Eyeglasses FAQs

How Long Does It Take to Get Prescription Eyeglasses?

The time it takes to get prescription eyeglasses depends on how soon you want your glasses. You can get your prescription for eyeglasses with your first visit and your custom eyeglasses in as little as one week after an eye exam.

How Do I Know the Right Frames for Me?

Choose glasses that suit your style. There are many frame shapes, sizes, styles, colors, and materials to choose from. There is a pair of glasses for everyone. For example, if you want to appear more professional at work, then simple black glasses are an excellent option. However, you may want to be more adventurous and choose glasses that are colorfully patterned or picturesque.

Which Eye Conditions Can Be Corrected Using Eyeglasses?

Eyeglasses can correct or improve many different eye conditions, such as:

  • Astigmatism
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Presbyopia (age-related loss of near vision)

If you think you may need glasses to correct your vision, make an appointment with one of our optometrists. Once the eye doctor performs a comprehensive eye exam, we can tell you if you need glasses. If glasses are needed, we can also determine which types of lenses will work best for you.

How Often Should I Replace My Eyeglasses?

Replace your glasses when you feel they are not performing as needed. Most pairs of glasses need to be replaced every one to three years due to normal wear and tear. The hinges may become loose, the lenses may get scratched, or your prescription could change. No matter how well you take care of your glasses, they will eventually need replacing.
