Stack Optical is located in Cherry Creek, Denver and is a leader in custom made eyeglasses and contact lenses for all types of activities, including hunting eyeglasses and for shooting activities. Many different factors go into the quality of your vision in everyday life, but especially in outdoor or active settings.

 

For obvious reasons, your vision needs to be at its best in order to safely and successfully practice shooting guns or hunting.  The first step, of course, is an eye exam if your current prescription is more than 2 years old, yes the eyes can and do change substantially during that time frame so make sure you have recently had an eye exam. With that information, talk to our doctors about what your goals are, as well as any issues or problems you are currently experiencing. They can recommend the best hunting eyeglasses.

Hunting Eyeglasses

The primary ways that Stack Optical can help you is in hunting eyeglasses and special outdoor custom eye glasses that are specifically designed for not only outdoor use but actually for shooting and hunting as well.  First, we will determine if any progression is needed in your eyeglass lenses.  Meaning, if you have any tendency for presbyopia, which is the condition by which the eyes have a more difficult time accommodating both near and far vision. In the old days, that meant wearing “bi-focals” but nowadays these are seamlessly blended into one lens that appears normal when people look at you – no thick line as you may remember your grandparents or parents wearing.

The other thing we do well is provide custom tinting to either your regular glasses, or to your hunting eyeglasses. After listening to the type of environment you are most likely to shoot or hunt in, we can apply a special computer formulated tint that is designed to both protect your eyes from harmful UV rays but also to provide your eye the clearest possible picture, so as to help hit the target also !

Eyecare for the those in their 40’s and 50’s

At this age, our vision often starts to change once again, as now the eye muscles begin to lose flexibility and elasticity, and even if you have never had to wear corrective lenses, you may start to recognize the need for them at this stage in life. Typically, reading things up close can become more difficult for most people, as well as the need for more light in able to be able to read clearly This is a common and normal part of the aging process.

This eye condition is called “Presbyopia“, and there are many options available to you to combat it’s effects. The simplest options are either reading glasses or, if you already wear corrective lenses, a bi-focal or graduated eyeglass lens. These lenses feature normal corrective powers for most of your daily activities, but include in the lower part of the lens a more magnified power which allows for easier close up reading. These are not your grandfathers bi-focals, modern technology allows for the different lenses to be nearly invisible and thus not noticeable at all

Other options include LASIK surgery or Vision Shaping Treatment (VST) procedures, which can correct these visual imbalances in a quick and painless outpatient surgery environment.

At Stack Optical, we offer all of the above solutions and more, to our patients in this age category who may be suffering from one or more of these common eyesight ailments. The first step is to come in and have a comprehensive eye exam, something that should be done yearly or every other year anyway, with this exam we can detect early signs of eye health problems and thus give you the best possible treatment options.

Eye Care for Teenagers

As children enter into their teen years, there are a few things to keep an eye on in order to ensure maximum health for their eyes and vision.

First, by now many children will have shown the need for eyeglasses and may already have been wearing them for quite some time. To be sure, all teenagers should receive a professional eye exam once a year. This is very important as eyesight during these years is always changing.

The second thing to consider is that many teenagers are eager to try wearing contact lenses for the first time. This is a very important decision that can bring many benefits but also great potential risk to the teenager’s eye health. Always consult with a licensed medical doctor to assess whether it is safe to wear contact lens and which types might be ideal. At Stack Optical we have been fitting contact lenses on teenagers for many year and we have the experience to help you make this important decision.

Lastly, be sure to talk to your teenager about protecting their eye from injury. Sports like tennis, baseball, softball, and others all carry a risk so be sure to talk to us about different eye protection options – we have a large assortment of glasses and sunglasses that can protect their vulnerable eyes from impact, UV damage, and more.

Eye Care for Children

Eye care is all about protecting your most important asset – your vision. Protecting your eyesight is a life long endeavor, but certainly during the formative childhood years is especially important, as key muscles are developing during this time.

Children in the 2 to 5 year range especially our at a time where proper vision alignment and care can optimize the hand-eye coordination and reading skills so important to success as an adult. As children in this age like to draw, look at pictures, and touch things. You can help this process by connecting books with pictures and encouraging your child to practice these skills.

Puzzles, LEGOS, crayons, and playing with balls and other toys will all help develop your child’s vision capabilities.

The most important thing of all is regular eye checkups with a qualified eye doctor. Experts recommend an eye exam every year for healthy children, and possibly even more frequently if your child has experienced health issues with their eyesight.

Call us today at 303 321-1578 and make an appointment to check your child’s eye health.

Disposable Contact Lenses

If you normally wear eyeglasses due to the discomfort or hassle of traditional soft contact lenses, you might want to come talk to us to see the latest options in disposable contact lenses.

 

Recent technological advances mean that contact lenses are thinner and lighter (and thus more comfortable) than ever before. These contacts are typically used only once per day or up to one week, than simply thrown away and a new pair is used. These are ideal because in the event one is lost, it isn’t really an issue.

 

These disposable contacts are much less expensive than you would imagine and are very affordable. If you normally prefer glasses or could not get used to the feel of a soft contact lens, we recommend you call us at 303 321-1589 or come in and we can explain to you some of the options and their pricing.

Cataract Prevention

Most people have heard of cataracts, but may not be sure exactly what they are or if they are preventable. Cataracts form on the lens of the eye, they are a clouding or the lens of the eye itself.  This can happen suddenly as a result of blunt trauma, but is much more commonly resulting from the natural aging process, and is more typical over the age of 65.

Besides other factors like aging, genetics, other diseases and even cigarette smoking,  studies have shown that sunlight and UV rays can significantly increase the risk of  developing cataracts. Thus it is very important to always use a quality sunglass lens if wearing sunglasses in the outdoors.  Generally speaking, the cheaper glasses one finds in a supermarket or chain store are of low quality and can actually do more harm than good by allowing dangerous UV filters to pass through the sunglass lens and hit your eye.

Technology in prescription sunglasses has advanced greatly in the last several years and we invite you to come in (or call us at 303 321-1578) in order to discuss custom options for you – we have both prescription and non-prescription sunglasses specially made for different type of outdoor activities like golf, driving, boating etc.  Come in or call and we can give you more information !
