Do you need help choosing the frames that are right for you? Atrius Health's Massachusetts-licensed opticians will guide you through the process providing you direction on style, fit and functionality.
The Optical Shops at Atrius Health carry a wide range of frame styles and price points to meet everyone’s needs. Some of the most well-known designer frames we carry include Gucci, Dior, Calvin Klein and Giorgio Armani. We also carry the Silhouette® line of frames, one of the most popular frame styles in the world well-known for being comfortable and durable.
Children want style and parents want durability. Most Atrius Health Optical shops offer a wide selection of durable and fashionable frames for children of all ages. Children under 18 years of age must have impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses to protect their eyes.
Most people spend a lot of time choosing eyeglass frames and are unaware that the lenses available to meet their visual needs are almost as varied as the frame choices. At Atrius Health, our opticians will take the time to educate you on what is available to you and what will work best for your prescription, your work-life and your home-life.
Lens materials have changed dramatically over the years and generally provide lighter, thinner lenses that conventional plastic, regardless of your prescription strength. For the two lens materials that we offer at Atrius Health, both have the added advantage of absorbing harmful ultra violet light.
Polycarbonate lenses are lighter and thinner than conventional plastic and also more impact-resistant.
High Index lenses bend light differently so that stronger prescriptions can be made thinner.
There’s a Lens for that: Different Lenses for Different Uses
These days, you can have more choices for eyewear that optimize your eyesight for a specific environment or look. Need to enhance your golf game? There is a lens for that. Want to wear a small, narrow frame? There is a lens for that, too.
Progressive addition lenses help you to see naturally from one field of vision to the next. There are many types of progressive lenses available on the market today, and while they all offer the traditional viewing areas - distance, intermediate and near - some can address more specialized needs, like the golfing green.
Computer lenses provide an excellent second pair to complement your primary pair of progressive lenses. Computer lenses have a larger intermediate area creating a more relaxed comfortable visual experience, greatly reducing visual fatigue.
Anti-reflective lenses reduce nighttime glare from headlights, taillights and street lights for safer driving. They also reduce the causes of eyestrain and fatigue by reducing reflections from computer monitors and overhead lights. Anti-reflective lenses look better too. Less glare means fewer reflections so your lenses are almost invisible allowing people to see your eyes not your lenses.
Protecting your eyes: Outdoor Glasses, Sunglasses, and Sports eyewear
Outdoor glasses and Sunglasses
No amount of ultraviolet (UV) exposure is healthy for your eyes. UV damage to the eyes is cumulative over time and often irreversible. In almost half of your normal daily activities, such as running errands, gardening, playing golf or walking the dog, your eyes are susceptible to harmful UV rays. Eye diseases associated with UV exposure include cataracts and possibly age-related macular degeneration and premature skin aging.
There are many options available to limit the UV exposure to your eyes. Polarized lenses offer the most protection and are available in most lens types and come in gray and brown. Our Optical Shops carry many different sunglass lines including Ray Ban®, Maui Jim®, and several other designer sunglasses.
Most lenses are also available in Transitions®. Transitions lenses are everyday lenses that automatically adapt to changing light conditions. Transitions lenses are clear as an ordinary clear lens indoors and at night but adapt as light conditions change.
More than 600,000 eye injuries related to sports and recreation occur each year. The Atrius Health Optical shops carry a wide selection of sports eyewear for adults and children. Whether your sport is baseball, racquetball, soccer or cycling we can help you find the sport eyewear to protect your eyes.
