November 16, 2021

Finding the right pair of glasses can be challenging, especially if you’re not sure where to look. Plus, there are so many options available today, it’s hard to make a selection.

At Raphael Opticians, we pride ourselves on being among the best sources for top prescription glasses and designer eyeglasses in White Plains, NY. Our vast catalog of eyeglasses includes selections from all over the world, all specially designed to suit our customers' preferences.

If you’re in the market for quality eyewear, Raffy’s, as we are fondly called, is the way to go. Here’s what you need to know.

When do you need prescription eyeglasses?

If you’ve gone most of your life without needing corrective lenses, the need for prescription glasses can slowly creep up on you. When the following signs start to present, or you can no longer ignore them, it’s time to visit your optician.

Blurred or fuzzy vision

This is when your vision starts to lose the sharpness around people and objects. For example, you look at a cluster of trees but the leaves appear as one big blur.

Frequent squinting

If you find yourself squinting often to make sense of what you’re looking at, it may be time for prescription glasses.


This is when your eyes feel tired all too often during the day, especially when in front of a computer or phone screen for long periods of time. Your optician can help diagnose the cause and prescribe the right corrective lenses

Double vision

Frequently seeing double without being intoxicated or suffering from a concussion is a huge red flag. Don't ignore it. See your eye doctor right away.

Deteriorating vision

If this happens, don’t assume it will get better over time. That’s why it’s called “deteriorating.” Talk to your optician about it and get the help you need.

Raphael Opticians is your top source for custom, high-quality eyeglasses

Even with prescription eyeglasses, you still get to choose the shape of the lens, the frame design, the type of material used, and more. At Raphael Opticians, we can make custom eyeglasses for any prescription.

Made from durable materials

We’ve been around since the time corrective lenses were made from glass. Now we use a special blend of polymers to make your prescription glasses. The result is a durable, scratch-resistant pair of glasses made just for you.

Choose from a wide selection of frames


Find the perfect frame that suits your face shape and is 100% comfortable to wear. We’ll then make precise adjustments to ensure an exact fit. In terms of designer eyeglasses, we carry a lineup of well-known brands such as Max Maara, Dolabany, Koali Morel, Silhouette, and more.
