Eyeglasses Q&A

What are the different types of eyeglass lenses available?

Mission Viejo Optometric Center offers the latest American and European designer eyewear collections in a range of colors, styles, and materials, including stainless steel, plastic, and titanium. There is a range of different lenses and frames to choose from:


Transition lenses respond to changing light and act almost as sunglasses to protect you from the sun, turning darker when you transition from being indoors to the bright sunlight outside.


Crizal No-Glare lenses offer crystal-clear vision and are particularly resistant to smudges and scratches.


Anti-reflective lenses work well to eliminate glare and enable more light to get to your eyes.

Progressive lenses

Varilux® progressive lenses transition smoothly between parts with different focal lengths to seamlessly correct your vision at all distances.

Polarized lenses

Polarized lenses have a special filter that blocks intense reflected light and reduces glare.

Bifocal lenses

Bifocal lenses have two distinct viewing areas to help correct vision.

High index and aspheric

High index and aspheric lenses are manufactured to be thinner at the edges and lighter in weight.

Other types of lenses include photochromic lenses that change from clear to dark based on the intensity of UV radiation, and polycarbonate lenses that are up to 10 times more impact resistant than regular plastic lenses.

Mission Viejo Optometric Center offers a wide range of innovative brands, including:

  • Ray-Ban®
  • Maui Jim®
  • Silhouette®
  • Nike

These are just a few of the brands you can choose from, and there are also other types of specialty eyewear available at Mission Viejo Optometric Center, such as sports eyewear for children.

What are the right glasses for me?

Dr. Lau helps you choose the right glasses. It’s helpful to consider the following things when trying out a pair of glasses, such as:

  • How well do they help you see?
  • How comfortable are they to wear?
  • How much do you like the way they look?
  • Are there other additional benefits, such as polarized lenses or anti-glare?
  • Are they in your budget?

If these factors are satisfied, it’s likely you’ve found the right glasses. Remember that frames may also be adjusted using special in-office methods, and there are ways to take exact measurements of specific areas of your face.

What are the benefits of prescription glasses?

Prescription glasses from Mission Viejo Optometric Center offer many benefits and improve your vision in a way that’s stylish, practical, and fun.

Modern technology allows for more fashionable, comfortable, effective, and durable prescription eyewear.

Many people choose to have an extra set of glasses to use for activities like reading or driving.
