Frames to fit you and your life

Professionally trained Opticians in every Devlyn Optical Store are ready to help you pick frames that are both functional and fashionable. Shopping for frames starts with your lens prescription. Many lenses must have a certain shape for maximum effectiveness.

Matching your lenses with a frame that fits well and looks good on you is what our Opticians at Devlyn Optical do best. You can be assured of a wide selection of frames and a team of professionals whose recommendations you can trust.

Picking up the right Frame

Frame Size - A frame should cover 20 to 30 percent of your face, with the top part of the frame closely following your eyebrow line. Too large a frame can catch glare and create distortions in your vision. If the frame is too small, your peripheral or side vision may be limited.
If your prescription is strong or you have astigmatism, consider small frames with rounded edges because they reduce distortions created by having too much of the lens outside the line of vision.

Frame Material - Most frames are made of plastic or metal. Metal frames are the lightest whereas plastic ones are more durable and are recommended for children and people with higher prescription (thicker lenses).
The recent metal frames are remarkably flexible and can be twisted completely and will revert back without any damage to the frame.

Good Fit makes You Feel Good

Eyeglasses should be comfortable when you wear them. A perfect fit makes you feel good. Eyeglasses need to rest comfortably on your nose bridge and avoid irritation at the back of your ears.Our optometrists at Devlyn Optical closely examine and adjust nose bridges and hinges to make eyeglasses a perfect fit for your face.

You are lucky to wear glasses

Did you know that according to the World Health Organization (WHO) 285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide. In their study, the WHO looked for some of the communalities shared by those millions of people and found that the leading cause of visual impairments globally was uncorrected refractive errors.

What does this mean? This means people not being taking the necessary preventative steps to be treated for their visual impairments. This means people that need some sort of corrective vision like prescription glasses, contacts, or even refractive surgery choose to not do anything about it instead. Yes, many of these people who suffer from a visual impairment may not have the resources available to obtain the care that they need, but I ask, what is your excuse?

  • Are you simply used to seeing poorly?
  • Since it’s not broken, why fix it?

At Devlyn Optical, we believe that this statistic makes absolutely no sense since 80% of all visual impairments can be prevented or cured with proper preventative care. This means a yearly comprehensive eye examination with dilatation.

I urge you to take control of your vision health and take the first step by scheduling your eye exam today. Remember that and eye examination is for so much more than just glasses. Through a comprehensive eye exam, the optometrist will not only check the health of your eyes, most importantly the optometrist will perform a thorough evaluation of your visual health looking for indications of eye conditions and diseases like cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma, which can be easily detected with a comprehensive eye exam.

So stop by Devlyn Optical Store today where one of our highly qualified opticians is eager to help you find the perfect pair of glasses for your prescription and style.

We hope to see you soon!
