With so many options for prescription eyewear on the market today, it’s only natural for people to have questions about the type of eyeglasses they should choose. These FAQs from our team at Lisa M. McDevitt, O.D. in Reading provide the answers you need to make smart eyewear decisions.
Factors like appearance and lifestyle come into play when choosing eyeglass frames. If you want your eyeglasses to enhance your appearance, look for frames that complement the shape of your face, skin tone, and color of your hair and eyes. Eyeglass frames should also suit your lifestyle for optimal use over the years. Designer frames are more costly but are of higher quality, giving you more for your investment.
Changes in your vision may require that you get new eyeglasses to correct your sight properly. Our optometrist in Reading will inform you of any changes in your prescription during your annual eye exam. If your designer frames are in good shape, you may prefer to change your lenses to match your new prescription and keep your frames to save on costs.
Photochromic lenses are clear lenses that darken when exposed to sunlight, enabling your prescription eyewear to double as sunglasses when outdoors. The lenses become clear again once you’re out of the sun. Photochromic lenses may be a practical buy if you spend a lot of time outdoors.
Invest in quality frames and lenses that resist wear and tear and are suited to your lifestyle. Durable frames with a scratch-resistant coating will last longer for people who live an active lifestyle. Always store your eyeglasses in a safe location when not in use and follow our optometrist’s instructions for proper maintenance and care.
