It is impossible to give universal advice on choosing the perfect frames and lenses. But there is one golden rule: when choosing frames you should consider not only their appearance but also discuss the following questions with a specialist (optometrist): Where and how, mostly, are you going to use your glasses? What are your habits? Do you plan to wear your glasses while playing sports, for example? Eyeglass lenses have different optical powers, which are expressed in dioptres. The optical power is determined by fitting glasses. Size of the frame - the larger the frame the more aberration (distortion) may be at the edges of the lens.

What frame fits on the lens?

Metal and plastic frames are equally suitable. In particular, active activities such as riding a motorcycle, running or playing ball require curved frames to protect the eyes from wind, insects, debris, etc.

How do you know if eyeglass lenses aren't right?

You can tell if lenses are not suitable by certain signs. It is important to understand that there is an adjustment period for any optics. Symptoms of improperly fitting glasses are as follows: headache; dizziness; a feeling of sand, increased tearfulness of the eyes; high fatigue of the organs of vision.

Why do my eyes hurt when wearing new glasses?

Eye muscles learn to compensate for changing visual demands. Because these muscles and focusing systems suddenly have to work differently, you may develop headaches, dizziness, or just a feeling that something is wrong with your eyes. (This also applies to contact lenses).

Which glass or plastic eyeglass lenses are better?

Glass makes it difficult to make a progressive or aspherical lens. Also, glass lenses do not fit rimless frames. Plastic lenses are twice as light as glass lenses, so glasses with them are more comfortable to wear for a long time, and plastic lenses are much less traumatic than glass lenses. Firstly, plastic itself is more resistant to breakage, and secondly, its splinters are not as sharp and dangerous.

Which lenses for glasses are more expensive?

The thinner and stronger the lenses, the more expensive they are. Lenses made of photochromic, polarizing or sunglasses are more expensive than colorless (clear) lenses. Lenses can be stock or prescription lenses. Stock lenses are cheaper - they are ready-made, in stock, and can be quickly fitted to eyeglasses.

Just overall great experience from eye exam to selecting and ordering frames. My optometrist was clearly passionate and knowledgeable about her work. I felt I was receiving a genuinely good eye exam and not some "doc in a box" routine. The opticians were helpful and friendly facilitators rather than pushy sales people trying to score a sale. There was a great selection of stylish, quality frames. No need to fool with insurance; my exam and frames (with single visions lens) were well under $200. I highly recommend Warby Parker for your one stop shop for an eye exam and frames.

READ THIS I just found out I need glasses. I consider myself a very fashion forward person and am well off. I started my search for the "perfect" frame (or 2 or 3). I went to all the so called high end boutiques, thinking I would find a great frame for my face. Instead I encountered opticians that thought they were above approach, snooty and downright rude. I was dressed somewhat shabbily, but you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, right. It was obvious that all these places were judging me by my appearance. Too bad for them. I happened to stop in at SOLOMON OPTICAL because I had heard great things about them. I was SOOO happy I had to share my good fortune. Maggie & Barb were so helpful I ended up purchasing 3 pairs of glasses from them. I only needed one. My husband is so happy with all my new glasses. He says it's like he's with a new woman every time I switch frames, but you don't need to know the details of that. Ha ha. If I had judged Solomon optical by the shops "eclectic" interior I probably would have come in anyway, just out of curiosity. I am glad I stopped by. I found out they also have a Doctor who can do my exam next year. One stop shopping and a jewel in the rough. Don't judge this book by it's cover. I couldn't be happier and have already referred 2 of my dear friends in to see them.

The clinic was great! Small town feels which was excellent. I was very anxious to get my vision tested as I hadn’t since grade school but the Dr walked me through everything and made me feel super comfortable! I have excellent vision but was educated that you should go in for your actual eyes health as well! Great learning opportunity. Good people.
