Florida Optical Services

Florida Board Certified Opticians

Our Opticians can help you with all your prescription eye wear. The most important aspect of a visit to an optical shop is the interaction you have with the optician. The optician will help you with the following:

  • Select the appropriate size of frame, material and color
  • Analyze the intended use. Everyday or task specific.
  • Prescription analysis. Does the prescription makes sense? 
  • Compare old to new prescription.
  • Decide on type of lens. 
  • Conventional manufacturing or Digitally enhanced?
  • Decide material properties. Thick or Thin? 
  • Heavy or light? Is it worth it?
  • What material induces unwanted aberrations and how to correct it? 
  • Anti-reflective Needed?
  • What type of anti-reflective? Quality? Price?
  • Blue Blocking needed? Does it really work or no benefit?
  • Measurements correct? The Base Curve matches my old one?
  • Monocular Apex measurements taken electronically
  • Segment height Multifocals? Trifocals?
  • Verification of complete eyeglasses to make sure they are what the Dr. ordered.
  • If you cannot see well, we will investigate why and correct it. 
  • Adjustments and repairs. Free for established patients. 
  • Warranty use assistance.

The Opticians role is complicated because eyeglasses are not only fashion but also science. New products come every year and sometimes every month that could enhanced your vision and probably your lifestyle. Do not let substandard optical options lure you in to substandard care.  Always see a Licensed Optician when purchasing eyeglasses. 

Digital Lenses

Digital lenses are the latest invention in the optical field thanks to computer assisted lens designs programs. These lens designs provide reduction of common aberration (distortions).

The better designs improve the way you see thru the lens.  Old lens technology was never able to compensate material induced aberrations.

Florida Optical Services uses Digital lenses in almost all their prescription eyeglasses. Digital lenses provide wider clear viewing areas.

Digital Single Vision Lenses

Digital Single Vision Lenses

The Digital Single Vision Lenses provide wider vision. This is significant if you have a high prescription. The Aspheric design improves clarity almost to the edge of the lens allowing the wearer to have almost no distortion when looking sideways.

Progressive Lenses

When transitioning from distance to near conventional lenses are narrower, limiting your field of clear vision as well as peripheral Distortion. Digital progressive lenses provide wider vision without peripheral induced distortions. The better the design the better the vision. Some inexpensive digital do not provide quality vision but our opticians do know which ones are the best!

Computer Lenses

Computer lenses are occupational progressive lenses that properly positioned reduce fatigue and eye strain including neck pain associated with computer use.

The straight computer design provides a larger intermediate and near area without any distance vision.

The Office Design is one in which you can view normal office distances up to 10 feet along with a large intermediate and near zone that is wider than regular progressives, allowing a more comfortable head position.
