Why You Should Purchase Your Eye Glasses From Your Optometrist

by nola

Eyeglasses come in all colors and sizes and can complement any face shape and wardrobe. When you get a new prescription from your optometrist, you can order your new frames and lenses at multiple places including online. Here are a few reasons you should purchase them from your eye doctor direct.

Test Drive Your Frames

Your doctor’s office will have a selection of affordable and designer frames that you can try on there to see how you look. You can pick and place multiple styles with the help of an associate. They have experience working with many clients and can offer suggestions that will coordinate with your complexion and angle of your face. They also have your chart on-hand so they can let you know what your deductible is and how much your insurance will cover. They can submit the cost to insurance, leaving you one last step you need to worry about.

Adjusting To Fit Your Needs

When you do pick up your glasses once they are finished, the doctor’s office can adjust them to fit your head correctly by manipulating the arms to be snug to the side of your face and assuring the nose pads sit in the right place. If you order your glasses online, they will come with little adjustment so wearing them could be awkward and could harm your eyesight. Also, if there is a problem and your frames or lenses need to be repaired, many optometrist offices can do that onsight so you can still take them home that day. Purchasing them from a discount store or the internet means you will have to ship them back to the manufacturer and wait for them to come back corrected. Once they are ready to go, the associates at the optometrist’s office will polish up the frames and clean the lenses so they are clear.
