Whether you've been wearing eyeglasses most of your life or this is the first time that you've gotten a prescription, it's important that you choose your glasses carefully. One of the things that many people don't realize is that there are all sorts of added features that you can often incorporate into your glasses when you order them. Here's a look at some of the things that you should consider and discuss with your eyeglass provider.
I still remember the day my mom took my family for our annual eye exams and I found out that I needed to start wearing eyeglasses. I really enjoyed picking out my first pair, and they were pink with cartoon characters on them! When I entered high school, my parents let me begin wearing contact lenses. I was afraid to put them in my eyes, but I was brave and did it! I recently began having lens discomfort, and I was really worried I would be told by my eye doctor that I wouldn't wear contacts anymore. I was grateful when he told me that I simply had dry eye and needed to use lubricant drops and wear my glasses a bit more often. I have since become dedicated to caring for my eyes well and I decided to start a blog to help others learn how too, too!
