Eyeglasses

If you think you need eyeglasses:

  • See an ophthalmologist to determine whether you need eyeglasses and to get a prescription
  • Ask an optician which frames are compatible with your prescription
  • Get lenses which provide UV protection (from ultraviolet rays)
  • Don’t feel pressured to get scratch-proof or tinted lenses unless you really want them

After getting eyeglasses:

If the glasses don’t seem to be working for you:

  • Take the glasses back to the store you got them from

If you’re still not satisfied:

  • Take the glasses and the prescription to a different store and ask them to check the glasses
    Most stores will check them for free

If you’re still not satisfied:

  • Take the glasses back to your doctor

Regularly:

  • Have your eyeglasses checked and adjusted

To reduce the risk of getting cataracts:

  • Wear sunglasses when outside ensure they protect against UV rays
