How to Choose
As you know, it’s not always easy to choose your eyeglasses. A number of criteria come into play.
To help you, here are some brief rules for choosing your eyeglasses properly.
Before choosing corrective eyeglasses, you’ll have to have an eye exam. Jot down your concerns and visual symptoms, such as migraines, whether you see better near or far, whether or not your vision is blurred and at what time of the day, and whether you’re sensitive to the sun. All these visual symptoms should be taken into consideration when you meet with your optometrist.
Consult an optometrist, but which one?
Do business with someone you’re confident with, and a recognized professional. At Greiche & Scaff, we build on customer loyalty. Returning to the same optometrist (and bringing your family along) has its advantages. He or she will know your file and medical history and be there to listen to—and answer—all your eye health questions. Once your eye exam is complete, the optometrist will give you a prescription: This is an important element in choosing your eyeglasses.
Choose your eyeglasses to be a reflection of you
Because, after all, they’ll be a part of you for at least a year, your eyeglasses must be adapted to both your background and your needs.
A number of elements should be taken into account when choosing your glasses:
- Your lifestyle: Your requirements for work, leisure and sport
- The frames: The materials, the forms and the look
- The lenses: The materials, the treatments and the tints, all adapted to the prescription
- Your budget: Depending on your needs and means
- Your prescription: The frame must be able to accommodate the prescription for lenses.
