And while you are still understanding the whole ball game of prescription glasses we have made a list of fifteen things that you still may not know about your eye-care!

  1. Prescription of your Glasses needs to be checked every year to avoid eye-strain or eye concerns and Non Prescription Glasses can be worn as a fashion statement!

  2. An Optometrist is a professional in confirming your vision concerns, providing corrective measures by recommending Ophthalmologist or giving prescription to get glasses

  3. An Opthalmologist in an Eye-MD who researched on vision care, corrects impairments and concerns and provides medical assistance for eye health

  4. An Optician is a retail store for eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses where you can get your prescription made into glasses.

  5. Prescription Glasses may require coated lenses, progressive lenses or digital lenses even if they are the correct prescription for some experiencing eye-strain or dry-eye.

  6. The Perfect Pair of glasses may not be the perfect fit on your face due to the shape, structure of nose pads or lenses fitting.

  7. Prescription Glasses may not work correctly if you experience vision related problems due to hypertension, blood pressure or diabetes. You need medical assistance with prescription to battle it.

  8. New Eyeglasses take upto two days for eyes to adjust to vision and may not be clear immediately.

  9. You may need separate pair of glasses for reading or driving even if you don't wear regular prescription glasses. This could be due to age over 40.

  10. Bifocals are not the only solution to reading glasses, multifocals now provide a seamless progression without lines and works better for some.

  11. Not wearing prescription glasses even when you have a prescription DOES NOT help in correcting vision it actually strains eyes more

  12. Eating excessive Vitamin A or C can cause calcium deposits and only in moderation can keep blood circulation healthy to eyes thus not making them worse

  13. Along with anti glare glasses you must get Prescription Sunglasses to protect eyes from Ultraviolet damage

  14. Reading in low light does not damage your eyesight, it actually is exercising your pupils to dilate and contract making them work

  15. Watching excess TV causes eye damage is a myth as the short sightedness or long sightedness occurs due to poor blood circulation.
