If you have refractive errors in your vision, your eye doctor may recommend prescription eyeglasses to improve your vision. The right pair of glasses will enhance your visual clarity so you can enjoy optimal sight. At Keelan Eye Care in Brick, NJ, we carry an extensive inventory of quality eyeglasses for children, teens, and adults. The following FAQs provide the answers you need to make wise decisions concerning the eyeglasses you buy.
If I Have Good Vision, Do I Really Need an Annual Eye Exam?
During an annual eye exam, our optometrist will check both your eye health and vision. Eye health testing may uncover early warning signs of eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, or even cataracts. Some eye diseases don’t have symptoms in the early stages, making them difficult to detect without an eye exam. Early detection and treatment of eye diseases can help preserve your sight.
What Kind of Glasses Should I Choose?
When selecting new eyeglasses, take into consideration your lifestyle, personal preference, and budget. If you live an active lifestyle, choose a pair of frames and lenses that are flexible and strong, so that they last a long time. If you need glasses for the office, invest in a stylish pair that enhances both your vision and business appearance. At Keelan Eye Care, we can help you select an attractive, functional pair of glasses that won't break your budget.
Do All Frames Match with All Prescriptions?
Some frames are more suited to certain prescriptions than others. For multifocal lenses, for example bifocals, trifocals, and progressive lenses, you’ll need a frame that’s big enough to support these corrective fields. Our Brick, NJ, eye doctor can help you select the appropriate frames that will fit your prescription.
Which Lenses Are Best for Me?
Some plastic lenses may be better suited to your needs when it comes to cost, durability, and longevity. If cost is an issue, CR-39 plastic is an affordable option. For durability, you may prefer polycarbonate lenses, especially for children, as they’re more shatter resistant. Trivex lenses are lightweight and offer less distortion. Anti-reflective lenses will reduce glare from car lights at night and your computer screen. Our Keelan Eye Care specialist can explain all your lens options and help you select the one that’s best suited to your needs.
