The Importance of Scheduling Annual, Eye Exams

The Importance of Scheduling Annual, Eye Exams

A few years ago, my dear maternal grandmother visited an optometrist. After thoroughly examining my grandmother’s eyes, this medical professional informed her that she had cataracts in both of them. Concerned, my grandmother immediately made an appointment with a surgeon. The two surgeries to remove the cataracts from my grandmother’s eyes were successful. Scheduling annual eye exams is crucial. During these appointments, your optometrist will check for potentially harmful conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. On this blog, I hope you will discover the most important reasons you should visit your eye doctor every year. Enjoy!

Want To Look "Book-Smart" Only Some Of The Time? How To Mix And Match Your Eyeglass Frames With Contact Lenses

Stella Harvey

Sometimes you do not want to be seen in eyeglasses. At other times, it is a look you desperately want to adopt because of the group of people or the person with whom you are spending your days. If you actually need prescription eye wear, but you do not want to wear glasses all the time, or if you would just like to sport eyeglasses as an accessory a la Elton John, then here is how you can mix and match your eyeglass frames with contact lenses.

Prescription Clear Lenses, No Glasses

Want to fool everyone into thinking you do not wear glasses? People have been doing this for about sixty or seventy years now with the help of prescription contacts. Way back then they only had hard lenses, which scratched your corneas and were not comfortable to wear, but people wore them anyway. Now you can wear soft lenses that you cannot even tell are there. When you have prescription soft contacts, you do not have to wear anything else and only you know the truth.

Colored Lenses or Fashion Lenses and Glasses

Have you always wanted to have bright blue eyes but wear black, horn-rimmed glasses? Or maybe you wanted hazel eyes and tortoise shell glasses? Now you can have both. The best part is that neither the glasses or the contacts have to be prescription eye wear, and if you do need prescription eye wear, it can be in the lenses or in the glasses. You can even wear fashion lenses for zombie and dracula eyes with a pair of bifocals, if you choose.

Glasses and No Contacts

If you are totally going for the librarian or class geek look (which is very chic!), it is glasses all the way and no contacts at all. Eventually, you might want to invest in a disposable pair of contacts, just for special occasions when you want to go sans glasses, but most people who really like their glasses enjoy wearing them all the time. The plus to just glasses is that you can buy more than one pair at a time, and use them as accessories just like you would a belt or scarf. People often buy a "two for one" deal when they buy glasses just to have a spare pair, but you could do this to have plenty of varied eyeglass frame styles and colors to wear. You can do this even if you do not need prescription lenses, and if you do not need the prescription, the clear plastic lenses or empty frames are even cheaper.
