Style & Performance
Unless you’re an optician, doctor or trained medical professional, when you get new glasses, you’re just thinking at a high level: can I see well? are these comfortable? But influencing the answer to each of those questions are a million tiny details and decades of technological advances.
We believe “seeing well” and a comfortable fit come from the marriage of the right lenses with the right frame. Your eye doctor will write a prescription for the best possible vision correction and an optician will help translate that prescription into the medical device you’ll wear on your face.
Getting to know you is not just a marketing ploy – we truly need to understand how you live to fit you with the best glasses. Our recommendations will change based on if you spend most of your time outside or in front of a screen.
At the end of the day – we want your Twenty200 Eyewear purchase to be exactly right for how you live.
Helping you look your best
The right frames for you
There are several factors to think through in selecting the best frames, the most important being what do you like? Our opticians will start with your personal style, whether it’s committed to classic shapes and materials or pushing more into the unusual and unique.
The materials and construction matter. If you’re active and sweat a lot, we may recommend a rubberized frame material or specific nose bridge type to ensure your glasses stay in place. For kids, durability is key and Twenty200 Eyewear has a range of highly flexible and sturdy frames.
Brands for a range of style
The shape of a frame accentuates different features on various face types, be it round, oval, triangular or square.

Common lens types, materials and treatments
Lenses may be single-vision, lined bifocals or progressives and can be made from a wide range of materials including plastics, polycarbonate and trivex. If that seems like it creates a near endless array of options – it does! That’s why having a patient, knowledgeable optician guiding the selection is critical. Our opticians will help you understand what’s best for you at a range of price points.
