It is impossible to give universal advice on choosing the perfect frames and lenses. But there is one golden rule: when choosing frames you should consider not only their appearance but also discuss the following questions with a specialist (optometrist): Where and how, mostly, are you going to use your glasses? What are your habits? Do you plan to wear your glasses while playing sports, for example? Eyeglass lenses have different optical powers, which are expressed in dioptres. The optical power is determined by fitting glasses. Size of the frame - the larger the frame the more aberration (distortion) may be at the edges of the lens.

What frame fits on the lens?

Metal and plastic frames are equally suitable. In particular, active activities such as riding a motorcycle, running or playing ball require curved frames to protect the eyes from wind, insects, debris, etc.

How do you know if eyeglass lenses aren't right?

You can tell if lenses are not suitable by certain signs. It is important to understand that there is an adjustment period for any optics. Symptoms of improperly fitting glasses are as follows: headache; dizziness; a feeling of sand, increased tearfulness of the eyes; high fatigue of the organs of vision.

Why do my eyes hurt when wearing new glasses?

Eye muscles learn to compensate for changing visual demands. Because these muscles and focusing systems suddenly have to work differently, you may develop headaches, dizziness, or just a feeling that something is wrong with your eyes. (This also applies to contact lenses).

Which glass or plastic eyeglass lenses are better?

Glass makes it difficult to make a progressive or aspherical lens. Also, glass lenses do not fit rimless frames. Plastic lenses are twice as light as glass lenses, so glasses with them are more comfortable to wear for a long time, and plastic lenses are much less traumatic than glass lenses. Firstly, plastic itself is more resistant to breakage, and secondly, its splinters are not as sharp and dangerous.

Which lenses for glasses are more expensive?

The thinner and stronger the lenses, the more expensive they are. Lenses made of photochromic, polarizing or sunglasses are more expensive than colorless (clear) lenses. Lenses can be stock or prescription lenses. Stock lenses are cheaper - they are ready-made, in stock, and can be quickly fitted to eyeglasses.

I am very happy with my experiences here. The staff are always helpful, accommodating, and knowledgeable in regards to both the business and insurance. I recently moved over an hr away from Raleigh and still continue to use them as my primary eye care provider.

My child worked with Kim Arnold for vision therapy. Kim was amazing and so personable; my child really looked forward to going to see her on a weekly basis. Vision therapy is hard work and can be quite tiring, however, Kim makes it enjoyable. Thank you, Kim!

I discovered Leon Byrum Opticians about 3 years ago. I'm so glad that I did. I have a special need...safety glasses...and I would like them to look a little stylish. The chunky safety glasses of yester-year were just not cutting it anymore. Getting older is bad enough, but getting older with ugly glasses...well that's just awful. Yet, I had a hard time finding more than one or two frame styles in all of the optical shops that I visited. In fact, for years, I was led to believe that there were only one or two frame styles for safety glasses. That is...until I discovered from Jim Daughtridge at Leon Byrum Opticians that there are whole lines of safety glass frames. Jim used to go directly to the manufacturing plants in the area and provide the safety glasses to the plant employees. Jim also took the time to explain to me about the differences in the lens among the various progressive lens manufacturers. This was very helpful as I had not understood this before. I not only get my glasses from them, but also go back every so often to get my glasses adjusted. With the work I do, they get bumped pretty frequently. Jim and his wife Betty Daughtridge are always welcoming, happy to accommodate my needs and interested in me as a person. When you see how they treat their other customers, your know you are in the right place. I highly recommend Leon Byrun Opticians. You won't go wrong and you will be helping a local business.
