New Technology: OptikamPad

Untitled design-photoaidcom-cropped


The OptikamPad is an innovative tool used by Eye Care Professionals to give you a specialized shopping experience for each stage of choosing glasses. Optikam is a measurement device that takes your eyewear measurements with minimal human-to-human contact. This technology provides personalized “as-worn” measurements that take into account the frame fit and possible nose pad adjustments. Optikam is perfect for those who cannot see themselves clearly in a mirror without their prescription. You can also explore how the frame will look on your face and demo different lens options with side by side image comparisons.

Full Surfacing Lab In-House

Gulf Coast Vision Center is unique in that we have a full surfacing lab in-house at our Nine Mile location. This means we are able to make your glasses right in our office. Having an in-house lab can help reduce prescription errors and prevent potential damage to lenses or frames from shipping. This same day service is available for certain prescriptions and lens types. Depending on lens options, some lenses may not be able to be cut in-house. 


  • BluTech Blue Light Protection reduces your exposure to artificial blue light from screens and energy-efficient lighting. Blue light disrupts your biological clock and causes digital eye strain which can negatively impact sleep, health and productivity. 
  • Polarized Lenses are the lens of choice for your sunglasses. The polarization protects your eyes from the glare caused by the sun on any surface such as water, sand, snow and cars. Polarized lenses are good for any outdoor activities like fishing, skiing and boating.
  • Ultraviolet Protection applied to lenses absorbs harmful ultraviolet light, which may help in preventing cataracts. The sun is the primary source of ultraviolet rays, but we can also be exposed through fluorescent lighting and computers. 
  • Polycarbonate Lenses are fantastic for children and adults with an active lifestyle. It is the most impact-resistant lens available, lighter than plastic and has built-in ultraviolet protection. 
  • Anti-Reflective Coating reduces glare and increases contrast, which also enhances visual acuity. Our eyes can feel strained and tired because of glare and ghost images from streetlights, headlights, fluorescent lights, and computer monitors. 
  • Transition Lenses change tint that will lighten or darken according to the amount of UV exposure. The lens darkens in the sunlight and lightens when indoors or dimly lit places.
  • High Index Lenses are thinner and lighter weight material helping high prescriptions appear less thick and more cosmetically attractive. 
  • Scratch Resistant Coating applies a protective layer on your lenses that reduces scratching by at least 80% more than conventional plastic lenses
