Eyeglasses FAQs

Modern designer eyewear makes wearing glasses more appealing than ever. At the same time, having a greater variety of frames and lenses can make it more difficult to know which eyeglasses are best for you. These eyeglasses FAQs from Eyecare Professionals, serving residents in Mandan, Hazen, and Washburn, ND, provide the answers you need to make good eyewear choices.

How do I know I need prescription eyeglasses?

The best way to know if you need prescription eyeglasses is to schedule an eye exam. Our optometrist will test your vision to see if you have refractive vision errors that are impacting your sight. If so, we’ll write you a prescription for corrective lenses to improve your vision. During your eye exam, we’ll also check for signs of eye conditions and diseases that pose a risk to your sight.   

How do I select eyeglasses that enhance my appearance?

By trying on different eyeglass styles and designs, you can get a better idea of the frames that look good on you and enhance your overall appearance. At Eyecare Professionals, we carry an extensive inventory of designer frames in all colors, shapes, and sizes to suit your personal taste, prescription, lifestyle, and budget. We’ll guide you to selecting eyeglasses that are comfortable, functional, attractive, and affordable to suit your needs.

Are bifocals a good choice for me?

Bifocals are often a good choice for people over 40 years of age who have presbyopia, a condition that makes it difficult to focus on nearby objects. Bifocals correct both up-close and distance vision to maximize your sight.  

What are photo-chromic lenses and are they a good choice for me?

Photo-chromic lenses darken when exposed to the sun, enabling you to use them as sunglasses when outdoors. If you spend a great deal of your time outdoors and don’t want to buy a separate pair of prescription sunglasses, photo-chromic lenses could be right for you.

How can I prevent glare on my eyeglasses?

By having an anti-reflective coating added to your lenses, you can avoid problems with glare. This coating improves visual clarity indoors and out and enables people to see your eyes when speaking to you, which makes for friendlier interactions.

When should I change my glasses?    

As your vision changes, you may need to upgrade your eyeglasses to continue enjoying optimal sight. Our optometrist will let you know if you need new eyeglasses to compensate for a change in your prescription after your annual eye exam.
