Who needs eyeglasses?
Eyeglasses correct vision problems, including:
- Nearsightedness or myopia
- Farsightedness or hyperopia
Eyeglasses are very common in the United States, with around 64% of the population wearing corrective lenses of some sort.
How do glasses correct my vision?
Glasses have curved glass or polycarbonate lenses that bend light as it passes through them. Specifically designed for your vision, these lenses correct your refractive error and allow you to see more clearly.
Glasses can correct your vision for both nearsightedness and farsightedness. They can also improve the blurriness caused by astigmatism.
For example, concave lenses correct nearsightedness. Such lenses help myopic eyes bring the image into focus on your retina, thus producing a clear image. Other sorts of lenses alter light in a way to correct your specific vision problem.
What types of eyeglasses are available?
Depending on your specific needs, you may need a certain type of glasses. At Focused Eye Care, Dr. Sollom and Dr. Schorn offer a wide variety of glasses and lenses, including:
- High definition lenses
- Non-glare lenses
- Progressive lenses
- Light lenses
- Protective lenses
If you have multiple vision issues, some lenses can correct multiple problems at once. Bifocal lenses have two lenses on each side, one to correct nearsightedness and one to correct farsightedness. That allows you to see things clearly at a distance, but also see things at close range.

How should I take care of glasses?
Once you receive your glasses from Focused Eye Care, you need to take care of them, as up to 80% of scratches on your eyeglasses come from improper care.
When your glasses need cleaning, start by rinsing the lenses in warm water to rinse off any dirt or debris. To clean the lenses, use a mild soap with no additives or an approved lens cleaning solution. It’s important that you not use household glass cleaner to clean your glasses, as this cleaner contains chemicals that may harm your lenses.
Once your lenses are clean, dry them with a soft, lint-free or microfiber cloth. Do not use facial tissues or paper towels.
When you’re not wearing your glasses, keep them safe in their case. It’s best to keep them out of direct sunlight and avoid leaving your glasses in a hot car.
