Eyeglasses FAQs

How do I find eyeglasses that look great on my face?

When trying on glasses at the eye doctor’s office, it can be difficult to tell exactly what the frames look like because you cannot see without prescription lenses. To help make the best choice for your eyeglasses, it is essential to know what face shape you have. Some face shapes look best with a specific type of frame. After establishing what frame types fit your face best, it is time to decide what colors or patterns suit you best. Doing this ahead of time will help you make a confident decision.

Is there a way to reduce glare when wearing eyeglasses?

If the annoying glare in photos bothers you with your current eyeglasses, you should inquire about an anti-reflective coating for your lenses. With this technology, others can see your eyes more clearly, and you can see better with less glare.

Are all eyeglasses the same size?

For years, eyeglass brands sold eyewear as unisex. The gender-neutral frames were significant for many people, but those with larger heads were often uncomfortable. As a result, eyewear brands now offer many gender-specific frames to fit people more comfortably. In addition, high-quality eyewear brands often offer more than one size in a frame to ensure wearers are comfortable while wearing their glasses.

How often should new glasses be ordered?

If you wear eyeglasses currently, you should get new glasses each time your prescription changes. To make sure you don't miss any changes in your eyesight, it is vital to have an eye exam with an eye doctor every two years, or sometimes once per year. If you like your frames and your prescription has changed, you can ask for new lenses placed in your current frames.
