Less than half the population is blessed with perfect vision, meaning that the majority of us need some type of assistance to help us see perfectly. This can mean reading glasses, contact lenses, or strong prescription eyeglasses. But wherever you tend to be on the spectrum of sight, there are things to keep in mind when it comes to selecting your eyeglasses that will help you feel more comfortable and confident when wearing them for the long term. Life is best lived when you can see everything clearly, and that means that it is important for you to get your eyes checked on a regular basis, and get the basic facts for choosing or selecting the methods you will use to ensure you are able to see. Some folks work best with contact lenses, while others prefer to have glasses that they can easily take on and off their face when necessary. Either way, taking the time to find out what best compliments your intended look as well as your lifestyle and personality will ensure that you are going to find the best long term solution for your sight.
First, take the time to choose carefully between contact lenses and prescription eyeglasses. H. Rubin Opticians has a great series of questions they will ask you about your lifestyle and intended use either product to help you determine which on is right for you. Will you be able to take out the contact lenses, store them properly and clean them appropriately before putting them back in daily? Will you be able to get back into the store to have your glasses adjusted so that they properly fit your face and don’t slide around or fall off if you look down at the ground? Will you intend to sleep in your contacts because it will be difficult to remember to take them out? These are some of the great questions they will ask you to help you determine which solution is right for you.
Second, you need to remember that your prescription can change, and every time it changes you will need to purchase a new set of prescription eyeglasses. This can become somewhat expensive, but depending on the type of contacts that are recommended for you, it may not be more expensive than contact lenses. Getting the facts on what your long term spending plans are for the glasses will help you make the best decision for your lifestyle and budget.
Lastly, it is important to remember that if you wear sunglasses on a regular basis, this will have to be factored in when purchasing prescription eyeglasses. As you will take the glasses off to wear sunglasses, you may also want to consider and budget for the purchase of a prescription sunglass pair, as you will need to have both pairs in order to see inside as well as see outside on a sunny day. This may not be a great solution if you are afraid of losing one pair, and you may want to consider contact lenses instead so that you can take your sunglasses on and off and still be able to see the world clearly.
