Picking the Right Eyeglass Frame

Don't like wearing glasses? Maybe you just haven't found the right frames. In addition to helping you see the world more clearly, eyeglasses should enhance (not detract from) your appearance, and should be comfortable, stylish and stay properly positioned on your face.

What is 20/20 Vision?

Most of us are familiar with the term "20/20 vision" and know it means our eyesight is pretty good. But what exactly does 20/20 mean? Is it possible to have vision that's better than 20/20? Is it safe to drive if you don't have 20/20 vision? And what does it mean if your vision is 20/40? Or 20/200?

Kids need sunglasses too.

The beach, the backyard pool...even the ski slopes are very inviting but eye damage can be just around the corner for your child. The most immediate danger is a painful type of corneal sunburn made worse by ultraviolet (UV) light reflected off water, sand or snow. Reflection can double the exposure to harmful UV rays. Learn how to select the best sunglasses for your child.
