Is it time for you to buy a pair of spectacle lenses to improve your vision? The task of going to the shop and purchasing a pair is not as simple as one may think, for there are some important considerations to think about that will make the task of buying spectacle lenses a lot better in terms of style and budget. Here are some of these considerations you ought to keep in mind while you are on your way to the shop!
The Technical Stuff to Remember
The “boring” but important stuff would, of course, be the grade you got when you had your refract session with the ophthalmologist. This is very important, especially if you are going to buy your frames somewhere else. Always know what kind of grade you have. In connection to this, you also ought to know what kind of lenses you want for your spectacle lenses. You only have two choices – plastic or glass, with the former being lightweight and can scratch easy while the latter is less resistant to scratches but can chip or break once dropped.
Warming up to the Fun Part
Once you have got all that technical detail on spectacle lenses out of the way, the fun part begins! Always know what frame shape will go best with the shape of your face. This means if you have a slightly square face, you should go for round lenses to offset the sharp angles. Likewise, having a round face will mean going for glasses that are more angularly shaped so you do not look “roly poly”. After knowing what frame shape for the spectacle lenses you want to get, you should then consider what color and design you want your spectacle lenses to come in. basically, more people like to get black ones or silver ones because these two colors are easiest to pair with most items in your wardrobe. However, you also have some individuals who rely on their spectacle lenses for their sense of personality – in which case you might want to look for quirky ones or ones that are on the unforgettable side.
The color and the style will also come in different thickness. Thin ones seem business-like and no-nonsense, while the thick ones give off an aura or a vibe of being artistic or free-spirited. These considerations are basically up to the kind of person you are and what you want to project.
And of course, the material of the lenses is very important. Do you want something that is hard to break and on the sturdy side? You might want to get a pair of spectacle lenses that are made of metal. Are you more into lighter frames that do not weigh down your face? If so, plastic spectacle lenses is the way to go. Whichever pair you choose, it is always best to consult with the opinion of others because they might have valuable input, without letting go of the details that you really liked in the first place. With tips like these, shopping for spectacle lenses ought to be a much easier endeavor for you!
