Glasses Q&A

What types of glasses are available?

Bolduc Eye Care offers the latest lens materials, including ultrastrong polycarbonate lenses and ultrathin high-index plastic lenses. You can also choose between high-quality acetate and metal frames.

Regardless of your chosen glasses lens material, you can also add a protective coating to the lens to block glare, repel scratches, block ultraviolet (UV) rays, or filter out blue light from digital devices. 

If you need prescription sunglasses, but you don't want to swap glasses and sunglasses consistently, you might benefit from transition lenses.

This type of lenses darken when you're outside. The lenses fade back to their usual transparent color when you're indoors again.

What brands of glasses do you have?

Bolduc Eye Care offers a wide selection of quality frames from some of the leading designers, including:

  • Oakley® Sunglasses and Ophthalmic frames
  • Coach®

Can I use drugstore glasses instead of prescription glasses?

Many men and women with vision problems wonder whether the glasses available at the local drugstore could work instead of buying prescription glasses. In most cases, the answer is no. Drugstore glasses are meant only for near vision focus like reading. Plus, drugstore glasses are only useful for minor vision issues.

Drugstore glasses aren't custom-crafted for your unique prescription and eye dimensions. For this reason, they aren't useful for astigmatism or asymmetrical prescriptions. Non-prescription eyeglasses can also lead to eye strain and headaches.

At best, drugstore glasses might do in a pinch if you need reading glasses and have no other eye issues. But, in nearly all cases, you'll be better off with having a comprehensive eye exam at Bolduc Eye Care so you can get the highly customized glasses you need.
