Choosing the Right Glasses - Tonic Eye Care

Choosing the Right Glasses

There is a lot to consider when shopping for the perfect pair of glasses. Fit, style, lens type, coatings–there is a world of customization options to tailor your glasses to your specific needs and preferences. Fortunately, our wide selection of frames and lenses allows you to customize your glasses to your heart’s desire, so your glasses are perfectly yours.

Lenses and Coatings

You may not realize just how many lens options are available. Understanding the different types of lenses can help you make an informed decision before visiting our shop. 

  • High-index lenses are a great choice for those with strong prescriptions as they are thinner and lighter, providing a sleek look and improved weight distribution.
  • Anti-fatigue lenses include a slight magnification towards the bottom of the lens to alleviate eye strain from extensive work up close, particularly with computers or reading.
  • Polycarbonate lenses are known for their impact resistance, making them ideal for children and active individuals who need durable lenses without sacrificing clarity. 

 

There are also several different coatings that can be added to your glasses to change how you experience the world. Some of the coatings that we offer at Tonic Eye Car include:

  • UV Protection
  • Blue Light Filtering 
  • Anti-Reflective (AR) Coating 
  • Scratch-Resistant Coating

 

Start with a comprehensive eye exam for guidance on choosing the right lenses.

Comfort Considerations
Comfort is crucial when selecting glasses. You wear them every day so they should feel good on your face. Lens coatings play a significant role in this, impacting the comfort of your eyes and helping to reduce strain.

Choosing the right frame material is the other part of the equation. Lightweight plastics and durable metals like titanium are ideal for comfortable, all-day wear. Glasses might not seem heavy when you hold them in your hand, but after a long day, you can notice the weight. If you have sensitive skin, hypoallergenic materials can reduce irritation.

Frames for All Face Shapes and Styles

Selecting frames that complement your facial shape can be an art. Picking the right style will help the glasses feel more comfortable and help you feel good about wearing them. 

For round faces, angular frames such as square or rectangular shapes add definition. Square faces benefit from round or oval frames that soften strong jawlines. Oval faces can wear most frame shapes, but frames wider than the broadest part of the face often look best. Heart-shaped faces look great with aviator or rimless styles.

Don’t worry if this feels overwhelming, our team is here to help guide you through the process of trying on frames. There is no need to feel rushed to pick a pair of frames, people usually have to try on several pairs before they find the right fit.

Sunglasses

Sunglasses are not just a fashion statement, they are invaluable for protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays. At Tonic Eye Care, we offer a variety of sunglass frames fit for everyone and lenses to suit different activities. 

You can add polarized lenses to reduce glare from reflective surfaces like water and roads, enhancing visual comfort and clarity, particularly for driving at night and outdoor activities. 

Different lens tints also offer specific benefits: 

  • Gray lenses reduce brightness without colour distortion
  • Brown or amber lenses enhance contrast and depth perception
  • Green lenses reduce glare while offering good contrast and colour accuracy
The Importance of Precise Measurements - Tonic Eye Care

The Importance of Precise Measurements

Without an accurate measurement of your eyes, your glasses won’t be as effective and will feel awkward. Measurements like your pupillary distance and the ocular center height of your glasses ensure your lenses are focusing light on your eyes correctly.

These measurements need to be taken in person by a trained professional to get a precise fit, particularly the ocular center height which changes depending on how each frame fits on your individual face. Ordering glasses online without these measurements is a surefire way to lead to buyer’s remorse. At Tonic Eye Care we take every step to ensure a personalized fit for any frame you choose.

Glasses for Everyone

At Tonic Eye Care, we have glasses for everyone. For individuals with conditions like presbyopia, we offer progressive lenses and custom fitting. For those who spend a lot of time looking at screens, have more sensitive eyes, or have computer vision syndrome, we offer specialized anti-fatigue lenses to help alleviate eye strain. 

No matter the shape of your face, the nature of your prescription, or any special considerations we have glasses and sunglasses for you. Stop by our clinic to browse our selection of frames and lenses in our glasses shop. We’ll help you see clearly and look great doing it.

Eye See… Eye Learn® Program - Tonic Eye Care & Vision Therapy

Eye See...Eye Learn®

Eye See…Eye Learn® is a not-for-profit program by the Ontario Association of Optometrists (OAO) designed to detect, diagnose, and treat children with vision problems when they begin in Junior Kindergarten, so that every child can see and learn to the best of his/her ability. Each Junior Kindergarten student is encouraged to visit a Doctor of Optometry for a comprehensive eye exam, which is covered by provincial health insurance (OHIP). If the child requires eyeglasses at the time of the examination, the Eye See…Eye Learn® program will provide one free pair of glasses courtesy of participating optometrists and corporate partners Plastic Plus and Modern Optical Canada. The frames are fashionable and are made with high quality and impact resistant polycarbonate lenses. The estimated value of the glasses is over $250.

The Eye See…Eye Learn® program is available until June 30, 2020 to children born in 2015 that are in any junior kindergarten program. Beginning July 1, 2020 through to June 30, 2021, children born in 2016 will be eligible for the program.

More information can be found on the OAO website here.
