There’s more to choosing a new pair of glasses than meets the eye. The main purpose of prescription eyeglasses is to improve the quality of your sight. At the same time, you want glasses that are attractive, long-lasting and perfectly suited to your lifestyle, all at a reasonable cost. At Athens Family Vision Clinic in Athens, GA, we can make these wishes a reality. We carry an extensive lineup of prescription eyewear to suit all tastes, personalities, budgets and lifestyles to make it easy to find eyeglasses perfectly suited for you.
The Importance of Eye Exams in Getting Eyeglasses
The first step to choosing prescription eyeglasses is getting an accurate prescription. This is done through an eye exam. Our Athens, GA, eye doctor offers comprehensive eye exams to test your visual clarity, eye focus, and eye pairing, so you can obtain glasses that provide you with optimal sight. Our optometrist will also test your eye health to uncover signs of hidden eye conditions or diseases that can pose a risk to your vision. Eye exams are an important part of your vision care needs.
Choosing Prescription Eyewear
Some of the factors to consider when choosing prescription eyeglasses are appearance, function, comfort, lifestyle, and cost.
Appearance is important, especially if you’ll be wearing your glasses all the time. To find glasses that look good on you, choose frames that complement the shape of your face, skin tone, and the color of your hair and eyes. By taking time to try on different styles and designs, you’ll have a better idea of what appeals to you, suits your personality, and brings out the best in your facial features.
Your new eyewear should also suit your lifestyle. If you’re the sporty, active type, choose sturdy frames that can withstand outdoor use and lenses suited to an outdoor lifestyle. Photo chromic lenses, for example, automatically darken in the sunlight so your prescription eyewear can double as sunglasses. If your glasses will be used mostly for working in an office, choose frames with a classy, professional look.
Your new glasses should fit comfortably, so you’ll be more inclined to use them. Our Athens optometrist can help you choose the best lenses for your prescription and ensure they’re properly aligned to provide you with optimal sight. We can also adapt your lenses for computer work by applying a special coating to filter out blue light or reduce glare.
At Athens Family Vision Clinic, we offer quality name-brand eyewear at affordable costs, putting beautiful prescription glasses well within your budget.
