Eyeglasses Fitting

Eyeglasses & Sunglasses, Wilkes-Barre

A lensmeter is used to check the prescription of your lenses.

The performance of your eyewear doesn’t just depend on the correct prescription, but also on the selection of the frames, proper lens design and individual measurements when creating your glasses.

Our optician will help you pick frames according to your face shape, skin tone and eyebrows, while taking into consideration your job, hobbies and lifestyle. She then custom-fits the frames to your face.

Once your new glasses with their lenses have arrived, our optician can do a final check with our  auto lensmeter to verify that the prescription of your eye glasses is correct and to confirm the correct mounting of lenses in the frames.

Our high-quality lenses

We offer all the latest innovations in lenses to give you the sharpest and clearest vision. Our modern polycarbonate eyeglass lenses are lighter, thinner and more scratch-resistant than glass or plastic lenses. They are made in labs proven by Dr. O’Donnell to have the quality necessary for the clearest vision.

Depending on your eyesight needs and your preference, Dr. O’Donnell prescribes one or more of the following lenses:

  • Single Vision lenses for distance or near vision
  • Bifocals for near and distance
  • Trifocal for near, computer length and distance
  • Progressive lenses for multiple-distance correction
  • Computer glasses —these can be single vision, bifocal, trifocal or progressive and are designed to prevent eye strain. They are usually made with anti-glare coatings.

In addition, Dr. O’Donnell and our optician may recommend customization of your lenses as needed to further improve your vision clarity and comfort. We carry every kind of modern lens and lens coating for eyeglasses, including:

  • Anti-glare/anti-reflective coatings: reduce eyestrain for night time driving and using a computer
  • Digitally made high-definition lenses – ensures sharper peripheral vision
  • Impact-free lenses
  • Mirror lenses
  • Polarized sun lenses
  • Progressive lenses
  • Tinted lenses
  • Transitions® lenses to adjust to the level of light exposure
  • Scratch-resistant lenses
  • Ultraviolet (UV) protection

Choosing your lenses

Once Dr. O’Donnell has determined your exact prescription, he briefs our optician on your additional needs, such as Transitions or progressive lenses. She will also discuss with you the additional options available for your lenses.

Dr. O’Donnell uses the best quality labs to make your new eyeglasses to ensure accuracy and the clearest vision possible. These are national labs that are located nearby and have a quick turnaround.

Types of lens prescriptions

Single Vision Lenses

Single vision lenses have one viewing area throughout the lens and this corrected area can be for distance, near distance or reading. Single-vision lenses can also function as occupational glasses for certain types of work.

Bifocal Lenses

Bifocals are some of the most commonly prescribed multifocal lenses. A small area of the bifocal lens is reserved for closeup vision correction while the rest of the lens is usually a distance correction.


Trifocal lenses have three points of focus: usually for distance, intermediate and close-up vision. Trifocals have an added segment area above the bifocal for viewing objects about an arm’s length away. Flat top trifocals are the most-widely used type. The flat top bifocal is shaped like a semi circle with a straight line at the top.

Progressive no-line bifocals

Progressive lenses correct vision for multiple distances without the visible segment lines of bifocal or trifocal lenses. People like progressive lenses because they look like single-vision lenses, never revealing the need for bifocals.
