See More Clearly This Holiday Season With New Lenses

Have you had the same lenses for years now? Are you noticing your vision is blurry despite wearing your glasses or contacts? Your prescription may have changed over the years, and it may be time to schedule an appointment with Dr. Rutkowski so you can see clearly in time for the holidays.

At Nicholas Rutkowski, OD and Associates, we have everything you need to improve your vision. Whether you’re coming in to check up on your eye health or you’re wanting new glasses, we’re here to help you see the world with perfect clarity. But where do you start?

Eye exams

Staying on track with your eye exams is important for maintaining your eye health as well as keeping your prescription lenses up-to-date. If you’re generally in good health, it’s best to follow this schedule for eye exams:

It’s quite common for your eye prescription to change frequently as you age. When you’re born, your eyes are only 80 percent of the size they’ll be when you’re an adult. Your eyes are growing throughout childhood and adolescence, until they stop in your early 20s. During those developmental years, your prescription is bound to change a couple of times. Once your eyes are fully developed, your prescription will likely stay the same through your 30s, and then you’re ready to have another eye exam and a new pair of lenses.

Getting new lenses

Hooray! You’ve just gotten an eye exam and you’re ready for new glasses and/or contacts. At Nicholas Rutkowski, OD and Associates, we have a variety of lenses and frames to suit you. When it comes to glasses, we have multiple kinds of lenses to best match your new prescription:

Dr. Rutkowski recommends the best type of lens for you, and gets you fitted for your new pair of glasses. Our offices have a wide selection of frames that you can choose from to match your unique style.

There are also different types of contact lenses to meet your visual needs. There are standard lenses with one prescription, and lenses with two or more prescriptions. If you require lenses with multiple prescriptions, there are:

Depending on your comfortability, you can choose between daily disposable contacts, extended wear contacts, and other options. Discuss your preferences with Dr. Rutkowski in order to get the most out of your lenses.

Don’t let old lenses get in the way of you seeing your loved ones clearly this holiday season. Schedule an appointment via phone or online at either of our convenient offices, located in Frankfort and Bourbonnais, Illinois.
