A lot more goes into selecting the perfect prescription glasses than simply turning in your prescription and choosing a frame. The type of lense you choose for your prescription eyewear is important, and more and more people are discovering the benefits of anti-reflective coating to get the most out of their eyewear.
Anti-reflective coatings (also known as anti-glare or AR coatings) are designed to minimize the amount of light reflected in your lenses. The coatings are applied either to the front, back, or both sides of your lenses so that the maximum amount of positive light reaches your eyes, giving you the clearest possible view.

Recently we recevied some nice comments from one of our awesome customers! Check it out!
I want to thank you again for such a great experience choosing my glasses! When I walked through the door, my husband commented that be there for hours, as always. To begin, a great part of my experience was the hospitality and friendliness we experienced! The glass of beer my hubby enjoyed while waiting in a comfortable chair for what he thought would be hours helped to get him to sit patiently without complaining I really can blame him since it has always been difficult for me to choose a frame to fit my face and personality. Everywhere else I've gone looking for glasses, all he would say was, "Those are nice", As his patience waned...When the glasses would come in, I would always look in the mirror and question my choice.
Here is Debbie, the winner of a pair of eyeglasses from State Optical Co and lenses from Zeiss. Debbie is wearing State Optical Co LaSalle in caramel silver. Beside Debbie is Ron Catterson, owner of Clear View Optix, and Debbie Young of State Optical Co. Congratulations!

History tends to repeat itself, and this is most true in fashion specifically. A comeback we never saw coming has exploded among young and old eyeglass wearers across the globe; tortoiseshell eye glasses! The turtle-esque design adds that perfect pop of “wow!” to an otherwise boring facial accessory. The style is made to mimic the speckled design of some turtle shells, with colors of calming amber, honey, and mottled yellow.
