Eye Glasses Q&A
How often should I get new eyeglasses?
You can get new eyeglasses as often as you like. It’s common to get new glasses every two years, even if your prescription doesn’t change. Emerald Eye Center Inc. encourages you to have your vision tested at least every two years. If your prescription changes, you can choose new frames to go with your new prescription.
What are my options for lenses?
Emerald Eye Center Inc. offers a variety of lenses that are suitable for different prescription strengths. Most lenses for eyeglasses are made from shatter-resistant plastic and have a UV coating to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.
Emerald Eye Center Inc. also offers high index lenses. High index lenses are made from ultra-light materials and are an attractive option if you have a high prescription and want to avoid the “coke bottle” look that often develops with high prescription lenses.
If you are developing presbyopia — an age-related condition that makes it difficult for you to see objects that are close to you — you may benefit from bifocal, multifocal, or progressive lenses. Progressive lenses improve both near and farsightedness but don’t have the tell-tale line associated with bifocals.
Emerald Eye Center Inc. also provides tinted lenses and Transitions® lenses to help you see with comfort whether you’re inside or outdoors. They also offer safety lenses for athletes, children, and people who need them for work.
How do I know which frame design is best for me?
Your Emerald Eye Center provider can help you choose frames that look great and will support your prescription lenses. You can choose from a wide variety of designs; Emerald Eye Center Inc. features products from:
- Carolina Herrera
- Emporio Armani
- Gios Italia
- Michael Atlan (French Vintage Designs)
Your provider discusses your needs and personal style with you and provides advice on what style is best for your prescription. For example, if you have a high prescription for nearsightedness, you can reduce thickness by choosing small rounded frames. You may also be better off choosing plastic frames that fully encompass your lenses to cover any thick edges.
