Eye Exam at Windsor Eye Care & Vision Center in Colorado

Optical Services in Windsor

If you’ve noticed new or worsening vision problems, or just want to try out a new style of eyeglasses, you first need to visit an optical center. Optical centers have optometrists onsite who perform full vision exams and eye health exams, provide prescriptions, and help you maintain the overall health of your eyes and vision. Getting an annual vision and eye health exam allows your eye doctor to look for early warning signs of eye problems that can get worse without proper intervention. Annual eye exams also ensure your prescription is up to date and your vision is as clear as possible. Common signs of an incorrect prescription include squinting, eye strain, blurred vision, trouble focusing, headaches, difficulty reading or driving, and worsened night vision. If you need new glasses or contact lenses in Windsor, come see us at Windsor Eye Care & Vision Center. Just call us to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced optometrists.

We carry a wide range of attractive, affordable prescription glasses to meet each patient’s needs and budget. We offer budget frames and designer frames, and have a huge selection available in our optical center for you to try on in person. Whether you need single-vision, bifocals, reading glasses, prescription sunglasses, or blue light blockers, we have you covered. We can provide a full-service vision exam and eye health exam, and then provide you a new prescription for eyeglasses that you can fill in our optical store. Just ask to check out our array of:

  • Traditional glasses
  • Designer frames
  • Specialty lenses
  • Transition lenses
  • Sunglasses
  • Snap-on sunglasses
  • Sports eye protection

Choosing the right type of prescription lenses is key to ensuring you have glasses that meet your needs and will improve your vision throughout the day and night, no matter your environment or activity. Our eye doctors and eye care specialists can help you pick out the exact prescription lenses you need based on your answers to some simple questions. We specialize in:

  • Single-Vision Lenses – These are the most common type of prescription lenses. Single-vision lenses can improve and sharpen your vision at one distance, either near, intermediate, or far, depending on whether you are near-sighted or far-sighted. If you need prescription glasses for reading, typing, or driving, single-vision lenses are perfect for you.
  • Bifocal Lenses – Bifocal lenses help you see clearly both up close, and at a distance. They do not offer any transition or intermediate length, however. Bifocal lenses are best for people who can see fine at an intermediate distance, but need help seeing up close and far away.
  • Progressive Lenses – Progressive lenses are perfect for anyone who needs help with near, far, and intermediate sight. They allow you to see clearly at any distance, without needing to take your eyeglasses off or swap them for a different pair when you change activities.
  • Active Lenses – Active lenses are meant for people who live an active lifestyle, either by playing sports, participating in high-risk activities, or who work in dangerous environments. The lens is thinner and lighter than other types of prescription lenses, and is more durable and less likely to crack if dropped, hit, or stepped on.
  • High Index Lenses – High index lenses are perfect for people with very strong prescriptions. High index lenses allow you to have the thinnest lenses possible for your prescription, so you don’t end up with thick “coke bottle” glasses.

Frames for Every Face

Certain sizes, shapes, and styles of frames are extremely flattering for certain face shapes. The strength of your prescription may also dictate the shape and size of frames you choose, as stronger prescriptions don’t work as well in smaller, thinner eyeglass frames. Here’s a quick guide to choosing the right frames for your face:

  • Round Face Shape – To flatter a round face shape, you should choose eyeglass frames with thick, straight lines and sharp corners. The best eyeglasses for round faces are wide, dark in color, and rectangular, square, cat-eye, geometric, browline, or full-rimmed glasses.
  • Oval Face Shape – For an oval face shape, the best frames for you are narrow ones. You can choose from a wide variety of frame styles, shapes, and designs, because almost every eyeglass frame is flattering to an oval face shape.
  • Heart Face Shape – To complement a heart face shape, choose eyeglass frames that are round. You can opt for oval frames, semi-rimless frames, round frames, or aviator frames.
  • Square Face Shape – You can balance out a square face shape with rounded lenses. Thin or semi-rimless or wire frames that are round or oval are most flattering.
  • Triangle Face Shape – To flatter a triangle face shape, choose eyeglass frames that are rectangular, browline, or cat-eye.
  • Diamond Face Shape – The best eyeglass frames for a diamond face shape are ones that are horn-rim or browline glasses. You can also check out cat-eye, round, and oval glasses.

Contact Lenses

Whether you don’t want to wear glasses all the time, or just prefer contact lenses to glasses, we’ve got you covered. You need a special prescription for contact lenses, so when you make an appointment for an eye exam at our optical center in Windsor, be sure to mention that you need an eyeglass prescription, contact lens prescription, or both. Once you have your prescription, we can either give you a pair of trial lenses that same day, or order you a pair to try out. You will also need to come in for a contact lens fitting once your permanent lenses arrive. The contact lens fitting will ensure your lenses are comfortable, safe, and provide the most effective vision correction possible. We carry a wide range of different brands and styles of contact lenses, including daily, weekly, and monthly disposable lenses, and rigid or gas permeable lenses. People with astigmatism, farsightedness, nearsightedness, presbyopia, and keratoconus can safely wear contact lenses for vision correction. Many patients choose to wear contact lenses during the day, and glasses at night or when reading, driving, or working at the computer.
