And much more.
Not only are our frames the newest style, but our lenses are state of the art.
Digital Freeform Technology
New technology has emerged for creating a superior progressive lens. Before digital freeform technology, lenses were created by taking a lens blank and molding it to fit the patient's prescription. Digital Freeform Technology starts with the patient and creates the lens around them. The resulting lens has more consistent optical performance. Instead of "good" vision, you can achieve "high-definition" vision. Schedule your eye exam today to experience what digital freeform technology can do for you!
What's New in Contact Lenses?
We pride ourselves in staying on the forefront of optometry. We have all of the latest contact lens styles and brands available. The newest technology in contact lenses is known as silicone hydrogel. This material allows for a more oxygen permeable contact lens. Getting more oxygen to the cornea throughout the day can make your eyes and your lenses feel much more comfortable. There is also research showing that the more oxygen you can get to your cornea, the healthier your eye is. This silicone hydrogel lens is safer to sleep in because of the benefits your cornea gets during the day. There are also many options available for patients with astigmatism and presbyopia
Daily Disposable Contact Lenses
Another modality of contact lens wear that is growing in popularity is the daily disposable contact lens. Daily disposable lenses are one the most comfortable and safest types of contact lenses. You do not have to worry about keeping them clean or how old the lens is. You simply throw your contact lenses away and get out a new pair each day, thus eliminating the need for contact lens solution and cases. This can be great for patients of all ages, especially patients who only want to wear them for sports, going to the lake, or special occasions.
What about Multifocals?
Have you been hearing a lot about multifocal contact lenses? We have a variety of multifocal (or bifocal) contact lenses to try. If you are a candidate for this type of lens, you could find yourself becoming less reliant on your reading glasses. The technology of these lenses is constantly evolving to allow you to achieve better vision at all distances. Schedule an eye exam to find out if you are a good candidate for this interesting new technology.
Are you on a computer during your work day? Are you tired of tilting your head back to comfortably see your computer through your progressive lenses? If so, we recommend a pair of computer glasses. Choosing the correct lens design for your activities of daily living is very important. New technology has given us a variety of lenses designed specifically for all near and computer work that are primarily worn at your computer/desk. Computer glasses have a wide intermediate viewing area paired with a wide near viewing area. This means you can easily view your work area while maintaining a normal, comfortable head position.
The lenses our optometrists use to determine your glasses prescription are treated with anti-reflective treatment (AR). If you choose not to incorporate AR treatment, you can lose up to 15% of the quality of your vision due to reflecting light. AR treatment is used to aid in the reduction of glare such as from computer screens, night driving, and fluorescent lighting. This is especially helpful for your students, who look at whiteboards and computer screens under fluorescent lighting in the classroom. Glare can cause headaches, eyestrain, and a decrease in vision. Anti-reflective treatment reduces this effect by eliminating reflections of light. Thanks to advances in AR treatments, these lenses now include a scratch-resistant treatment, and repel fingerprints, dust and even water.
There is no longer a need to own a prescription pair of dress glasses and sunglasses; you can have both in one pair. Transition lenses darken while outdoors and quickly fade back to clear while indoors. These lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB radiation.

The Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) proved that over time, patients who take a combination of antioxidants, zinc, and copper can decrease their risk of developing advanced macular degeneration. There is now more research also showing the importance of lutein in regards to macular health. Based on this information, SBH has created a supplement with all of this included in one multivitamin.
