Diagnosis

Prescription Eyeglasses in North Austin

At King and Rose Optical we diagnose and prescribe eyeglasses and contact lenses to correct for myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism(curvature irregularity), and presbyopia (loss of focusing). We are experts at refractions and correcting vision with eyeglasses and contact lenses. The King and Rose Optical approach to prescribing eyeglasses lenses is based on the fact that for every level of prescription, frame, and person there is a specific lens material and glare-free coating that will work best. The doctor and our experienced opticians will always recommend the best lens for you based on your needs. We have streamlined our lens options to be able to offer you the absolute best lenses at the best value in North Austin.

All of our eyeglass lenses come standard with premium glare-free, UV, and scratch resistant coatings along with a one-year replacement warranty against scratches due to normal use.

For people with high astigmatism or very high prescriptions we use advanced digital single vision lenses to provide much clearer vision and a more comfortable eyeglass experience. Digital lenses help to minimize the “fishbowl” effect often experienced by people with high prescriptions. The vision through a digital lens feels more natural, similar to vision through contact lenses. Our standard lenses are HD, and our digital lenses are like 4K TV. For our progressive lens options, we have selected only the best digital freeform progressive lens designs and packaged them at a price that cannot be beat for the level of quality we provide. Many opticals do a one-size-fits-all progressive lens. This doesn’t allow them to maximize the quality of distance, intermediate, and near vision that is so important in a progressive lens. Our experienced optometrist and optician will ask questions and select your lens and frame to maximize the vision and comfort through your new progressive lenses.

Contact Lenses & Eyeglasses Fitting In North Austin, Texas

The starting point for people with low prescriptions is standard polycarbonate lenses with glare-free coating, UV, and scratch resistance. These lenses are thin, lightweight, and impact resistant. For better optical clarity and more scratch resistant material, we recommend our Trivex lens. For high prescriptions we use 1.67 or 1.74 Hi-index lenses the make the lenses as thin as possible while providing excellent optical clarity. We get customers from all over North Austin because of our excellent lens options and curated frame selections. One of our favorite things is to take someone that didn’t think they could look great in eyeglasses because of their high prescription and find something perfect for them.
