Whether you are looking for a classic or trendy look, or you need frames that will withstand sports or outdoor weather conditions, you are sure to find the perfect pair in our selection.

Progressive Lenses

Does fine print keep getting fuzzier? It could be presbyopia, a common condition previously treated with traditional bifocal and trifocal lenses. Bifocals and trifocals often cause images to “jump” while vision adjusts from far to near. Using advanced technology to ensure sharp sight from any distance, progressive lenses, or “no-line” bifocals, prevent this from happening.


The sun radiates ultraviolet rays (UV) that can be harmful to your eyes. Over time, this UV radiation can cause various eye conditions including macular degeneration and cataracts. To protect your eyes from the dangers of the sun, it is important to invest in eyewear with proper UV protection.

UV radiation comes to the earth in two forms, UVA and UVB, both can be damaging to eyes. When shopping for sunglasses, it is important to look for eyewear that offers 100% protection from both UVA and UVB rays.

Not all sunglasses are made the same. Offering only sunglasses with the appropriate amount of UVA and UVB protection, Community Eye Center has a large line of sunglasses from which to choose. Although sunglasses purchased from an online retailer or a discount store may claim they are equipped with UV protection, they may not offer defense against both UVA and UVB radiation. If you are unsure of the level of UV protection in your sunglasses, we welcome you to bring your sunglasses into Community Eye Center so we can test the level of protection using our UV light meter.
