What are the signs I need glasses?
As an adult, one of the first signs that you need corrective eyeglasses is frequent headaches. You might also find that you’re squinting at your computer screen or holding your phone close to your face or at arm’s length. Some of the other warning signs that you need glasses or a stronger vision prescription include:
- Eye strain or fatigue
- Blurred or wavy vision
- Trouble seeing at night
- Trouble adjusting from light to dark
If your child needs glasses, they also might complain of headaches or rub their eyes a lot. You might notice them squinting or closing one eye when they’re reading, using a tablet or computer, or watching television. They might start to have trouble at school both in terms of their behavior and their academic performance.
How often do I need new glasses?
You can get new glasses as often as you like. When Dr. Gundersheimer writes a prescription for eyeglasses, it’s good for a year. You can get new frames and lenses as frequently as you like while your prescription is valid. After a year, if you want new glasses, you’ll need to have another eye exam.
As an adult, you should have an eye exam at least every two years. If you have a strong prescription or are at risk of other eye diseases, Dr. Gundersheimer may suggest you have more frequent exams.
Children should have their eyes checked every two years as well unless they’re already wearing corrective lenses. Once your child gets their first pair of glasses, they should have an eye exam every year.
What do I need to consider when choosing frames?
When you choose frames, you want to select a pair that suits the shape of your face and your skin and hair color. Dr. Gundersheimer offers an extensive selection of budget-friendly and designer frames for men, women, and children. He and his team have many years of experience in helping you choose attractive frames that fit in your budget.
In addition to glasses for daily wear, Dr. Gundersheimer offers sports frames, safety glasses, and sunglasses, so you can see clearly no matter what you’re doing.
