Spectacular Spex

Your Eyes

Your eyes are unique.  A personalized prescription written for your unique visual system follows a comprehensive eye examination by one of our Optometrist. Optometrist are uniquely trained to evaluate the visual system from the tearful at the front of the eye to the retina at the back of the eye.  Vision is the integration of the optical components of the eye and the brain.  Vision is a manifestation of your system health.  Conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure as well as certain medications can affect the eyeglass prescription being measured.  Our optometrist strive to measure a spectacle prescription by understanding your visual needs and by understanding the health of your visual system.  Vision is precious and our goal is to help you achieve the best vision possible. Glasses should be the optical prescription which allows you to see the world clearly and comfortably.  Moderne Eye Optometry specializes in spectacular spex – personalized frame selection and personalized lens designs so you can have the vision you need to navigate your busy day.

Frames

A lot goes into choosing an appropriate frame to maximize clarity of vision and comfortable spectacle wear.  Our Opticians can help you choose the shape and size and aesthetic based on your prescription.  Our Opticians are licensed professionals with years of experience fitting and trouble shooting prescriptions to maximize clarity and comfort of vision.  Optical services ultimately delivers to you the clear and comfortable vision promised by a good vision examination.  If the frame does not fit, the quality of your vision with the prescription lenses may not be optimal and you may experience discomfort such as headaches.  Frames don’t have to be pricey, but they do have to be fit properly.  Moderne Eye Optometry carries frames that are completely covered by insurance plans as well as mid-range and high-end and low cost frame lines.
