Are you noticing yourself squinting more than normal?

People squint in order to better focus their eyes and reduce the amount of light entering them. Unless it’s unusually bright, you shouldn’t need to squint if your glasses are working correctly. Squinting could be a sign that you need a new prescription.

Have you noticed scratches or scrapes on your lenses?

Even if dings, scuffs, and scratches seem unobtrusive, they could be affecting your vision in ways you aren’t consciously aware of, which could lead to eye strain. If your lenses are scuffed or scratched, your best bet is to get a new pair. Invision Optical can get you fitted with the proper lenses to correct your vision issues. We also have a large selection of very durable lenses from different brands.

Are you getting frequent headaches?

Even though your vision may seem just fine with your old glasses, out-of-date prescriptions may cause eye strain, which can lead to headaches. If you’ve been experiencing an uptick in headaches recently, the best remedy may actually be new glasses.

Are your glasses becoming outdated?

Just as features like UV protection and glare reduction were once a pipe dream, new technologies are constantly being developed to make your glasses better. If your glasses are old, there may be new innovations that can enhance your vision and make the experience of wearing glasses even better.

The above mentioned are just a few of the indicators that you may need a new pair of glasses. When you come to Invision Optical looking for eyeglasses, you will be met with vision specialists that can get you fitted with the right pair, and a massive selection of styles and brands!
