About Me
Planning for a Successful School Year

When I was a kid, the beginning of each school year was an exciting time for me. Because I didn’t have any brothers or sisters to spend time with at home, I looked forward to seeing, talking with, and playing with my friends at school. And, I was also a book worm. I loved to read all sorts of literature. Do you have kids that you are getting ready to send back to school? The end of summer is always a great time to take your kids to your trusted optician in order for them to have their eyes examined. Because children’s eyes are constantly changing, kids need to visit an eye doctor on a regular basis. On this blog, you will discover the latest trends in kids’ eyewear. Enjoy!


Considerations For Choosing The Right Prescription Glasses

If you have had your eye exam and it's been determined that you need prescription glasses, then you want to take sure you choose the right pair. While you always want to go with the best pair, you especially want to put a good deal of thought into choosing your glasses if you are going to need to wear them often. This article will help you choose prescription glasses you will be happy with.

Choose the right frames

The first thing you need to do is decide which frames are right for you. Keep in mind that just because you like a particular design, doesn't mean it's going to be the right choice for you. When you put the frames on your face, look around and make sure it doesn't feel as if too much of your vision is blocked from parts of the frames. Also, you should make sure the frames don't come down too far on your cheeks causing them to be too uncomfortable, or that they don't weigh too heavy on your ears.

Choose between clear or tinted lenses

You will also need to determine whether clear lenses will work the best for you, or whether you would rather have tinted lenses. You can purchase your glasses with a tinting that lightens up when you are inside and darkens when you are outside in the bright daylight.

Choose from various options

Anti-glare: When you order your glasses, you will also have different options to choose from when it comes to the lenses. You should really go with the anti-glare option. If you don't choose to have anti-glare added to your glasses, they will have a bad glare from the lights at night and from certain lights during the daytime. Also, the anti-glare makes it easier for others to see your eyes through the lenses.

Scratch resistance: Scratch resistance is another option you should really consider. If you are going to go with glass lenses, then you won't have to worry about having a scratch resistant coating added, since the glass won't scratch. However, plastic lenses are more prone to scratching and adding this feature will help you to keep your glasses in good shape longer.

Now that you have a better understanding of what to consider when you are choosing your glasses, you'll be happier when you receive them. Wearing a pair of excellent glasses can make all the difference to your corrective eyewear experience.
