Top 3 Myths about Eyeglasses

You may have heard the top three myths about eye glasses.  Don’t believe everything you hear.

  1. Myth #1: Glasses make you look older – This is a big one. As we age, the likelihood of wearing glasses becomes a lot stronger as the lens in our eyes become harder with age. You may not know this, but if you choose the right pair, glasses can actually make you appear younger. When you are shopping for eyeglasses for a younger look, make sure to consider the style, trends, and color. Wearing glasses with an upswept frame can provide a face-lift free of charge. Avoid styles that focus downward or have heavy bottomed frames and make sure to keep up with the fashion trends. If big frames are ‘in’ go with big frames and vice versa. Stay away from dull or dark colors; instead, opt for colors that accentuate your skin tone or eye color. Rimless glasses are a good choice as well. Don’t believe the myth—glasses are beautiful and youthful!
  2. Myth #2: Glasses make your vision worse and dependent on them –If you feel it becomes harder to see after wearing glasses, well, it is! Eye sight issues worsen naturally. This has nothing to do with your eyeglasses. What is happening is that your eyes are spoiled. Your glasses have gotten your eyes so used to the clearer vision that when you take them off, the blurriness is more noticeable and uncomfortable. Rest assured – your eyeglasses are your friend, not your enemy.
  3. Myth #3: Your prescription never changes – If you wear glasses, your prescription remains the same but your eye lens continue to stiffen as you get older. The rate at which this shift occurs depends on your age and vision history. Some people may never need more than one vision prescription in their lifetime, while others may experience a significant change in just one year. Typically, if you are over the age of 50 – a new prescription every year is common. You can get personal information on your case from your eye doctor.
