Eyeglasses Q & A

Why do I need eyeglasses?

Eyeglasses are a simple way to improve the clarity of your vision and protect the health of your eyes. The staff at Swift Creek Eye Center offers comprehensive eyeglasses services to meet your vision needs while ensuring you look great.

You may be a candidate for eyeglasses as you get older and your vision begins to decline or at any age if you have vision issues like:


Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a condition where it becomes difficult to see objects at a distance.


Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is a condition where seeing objects up-close becomes difficult.


Presbyopia is an age-related condition that causes the loss of focusing ability on objects up-close.

Wearing glasses may only be necessary during certain activities like reading or using a computer. For some, the use of eyeglasses may be necessary all the time to improve your close-up or long-distance vision.

What eyeglasses services are available?

To ensure you have everything you need to see clearly, the Swift Creek Eye Center staff offers comprehensive eyeglasses services, including a variety of the most popular, most fashionable designer frames.

Your Swift Creek Eye Center provider develops a prescription for your eyeglasses lenses based on a vision assessment. They can recommend specialty types of lenses, such as:

  • No-glare
  • Progressive
  • High-definition

The team can also recommend high-quality lenses to protect your eyes from blue light or digital eye strain.

Regardless of your prescription strength, your lenses can be designed to be thinner and lighter to increase your comfort and allow you to select from any fashionable frame. Lenses also offer scratch protection to ensure your long-term satisfaction.

Can I get prescription sunglasses?

Sunglasses are vital for protecting your eyes from damage caused by the ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun all year round. For your convenience, the Swift Creek Eye Center team can design prescription lenses for your sunglasses when you’re not able to or don’t want to wear contact lenses.

In addition to prescription sunglasses, the Swift Creek Eye Center staff offers prescription protective eyewear you can wear during certain activities, like sports, construction, or for on-the-job use, to protect your eye health.
