VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron PINPOINT PRECISION In order for prescription eyeglasses to correct the wearer's "refractive error" (i.e., nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism) properly, the eyeglass frames must fit so that the "optical centers" of the lenses line up directly in front of the wearer's pupils. With this in mind, the optician will analyze a prescription in order to determine which frames may be best suited. Due to lens thickness and weight, some prescriptions can influence frame selection. Moreover, the bridge of the frames must sit properly on the nose and the temple arms must wrap around the ears so that the glasses will not slip. Not only does slippage affect the way that the glasses look, but also how the wearer sees through the lenses. When your glasses feel uncomfortable, you may not wear them as often as you should. And if you're not wearing your glasses as prescribed, you're putting your vision - and possibly your safety - at risk. To schedule an appointment, please call SKOWRON EYE CARE. We are so confident in our ability to address your needs that we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on our contacts and glasses. At Skowron Eye Care, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S. The "pupillary distance," which is a measurement between the pupils of each eye, enables the optician to align centers of the lenses with the centers of the eyeglass wearer's pupils.
