Tips for Buying the Right Prescription Glasses
May 15, 2020
Many people out there don’t enjoy wearing contacts; for them, prescription glasses are a much more comfortable option. However, it can be hard to find the right pair of glasses if you need a prescription. Here are some tips for buying the right prescription glasses from Glassy Eyewear.
Find Out Your Prescription
The first tip is an obvious one—find out your prescription. Now, it can be difficult to visit an eye doctor at the moment, so your next best option is to use an app at home. This can give you a better idea of what kind of lenses will work best for you.
Choose Based on Face Shape
A common mistake people make is not choosing glasses based on their face shape. So, if you haven’t already, identify your face shape. For example, if you have a rounder face, then search for glasses that are square to balance out your look. By figuring out your face shape, you can then figure out what glasses will look the best on you—it’s all about working with your facial features.
Test Them Out
The next thing you will want to do when you are looking at glasses is to try them on. Lucky for you, Glassy Eyewear offers a free home try-on service. You can select up to five different pairs, see what works best for you, then send them back.
Think About Your Hobbies
In addition, keep your various hobbies in mind. If you are a gamer or spend a lot of time in front of screens that emit blue light, consider purchasing prescription gaming glasses. This way, your glasses can serve multiple purposes by protecting your eyes from both blue light and UV rays and improving your vision.
Find a Pair That Suits Your Style
The last tip for buying the right prescription glasses is to find a pair that fits your personal style. Glassy Eyewear offers a selection of unique eyewear, so there are plenty of options available, including our recent collaboration with Diamond Supply Co.
