If you have noticed your vision worsening, it might be time to consider glasses. While this might be an intimidating development, getting glasses is actually a simple process. Dr. Krywko and our team at Eyes on Hayden in Scottsdale are here to help every step of the way.
What Do Eyeglasses Do?
Eyeglasses are a form of vision correction that uses prescription lenses to improve your vision. An eye doctor will examine your eyes, as well as your vision, and use the results to determine your prescription needs. Sometimes, you will have different prescriptions in each eye, which can easily be addressed. Among the reasons why you might get glasses are nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Signs You May Need Glasses
If your vision has gradually changed over time, you likely need to get glasses. However, it can sometimes be difficult to tell that the change has happened on your own. Look for signs like squinting to see things in the distance or on a page in front of you. You might feel ongoing eye strain or headaches as well.
While blurred vision is most commonly the result of myopia, other conditions can cause it as well. This is especially true if it comes on suddenly. So make sure to address any vision problems with your optometrist as soon as possible.
To get glasses, you need to have an eye doctor prescribe them. The optometrist will do a full eye exam and vision exam to officially diagnose the problem. This will also allow us to determine exactly how much vision correction you need. From there, you can buy your glasses at the eye doctor’s office.
There are many different types of frames available, including designer frames. So make sure you get the ones that fit your budget and needs. We will fit the glasses to your prescription and you will be able to pick them up within a few days.
