Optical Department

Optical DepartmentAt Columbia Eye Clinic, we take experience, training and education seriously. When you leave your Columbia Eye Clinic physician with a prescription for glasses or contacts, you can rest assured that the same high level of professional knowledge and caring will continue at our Optical Departments, right under the same roof.

Columbia Eye Clinic’s Optical Departments are staffed by licensed and board-certified opticians. We carry a vast array of frames and lenses, sunglasses, reading glasses and contacts that fit any need, any fashion and any pocketbook. And our extremely competitive prices will pleasantly surprise you.

We offer the most advanced lens technology available.

Autograph III Single Vision Digital Lenses

Optical DepartmentBest used in slightly heavier prescriptions above +/- 2.50 or 3.00, Autograph III lenses are fully customized for your prescription, frame selection, eye measurements and position you wear your frame. This lens maximizes the lens surface for edge to edge clarity. Our patients who have previously disliked wearing glasses because of poor peripheral vision, especially contact lens wearers, have been astonished by the undisturbed, consistent vision all the way across this lens. Digital technology allows the prescription to be more accurate and will give you the best vision, much like you experience during your eye exam.

Autograph II Progressive Lenses (No-Line Bi-Focals)

Optical DepartmentAugtograph II is our best progressive lens (also known as no-line bifocals) and is fully customized down to the millimeter for your prescription, frame selection, eye measurements and position you wear your frame. You will experience significantly wider fields of view, crisper distance vision, and an easier transition as you move through different viewing zones, which feels much more like natural vision.

Spectrum Progressive Lenses (No-Line Bi-Focals)
