Why are Glasses Important?

Not all of us have 20/20 vision, but thankfully, glasses are a simple solution to help combat blurry vision.

There are several reasons you might need to wear glasses for school, work, or just everyday wear. While glasses are key to helping many people see their best, they also must fit your personality and lifestyle. Luckily, glasses come in all shapes, sizes, and colors and offer a variety of features, allowing you to find the frames that best meet your needs.

Why Might I Need to Wear Glasses?

  • Poor Vision: You may not realize how much you need glasses until you receive your first pair and everything suddenly looks clearer! Poor vision can make daily tasks difficult and put extra strain on your eyes. A pair of glasses with even a slight prescription can make a huge difference when performing day-to-day tasks. Also, with up to 75% of school screenings missing vision problems, it's important to stay on top of your child's eye health. In some cases, children as young as one or two require glasses. Glasses can provide your child with the vision correction necessary to learn in school without the added barrier of blurry vision.
  • Eye Strain: Even if you don't need prescription vision correction, glasses can help you see your best. Computer or reading glasses can help combat digital eye strain if you work in front of a screen most days or find yourself straining to read.
  • Eye Irritation: Contacts may be your go-to on most days, but if you wake up with irritated eyes, it may be best to put on your glasses instead. If you're struggling with allergy eyes, eye styes, pink eye, or generally irritated eyes, the safest option may be to temporarily stop wearing your contact lenses until the issue is cleared up (visit your eye care professional to evaluate). Having a pair of glasses handy can be a great way to ensure your productivity is not heavily impacted by these eye irritations.
  • Special Circumstances: In some instances, contacts may not be the best option for your prescription, and glasses allow you to have the sharpest and most consistent vision correction. Even if you don't have a prescription, blue light filtering glasses might allow additional comfort if you are in front of screens for most of the day. Additionally, safety glasses or goggles are required for some jobs. For information regarding the best eyewear option for you and your prescription, refer to your eye doctor's recommendations during your next eye exam.

Do I Need to Wear Sunglasses?

Wearing a quality pair of sunglasses is an easy way to help maintain your eye health. Not only are sunglasses an exciting accessory that lets your personality shine, but their lenses also help shield your eyes from extended exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays in a variety of weather conditions.

Your eyes need protection from the sun's UV rays all year round. Whether you're venturing outdoors during sunny summer days or skiing during a snowy winter day, sunglasses help keep your eyes comfortable and healthy.

When it's time to pick a pair, make sure to choose sunglasses with 100% UVA and UVB protection. Keep in mind that UVA and UVB coatings can wear off over time, so make sure you invest in a new pair of sunglasses if you notice your lenses have seen better days.

What are the Risks of Not Wearing Sunglasses?

More than Vision Clarity

Gone are the days when glasses were purely functional. Today, they're a fun tool for expressing your personality and unique style. Whether you're drawn to classic styles, bold statement frames, or something in between, there's a perfect match out there just for you.

Glasses let you express your style based on face shape, color, frame shape, and favorite activities. Feeling lost on the many options out there? Try on hundreds of eyeglass frames virtually on Eyeconic. From casual, to luxury, to sporty, and more – glasses not only boost your vision, but also show your personality.

Eyewear is an important part of day-to-day life, whether you're correcting your vision with prescription glasses or protecting your eyes from the elements with a pair of polarized sunglasses. Let your personal style shine bright with your next pair of glasses as you take this proactive step to protect your vision.
