WHY WE'RE BETTER
My glasses don’t feel right but was told my current prescription is correct and there is nothing else that can be done.
We stand by our products 100%. If you are not satisfied-we will fix it.
My glasses feel like a fish-bowl. They make me nauseated when I turn my head or walk in them.
These are some common complaints from people who are given low-quality Progressive lenses (PAL). There are over 100 different ‘types’ of PAL’s. Most chains like Costco and Lenscrafters only have one PAL so getting higher quality Progressive lenses is not an option. At Nuvision Centers, we don’t sell low-quality PAL’s like our competitors- because we want you to love your glasses.
My lenses are crackly.
This is a common problem with low-quality, anti-reflective coatings. We recommend putting an AR coating on every pair of glasses because of its positive benefits. Our centers only apply high-quality AR that doesn’t crack and peel off prematurely.
I have to tilt my head to see properly.
This is a common complaint we hear from people whose Progressive glasses have been measured wrong-usually from a non-certified optician or an hourly worker that doesn’t have any experience or understanding of Progressive lenses and how to measure and properly put them into glasses. Not only do we have trained opticians with over 20yrs of experience-but we also have a digital measurement system to make your glasses as precise as possible down to 1/10th of a millimeter.
My glasses don’t stay clean and are constantly getting smudgy, filmy, or dirty.
This is a common problem for people who are given ‘low quality’ Anti-Reflective coatings and lens treatments. In glasses-you get what you pay for. Once again, we want you to actually LIKE your glasses-so we only offer high quality lens treatments so that you don’t have to worry about always having a lens cloth on you since you have to clean your glasses 8 times a day…
My frame broke, and my lenses popped out.
It’s easy to understand that a frying pan from the dollar store will scratch, break, and everything will stick to it after using it about three times… Same thing with glasses. If you make glasses out of cheap plastic, cheap metal, and cheap connecting parts-they will break, bend, lose their shape, and fall apart much faster than a high quality pair of glasses… You get what you pay for.
Contact lenses offer a wide range of vision correction, from daily disposable lenses to colored contacts to astigmatism contacts and beyond. The eye care team at Nuvision Centers offers dedicated expert care and all the custom contact lens choices you need.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you prefer your appearance without eyeglasses, contacts might be a good choice for you. Contacts also give you wider peripheral vision than eyeglasses do, so if side vision is a problem for you while driving, playing sports, or doing something else, contacts could work well for you. Talk to your Nuvision Center provider about your needs and wishes to decide whether contacts are the best option for you.
There are many types of contacts today, and there’s something for nearly anyone. The options include:
- Spherical contacts: for nearsightedness and farsightedness, and some astigmatism cases
- Toric lenses: for astigmatism
- Bifocal and multifocal lenses: multi-zone lenses for patients who need two or more prescriptions
- Gas-permeable lenses: a rigid type of lens that can offer sharper vision
There are also specialized types of contacts for vision problems and conditions. If you suffer from keratoconus, a condition that causes a cone-shaped cornea, there are a few kinds of soft or gas-permeable lenses that can help.
Orthokeratology lenses work differently than the other kinds of contacts. You wear these lenses at night, and they reshape your cornea. After a couple of weeks of nightly wear, your vision is considerably improved, allowing you to go contacts-free during the day.
You’ll have a comprehensive eye exam and contact lens fitting. Your optometrist considers multiple factors, including your unique eye structure and your vision correction needs, when deciding the best kind of contacts for your situation.
Absolutely — in fact, taking care of contacts is easier today than it’s ever been. For most types of lenses, you just need to use one solution to clean, rinse, and store your contacts.
Of course, you also have the option of disposable daily contacts. You don’t need to clean them at all because you discard the lenses each night when you go to bed. With good care, you won’t experience any problems with contacts. However, if you experience any loss of vision, vision changes, or eye pain, remove your lenses and see the optometrist right away.
