Types of Glasses


Developments in technology have made an endless range of eyeglasses available to wearers. Some of the many types of prescription glass lenses include:


  • Single vision: These glass lenses have a massive field of vision because they correct only a single vision- either near or far. Generally, they address astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness.


  • Bifocals: These lenses have two powers, and the separate sections can address near and distant vision. These are generally for people who have several vision-related issues.

  • Trifocals: Trifocal eyeglass lenses are akin to bifocals, apart from having a third section to address intermediate vision. These glasses come in handy for people with problems such as presbyopia.

  • Progressives: These multifocal lenses provide a similar separation between near, distant, and immediate vision. However, they do this without distinct lines between the sections.


Glasses can also differ based on the lens material, like plastic and glass. Users can also get eyeglass lenses to meet their unique requirements. Some of these include:


  • Scratch-resistant coating

  • Photochromatic lenses

  • Anti-fog coating

  • Anti-reflective coating

  • UV-blocking treatment

Please speak to our team to discuss your vision condition and requirements. We can help you find eyeglasses in Bowmanville that suit your lifestyle.

Types of Frames


You can choose different styles of frames like full frames, semi-rimless frames, and rimless frames. Additionally, you can choose between different materials like metal and plastic. Eyeglass frames also come in many shapes, such as:


  • Rectangle: These eyeglasses are typically angular, with the lenses appearing wider. They can complement the appearance of those with oval, heart-shaped, and round faces.

  • Round: Round glasses make the lenses appear circular. They can enhance the look of those with diamond, square, round, and heart-shaped faces.

  • Oval: Oval glasses are rounder than rectangular ones, but still appear wide. They can work for those with diamond, square, and heart-shaped faces.

  • Square: These glasses offer a more traditional look than their counterparts. They're a great choice for those with oval and round faces.

  • Cat-eye: Cat-eye glasses are a more feminine style. The beauty of this style is that it works with all face shapes.

  • Aviator: While this style is more popular with sunglasses, many choose it for their eyeglasses as well. Like cat-eye glasses, this style complements most face shapes.

  • Oversized: These glasses are larger than regular glasses, and can offer sturdiness. They can fit most face shapes and are a popular choice for women.

  • Browline: Browline glasses refer to the style of replicating the eyebrows. They include bold upper rims with a metal bridge. They can be an excellent choice for those with pear, diamond, square, and oval faces.

Care Tips for Your Eyeglasses 

We offer eye care solutions for people of all ages to help them see the world clearly. We hear our patients complaining that their eyeglasses get scratched and damaged. Here are some tips that can help you avoid damaging your lens and keep them scratch and smudge-free: 

  • If you use cleaning products, make sure you use something specifically made for eyeglasses as other chemicals can cause damage to protective layers that might be present on the lens. 
  • Don’t use things like paper towels, tissues or napkins to wipe the lenses as they can be abrasive as well. 



We can also provide you with stylish and functional sunglasses for your needs. There are several reasons to wear sunglasses, such as:


  • UV Protection

  • Comfort

  • Healing

  • Avoiding headaches

  • Looking Stylish
