Contacts & Glasses Q & A

What types of glasses are available?

Nicholas Rutkowski, O.D. and Associates offers a variety of glasses lenses and frames to meet your needs. Some of the many lens options include:

Standard lenses 

Standard lenses have one prescription all across the lens.

Bifocal lenses

Bifocal lenses have two different lens powers divided by lines, one on top and one at the bottom.

Trifocal lenses

Trifocal lenses have three different lens powers, divided by lines. 

Multifocal lenses

You can also choose multifocal lenses, which give you two or more lens powers, without lines in the lenses. 

Nicholas Rutkowski, O.D. and Associates offers all the latest frames, including stylish options that look beautiful on anyone. 

What types of contacts are available?

You can choose from standard contact lenses, with one prescription across the lens, and lenses that contain two or more prescriptions. For multiple prescriptions, you can choose: 

Alternating lenses 

Alternating contacts segment the lens (much like bifocal eyeglasses) to give you two different prescriptions, one on top and one on the bottom.

Aspheric lenses 

Aspheric contacts have a close-up prescription in the middle and a gradual transition to far-distance prescription toward the edge of the lens.

Concentric lenses

Concentric lenses have rings throughout the lens. Usually, your eye can look through at least two of the rings under normal lighting, giving you an option for close-up and distance vision without harsh transitions. 

These contact lenses are available in daily wear disposables, extended wear, and other options so you can find the most convenient and comfortable option for your lifestyle. 

How often do I need a contacts and glasses exam?

Most patients need a yearly eye exam, during which the Nicholas Rutkowski, O.D. and Associates team checks your refraction and eye health to see if you need a new prescription. 

Often, you don’t need a new prescription strength every year, but you may need to replace your lenses after a year of wear. 

To keep seeing clearly, it’s important to stay up to date with your glasses and contacts prescription. Call the office of Nicholas Rutkowski, O.D. and Associates nearest you for affordable Illinois glasses and contacts now.
