Glasses Q & A

How often do I need new glasses?

If you wear glasses with corrective lenses, your prescription is valid for a year. You should have an annual eye exam to ensure your glasses are effectively correcting your vision and get new glasses when your prescription changes. If you don’t already wear glasses, you should have your eyes examined every two years to monitor their health and to check for changes in your vision.

However, as long as your prescription is up-to-date, you can get new glasses as often as you like. Maybe you want to have a spare pair of eyeglasses in case you lose or break a pair, or perhaps you’d like to have several pairs of glasses to complement different looks. 

What are the signs that I need new glasses?

Frequent headaches are a common early warning sign of needing glasses or a new prescription. You might also have eye strain or rub your eyes a lot. Other signs that you need glasses include:

  • Squinting
  • Blurred vision
  • Seeing halos around lights
  • Sitting closer to the television 
  • Holding books or your phone closer to your face or at arm’s length
  • Decreased night vision

If you notice any of these symptoms, make an appointment at Envision Eyecare for a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Fuzyalov checks your eyes for signs of eye diseases that can interfere with clear vision, and he also measures your visual acuity. 

What do I need to consider when choosing new glasses?

When you choose new glasses, you need to consider your prescription strength, types of lenses, and what frames flatter your features and fit into your budget. 

Envision Eyecare carries a wide range of beautiful frames at every price point. In addition to affordable frames, they also carry brands including:

  • Gucci®
  • Versace®
  • Kate Spade New York®
  • Burberry® 
  • Hugo Boss
  • Jimmy Choo™
  • Prada
  • Coach®
  • Tory Burch®
  • Charriol
  • Ray-Ban®
  • Carrera
  • Cole Haan®
  • Calvin Klein®
  • bebe® 

When you choose frames, the staff at Envision Eyecare can help you select frames that suit your face shape and coloring. For example, if you have a square face, you might find that narrow frames that are wider than they are deep will soften the lines of your face. 

You also need to consider your lenses. Envision Eyecare offers conventional lenses as well as lightweight polycarbonate glasses, multifocals, and progressive lenses. They also provide tinted lenses, if you’re looking for prescription sunglasses.
