What is the best way to clean my glasses?
Always run your lenses under lukewarm water, and let the water run over both sides of your eyeglass lenses. Then, apply a mild dish detergent to the lenses to remove oils and dirt. Rinse the lenses, and then dry the lenses with a soft cloth, tissue, or toilet paper. Avoid paper towels, tissues with lotion, or any cloths laundered with a fabric softener.
Will my eyes get weaker from wearing my glasses?
Provided your eyeglasses are made correctly, wearing your glasses will not make your eyes weaker. In fact, the glasses will help relieve eyestrain because your eyes will no longer have to overcompensate for clearer vision.
Why are some eyeglasses more expensive than others?
There are many companies that make frames, lenses, and lens coatings. Just like any industry, the optical industry has products of varying quality. Traditionally, your more expensive products are made from better materials or have higher quality product processing. In the long run, because the better quality products are made to a higher standard, they usually last longer saving the client money and aggravation long-term. For more information on frame and lens materials and manufacturing processes, contact Erica @ Studio 20/20.
What is the difference between an ophthalmologist, optometrist, and optician?
Ohhhh, the 3 O’s question. An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor. They can perform regular eye exams, treat eye diseases, and perform surgery in relation to the eye and visual system. Optometrists examine, diagnose, treat, and manage certain diseases, injuries, and disorders of the visual system, the eye, and associated structures as well as identify related systemic conditions affecting the eye. An optician specializes in fabricating visual devices that include eyeglasses and contact lenses. Once a client has had an eye exam and gets an eyeglass prescription, the optician is the individual that designs the glasses to meet the client’s visual needs.
