Frequently Asked Questions about Our College Station Eyeglasses

Whether you're getting your very first pair of eyeglasses or you're simply due for an update, there may be aspects of selecting these accessories that you need to understand in more detail. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions about them at our College Station clinic, Urban Optics.

Why Might I Consider Getting Eyeglasses Instead of Just Getting Contacts?

We actually recommend that all our contact lens wearers have an updated pair of back-up glasses for multiple reasons: for the health of your eyes it can be beneficial to give them an occasional break from contacts, eyeglasses can also stand out as a fashionable addition to your wardrobe, and it’s always a good idea to have glasses you can wear in case you suffer from any unforeseen eye conditions like an infection or corneal abrasion.

What Kind of Selection Do You Maintain?

We pride ourselves on carrying a wide variety of some of the top name brands in the industry! Costa Del Mar, Oakley, Toms, Vera Bradley, Gucci, Tiffany’s and more! Please view all of our brands HERE

How Do I Choose the Right Frame Shape and Color for My Face?

Our experts can help you select the most flattering frames for your face. Look for colors that complement your complexion and everyday fashion sense, as well as shapes that contrast your facial shape (such as rectangular frames for a round face or vice versa).

How Does the Frame Shape and Size Relate to My Prescription?

Depending upon the strength of your prescription, certain frames can help mask the thickness and appearance of the lenses. Also if you are a multifocal wearer, the frame will need to be a certain size to accommodate all the powers of your lenses. This will insure that have the best vision possible at all distances.

Which Lens Material Will Suit My Needs?

While many modern plastics can provide acceptable visual correction, some will be better suited to your needs than others. We have certified opticians that are specifically trained in evaluating your prescription in order to help educate you on the latest technology of digital lenses and find what best suits your lifestyle.

What Kinds of Coatings Should I Consider?

Since we live in a predominantly digital world, we offer the latest coatings with blue-light blocking technology that help protect your eyes from the damaging effects of extended digital device use. We also offer anti-glare, scratch resistant coatings, and UV protection coatings! Stop by and ask our optical technicians for more information!​​​​​​​
