Eyeglass Prescriptions

Eyeglasses are the simplest way to improve your vision, and are still the first choice for millions of Americans. Dr. Burns can prescribe the lenses that are right for you, but only you can choose the style that expresses who you are! Dr. Burns has all the latest eyeglass fashions and accessories at his Middletown Eye Care and Southend Eye Care optical shops.

“I really appreciate the care and professionalism I receive at Dr. Burns office. They’re never rushed and don’t prescribe new glasses unless really needed. I’ll keep going there and will continue to recommend Dr. Burns to my friends who are not happy with their eye doctors.”

We will take all prescriptions, as long as they are dated within the past 2 years. A glasses prescription expires after 2 years.

How long will it take for my glasses to arrive?

Typically it takes 5-10 business days for glasses to be completed.

What is the best way to clean my glasses?

We strongly suggest using a cleaning cloth and eye glass cleaner. You can purchase both in our optical shop. Do not use clothing or dry tissue/paper towel to clean your glasses. Both can cause scratches on the lenses. If you do not have eye glass cleaner, you can use warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent.
