Types of Prescription Eyeglasses and Sunglasses at Eye Site of Katy


At Eye Site of Katy, our team of optometrists is always available to help you get the best vision possible. And, our sales professionals are just as valuable when it comes to helping you look your best. We take the time to offer you the time necessary to help you find the best pair of prescription eyeglasses or sunglasses for just about any need. We're often asked which is the best product out there. The answer isn't always that clear.


What's the Right Type of Eyeglasses for You?

The most important thing to know is that everyone's need for eyeglasses are different. When you visit us for an eye exam, you expect to receive a personalized prescription that helps improve your vision. The same is true for eyeglass frames and lenses. You need the very best fit for your facial and for your tastes.

We offer a wide range of trendy options for you to choose from in all of your favorite brands and colors. At the same time, we also offer classic looks and even some retro glasses for those looking for something very specific. Our team will work with you to find the best product for you by doing the following.

What's Your Face Shape?

The size, style, and overall design of the best eyeglasses or sunglasses for you really depends on your face shape. For example, those who have the strong lines of a square face tend to do better with glasses that are less angular and are thinner. On the other hand, those with an oval face can benefit from strong lines and darker, more easy-to-see glasses.

What's Your Style?

What you like is important, too. Do you want glasses that stand out or blend in with your facial features? Some of our clients love to choose glasses with bright colors and patterns to match their personality. You may want to select those that are very sophisticated and classic looking. On the other hand, there's nothing wrong with the kids picking something fun and even themed after their favorite character.

What Brand Is Right for You?

The next step in the process is selecting a brand. We focus first on finding you a comfortable pair of glasses that fit your face and style first. Then, you can narrow down options in brands. We offer a large selection of brands and designer frames so that everyone can find the product right for their needs.

  • For sports lovers, we recommend brands like NikeVision and Adidas. The kids love the way these look and parents love their durability on the field or court.
  • For those who want the most stylish options, check out our line from Coach, Dolce & Gabbana, and Gucci. We offer all of the latest looks.
  • For those looking for a trusted name brand that's been around a long time with classic features, check out Ray-Ban. These also offer a fantastic selection of sunglasses.

Do You Need Sunglasses?

Your eyes are just as important as your skin when it comes to protecting from the sun's rays. If you are coming in to get glasses, we often recommend purchasing sunglasses as well. This helps to protect your eyes from sun damage, which can both lead to complex conditions and vision loss. If you are planning to ski, enjoy water sports, or drive in bright conditions, we recommend having a pair of sunglasses to reduce glare.

To choose these, we'll talk to you about style and features, just like purchasing eyeglasses. We offer options ranging from metal to nylon frames in just about any color and style. Choose brands such as Harley Davidson, Izod, Calvin Klein, Polo, Jones New York, and much more.
