A trip to any third-world country reveals just how few of the world's population have access to these wonderful devices. With the doctor's experience along with the latest in high tech diagnostic equipment, it's now possible to have the most accurate prescriptions possibe. Even patients who cannot give accurate responses during testing can be effectively managed, including young children, handicapped individuals, non-English speaking patients, as well as post-stroke patients.

Once the prescription has been determined, the correct lenses must be selected. Eyeglasses have evolved from simple glass lenses to a myriad of materials, including CR-39 resin, polycarbonates, trivex, sun-sensitive lenses, polaroids, ultra-thin high-index lenses, as well as complex aspherics. Lens designs have also evolved rapidly over the past twenty years. Progressive lenses, occupational designs, and computer specific lenses require skill and experience to properly prescribe. Dr. Crawford and the rest of the staff at Northcross Eye Associates will help you get the optimal prescription, material, and lens design to make sure you obtain the best and most efficient vision possible.
