Quality eyeglasses take a little extra time and expertise, and can't be made cheap.
  • Our eye doctor uses years of experience to determine the best prescriptions for you and your lifestyle.
  • Lenses and frames are then custom-measured and fit by a trained technician who is thinking of your needs and the way you will be using your new eyewear. 
  • Our products are latest-generation - no "older models" or discontinued versions.
  • Eyeglasses are carefully manufactured in a US facility where they don't ship unless they are just right.

Checks and balances are in place because we hold our vendors to the highest standards.  Unlike many big retailers, we don't own the manufacturing or the lens labs so we are able to hold them accountable to your satisfaction.

With Walker Eye Care, you can expect the following:

  • Quality eyewear and lenses
  • Frame and Lens Guarantees
  • Hundreds of eyeglass frames in stock
  • Made expertly and exactly to your prescription
  • Friendly Staff

If some other optical providers offer One Hour Service, why should I wait?

The most common problem we encounter is a patient unhappy with their glasses made at a discount eyeglass facility. A high quality pair of eye glasses can't be delivered in a "fast food" style.

Quality glasses take a little extra time and expertise.


Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your New Eyewear

  • Start wearing your new glasses immediately
  • Wear your new glasses continuously unless prescribed for special use only
  • Wear your glasses as close to your face as possible – poor fit can change the prescription
  • Clean them regularly with proper solutions and cloths to keep the surface free of debris and smudges
  • Progressive Lens Wearers: Point your nose at reading material and adjust your chin to bring reading materials into sharpest focus

Lenses

Our philosophy when prescribing glasses is to educate you on the differences in design and quality of lenses available. Superior quality lenses are typically available through large labs and can not be made in just a couple of hours. Some commercial stores offer lenses in an hour or so, but you must understand that you are not receiving the best quality lenses availiable on the market. We use these larger labs to ensure the best quality lenses. You will not receive these lenses in one hour but we believe the wait is well worth it.

Customized progressive lenses: No-line progressive lenses by Varilux allow you to see better because they provide clear, comfortable vision at all distances. There are no age-telling lines on the Varilux lenses so no one needs to know you are wearing bifocals. High-performance digital lenses by Varilux give you the best clarity and fit possible.

Anti-reflective coating (also know as anti-glare): Crizal anti-reflection lenses help you see and look your best. In simple terms, the coating is actually layers of filters on the front and back surface of lenses that allow all of the light to pass through the lens instead of bouncing back as reflection. They are durable, easy to clean, and resist surface static. The most important feature is that the filter increases the amount of light that passes through the lens so you see better, clearer and sharper than before. Crizal Anti-reflective lenses are almost invisible.

Experio Polarized lenses: Squint no more! In simplest terms a polarized lens is a high tech sunglass filter that eliminates glare and allows light to pass through the lens in only one direction (like miniblinds). It also provides 100% UV protection for your eyes. Without doubt, Experio Polarized lenses are the lens of choice for driving, fishing, and skiing, golfing and all sunny outdoor activities.

Transitions®: Transitions Changeable lenses make your eyes more comfortable because they are designed to adapt to any light. They darken in the sunlight and lighten back to clear indoors.

Computer lenses: These new technology lenses are designed for your eyes to relax at the computer. They are designed to give you comfort and vision for close and intermediate distances. While these lenses are primarily designed for computer use, they work great for anyone requiring clear intermediate and near vision, such as musicians, architects, accountants, surgeons, and many others. They are available in plastic, glass and polycarbonate, single vision as well as progressive lenses too.

Hi-Index Lenses: These thin lenses come in wide range of choices, especially for strong prescriptions, but all are basically flatter front curves, resulting in thinner lighter lenses. They offer superior optics and can be easily used when rimless and thinner metal frames are being worn.

Polycarbonate: They are the strongest of all the optical lenses, these are recommended by the FDA for sports and safety and work best with most rimless frame styles. Think about your lifestyle needs and ask if these are missing from your wardrobe.

Contact Lenses

New advances in contact lens technology allow most people to successfully wear contact lenses-even those with astigmatism or bifocal requirements. You’ll quickly recognize that we go beyond the “one size fits all” approach to contact lenses and we understand the importance of personal attention when it comes to your vision and comfort.

Our doctors will thoroughly evaluate your visual needs, prescription, and long term eye health to determine which brand and type of contact lens combines for you the most convenient, comfortable, and healthy contact lenses available.

RGP Lenses

For those patients that have had a difficult time finding lenses that provide good enough vision for their lifestyle, there are RGP or "hard" contacts. These lenses do provide better vision in most cases, but are usually a bit more diffcult to adjust to comfort wise. There are many patients in these lenses that are completely happy and unwilling to switch to soft contact lenses.

Silicone Hydrogel Lenses

Another category of lenses that are fairly new to the market are the silicone hydrogel lenses. These lenses can provide many times more oxygen to the eyes compared to other category of lenses. The FDA has actually approved 2 of these lenses for up to 30 days of continuous wear without taking them out of you eyes. Sleeping in lenses is not for everyone, but many of our patients wear them for that amount of time with great success.These lenses are actually providing some patients with a second chance to remain in soft contact lenses. If there is a significant risk of failing ocular health due to lack of oxygen to the cornea, then these lenses may provide the needed oxygen and therefore may extend a patient's ability to remain in soft lenses.

Some of the most popular soft contact lens brands available today are:

Acuvue
Bausch + Lomb
Ciba Vision
CooperVision
Unilens

We fit lenses from all the major manufacturers including, but not limited to:

CooperVision (Biofinity, Frequency)
CibaVision/Alcon (Air Optix, Air Optix Night and Day)
Vistakon/Johnson & Johnson (Acuvue)
Bausch + Lomb (Pure Vision, SofLens, Optima)
