Do You Have a Pair of Backup Glasses That Are the Right Prescription? Come in Today!

When you last had an appointment with your eye doctor, they likely gave you the chance to buy two pairs of eyeglasses. Both pairs had an identical prescription, but the second was meant to be used as a backup.

Of course, if it’s been more than a few years since you’ve last been to the eye doctor’s, you could put on your backup pair of eyeglasses and discover your vision is still blurry or otherwise unclear.

By visiting a Medina optometrist, you can get a vision exam. You’ll then get fitted for glasses (and backup glasses) at the right prescription.

Reasons It’s Good to Have a Backup Pair of Eyeglasses

There are so many reasons it’s good to have a backup pair of eyeglasses, such as:

  • You’re covered if you accidentally break your primary pair of eyeglasses.
  • If you lose your glasses, you can just use your backup pair.
  • Over time, the parts of your primary pair of glasses may become loose. These include the arms of the glasses and the tiny screws that hold these together. Your backup pair of glasses will fit properly to your face.
  • If your glasses somehow become badly damaged, such as a deep scratch in the lens or even one lens falling out, you can save money on costly repairs by wearing your backup pair of glasses.

How Often You Should See Your Eye Doctor

Of course, if the prescription for your backup glasses is no longer accurate, the above points are moot. That’s why you should always make it a point to see your eye doctor every year

Even if your prescription doesn’t change, you should still prioritize going to see your eye doctor. Your optometrist can detect serious vision issues like cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and more. Many of these conditions can’t be “seen” or felt until very advanced, which is why proper detection is so important
