Glasses Threatening to Ruin Your Look? Here Are Your Options


lifestyle_logo

It happens to a lot of people. You have to start squinting to see things in the distance or holding things out from your face to read. Maybe you’re getting headaches, or your eyes are feeling strained a lot. You think you have to get glasses. You might not be in school anymore, and no one is going to call you four-eyes. But just because it’s not the end of the world, it doesn’t mean you won’t feel self-conscious. It’s always strange when you have to change your habits, and maybe you’re convinced that you won’t suit glasses. Before you panic that you’re going to look like a nerd forever, here are your options.

Rule Out Other Issues

If you haven’t had your eyes tested yet, that’s the first thing you need to do. Being unable to see as clearly could be an indication of other issues. Older people, from their 40s and 50s, are more likely to start having problems with their eyes. For example, problems with your eyes could be a sign of an eye disease or something like diabetes. An eye exam should pick these things up, so make an appointment with an optician. You’ll need to do this anyway, so you can get an accurate prescription if you need glasses.

Own It

So, you’ve found out you do need to correct your vision. You can choose to wear contacts, but it’s always a good idea to have a pair of glasses too. And not everyone likes the idea of wearing contacts, especially not right away. If you’re going to get glasses and wear them often, you might as well look gorgeous in them. Your first option is to make wearing glasses look incredible, by picking a pair (or two) that suit you. Choose some that match your style and have a look at the designer frames available. Take inspiration from your favorite celebrity glasses-wearers too.

Wear Contacts

If you can’t stand wearing glasses, you can try contact lenses instead. It can be a bit daunting and awkward trying to put them in at first. But once you’ve got the hang of it, it becomes an easy part of your routine. You can get daily disposable lenses or monthly reusable ones. You’ll have to have a contact lens fitting to find the best ones for you. Once you have your lens prescription, you can order from LensDirect and other online services. But you should still go back to your optician for a checkup now and then.

Have Laser Surgery

Another option is to have surgery to correct your vision. You won’t have to wear glasses or fiddle with contact lenses any longer. However, there are downsides to opting for surgery. Your vision can change later, and you could end up needing glasses again in a few years. And, as with any surgery, there are always risks involved.

You have options if you find out you need glasses. Either make them look awesome or choose a way to avoid wearing them.
