Glasses are a very unique item in your life. They are a medical device that allow you to see, but they are also a fashion statement that is displayed prominently on your face. Here at Fairhaven Vision Clinic, we have an acute understanding of this. Our staff will help you get the perfect pair of eye glasses that meets all of your medical and vision needs as well as makes your desired fashion statement.
Here at our office we incorporate the latest technology to assist the evaluation of spectacle prescriptions, peripheral vision, binocular vision function, intraocular pressure, and overall eye health. Computerized examination instruments are used to supplement rather than replace personalized care. Examinations include tests for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and the ocular effects of many general health disorders such as diabetes and high blood pressure, as well as effects of medications. A dilated pupil examination allows us to provide the best assessment of eye health. It is recommended for all new patients and on a scheduled basis thereafter.

Lenses: Whether you need high index lenses to reduce the weight of your high prescription glasses or shatter resistant polycarbonate lenses for your safety glasses, our staff will help you figure out the right lens material for your new eye glasses. They will also help you consider the myriad of other features that can be added to your eye glasses such as anti-glare coatings, transitions that automatically change to sunglasses outside, anti-scratch coatings, blue blockers to reduce eyestrain and damage from computer use, bifocals, trifocals, progressives (no line trifocals), and others. We can get
most makes of progressives but recommend top brands like Varilux and Shamir.
Contact lenses can be a great addition to a person’s life, and there are many options if you decide that contact lenses are right for you.

They fit contact lenses from all the major brands like:
