Prescription Glasses in San Francisco


No matter what your eye condition, or how you choose to view the world, there are now prescription lenses that meet your unique lifestyle and vision correction needs. We offer many types of lenses, including bifocal and multifocal, high-index and aspheric lenses, polycarbonate and progressive lenses.

Photochromic lenses, also known as Transitions® lenses, are clear and colorless until exposed to UV light. When outdoors, these lenses transition into UV-blocking sunglasses for the ultimate in convenience and protection.

You can also customize your glasses by opting for certain lens treatments like added UV protection, anti-reflective coatings and scratch-resistant coatings.

If you're over the age of 40, you may begin to need reading glasses for discerning fine print due to presbyopia. There are a number of options available for correcting presbyopia including bifocals, multifocal, and progressive lenses with new technology improving the options continuously. You should speak to the optician regarding the best solution for your individual needs.

Sunglasses and Prescription Sunglasses


Our collection of designer sunglasses features lenses with 100% UV protection from UVA to UVB rays. We also offer a variety of types of lenses, including polarized sunglasses and different tints to match your activities and lifestyle needs. If you need vision correction to see clearly, our practice will craft sunglasses lenses to match your precise prescription.

Our optical store offers sunglasses for men, sunglasses for women, and sunglasses for kids. From aviator sunglasses to trendy and bold styles, we carry it all.

Glasses for Kids


About 1 in 5 children needs prescription glasses to correct their vision. Unfortunately, it can be hard to get children to wear glasses for one of several reasons. Children can find glasses uncomfortable, "uncool" and unstylish, or too fragile for an active life. Fortunately, there are strong, comfortable, stylish frames now made for children.

The key to a correct fit is a comfortable fit. Our experienced optometric team will take great care in ensuring that your child's glasses fit their nose, head, and eyes in a secure yet comfortable way.

When choosing frames for your child, be sure to involve them in the process. This will increase the chances of them wanting to wear their glasses. And when they wear their glasses, they'll be more successful - no matter the setting.

Specialty Eyewear


Certain sports, activities and hobbies require specialty eyewear to keep your eyes safe and vision clear. Whether you play racquetball, go SCUBA diving or spend your leisure time hunting, our eye care team will examine your vision and recommend the most appropriate eyewear.

We also offer blue light glasses, computer glasses and color-blind glasses.
