Glasses Q & A

What are glasses?

Glasses consist of prescription corrective lenses surrounded by frames of your choice. Whether you’re new to glasses or you already wear them, the experts at Eye Q Optique walk you through the process of getting your next pair. You can browse through their online store or come to one of the offices to take a look at the wide selection of budget, unique, and designer frame options.

What are the signs I might need glasses?

You may be a candidate for glasses, contact lenses, or other vision-correction solutions if you struggle to see things up close or from far away. Signs of vision problems in adults or children include frequent squinting, ongoing headaches, difficulty reading or seeing a board at school, or poor school performance. 

Vision problems are often genetic, but they could appear because of an eye infection or eye disease.

What are the benefits of glasses?

The benefits you can expect when getting glasses from Eye Q Optique include:

  • Clearer vision
  • Better school or workplace performance
  • Fewer headaches
  • Less squinting
  • Stylish, unique and flattering frame options

You might need glasses or contact lenses to correct vision impairment and obtain or renew your driver’s license.

Eye Q Optique offers specialty Zeiss lenses manufactured by Carl Zeiss AG, including digital lenses, DriveSafe lenses, office lenses, sports lenses, and sunglasses to name a few.

What should I expect during my optometry visit?

During an optometry appointment at Eye Q Optique, a friendly provider greets you and examines your eyes. They ask about your eye health, vision history, and any symptoms you may have. If you already wear glasses or contact lenses, bring them with you to your appointment. 

Your optometrist also completes vision testing to determine your vision prescription. They have you read from an eye chart using one eye at a time and again with both eyes. During refraction testing, you look through various lenses and let your optometrist know which ones allow you to see the most clearly. Your optometrist also evaluates your peripheral vision and color vision.

How often should I schedule eye exam appointments for glasses?

The Eye Q Optique team lets you know when to schedule your next optometry appointment based on your eye health and vision needs. They may recommend yearly visits, eye exams every 6 monthsr, or as recommended by the doctor. 

You can schedule an appointment at Eye Q Optique any time you have vision changes, such as blurry vision or difficulty seeing things from up close or far away, to get new glasses.
