Frames & Sunglasses
We are proud to feature a diverse selection of high–quality eyeglass frames and the latest in lenses to ensure your vision is sharp and you look your best! Shopping for eyeglasses can feel overwhelming, but the qualified team at Dr. Ellen Merkin will help you find the eyeglasses to suit your style, face shape, visual needs, and budget.
In addition to eyeglasses, we also offer an array of prescription sunglasses as well. Sunglasses offer UV ray protection and make it easy to enjoy outdoor activities and driving while still having clear vision and are a must–have with all the sunshine we get in Las Vegas!
The eyeglass lenses and lens treatments you choose should help you see clearly in all facets of your life.
Whether you’re driving, using a computer, reading a book, looking at your phone, or playing sports, your lenses should help you see clearly and comfortably. Our optical staff will ask you about what you do for work, whether you have a commute, and what kind of hobbies you enjoy so they can recommend lens options which will best meet the visual needs of your lifestyle.
When it comes to eyeglass lenses, many treatment options are available to help enhance your vision experience. Glare reduction lenses increase the quality of clear vision by reducing nighttime glare from headlights, taillights, and streetlights. They also reduce eye strain and the fatigue that can come from reflections on your glasses. Scratch–resistant lenses are treated with hard scratch–resistant protection to eliminate the risk of pesky scratches appearing on your eyeglass lenses and disrupting your vision.
At our Las Vegas eye care center, we offer a variety of lens types to suit every need, including:
- Single vision lenses: These lenses have one dioptric power used throughout the entire lens. They are used to correct vision for both near and far distances.
- Bifocal lenses: These lenses contain two prescriptions that have a dividing line between them. The top of the lens corrects for farsightedness and the bottom corrects for nearsightedness.
- Trifocal lenses: These lenses include three prescriptions separated by lines and correct faraway, intermediate, and near vision.
- Progressive lenses: These lenses also offer multiple prescriptions in one lens, but they are line-free, offering a smooth transition when shifting your view between the prescriptions.
There are many different options to consider when shopping for eyeglass frames. Prior to making your selections, it is helpful to understand some key terminology. Eyeglass frame materials include acetate, metal, plastic, titanium, and wood texture. Various options are available for eyeglass frame types, including full rimmed, semi–rimless, rimless, low bridge, and wire.
Our opticians can help you select the right choice for your needs, budget, and style and advise you on the different advantages offered by each frame type. We’re happy to offer guidance and expertise as you determine your selections and shop for eyeglasses that best suit your lifestyle needs, face shape, budget, and other criteria.
Shopping for the right eyeglasses and sunglasses can be overwhelming, but we can help you select the right eyewear for your visual needs, lifestyle, budget, and taste.
