Optical Shop

Optical ShopBarban Optical offers the latest technology including a lens information center and virtual demonstrator that allows you to see yourself in your new eyewear as others see you.

We are able to provide the most recent lens designs that allow for thinner lenses in all prescriptions, better peripheral vision for progressive lens wearers as well as better contrast for night time driving.

Lenses: We can fit you with a lens that will suit your lifestyle needs, be it for driving, reading, spending hours at a computer, playing music, or playing sports.

Coatings: We recommend an anti-reflective coating on all lenses to reduce glare and reflections. An AR coating allows 99% of the light to pass through the lens making for clearer vision, especially at night. We use a state of the art AR coating that is combined with a scratchproof hydrophobic coating which makes the lenses easier to clean and care for.

Tints: Transition lenses darken when exposed to ultraviolet light and therefore is a good choice for someone who is frequently in and out of doors. We recommend a polarized lens for a sunglass lens because it is the only lens that will eliminate glare. Let us demonstrate to you how a polarized lens eliminates glare.

CONTACT LENSES: While contact lenses in general are a safe and effective means of vision correction, they can occasionally result in side effects and more rarely, vision-threatening complications resulting from corneal infections. Therefore, we would prefer not to measure you for a contact lens prescription if it is your intention to purchase your contact lenses elsewhere or by mail order. It is in your best interest to have your contact lenses provided by the person involved in the fitting and follow-up care.

  • We carry many different brands of contact lenses including Acuvue, Ciba, Coopervision, and Bausch and Lomb.
  • You may be a candidate for contact lenses even if you have astigmatism or currently wear glasses that correct for distance and reading.
  • We carry tinted contact lenses which can change the color of your eyes or enhance your eye color.
  • We can arrange for your contact lenses to be shipped directly to you from the manufacturer when you order them through our office.
