Frames & Sunglasses
At our eye care centers in Athens, Madison, Rogersville, and Huntsville, Alabama and Chattanooga and Ooltewah, Tennessee, we carry a wide selection of premium eyeglass frames and lenses for both children and adults. From finding the right frame style to the perfect fitting pair of eyeglasses, at Pathway Eye we’re here to help you look and feel your best when it comes to your eyewear.
In addition to eyeglasses, we also offer an array of prescription sunglasses as well. Sunglasses offer UV ray protection and make it easy to enjoy outdoor activities and driving while still having clear vision.
Shop Eyeglass Lenses
The eyeglass lenses and lens treatments you choose should help you see clearly in all areas of your life, whether you’re driving, using a computer, reading a book, looking at your phone, playing sports, or something else. Our optical staff will ask you about what you do for work, whether you have a commute, and what kind of hobbies you enjoy so they can recommend lens options that will meet the visual needs of your lifestyle.
Many lens treatment options are available to help enhance your vision experience. Glare reduction lenses increase the quality of clear vision by reducing nighttime glare from headlights, taillights, and streetlights. They also reduce eye strain and the fatigue that can come from reflections on your glasses. Scratch-resistant lenses are treated with hard scratch-resistant protection to eliminate the risk of scratches and marks appearing on your eyeglass lenses and disrupting your vision.
We offer a variety of lens types to suit every need, including:
- Single vision lenses: These lenses have one dioptric power used throughout the entire lens. They are used to correct vision for both near and far distances.
- Bifocal lenses: These lenses contain two prescriptions that have a dividing line between them. The top of the lens corrects for farsightedness and the bottom corrects for nearsightedness.
- Trifocal lenses: These lenses include three prescriptions separated by lines and correct faraway, intermediate, and near vision.
- Progressive lenses: These lenses also offer multiple prescriptions in one lens, but they are line-free, offering a smooth transition when shifting your view between the prescriptions.
