Sooner or later the time has come: you need (new) glasses. Whether it’s your first pair, your prescription has changed, or you have simply fallen out of love with your old model – with glasses shopping, there are a few things that need special attention. We would like to lead you through the jungle of glasses shopping.
Purpose: it is important to be clear about what your visual aid is for. Are you going to wear it all day at work? In front of the screen or outside? Just in your free time, for reading for instance or while doing sports? For driving? Here you should choose plastic lenses, since they considerably reduce the risk of injury.
Fitting: to ease the burden of choice, you can comfortably order your favourite model on www.edel-optics.co.uk and have it delivered to your home where you can take your time to try it on, take pictures and let your friends have their say. To prevent disappointment, we recommend choosing the frame according to your prescribed lenses, since not every lens fits every frame.
Prescription: before ordering online, please make sure your eye doctor has tested your eyes and determined your dioptre number. This is essential for ordering the perfect glasses. In order to guarantee a super clear vision, your pupil distance also needs to be identified.
Model: once all this is in the clear, you should think about which colours, brands, styles and materials you fancy. Your glasses should reflect your personality and fit your appearance and clothing style. And of course, as usual, the price plays a significant role. As a general rule of thumb, for a round face, angular frames are more suitable, and for an angular face the round ones are better. If you have an oval face, any shape will suit you. Which glasses type you are, you can find out here.
