Glasses Q & A

What are the signs I need glasses?

Blurry vision is a common sign that you need glasses. For example, you may find that you have to hold your phone or book closer or further from your face to see it clearly, or you might not be able to read street signs until you’re very close to them. You may also experience:

  • Headaches
  • Eye strain
  • Squinting

Signs that your child might need glasses include changes in their performance and behavior at school. You might notice them squinting or sitting closer to the television, and they may also complain of headaches.

How often should I get new eyeglasses?

Your prescription for eyeglasses is valid for a year. You should have an annual exam to make sure that your prescription is up-to-date and get new glasses if your prescription changes.

However, you don’t need to limit yourself. If you wear glasses all day every day, you may want to have several pairs to complement different outfits or looks. You may also want to consider prescription sunglasses or sports eyeglasses.

What types of lenses are available?

Bridge Opticians offers a wide range of lenses for eyeglasses. Depending on the strength of your prescription and other factors, you may want to consider:

  • Aspheric lenses
  • High-index lenses
  • Wavefront technology lenses
  • Polycarbonate
  • Photochromic lenses
  • Polarized lenses

The opticians can also provide advice on lens coatings, including anti-reflective, scratch-resistant, and ultraviolet (UV) treatments to protect your glasses and your eyes.

What should I consider when choosing frames?

There are many factors to consider when you’re choosing new glasses. For example, a strong prescription often leads to thick lenses, but the right type of frames can disguise their thickness.

Additionally, your facial shape and coloring can influence your choice. For example, if you have a round face you may look better in a square or rectangular frame that’s wider than your face. However, if you have a square face, you may look better in oval frames that soften the angularity of your features.

The team at Bridge Opticians can answer any questions you have about different lens types and coating options and help you select flattering frames.
