How to Start Looking for Eyeglasses

We recommend to begin with an eye exam when shopping for glasses. Our optometrists will measure your eyes, check your vision, and discuss any specific requirements you may have. During your appointment, we can also suggest frames that will suit your vision, facial shape, and lifestyle. More importantly, your prescription will also be determined at this time. Once you know your prescription, you can start looking for the right pair of glasses to help your vision.

Afterward, you can decide on a style of frames that would best suit your personality. Think about the color, shape, and material of the frames. Perhaps you prefer bold colors or something more subdued to fit your style. Along with that, maybe you want a pair that has plastic or metal frames. These all items to be mindful of when selecting your frames.

Specific Items to Consider

Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, it's important to determine if your eyeglasses provide sufficient protection from the sun. Look for lenses that are equipped with UV protection and glare-resistant coatings to reduce eyestrain. In addition, always be sure to ask questions about materials and warranties as well. Our optometrists will provide helpful advice on glasses that have the frame and lenses that you want while also looking and function well.
