Custom Eye Glasses Q & A

What are custom glasses?

Custom glasses (or eyeglasses) correct or improve vision-related problems, like farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism. They have plastic or metal frames, support glass or plastic lenses, and rest comfortably on your ears and the bridge of your nose.

The Corona Vision Center team offers custom glasses through I.a.Eyeworks, a brand founded in 1979 right here in Southern California. 

I.a.Eyeworks eyeglasses are unique in that they’re designed for a variety of facial structures and style preferences. Their loud colors, unique patterns, and quality workmanship stand head and shoulders above other designer brands. 

What types of eye problems do custom glasses treat?

The Corona Vision Center team uses custom glasses to treat various vision problems, including:

  • Myopia or nearsightedness (distant objects appear blurry)
  • Hyperopia or farsightedness (up-close objects appear blurry)
  • Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia (farsightedness caused by aging)

After a comprehensive eye exam, your provider writes you an eyeglasses prescription and makes personalized recommendations.

What does getting custom glasses involve?

Getting custom glasses begins with a comprehensive eye exam. Your Corona Vision Center provider reviews your medical records, asks about your goals, and completes several tests, including:

Visual acuity test
Your provider asks you to read letters of various sizes on a chart that’s across the room. You cover one eye at a time and read several lines. You might also look through special lenses to help you see better.

Visual field
This test assesses your peripheral (or side) vision. Your provider holds up a finger or a handheld light and asks you to follow it with your eyes. 

Corneal topography
Corneal topography is an imaging test that creates a “map” of your cornea. It identifies problems with your cornea’s curvature (astigmatism) and helps determine if you’re a candidate for contact lenses. 

Slit-lamp exam
Your provider administers eye drops that dilate your pupils and shines a light into your eyes. Then, they use a magnifying lens to look at the back of your eyes.

This test measures your eye pressure and checks for glaucoma. A machine called a tonometer blows a small puff of air into your eye, and a computer measures your cornea’s response.

Eyeglass prescription
After gathering all of the necessary information, your Corona Vision Center provider writes you an eyeglass prescription. You can then try on various I.a.Eyeworks frames and choose a pair that aligns with your fashion sense.
