Eyeglasses Q & A

How Do I Know if I Need Eyeglasses?

Eyeglasses can be prescribed for a variety of conditions.  Blurry vision, poor distance vision, or seeing double are all easy ways to signal the need for glasses.  However, there are other common symptoms that your eyes are working too hard to help you see.  If you are experiencing chronic headaches or eye fatigue, if it is difficult to see at night, or you see halos around lights, you may need eyeglasses to reduce strain on your eyes.

How are Eyeglasses Prescribed?

A comprehensive eye examination is in order for those who suspect they need eyeglasses.  In addition to visual tests to determine the severity of the impairment and color blindness tests, Dr. Chang also evaluates your overall eye health, tests your eye movement and depth perception, and evaluates your prescription through retinoscopy and refraction. Dr. Chang will use phoropters to switch between lenses to determine the correct lens prescription to correct your vision.  These painless tests will yield a precise prescription for your eyeglasses.

How do I choose the Best Eyeglasses for Me?

Eyeglasses are the most conspicuous way to correct your vision.  Because they are the first thing a person sees on your face, it is important to pick a frame that is right for you based on four factors - comfort, style, safety, and vision.  In order to pick frames that are right for your lifestyle, you will need to try several styles on and think about when you will be using your glasses. Additionally, you will need to decide on the lens material and any coatings that you may want to include on your lenses such as UV protection, anti-scratch protection, and anti-glare protection.  Dr. Chang and her staff can assist you in selecting the right combination of lenses and frames for you to ensure you are satisfied with your purchase.
