Prescription glasses are not just a necessity for people with vision issues, but they have also become a fashion accessory. With so many frames and styles available in the market, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one for you. Here are some things to keep in mind while buying prescription glasses:

1. Prescription: It is important to have an up-to-date prescription from your eye doctor. The prescription indicates the type of lens you need, and the strength required to correct your vision.

2. Frame Material: The material of the frame affects both the durability and the weight of the glasses. Frames can be made of plastic, metal, or a combination of both. If you have a higher prescription, it is recommended to choose a lighter frame material to minimize the weight on your nose.

3. Style: Prescription glasses come in a variety of styles and shapes. The right style will depend on your face shape, personal preference, and lifestyle. Eyewear specialists at Spectacles Vision Centre can help you choose the perfect style for you.

4. Lens Type: There are various types of lenses available, including single-vision, bifocal, and progressive lenses. Single-vision lenses are for people with a single prescription, while bifocal and progressive lenses are for people with multiple prescriptions. It is important to choose the right lens type based on your prescription and lifestyle needs.

5. Lens Coating: Lens coatings can enhance the durability, clarity, and comfort of your glasses. Some popular coatings include anti-scratch, anti-glare, and UV protection. These coatings can help protect your glasses from scratches, reduce glare, and protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.

6. Fit: A proper fit is essential for comfort and optimal vision. The glasses should fit snugly on your nose and ears, without feeling too tight or too loose. The eyewear specialists at Spectacles Vision Centre can help you with the fitting process.
