How To Buy Your Eyewear
Buying Eyewear: What with the rising pollution levels, television watching, computer using etc. Our eyes bear more than we really give it credit for. As a result, most of us tend to take the process of selecting the right pair of glasses for our eyes rather too lightly. True, buying eyeglasses isn’t exactly rocket science, but it too deserves optimum attention, after all it helps us protect and heal one of the most valuable parts of our body. Read on to find out the right way to pick the correct pair of specs for yourself.
First step, get your prescription and PD (pupillary distance) measurements. If you have recently got your eye examined, ask your doctor to send you the prescription. Your PD measurements should be available from the optical shop you bought your last glasses from. If you need a new prescription, visit an ophthalmologist. To save time, ask him to measure your PD during the examination.
Buying your eyeglass frames (your next step) can be a lot of fun. Take someone along for suggestions, and take time to decide which frame you like. Also take into account practical issues, a rimless frame might be classy but your regular use might need something slightly sturdier. Remember to keep checking the mirror to ensure what you like, suits you as well.
Now you need to add lenses to the frame you have chosen for yourself. While doing this, keep in mind your specific needs and your lifestyle. Take into account your budget. Your pocket might allow a glass lens, but would that require too much of maintenance for your comfort? Take the optical store’s advice.
When all that is over get ready to check out. Now that your purchase is over, a specialist will check your order to see if all is well. When assured, make your payment and get ready to gain a new perspective of the world.
