You can get your glasses at the same place that you get your prescription: Dr. Landrio and Associates. We have a large inventory of high-quality glasses to suit your eyes. If you choose glasses, we can even provide you with stylish frames from many different designer brands so that you can express your own personal sense of style with your eyewear.

When you look for an eye doctor, there’s no doubt that the quality of the eye exam is a major factor in deciding whether or not to make an appointment. The quality of the eye products available at the office is just as important, too. There’s no sense in getting an exam only to end up with flimsy products that break easily. Good-quality frames, specialty items like goggles, and a knowledgeable insurance biller all influence how well you do once you try to get and use corrective eyewear. Dr. Landrio & Associates in Bellmore provide both expert eye care and a wide variety of products that make it almost a given that you’ll find exactly what you need to see clearly.


Need Eyeglasses That Last and Light Therapy That Works?

After you’ve had an eye exam, you’ll have to talk about the eyewear you need or other treatments that help you see well. Because everyone has different tastes, an optometrist’s office has to have a very good selection of frames that appeal to a wide range of customers, and that’s just for those seeking conventional glasses. The office needs to offer contact fittings, too, and provide contacts for hard-to-fit conditions such as astigmatism. If you’re trying to find a new pair of frames and get lenses, seeing 300+ models of designer frames and hearing that you can get toric or gas-permeable lenses is reassuring. Along with those frames and special contact lenses, you’ll need coatings, such as anti-UV coatings for eyeglass lenses, and you’ll likely need a pair or two of sunglasses, be they prescription or not.

Even if you don’t have any special conditions other than needing basic eye correction, you have options. In addition to those frames, you can get prescription sports goggles if needed, allowing you to keep your glasses safe while still being able to see clearly when you play. Those needing light therapy for both general well-being and SAD treatment can find out more about the Varilux lighting system and all its varieties. Families who need eye care ranging from pediatric to geriatric can find optometrists here who know what each age group has to deal with.


Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need to see an eye care provider?

Many “silent” diseases, such as glaucoma and diabetes, can only be detected through regular eye exams. When these conditions are discovered earlier rather than later, they become easier to treat or manage, allowing for better long-term preservation of eyesight.

In addition, reading glasses from the drugstore often do not work well because most people have astigmatism and/or different prescriptions in each eye. As a result, many of these individuals experience persistent eye fatigue and headaches. Forgoing the eye exam also sacrifices the opportunity to screen for treatable diseases, as mentioned above.

How often do I need to get new eyeglasses?

This depends on a number of personal factors, such as changing needs, tastes or lifestyle, but you should visit your eye doctor at least once each year. If you notice problems with vision or headaches, then it’s best to consult your doctor right away for a full evaluation and new glasses, if needed.

How can I tell if I need bifocals?

Bifocals and progressive lenses are most often prescribed for presbyopia in those over age 40 and for individuals who have trouble seeing clearly both at a distance and when reading. Bifocals can also help a person who over-crosses his or her eyes when viewing close objects. An eye exam with a qualified eye doctor can assist you in determining whether bifocals are right for you.

Instead of bifocals, can I use progressive lenses and choose a smaller eyeglass frame?

Yes. Progressive lenses offer more precision in your viewing range within a smaller lens diameter. However, some frames are too small for a proper fit; a trained optician can work with you to find a frame that is sized correctly for both your lens and your face shape.

Why are the lenses so thick?

The final lens thickness depends on the strength of your prescription, the size of your frame, and your personal measurements. Fortunately, recent innovations in lens designs and materials have made lenses thinner by up to 60% in some cases. If lens thickness is a concern for you, notify the optometry staff member; he or she will help you select a frame and lens that allow you to use a thinner lens.

Will I have to wear eyeglasses forever?

Unfortunately, you probably will unless you elect to use contact lenses or corrective laser eye surgery. The great news is that there are lenses and surgical advancements in optometry every day.
