If it’s time to upgrade your eyeglasses, visit your local optometrist before buying online.

Your eyeglasses are one of the first things people notice about you. They shape the first impression and add to your personal style. In short, your glasses are a part of your identity. If you’re searching for a way to refresh your look and have found yourself asking friends and family if you should change your hairstyle, it may be time to refresh your look by starting with a new set of frames.

Finding frames that mesh your style with the demands of your everyday life is essential. Since you wear your glasses every day, it’s important that they are functional, as well as fashionable. Buying glasses online has been a trend the past few years, and while it may seem cheaper and more convenient, if you are only shopping online, you are doing yourself a disservice.

The ability to physically touch and try on frames is an essential part of the fitting process. What you think you want may not be right for your face, and you may end up choosing a style that you weren’t originally drawn to.

Eye care consultants provide one-on-one assistance and advice you may need. They get to know your needs and make recommendations as to the type and style of frame that will be most functional and fashionable for you.

Essentially, the most important thing to consider is the placement of the lens in relation to your eye. Your prescription is unique to you and it’s important that your pupil be centered in each lens to get the best vision from wearing your glasses. 

With every pair of frames from our optical, you get free adjustments, free replacements for nose pads and screws–and that coverage is guaranteed for the lifetime of the frames. We offer competitive prices, frame and lens warranties, and rebates that are only offered through manufacturers.

Of course, for any age, eyeglass brands play a big role in the final purchase, but they shouldn’t be the defining factor of your purchase. If you’re looking for designer frames, we offer Kate Spade, Coach, Ray Bans, and Nike. For something more affordable yet still stylish, you can try on Nautica, Candies, and Europa.

Bodenhamer Eye Consultants carry all of these brands and more in our office, and we are always available for fittings. Visit us today to find the perfect frames for your personal style with all the perks of trying on what’s right for you.
