Everyone’s eyes are different. Here at Vision World of Parkchester, we believe in providing the most personalized care possible in order to meet every patient’s specific and individual needs. Our opticians here at our Parkchester optical shop can walk you through our variety of lens options that can improve the quality of your lenses by suiting your specific needs. Some of our options include high index lenses, aspheric lenses and trivex lenses. High index lenses are a great option for those who have a strong prescription. While traditional lenses may be large and heavy for those with strong glasses prescriptions, high index lenses are made with a unique plastic that reflects light differently, allowing the lens to be lighter and thinner. These lenses will not only improve the appearance of your frames but they will also make wearing your lenses significantly more comfortable.

Aspheric lenses can improve your appearance when wearing your glasses. Stronger lens prescriptions can distort the appearance of your eyes due to their magnification, but these lenses decrease any such distortion and retain the natural appearance of your eye through the lens. Trivex lenses are often suggested for those with an active lifestyle or for children. They provide clear vision while remaining impact resistant. These are the perfect option for accident prone children or adults, those who perform heavy manual work, or play intensive sports.

Here at Vision World of Parkchester we are determine to help you and your family find frames and lenses suit you and your lifestyle best. Visit our Parkchester optical shop to explore your options with any of our helpful opticians who are here to aid you in finding the perfect vision correction option for you.

At Vision World of Parkchester, the number one Parkchester eyeglasses store, we are proud to offer a wide variety of optical goods and services so that you know you can always find what you need right here with us. If you depend on single vision lenses to see clearly each day, you will be happy to know that we have several different single vision lens options for you to choose from at our Parkchester eyeglasses store. If you use single vision lenses, it means you use your eyeglasses for one specific reason, such as distance vision, close-up vision, or intermediate vision.

In order for you to get the very most out of your single vision lenses, you may want to consider some of the specialty upgrades we have available for single vision lenses at Vision World of Parkchester. For example, many customers choose to have their single vision eyeglasses equipped with polycarbonate lenses. Polycarbonate lenses are an excellent option to consider because they are much more lightweight than regular lenses, and they also have an increased resistance to impact. Similarly, customers are also frequently drawn to high-index single vision lenses because they are much thinner and lighter, making them easier and more comfortable to wear.

If you spend a lot of time outdoors, or if you simply are sick of switching back and forth from your prescription eyeglasses to your prescription sunglasses, photochromic single vision lenses may be the perfect option for you. Photochromic lenses utilize the latest technologies that allow the lenses to lighten or darken depending on your surroundings at the time. These are only some of the many single vision lens options we have available at our Parkchester eyeglasses store. We would love to give you a more personalized recommendation during your next visit with us.

If you are interested in learning more about the various eye care products and services available at our Parkchester eyeglasses store, please visit the main Vision World of Parkchester website for additional information. If you have any specific questions or concerns, do not hesitate to reach out to our staff for assistance.

Optical Store Westchester Village

Astigmatism is a common vision problem. In fact, most people have some degree of astigmatism, but may not even know it. Astigmatism is an optical condition that results blurred vision due to an irregularly shaped cornea, also known as the clear front cover of the eye. When the cornea has an irregular shape, it prevents the light from focusing properly on the retina, which results in blurred vision at all distances. Astigmatism can also sometimes be caused by curvature inside the eye. The treatment for astigmatism is dependent upon the severity of the condition. If someone has slight astigmatism, it usually doesn’t affect vision. Therefore, no treatment would be required. However treatment would be needed for more severe astigmatism (larger amounts) because of the symptoms associate with it. Larger amounts of astigmatism can cause symptoms such as headaches, distorted and blurred vision and eye discomfort. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms we recommend that you make an appointment for a comprehensive eye exam (which will test for astigmatism and other eye conditions and/or diseases) at our Westchester Village optical store, Vision World of Parkchester.

Eyeglass Prescriptions Westchester Village

Eyeglass Prescriptions Westchester Village

Astigmatism can be confirmed through a comprehensive eye exam at our Westchester Village optical store. The exam may include testing one’s visual acuity, keratometry (measures the curvature of the cornea) and refraction. Testing for astigmatism involves measuring how the eyes focus light and also determines the optical power of lenses that are necessary to compensate for the person’s reduced vision. Once the test is complete and astigmatism is confirmed, there are several options to provide the patient with visual clarity, which include but are not limited to getting corrective eyewear (eyeglasses or contact lenses).

If our expert optometrist confirms that you have astigmatism, you will be provided with an option of getting prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. Our entire professional, caring staff at Westchester Village optical store, Vision World of Parkchester is dedicated to providing you with the exceptional optical products and services you need and deserve. We have a fantastic selection of designer yet affordable eyeglasses in our store. We also have a variety of different contact lenses if you prefer them. We will help you to select the corrective that is best for you; that provides you with clear vision, comfort and matches your personality and lifestyle.

Opticians Westchester Village

There has never been a better time than right now to come in to Vision World of Parkchester. With the end of the year fast approaching, there are some good reasons to use your health benefits now before the new year comes. Our Westchester Village opticians accept several different insurance programs, so make an appointment for your yearly comprehensive eye exam, update your current prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, or fill a new prescription for corrective lenses.

Prescription Eyewear Westchester Village

If your insurance carries a yearly deductible, this is an excellent time to visit our Westchester Village opticians. In January, your new deductible will apply but if you’ve used up this year’s then you should consider optimizing your budget by taking advantage now instead of paying out of pocket later. The same logic applies if your insurance has annual maximums and you have room left to reach that cap before January. Why should you leave it on the table when you can use it to take care of your eye health and your vision? Also, those with money in an FSA (flexible spending account) may have a balance left to use before the end of the current year. And with the Affordable Care Act kicking in at the beginning of 2014, this is a perfect opportunity to take care of something as important as your yearly comprehensive eye exam, eyeglasses, or contact lenses.

Among the insurances we accept are Fidelis, HIP (for glasses only), Medicaid, Patrolman’s Benevolent Association, Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and GHI. The others on our list are 1199, 32-BJ, Davis Vision, DC-37, Guildnet, Health First, Local 6, Local 237, Local 371, Metroplus, UFT, and Visiting Nurse Service. If you have insurance that is not listed here, call us and ask. Our Westchester Village opticians are always interested in trying to help.

So don’t delay. The year will be over before you know it and we wouldn’t want you to miss out on benefits you are entitled to. Call our Westchester Village opticians today and arrange an appointment for an eye exam or if you are just interested in getting glasses or contacts, come on in.

Eyeglass Store Parkchester

Eyeglass Store Parkchester

Ever since the infamous nickname “four eyes” became a bit too popular, people have been trying to hide the fact that they needed to wear glasses. Some very popular designers have joined ranks with eyeglass manufacturers in an attempt to lure consumers back into wearing prescription eyeglasses. It’s no surprise since research showed that over 168.5 million United States residents use vision correction such as eyeglasses or contacts, which represents 75 percent of our country’s total adult population. At our Parkchester eyeglass store, Vision World of Parkchester, we take vision care very seriously and are honest when asked, “Which type of vision correction is better?”

Vision Correction Parkchester

Vision Correction Parkchester

It really is ultimately up to you to choose what works best for you and your lifestyle. The key is taking the time to understand what your specific lifestyle demands are. For example, someone who is very trendy may prefer glasses because they add a certain sense of unique and intriguing style to your overall look. Your vision is corrected immediately once you put them on, and the mere convenience of being able to simply take them off and on. Glasses from our Parkchester eyeglass store may also last longer if they are taken care of properly. Many people with slight vision problems prefer glasses because they can just pull them out for reading then tuck them away for the remainder of the day. In addition, more insurance company’s cover glasses over contact lenses with a better percentage rate of out of pocket expenses.

Glasses may also be more reliable, since contacts can drop, fall-out, rip, or get lost, and you may not be able to see until you get new ones, unless you have a spare pair. This is also why at our Parkchester eyeglass store, we recommend that our customers always have a pair of glasses, even as a back- up, when wearing contacts to correct your vision. Our customers who wear glasses can get the majority of their vision problems corrected by the lens, including double vision, blurred vision and those with astigmatism. You can also always wear your glasses regardless of what problems you may have with your eyes, such as allergy eyes, dry eyes, or infections like pinkeye, where contacts may make those conditions worse.

Parkchester Bronx Optical Store

Getting regular eye exams is extremely important. There are certain eye diseases and conditions that may not present any symptoms until the advanced stages. These put you at risk for serious vision problems. Early detection is the key to stopping vision problems from progressing or hopefully preventing them from occurring in the first place. Glaucoma testing is something that you need to have done on a regular basis. Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that cause damage to the optic nerve. As the damage progresses, vision loss increases and eventually leads to blindness. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness. Abnormally high intraocular pressure is usually, but not always, the cause of glaucoma. Therefore, it’s important for the optometrist to measure your optical pressure when you get your eye examined at our Parkchester Bronx optical store.

Glaucoma Testing Parkchester

Glaucoma Testing Parkchester

Unfortunately, glaucoma can develop so gradually that one may not even realize they have it. Glaucoma has a relevant nickname. It is often called “the silent thief of sight “for this very reason. Patients may not notice any symptoms at all until it’s in its advanced stages. Primary open-angle glaucoma, which is the most common type, has no noticeable signs or symptoms. Due to the fact that you may not experience any symptoms until it has progressed to its advanced stages and the fact that glaucoma eventually causes blindness, getting glaucoma testing on a regular basis is critical to your vision health. Early diagnosis and treatment can help to minimize optic nerve damage and limit glaucoma related vision loss. This is why we highly recommend that you schedule an appointment with one of our expert optometrists at our Parkchester Bronx optical store, Vision World of Parkchester to get a comprehensive eye exam (with glaucoma testing as part of it).

Our Parkchester Bronx optical store, Vision World of Parkchester is truly dedicated to each one of our clients. We do everything in our power to make your experience with us a convenient and affordable as possible, while providing you with the exceptional products and services that you deserve. We look forward to meeting you and helping you with all your eye care needs very soon.

If you have been putting off coming in for a comprehensive eye exam, our East Bronx discount eyewear store can give you four good reasons to stop delaying. First and most important, regular eye exams are important not only for determining your vision correction needs but also to be screened for eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and retinopathy. Many eye diseases do not have any obvious symptoms in their early stages but they are most easily treatable in their early stages. So coming in for a yearly eye exam will allow us to catch any problems before they become more severe. The second reason to schedule your eye exam is that right now we are offering a special for only $149 that includes an eye exam along with a complete pair of eyeglasses and a pair of contact lenses. Third, if you are strictly a contact lens wearer, get yourself an eye exam and 2 boxes of contact lenses for only $99. Or just get an eye exam for only $39. That’s a lot to choose from, depending on your needs. We offer something for everyone.

If you are simply thinking of getting a new pair of eyeglasses, either to replace or supplement your existing ones, take advantage of our offer of $100 off a complete pair of eyeglasses. You can also get a pair of designer frames free- up to a value of $229- when you purchase a complete pair of eyeglasses. Or buy one pair of eyeglasses and get the second pair free. At our East Bronx discount eyewear store, our opticians will help advise you and fit you perfectly, regardless of which offer you choose.

Are you looking to spice up your look this season? Or are you simply tired of the same old boring style of ophthalmic frames you tend to reach for every time you purchase a new pair of eyeglasses to correct your vision? Many of us play it safe to blend in at work, or simply because we worry a certain pair will be too outlandish. Shopping for eyeglasses can truly be a headache for many of us, but your local East Bronx eyeglasses retailer can help you find the right fit for your face in a way that is so much more than personal style choice. At Vision World of Parkchester our staff are always to guide you towards the right pair of frames to help you put your best face forward.

One of the first aspects your welcoming and knowledgeable opticians at your trusted East Bronx eyeglasses store will take under consideration with you is the general structure of your face. Each individual has their own unique set of features, but when it comes to the face of your shape, they can often be placed into one of a dozen categories. We often hear these mentioned at a salon, such as a heart-shaped face. Whether you have a square shaped jawline, diamond facial features, or a more rounded appearance, our staff can help you find the perfect frames to put your best face forward.

Frames are more than their shape though. Color can play a huge role in helping you create the perfect look for your unique look and personal style. Step away from the same old thin metal frames, or plain black plastic, and try something a little different this year that will accentuate your best features. For example, if you have stunning green eyes, go for a pair of frames that will match them to bring out your gorgeous features. You can also select frame colors to compliment your skin tone, such as cool versus warm tones, as well as your hair color. From neutrals to bright pops of colors, your local East Bronx eyeglasses specialists have the perfect pair in stock for you.

At Vision World of Parkchester our welcoming and knowledgeable East Bronx eyeglasses experts can be your personal stylists in the world of ophthalmic frames to help you see clearly in a beautiful way. With low prices and great specials availably, such as buy one get one free, or $100 off of a complete pair of eyeglasses, Vision World makes it easy to afford the look you want, without having to compromise style over a budget, no matter small your price range may be. Our wide selection guarantees we will always have exactly what you are looking for, at exactly the right price. With Vision World clear vision is affordable and beautiful.
