Frequently Asked Questions about Eyeglasses

What do you need to know when you're in the market for eyeglasses? Check out these answers to frequently asked questions provided by Carolina Vision Care in Greenville.

Who Benefits from Prescription Eyeglasses?

Prescription eyeglasses do a superb job of correcting vision in people who suffer from refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. They can also help to compensate for blurriness caused by early-stage cataracts.

What's the Difference between Single-Vision and Multifocal Eyeglasses?

Single-vision eyeglasses requires correction at one distance. Multifocal eyeglasses which include bifocals, trifocals, and progressive lenses correct near, intermediate, and distance vision.

What Kinds of Frame Options Can You Provide?

You'll find an impressive variety of designer frames at Carolina Vision Care. We offer frames from the world's most popular designers for both adults and children. You can choose the frame shape, size, style, and color scheme to suit your individual taste and sense of fashion.

How Do I Select the Right Frame for My Face?

Different frame shapes exist to suit differing facial shapes – we will help you choose a frame that will enhance your features or offset features that you do not care to highlight. Our trained staff will advise you as you browse our selection of frames.

What Kinds of Lens Options Do You Offer?

Carolina Vision Care offers several lens options to suit your specific prescription, budget, and personal preferences. ‘Polycarbonate’ lenses are very safe, offering superior shatter-resistance while being lightweight. ‘Trivex’ and ‘high-index’ lenses offer supreme thinness and lightness.

How Do Lens Coatings Make Eyeglasses Even Better?

Lens coatings greatly enhance your enjoyment of your new eyeglasses. For example, anti-reflective coatings help you see as clearly as possible by dampening down the glare from headlights when driving as well as decreasing the glare that is given off by your computer screen, tablet, and cell phone. Scratch-resistant coatings help your glasses stay in optimal shape for as long as reasonably possible. You may even want to add tinting, UV protection, or polarization to your glasses.
