Eyeglasses Q & A

What is the optical boutique at American Eye Institute?

The optical boutique at American Eye Institute offers an assortment of eyewear to accommodate every need. The optical boutique provides ultra-thin lenses that minimize thickness and weight, ultra-violet coating that protects from the harmful sun rays, or an anti-reflective coating that eliminates glare. They also offer progressive lenses including the popular new option called free-form lenses. Also known as high-definition lenses, these multifocal lenses allow you to have clear vision at all distances and provide a sharper image quality, better peripheral vision, and improve less glare at night.

What eyeglass frame styles are available?

Eyeglasses are unique to the person wearing them and they can reflect your personal fashion taste. Appearance and lifestyle should come into play when choosing your eyeglasses. The licensed opticians at American Eye Institute have experience helping patients select eyeglass frames to fit each need. American Eye Institute carries a wide variety of high-fashion frames including Barton Perreira, Etnia, Tom Ford, Silhouette, SLR, Geek, Givenchy, Tony Morgan, Tag Heuer, Okio, Roberto Cavalli, 2.5 Italee, and pre-made readers called Gels. There is also an assortment of affordable frames for the budget minded. Multi-colored inlays, composite materials, designer emblems, and enhancements such as insets of precious stones are commonly found in popular frame styles.
