Optical Dispensing, Asheville, NC


If you need optical dispensing services in Asheville, NC, visit us at Vision Source of Asheville.

Optical Dispensing, Asheville, NCAn optician is a person who has special training in the correct fit for eyeglasses, so he or she can select an appropriate frame, dispense glasses to patients and adjust them to make sure they fit properly. Optical dispensing typically takes place within an optical shop, and these types of shops often work side-by-side with a healthcare professional who can perform an eye exam and give prescriptions.

The most common duty of an optical dispensing service is helping patients choose eyeglasses, starting with selecting a pair of frames that are flattering and will accommodate the patient’s prescription. For example, if your prescription requires bifocals or trifocals, your optician might recommend a slightly larger frame to allow for more space on the lens. The next step in the optical dispensing process is to select a material for the lenses, such as polycarbonate or high-index plastic.  The optician will also guide decisions on non-glare protection and Transitions lenses, which change from dark to light as you go inside and outside. 

Vision Source of Asheville chooses to support our local optical dispensing lab, which takes great pride in fabricating your customized spectacle lenses to our specifications. They warranty our lenses for a full year, and because they are right here in your community, we can usually dispense your quality glasses to you in record time.
