Three reasons: quality, value, and convenience. We select top quality frames and lenses to provide you with the sharpest, most comfortable vision possible. We also work closely with your eye doctor to insure that you receive the very best optics. Our American Board Certified opticians are trained to assist you with all your vision needs. As our patient, we’re happy to provide free adjustments and minor repairs for the life of your prescription. Whenever your glasses need an adjustment, just stop by Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm and we will be happy to service your glasses at no charge. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed!
Prescription glasses can take anywhere from 3 to 10 days, depending on lens design and specialty treatments. Some of the more advanced options and digital free-form designs may take longer.
Ongoing advancements in lens technology provide more options than ever for sharper vision, reduced distortion and lighter, thinner materials. Our opticians will guide you through all the choices to find the eyewear that works best for you.
Most eyeglass prescriptions expire in one year because your eyes may change. It’s also important to have your eyes checked regularly for more serious complications. If you have a problem like glaucoma, cataracts or retinal disease, the earlier the problem is detected, the better chance of successful treatment.
We have a wide range of choices, from reliable budget eyewear to some of the finest designer frames in the world. We believe that quality eyewear should be affordable, functional and provide excellent vision. Many of our patients delight in wearing the latest designs in frames and optics, while others prefer sturdy, functional eyewear. Our opticians specialize in guiding you to eyewear that is the perfect fit for your taste and budget. Whatever you desire, we can probably save you money and help you look great at the same time!
You will benefit from an anti-reflection coating if you experience annoying glare when driving at night, playing sports or working on a computer. That’s why anti-reflection coatings are one of the most popular lens options today. We highly recommend the new HOYA EX3 coating. It provides the highest level of light transmission, which means more comfortable vision and an elegant look. This new coating offers extreme reflection protection and extreme scratch resistance—it’s more durable than glass! EX3 also features an improved hydrophobic layer, providing a finish that resists smudges, fingerprints, dirt and water.
MyStyle lenses are the newest free-form optics technology designed by HOYA Labs, also known as the Free-Form Lens Company. This new generation of optics provides the most personally customized lens in the world. The fitting of this lens is a highly specialized process that uses a computer application to measure and integrate several elements. First, our opticians will measure and integrate your prescription, pupillary distance, progressive optics height, frame style, vertex distance (the distance from the front of your eye to the back of the lens), pantoscopic lens tilt angle, and face form angle. We’ll also evaluate the different ways you use your eyes throughout the day and factor in your lifestyle needs. Then we’ll and enter this information into the computer application, which creates a fully personalized lens just for you. Many patients report they are experiencing the sharpest, most comfortable vision ever—and these custom lenses are surprisingly affordable. Click here

Yes, because it will help us ensure a perfect fit. If necessary, we do have frame tracers that enable you to keep wearing your frame while waiting for new lenses. Keep in mind that it’s important to have a pair of back-up glasses in case of emergency. So if your doctor is prescribing new lenses, now might be the perfect time to start using your current pair of glasses as a back-up.
As with most products and services, you usually get what you pay for. The market is literally flooded with cheap eye glasses. There are “knock off” frames pretending to be quality brands and fake sunglasses as well. In some cases, only the advertised item is lower in price—and that item is not usually the highest quality. Options you may need to achieve your best possible vision are often priced higher, or not available at all. In the end, you could end up purchasing eyewear that won’t work well for you.
Incorrectly interpreted prescriptions or lenses that are improperly manufactured could reduce your visual acuity or even damage your vision. Lenses that do not meet impact standards can be hazardous to wear at work or while playing certain sports. Likewise, prescription sunglasses that fail to protect against ultraviolet radiation can damage your vision, because UV rays contribute to macular degeneration, cataracts, and retinal disease.
At Medical Eye Center, we believe it’s important to buy from trusted eyewear professionals. Inferior prescription lenses and sunglasses come with serious potential problems. You don’t have to buy the most expensive glasses. It pays, however, to make a well-informed decision. Protect your healthy vision with quality eyewear. It will save you time, money, and peace of mind.
When you choose Medical Eye Center, your frames have been crafted with the highest quality materials, and your lenses have been made with the most technologically advanced and durable treatments available. Your new frames are guaranteed against breakage, during normal use, for one full year from date of purchase. Lenses, if scratched and unwearable, will be replaced one time at no cost to you within one year of purchase. If you select EX-3 anti-reflective coating on your eyeglass lenses, your warranty is extended to 2 years. This warranty does not cover loss, theft, or minor scratches and chips which have no effect on your vision. This is a one-time only policy and the lens will be replaced with the original prescription.
It is very important to keep a back-up pair of glasses with your current prescription in the event you cannot wear your contacts for health reasons. When you purchase your contact lenses at Medical Eye Center, you are entitled to discounts on prescription glasses and sunglasses. When traveling, it’s always important to have a back-up option, just in case.
We participate with VSP and many other vision and insurance plans. Most plans provide some reimbursement for eye glasses, but rarely cover the complete cost. It’s a good idea to check with your insurance company before your exam in order to understand your vision benefits.
We would be happy to call and have your prescription faxed to us. You’ll just need to sign a records release form in accordance with patient privacy regulations.
