If you’re buying just one pair of glasses, avoid trendy frames that could go out of style quickly. (Best is always to have a spare pair in case one breaks)

If you’re buying glasses for a child whose prescription changes often, ask to have new lenses put in the old frames, rather than buying new frames each time.

Choose a style with spring hinges, which allow the temples to flex slightly outward without breaking the eyeglasses.

Ask for scratch-resistant coating.

Follow your eye care professional’s instructions for the proper care of your glasses. Improper care is a primary cause of damage to anti-reflective coating and can cause other problems as well.

Very important: Always make sure you discuss and make decisions about your eye care based upon a formal appointment with your optician.
