What are some signs I might need eyeglasses?
Knowing the signs of vision issues can help you decide when it’s time to come in for a professional eye exam and vision screening. Some of the signs you might need eyeglasses include:
- Seeing flashes or floaters
- Seeing halos around bright lights
- Double vision
- Distorted vision
- Need to increase lighting to read
Everyone will occasionally experience some of these symptoms, but when they begin to occur more frequently, it might be time to come in for a vision assessment.
What kinds of vision problems can eyeglasses correct?
Professionally designed lenses can correct numerous vision problems. Some of the most common reasons people wear glasses are to address:
- Nearsightedness: trouble seeing distant objects
- Farsightedness: trouble seeing close-up items
- Presbyopia: changes in near focusing ability
- Astigmatism: abnormal cornea shape that leads to blurred vision
If you have more than one problem with your vision, multifocal lenses offer a great solution. There are even lenses designed primarily for use with computer screens.
How do I know which kind of eyeglass frames are right for me?
Choosing a new set of frames can be intimidating. Never before have there been as many options for the shape, color, and style of eyeglass frames.
When selecting a new set of frames, it helps to consider the shape of your face. People with round faces tend to look best with rectangular or square frames. If your face is more angular or square, oval, or round frames are a good choice.
Oval frames and cat-eye frames look wonderful on diamond-shaped faces, and round shapes or square frames with rounded corners are a good fit for people with heart-shaped faces. A good rule of thumb is to choose frames that are an opposite shape from your facial contouring.
When choosing colors, think about your natural skin tones. Warmer skin tones with bronze, golden, or yellow undertones tend to look good in shades of brown, tortoise, olive green, beige, or gold. Cooler skin tones with undertones of pink look great in blue, purple, mauve, black, or silver eyeglass frames.
