Which Eyeglass Lenses Are Right For Me?

Are you a first-time eyeglasses wearer, or do you currently wear eyeglasses and are considering a change? Either way, there are a lot of lens options to consider before making a final decision on what's right for you.

A common mistake people make when buying eyeglasses is not spending enough time considering their choices of eyeglass lens materials, designs and treatments.

When buying eyeglasses, the frame you choose is important to both your appearance and your comfort. But the eyeglass lenses you choose influence four factors: appearance, comfort, vision and safety.

This interactive Lens Selector Tool will be useful in helping you decide which lenses are best for you. As you go through this, keep in mind the many things you do throughout the week... you may be surprised at what you learn! At the conclusion you'll receive recommendations based upon your responses. It's important to keep in mind that this tool doesn't replace a comprehensive eye exam and consultation with your eye doctor.
