Customized eyeglasses and sunglasses

Eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses are some of the most customized items that most people will ever own. Eyeglasses are made to your prescription and your measurements and to fit your needs.

There are new automated machines to take the measurements needed for your eyeglasses. Mayo Clinic Optical has looked into several of these. Mayo Clinic Optical has so far found that the highly trained staff is able to take these measurements just as accurately. They take into account your personal needs, posture and head position which a machine cannot account for. Mayo Clinic Optical is always looking into this technology but hasn't yet found a device that provides the accuracy of its skilled opticians.
