Selecting your lenses and frames is a very personal choice. A wide variety of options are available that can be tailored to suit not only your medical needs but also your fashion preferences.



Highlight your features, play with color, and augment vision for different functions such as reading, driving and playing sports. With all the choices available, the experience can be daunting without the right guidance. Broad View Eye Center in Broadview Heights makes the choice easy.


Design, material, and treatments are the three components that make up a pair of prescription lenses. It is important to select the right combination of these elements for your particular visual needs and to always consult your eye care professional.

The knowledgeable staff at Broad View Eye Center will consider long-term wearing comfort, style, features, and function when suggesting a new pair of eyeglasses. The eyeglasses become as unique as the person taking them home.

Eyeglass Lenses

Selecting the right eyeglass lens depends largely on its function. From single vision lenses to progressive polycarbonate lenses, we are happy to help you find what best suits your needs. Regardless of your situation, your eye care provider can help determine what types of lenses will work best for you in terms of comfort, function, and design.

Frame Styles

When choosing a frame, the shape and size of the frame should enhance the color of your eyes, complement your skin tone and play up the best features of your face shape.

Most people need more than one pair of glasses, such as one for everyday wear and another for outdoor activities. Having different style frames for different activities and moods makes wearing glasses more fun.



With the wide variety of lens options available, you can customize your “sunnies” (sunglasses) to meet your visual, protection, performance and comfort needs. Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present even on cloudy days. Quality sun wear provides 100 percent UV protection and can significantly reduce the risk of vision problems caused by sunlight such as cataracts and retinal damage.

Glare, an issue that makes it difficult to see objects clearly by washing out colors and details, can be combated by polarized lenses. Looking at a scene with polarized lenses, you’ll notice the colors are deeper, richer and bolder, and details are clearer and more distinct. Polarized lenses also help reduce squinting, which, in turn, reduces eye fatigue, tension, and eyestrain.

Anti-Reflective Lenses

Wearers of prescription glasses and sunglasses commonly encounter annoying glare and reflections caused by light bouncing off their lenses. This glare makes it more difficult to see, especially at night. Anti-reflective lenses reduce these reflections allowing more light to pass through to your eyes.

All lens surfaces naturally reflect light and this reflection can prevent between seven to 14 percent of the light needed for optimal vision. Wearing non-AR lenses is like trying to read a book in a dimly lit room. Since AR lenses allow more light to reach your eyes by reducing reflections, it’s like turning up the lights in a room, making it easier to see.

Lenses and frames are a very necessary and personal choice. Broad View Eye Center in Broadview Heights, Ohio has the experience to guide you toward eyewear selections that are comfortable and that work to complement your face. For help, schedule an appointment with your eye care provider and we’ll be in touch with you shortly.


Lens and Frame Warranty:

Unlike our competitors, we don’t charge for material warranties. At Broad View Eye Center, all our frames and lenses are warranted for one year. If the lenses are scratched or damaged, they may be replaced one time with the same prescription at no cost within one year of purchase date. If one of our premium anti-reflective treatments, such as Crizal Advance or Viso XC+, are purchased then the lenses will be warranted for an additional year. If the lenses or frame needs to be replaced more than one time during the warranty period, the replacement charges will be discounted 50% from the usual and customary fee. Our frames are covered for one year against manufacturer’s defects. There is no warranty on lost or stolen items. Any minor repairs or adjustments are free within the lifetime of the glasses. Due to restrictions on certain Vision Care Plans, this warranty may not apply to all products, please ask any of our staff to explain any exclusions that may apply to your eyewear. We will always do our best to make sure the product you’ve purchased meets your needs long after you leave our office. All eyeglass lenses are custom prescriptive products. Any orders canceled after the order is placed are subject to a 30% restocking fee.

Progressive Non-Adapt Policy:

If you cannot adapt to progressive addition lenses (“no-line bifocal”), our office will make new lenses in any other design that you wish at no charge, within 30 days of dispensing. Since the original lenses were a custom prescription item, which must be discarded, there are no refunds of the difference in cost if the re-made pair is of lesser value.
