The Eye Exam

Best Place to Buy Eyeglasses in Fort Myers, FloridaBefore you try on frames, we will want you to have a comprehensive eye and vision examination. If you haven’t had one lately, this is all the more reason to make an appointment. These days, computer eye strain can mean more frequent changes in your vision correction prescription, so you’ll want to keep your eyes feeling their best. Furthermore, many eye and vision problems and diseases have no symptoms, so periodic exams are an important part of maintaining healthy vision. Adults between the ages of 18 and 60 should have routine eye exams every two years, and those over age 60 should have them every year.

Finding Frames

To find frames and lenses to match your style and personality, it’s important to consider the shape and size of your face as well as the style and color of your hair and color of your skin. At Elmquist, we offer many frame varieties in our Optical Boutique — plastic or metal, full or half rim, narrow or broad, and different colors, shapes and angles, such as rectangular, oval or round.

We truly have endless choices, and the best part is, you get to try before you buy. Our state-of-the-art Visioffice® measuring system allows you to see exactly how your new eyewear will look before you purchase it. With this system, our Elmquist trained professionals take a single measurement to record several eye position measurements to create a unique eyeglasses frame and lens solution just for you.

Choosing a Lens

Lenses are more than just vision correction these days, you can choose various lens materials and coatings to best suit your lifestyle. Do you spend long hours in front of a computer? If so, you might want to consider our Shamir Computer or Shamir WorkSpace lenses custom-designed for the work environment.

High-index lenses are particularly well-suited for people who have a strong prescription. These glasses are made of a very dense material and are therefore thinner and lighter than plastic or glass lenses, thus alleviating the awkward look of “thick Coke bottle lenses” while providing the wearer the utmost comfort of wear.

We also offer photochromic lenses that adjust depending on whether you are in full sun or a dark interior.

We help many Floridians find the perfect lenses for their active outdoor lifestyles, such as our drive-wear polarized photochromic lenses that darken behind the windshield of a car to eliminate glare, or the Crizal anti-reflective lens which eliminates nighttime glare. We also offer fully polarized lenses that block all harmful UVA and UVB rays and improve color contrast, which is particularly helpful if out on the water in a boat.
