Knowing When It’s Time For New Frames

Eyeglasses don’t age quite as well as wine and cheese. Wear-and-tear is guaranteed to take a toll on your frames. Vintage may be “in” right now, but know the signs that indicate it’s probably time to consider new frames.

“How Do I Know When It’s Time?”

Of course, the #1 sign that you should be considering new lenses and frames is if you’re noticing changes in your vision! How long has it been since you updated your prescription? Most of the time, such changes are so gradual that you don’t think about it until it becomes a problem. Come visit with us and let’s check your vision and prescription. Other signs that you shouldn’t ignore include:

  • Frames with stripped screws
  • Heavily scratched or worn-down lenses
  • Bent frames that just don’t fit right
  • A loose fit that’s difficult to keep adjusted
  • Headaches more often than usual
  • Irritated skin at frame touch points
