Innovation and Compassion.
Our experienced opticians have a passion for helping patients find the eye wear that is meant for you. They will assist you in choosing the correct lens design, materials, and options that are right for lifestyle and visual needs. Their expertise is valuable in helping you select a frame that accentuates your facial features, fits your style, and meets your visual needs. They will then take precise measurements of your eyes and how the frame fits on your face to ensure you get the best vision possible with your new glasses. All of our opticians are licensed through the Ohio Vision Professionals board and maintain certification through annual training and education. We are the only optical dispensary in the area to offer this level of expertise.
Our lenses go through extensive testing to ensure they are meet the appropriate standards for safety. Once they arrive at our office our opticians carefully measure the glasses to ensure you are getting the quality product that you deserve.

There are many lens designs available to address how you use your eyes, in work, at home or in play. Talk to the staff and doctors at Spectrum Eye Care about your specific activities and what challenges you are experiencing. We are here to help.
Single Vision lenses as designed to optimize vision for one distance, which is typically to see things far away but can also be designed for near vision only.
Bifocal lenses have two different powers in the lens, typically one power is in the top of the glasses and is used to see distance and the second power is at the bottom of the lens and is used to see things up close. The two powers are separated by a line.
Trifocal lenses have three different powers in the lens and are also separated by lines. The top is used for seeing distance, middle for intermediate range or things that are arms length away such as the computer, and the bottom is used to see things up close.
Progressive Lenses are also known as “no-line bifocals.“ These lens typically have a patients distance prescription at the top and the further down the lens you look the more power there is and can be used to see up close. The lenses do not have lines separating the distances which allows for a smooth transition from distance to near and everything in between. A lot of research and technology has gone into optimizing lens designs to enhance vision and clarity in progressive lenses. There are many different progressive lens designs available that are tailored to various hobbies or occupations based on visual demands. Talk to an optician today about which progressive lens design is right for you and your visual needs.
Computer lenses are a specialized type of progressive lens and are designed specifically for those individuals that spend a significant amount of time in an office or working on a computer. They are designed to reduce visual fatigue experienced after hours of computer and office work. They can also decrease the amount of head and neck movements in traditional progressive lenses trying to find the right spot in the lens to see the computer and minimize glare.
Occupational and Hobby Lenses include specific glasses that can be designed for certain occupations or hobbies such as reading sheet music, sewing, mechanic work, and even handling firearms. Talk with your doctor and optician to find out about the options to improve your vision and keep you enjoying the hobbies that you love.
While nearly all lenses are made from plastic, there are different optical properties with each material. We offer many lens materials to suit your individual needs including: polycarbonate, trivex, CR-39 and High-index lenses. Talk to our opticians today to find out which lens material is best for you.
Also known as anti-glare is used to reduce the amount of glare that is reflected off computer and phone screens, windshields, water, headlights when driving, especially at night, and off many more surfaces. By reducing this reflected light it can improve visual comfort and increase transparency allowing more light to get to your eyes allowing you to see more clearly. If you are experiencing difficulty with glare while driving at night, anti-reflective coating is a must in order to reduce glare as much as possible. The anti-reflective treatment will also reduce external reflections off your lenses which allow others to see your eyes instead of glare off your lenses. This will also look better for pictures giving an overall improved cosmesis. Most current anti-reflective also helps to repel water, oils, fingerprints and smudges making your lenses easier to keep clean.
Also known as photochromatic lenses are lenses that change their tint in response to UV light. This allows patients to “transition” from indoor to outdoor environments without having to switch their glasses.
People of all ages are spending more time on digital devices than ever before. It is important to protect your eyes from the harmful blue light emitted from digital devices. Many people experience less eye strain and fatigue with blue filtering lenses. While research on the effects of blue light is on-going, increased blue light exposure has linked with a slight increased risk for age-related macular degeneration and to increased difficulty sleeping as it can affect the circadian rhythm or sleep-wake cycle.
It is important for your eyes to have the proper safety protection whether it is at work or for play. Many common activities can result in eye injuries without the use of proper eye protection such as construction projects around the house, yardwork, racquetball, paintball etc. It is estimated that 90% of sports-related eye injuries are preventable with proper eye protection.
Polarized Lenses reduce glare and protect eyes from harmful UV rays. According to The Vision Council 75% of Americans are concerned about UV eye exposure yet only 31% wear sunglasses every time they go outside. The sun is reflected off of many common surfaces that we encounter daily including water, asphalt, concrete, snow, and even grass reflects some UV light. Help protect your eyes.
