Optical Services

Our opticians are highly qualified in the field of opticianry. This coupled with their up-to-date knowledge of the latest developments in lens & frame design allows us to offer you the best visual clarity, comfort, and style available in eyewear today.

This section will help you to understand the variety of lenses and frame materials available today. In addition, by telling us of any unusual visual requirements, whether work or leisure-related, we can help create lenses and frames tailored to your specific needs.

We work with most insurance plans.  Please ask one of our opticians for more details.


LENS MATERIALS


Hard Resin (Plastic)
Conventional hard resin lenses are half the weight of glass lenses and can be tinted to almost any color and density. Hard resin lenses are more easily scratched than glass but can have an optional scratch protection applied.


Lighter, Thinner Lenses
Modern high index plastic bends light differently than traditional hard resin plastic.  Therefore, lenses made from this material are often thinner and lighter in weight even in stronger prescriptions. High index lenses absorb all harmful UV light and can be tinted to any shade or color.


Aspheric Lenses
These new lenses provide special visual and cosmetic benefits for stronger corrections and increase edge to edge clarity. Aspheric lenses are often made of high index materials for the ultimate in thin edges.


Polycarbonate-Ultralite
Polycarbonate lenses are high index and are usually the lightest, most comfortable lenses. They absorb all harmful UV light and can be made with ultra thin edges because of their unique strength.


LENS DESIGNS


Single Vision Lenses
Single vision lenses have a single power throughout the entire lens. They can be used as all-purpose glasses for people under forty.  For patients over forty they can be designed as near vision only or distance vision only spectacles. Single vision lenses are available in all lens materials. 


Flat Top Bifocals (with line)
This is the most popular bifocal form and is available with the bifocal portion made in a variety of widths. Flat top bifocals are available in all lens materials.


Trifocals (with lines)
Trifocals come in a variety of designs.  Flat top trifocals are the most common. The added segment provides clear vision at arm’s length (~21”). This area is usually blurred for traditional bifocal wearers. Trifocals are available in all lens materials.


Progressive (no-line bifocals)
These lenses provide all the benefits of bifocals but add the feature of continuous clear vision at all distances, including mid-range distance (arm’s length).  Progressives have the cosmetic advantage of appearing to be single vision lenses so they never reveal that the user is wearing bifocals. They are available in all lens materials.  Because of their many benefits, they are becoming the lens of choice for bifocal and trifocal wearers.


Occupational Requirement
Many occupations impose demanding visual requirements on those who wear bifocals or trifocals.  If the visual requirements of your job fall into this category, let us know and we’ll explain what will work best for your individual needs.


Sport Glasses
Many special lens designs are available for the special needs of sports enthusiasts.  Polycarbonate is usually the material of choice for active sports.


Computer Glasses
There are a variety of options for those who use computers. These include special filters and anti-reflection coatings. See our opticians for details.


Polarized Sun Glasses
These are the exciting sunglasses that eliminate reflected glare. They are especially appropriate for driving, fishing, hunting and other types of outdoor activities.

LASIK

At our Baltimore LASIK offices, we provide the best technology for laser vision correction. The combination of our specialist's experience and training, with the most advanced laser technology helps to ensure excellent results for our many patients from the Baltimore and Maryland regions. LASIK surgery is an extremely successful vision correction procedure approved for the treatment of nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and in some cases, presbyopia correction.

In the United States alone, Laser surgery is performed on over a million patients every year, and it is currently the most popular refractive surgery available. If you are interested in laser vision correction, consider what surgery can do for you.

To find out more about laser vision correction, please contact us. During your complimentary surgery consultation, our vision specialist will determine whether you are a candidate for eye surgery, or whether you would be better suited for other procedures.

LASIK Surgery at our Baltimore LASIK Center - The Procedure

Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis, is a surgical treatment designed to improve vision by increasing the focusing power of the eye. It is an outpatient procedure that can be performed in less than an hour. At our vision correction center, surgery begins after the patient is made comfortable with numbing anesthetic eyedrops. During the procedure, our surgeon creates a flap in the outer eye, and gently folds over the flap to reveal the cornea. Using a precise excimer laser, she then quickly reshapes the cornea, and replaces the flap over the eye. The surgery itself is virtually painless, and results can be seen immediately. After vision correction with it, patients can leave our office immediately, and return to their normal activities within a day, sometimes less.

Who is a Candidate for LASIK Surgery?

The surgery is best suited for healthy patients who are at least 18 years of age. If you suffer from astigmatism, myopia (nearsightedness), or hyperopia (farsightedness), and your prescription is stable, you may be a candidate for laser vision correction with it. At our practice, the surgery is the procedure of choice for patients with lower prescriptions. The surgery is worthwhile for anyone who is unhappy wearing glasses or contact lenses. The surgery may now also be an option for presbyopia correction; the surgery can correct one eye for distance vision and the other eye for close vision in a procedure known as Monovision.

At our practice, every potential patient must undergo a thorough examination prior to surgery. Our specialist will base her recommendations for treatment on a number of factors, including your current prescription, medical background, lifestyle, and expectations from surgery.

LASIK Surgery - Results

After laser vision correction at our practice, patients can expect to see immediate improvement in the quality of their vision. Studies from the American Academy of Ophthalmology report that seven out of 10 patients achieve 20/20 vision or better following the surgery. It is important to be aware that the surgery is not a guarantee of perfect vision, and some patients may require additional surgery to further enhance their vision. However, the vast majority of our patients who have undergone the surgery are extremely happy with the results. In fact, our enhancement rate is currently less than 3%, far below the national average.

As with most surgeries, there are possible risks. During your consultation at our practice, our specialist will explain the LASIK surgery in detail, and go over all possible long/short term side effects and complications.
