for an updated glasses prescription, but also potential eye health issues such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy

Holistic Eye Care

This holistic approach to eye care means that you receive glasses that are perfectly tailored to our vision needs. Additionally, if any adjustments are required after you receive your glasses, our team is readily available to make the necessary modifications. Our commitment to thorough examinations makes sure that your vision is cared for in every aspect, from diagnosis to the ideal pair of glasses. 

Quality Assurance & Warranty

High-Quality Products

Quality is a significant concern when it comes to eyewear. Glasses purchased from an optometrist typically come from reputable manufacturers known for their high standards. At Family Vision Care, we only offer frames and lenses from trusted brands, confirming durability, comfort, and excellent performance. 

Reliable Warranties

Furthermore, glasses purchased through an optometrist often come with warranties that protect against defects and damage. This peace of mind is invaluable, especially when investing in something as important as your vision. If any issues arise, you can rely on us to address them promptly and professionally. Our dedication to quality means you can trust that your glasses will serve you well and that any necessary support is just a visit away. 

Custom Fitting & Adjustments

Ideal Fit

Proper fit is essential for both comfort and effective vision correction. When you buy glasses from your optometrist, you benefit from custom fittings and adjustments. This is especially important in our patients who need progressive or bifocal lenses. It is imperative to have a trained optician obtain accurate measurements while you are wearing the frame in order to have clear and comfortable vision through your glasses once they arrive. Our experienced staff at Family Vision Care will make sure your glasses fit well, providing optimal vision and comfort throughout the day.

Avoiding Discomfort

Ill-fitting glasses can cause discomfort, headaches, and even impair your vision. By having glasses professionally fitted, you can avoid these issues and enjoy a seamless, comfortable experience. 

Access to a Wide Range of Styles & Options

Diverse Selection

Optometrists typically offer a curated selection of frames and lenses that cater to various tastes and budgets. At Family Vision Care, we understand that eyewear is not just a tool for vision correction but a fashion accessory. Our extensive collection includes everything from classic designs to the latest trends, allowing you to find frames that complement your style. 

Advanced Lens Options

We also offer advanced lens options such as anti-reflective coatings, blue light filters, and transition lenses that adapt to changing light conditions. These enhancements can significantly improve your visual experience, making everyday activities more comfortable. 

Support Local Businesses & Community

Community Investment

By purchasing your glasses from Family Vision Care, you are supporting a local business that is deeply invested in the community. Unlike large retail chains, we prioritize personalized service and building long-term relationships with our patients. Your support allows us to continue providing exceptional care and contributing to the local economy.

This relationship goes beyond a single transaction, fostering trust and making sure we can provide ongoing support and care as your vision needs to change. Your investment in our practice is also an investment in the well-being of our community.
