Prescription Glasses

Ensuring your vision is the best it can be is our goal. With your new or updated prescription, we'll make recommendations about the best type of prescription eyeglasses for your needs. We also offer prescription sunglasses. It may be a good idea to pick up both sunglasses and eyeglasses in your new prescription.

Lenses for Every Need

We offer a wide range of lens options. At McDonald Optical, we offer the latest and best technology available for our customers. The lenses you choose are not just plastic, they can have built-in protections that can help with UV blocking and blue light filtering. They also have features that can help to reduce glare so you can see in the snow, rain, and every other condition you are in. We also have lens options for every need, including computer lenses, progressive lenses, bifocals, single vision, and tinted lenses.

Frames for Every Face Type

One of the key services we offer is a large selection of frames. Our two locations allow us to offer different frame styles and selection at each store. You'll find brands such as Modo, Coach, RayBan, Robert Marc, Tom Ford, Oliver Peoples and many others. Options are available for men, women, and children in just about every style and design out there. We highly recommend customized eyeglass frames. Our team will work with you to consider your face shape and the right type of eyeglasses for it. Some considerations to think about:

Oval face: it's often best to choose glasses that are more dominant in color and style. Bold works well, but you'll want to keep the lens shape a bit smaller.

Round face: it's best to choose strong details and glasses that are wider than they are tall. Also look for notepads to help keep the glasses up off of your cheeks.

Square face: square face tends to have a lot of dramatic features already. In this case, choose something a bit less dominate and something that blends in well.

Heart face: benefit from eyeglasses designed to be wider rather than taller. You'll also be able to choose more dramatic looks.

We offer a large selection of eyeglasses for every face shape. It only takes a few minutes to come in to discuss your options with us. Try on a variety of glasses, find out which will work best for your needs, and fall in love with the options available to you. Our team is ready to help you.
