While glasses are a simple addition to your life, they are also a big change for many people. At Orange County Vision Center in Garden Grove, CA, we understand that and are here to help. Here are the answers to some questions we often receive about eyeglasses.
How Do Eyeglasses Work?
The lenses in your eyeglasses are specifically designed to help you see clearly. This prescription will make up for the misshapen cornea that is causing your blurred vision, allowing you to see clearly. However, it is temporary and only works when you’re wearing your glasses.
Will I Be Able to Stop Wearing Glasses?
Once you start wearing glasses, you are likely to need vision correction in the future. This usually means glasses, contact lenses, or a combination of the two. Some people can get away with not wearing their glasses regularly, but it can cause avoidable eye strain and vision difficulty. If you decide you don’t want to wear glasses anymore, you might consider LASIK surgery in the future. This will repair your cornea but is something you’ll need to discuss with your optometry center.
Will I Need a New Prescription In the Future?
Yes. Your eyes will continue to change throughout your life, so you must keep up with your eye exams. That way, our optometrist can adjust your prescription as you need it. Sometimes your eyes will have the same prescription while other times one will need a stronger lens than the other. Children, especially, go through their prescriptions rapidly as their bodies develop. While these changes might be slower for adults, they are still important to watch out for.
Where Do I Buy Glasses?
You can get your glasses right at our optometry center! Once you have your prescription, the staff can help you find the right frames for you. Everybody has different wants and needs when it comes to their particular frames, so take your time to look at all of your options. Once you choose your frames, we will fit them and get your lenses. When the glasses are ready, you can pick them up.
