If you’ve never worn glasses before, they can be intimidating. You might be unsure where to even begin with them. At Orange County Vision Center, serving Garden Grove, CA, and Los Angeles, CA, our team is here to help you with your optometry needs. If you think you might need glasses, here are some things to know.
Uses for Eyeglasses
Eyeglasses are used as a vision correction tool. Among the most common reasons for needing glasses are nearsightedness and farsightedness, though they may be used to correct other vision issues as well. Glasses use prescription lenses to counteract the blurred vision that a misshapen cornea causes. When you’re wearing them, they temporarily give you better vision as long as you’re looking through the lenses.
An optometrist on our optometry will help determine if you need glasses. Sometimes you might notice that your vision is getting blurry, but this is not always the case. This is why it can be so important to stay on top of your eye doctor appointments. During your appointment, an eye doctor on our team will test your vision and examine your eyes. If we determine you need glasses, we will help you figure out the necessary prescription for your particular situation. If you put off going to the eye doctor, you might end up dealing with blurry vision and eye strain that could easily be helped with glasses.
Your Glasses Needs May Change
The first pair of glasses you get will likely not be your last. Your eyes will likely continue to change throughout your lifetime. This is especially true if you start wearing glasses as a child but even adults may find that they need stronger prescription lenses over time. An optometrist on our optometry team will adjust your prescription during your eye exams each year in order to keep you seeing clearly.
You Can Choose Your Frames
Eyeglasses can be a stylish addition to your wardrobe. Once you get your prescription, an optometrist can help you find the right frames for your style and budget. Take some time to try on different frames and find ones that work well for you. This can make wearing glasses more enjoyable and help you get used to them much faster than you would if you were reluctant to wear them.
