Chicago Optometrist Compass Eye Care Now Offering a New Collection of Designer Eyewear Brands

OAK PARK, Ill., May 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Compass Eye Care optometry clinic is pleased to announce the addition of a range of premium eyewear brands to expand the frame selection offered at their Oak Park clinic. The new collection features top glasses frame designs from Tomato, Vuarnet sunglasses, John Varvatos, and Spine Eyewear.

The availability of these premier brands gives Compass Eye Care the opportunity to remind Chicago optometry clients about the importance of receiving regular eye exams for their glasses and contact lenses prescriptions. Exams for persons who wear glasses should be received at least once every one to two years. Contact lens wearers should undergo an eye exam at least once per year to ensure optimal vision and eye health.

Each of the new designer eyewear frame brands offered connects with a specific type of client and audience. For example, the Tomato line is made specifically for children and babies. These frames are designed to be non-slip and high quality, yet reasonably priced.

The Vuarnet line of sunglasses comes from the same eyewear maker that began providing Skilynx technology to the French Olympic ski team decades ago. These sunglasses exude innovation and style as they keep the eyes protected from UV rays.

John Varvatos designer lenses feature a range of sleek styles. Options include aviators, wayfarers and retro looks in metal, tortoise, horn and clear. Spine Eyewear features “spine hinge technology” which allows them to flex and grip. They are non-slip, durable and extremely comfortable as their five spine “vertebrae” move with the wearer.

Selecting designer eyewear should be preceded by a thorough eye exam. Regular eye exams are key to optimal vision and eye health. A comprehensive exam allows for determining the correct prescription for glasses and/or contact lenses. However, it is also an opportunity to check for eye diseases and vision conditions so that they can be immediately addressed.

In addition to comprehensive eye exams, Compass Eye Care also assists with hard to fit contact lenses, Ortho-K overnight vision correction, scleral shells, dry eye and glaucoma treatments, LASIK and pediatric optometry.

Dr. Alex Tan explains, “At Compass Eye Care, our mission is to provide personalized optometry services in a friendly and professional manner. We use the most current, innovative technology and procedures available and offer premier products. We take pride in assisting our clients in attaining the best vision possible.”
