What are glasses?

Glasses are a popular option for prescription eyewear. They sharpen your vision, and you can remove them very easily at any time. Unlike contact lenses, another popular option, glasses allow you to choose a pair that lets you express your personality and fashion sense. They’re also far less likely to compromise the health of your eyes because they are easy to use and never touch the surfaces of your eyes. 

At Primary Eyecare Associates, an optometrist tests your vision and your eye health before recommending glasses as a way to improve your vision. They find or update your prescription so you can be sure that your new pair improves your vision perfectly. 

If your prescription is mild enough that you don’t always need to wear glasses or you need for a sole purpose, such as seeing close up, you can explore options for reading glasses, sunglasses, blue light glasses for computer use, and more. 

When should I consider getting glasses?

Prescription glasses can correct many different vision problems ranging from mild to severe in both children and adults. Primary Eyecare Associates may encourage you to consider glasses if you have:

  • Nearsightedness (myopia)
  • Farsightedness (hyperopia)
  • A decline in your vision with age (presbyopia)
  • Astigmatism

Bifocal or multifocal lenses can correct two or more of these refractive errors at once. 

During a comprehensive eye exam at Primary Eyecare Associates, an important part is the visual acuity test to check the clarity of your eyesight at various distances. Even if you haven’t noticed a decline in your vision, it might become apparent during a test. Your optometrist tells you if you need glasses for the first time or a prescription update. The exam also screens for eye diseases like glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy, of which treatment is available should you need it.

Beyond your annual exam, you should book an eye exam for glasses if you experience:

  • Frequent headaches
  • Double vision
  • Blurriness
  • Persistent eye tiredness or strain
  • Trouble with night vision

After finding your prescription, your optometrist tells you what it means and which type of lenses will best improve your vision.
