Tips For Buying Glasses: How To Find The Right Sunglasses For You

Two Things Are Important In Buying New Glasses: An Ideal And Comfortable Vision And A Great Look.

Spending a lot of time in choosing new glasses means that they will not only sparkle, but also reflect and become part of your personality. Nowadays, there is no doubt that the lenses for glasses must, on their own, give the user the ideal vision. Your ophthalmologist can help you choose the right frames to provide an ideal fit and customize your lens for your glasses so that they exactly match your needs.

Sometimes there is no alternative but to get a new pair of glasses. Not only because of the changes in your vision, but also because the trends continue to evolve at a steady pace, or because you need a second pair of glasses for specific activities. Or maybe because your glasses are already heavily used. However, given the wide range of options available today, buying frames and lenses for new glasses is no longer an easy task. Nowadays, good ophthalmologists offer their customers an endless variety of different models and features. But anyone who knows what they are looking for, will easily find the perfect pair of glasses.

The Field Of Application Of Your New Glasses

When buying new glasses, a very important criterion to keep in mind is the field of application of the glasses. The criteria can vary greatly from user to user. One of the first questions is: what do I need these glasses for, or do I need them to do what? Someone who works every day in front of the computer will need different glasses than someone who works most of the time outdoors, or someone who needs glasses for sports activities. The more information you give the ophthalmologist-and a good ophthalmologist will always put many questions-the easier the selection process. Compare your experience buying glasses with buying a car, and let the ophthalmologist show you and inform you about the “features” that may be beneficial to you.

State Of The Art Technologies

This is another truth that applies when we buy glasses: the more glasses are personalized to the respective user, the better the results can be obtained in terms of quality of vision, user properties and tolerance of the user, for example, in the case of Multifocal lenses. The concept is similar to that of a tailor made suit, which should be produced with the exact measurements, as opposed to buying a ready suit. It may even happen that a suit is ready, but it is not guaranteed. Modern and innovative technologies such as Individual lens technology for progressive lenses, or ZEISS visual analysis contribute to the personalized creation of your new glasses.

Choosing Your Lenses For Glasses

When you enter an optic it is natural that you want to walk around the store in search of beautiful frames for glasses. However, not all eyeglass lenses are suitable for all types of frames, so it is best to choose your lenses first. If you are looking for a better, relaxed view, it goes without saying that eyeglass lenses represent the most important component of your new glasses. You can only rely entirely on the visual support of your glasses if you choose the right lenses.

In the past, mineral glass was most commonly used in the manufacture of eye lenses, whereas plastic lenses are now becoming increasingly common. This development has some advantages: increased resistance to lens breakage assures a risk of injury. A high quality special plastic and a good coating offer protection against pressure marks and deep scratches. But other aspects play an important role in choosing the perfect lens for glasses: in addition to the normal aspect of diopters, other important factors include the refractive index of the material (important for the thickness of the lens), the aspherical shapes Distortion at the edges of the lens), antireflection and treatment quality and breaking resistance. The coatings or additional lens finishes can further simplify your life with the glasses. Why not try a hydrophobic or antistatic coating, for example?

Our tip: First of all, eye lenses should have a good and efficient anti-glare coating. This is because the reflections caused by glasses have a great distracting effect when exposed to sunlight, when driving at night or when working in front of the computer. In addition, anti-reflective eyeglass lenses make the user almost forget they are wearing glasses.

Maybe you’re thinking of buying tinted or photosensitive glasses . But be careful: there is a big difference in quality with regard to photosensitive lenses. The deciding factor to consider when making a purchase is that the phototropic eye lenses should react as quickly as possible to changing light conditions, returning to the clear state indoors and darkening to a sun-like hue when Exposed to sunlight or bright light. It is also extremely important that lenses provide 100% protection against UVA and UVB radiation.

The Frames Of Spectacles

With regard to frames, the shop clerk can usually pre-select some models suitable for you as he is the one who knows the most about the range of products that he has and can help you to be guided by the range of products and offers. However, remember to express your preferences regarding color, material, and price range from the beginning. Most importantly, your new glasses should fit the shape of your face and also match your chosen glasses.

As a general rule, people with a round face should opt for angled eyeglass frames, while people with an angled face will look better with round frames. People with an oval face are lucky because they can choose both frame formats. People with a triangular or heart-shaped face will certainly be advised to opt for a thin, oval shaped frame.

Our tip: when you choose your frames, go with someone who knows you well. A second or third opinion can help a lot. There are three options for people who can not see without glasses: they can ask the ophthalmologist half-eye glasses or cosmetic glasses, put disposable contact lenses or take a digital photo with the possible new frames, which can then be seen on the computer monitor To assist the decision (i.Terminal).

Another aspect that you should take into consideration when choosing glasses frames is the material used. It is already known that the weight of the glasses plays a preponderant role in their decision. A new frame should be comfortable from the moment you try it. If you have allergies, it is also very important to ask about the makeup of the frames of the glasses.

Additional Assistance After Purchase

After removing your glasses from the optics, take them to your ophthalmologist to find the lenses that fit your face.

Our tip: Check for yourself if the new glasses fit comfortably on your face. They should not cause discomfort in your nose, temples or areas around your ears.

The saying “far from the eyes, far from the heart” does not apply minimally to the ophthalmologist. Sometimes it can be very helpful when clients return to the ophthalmologist one or two weeks after receiving the new glasses to make some adjustments. But a good ophthalmologist will always be happy to assist you whenever you need it.


The Configuration Of Your ZEISS Custom Lenses

Our eyes are the most important organs of our senses. Since each eye is as unique as a fingerprint, a custom analysis performed by an ophthalmologist is recommended.

Only Your Glasses Can Do It!

Contact lenses are a good alternative to glasses, but there are still some vision solutions possible only with good old glasses.
