Vital Signs It's Time For New Glasses

As busy parents, we spend so much time looking after our little ones, keeping the house in check and even working full time that we often neglect our own needs. Whether that’s forgetting to visit the dentist or neglecting to visit the doctor when we’re sick. Another area busy parents neglect is their eye health.

It’s not always easy to find the time to choose a new set of frames, but when you visit you can choose a new set of frames in the comfort of your own home and even virtually try on thousands of different styles! 

Wondering if you need new eyewear? Read on for vital signs that it’s time for new glasses.

You’re struggling with headaches

Headaches and migraines can be incredibly debilitating. They make looking after your family, running the household and working 9-5 extremely challenging. You might think that because you can see through your current glasses that your vision is fine, however even the slightest change in your prescription can cause your eyes to strain and as a result, lead to excruciating headaches. Headaches can be a sign of many things, however, if it's been a while since you had a new prescription and new glasses, consider making this a priority. 

Your frames have seen better days

Whether you're resting them on top of your head or the kids are playing with them, you've accidentally sat on them whilst looking for them or you're in the habit of taking them off using one of the arms, your glasses go through a lot and that means they can get a little worse for wear. If they don't fit correctly and you're always pushing them up your nose, they're lopsided or wobbly, then it's time to choose a new pair of glasses.

They’re never clean

Are you always wiping your glasses, yet they’re forever grimy and greasy? Does it make your lenses blurry and difficult to see through? If this is the case, then you should look for a new prescription and a new set of frames. Most lenses are crafted with a special coating to keep them protected against scratches and smears, if you’ve had your glasses for a long time then this coating may have worn away. 

You don’t want to wear them

If you don't want to wear them and you're exhausting your eyes with extensive contact lens use because you dislike your eyewear, then it's time for new frames. Search online and you're sure to find a pair that matches your skin tone, complements your facial features and look great on you!

They don’t suit you

Fashion trends come and go, and sometimes our tastes change too! So, if you’ve been lumbered with the same pair of glasses for years, you may no longer like them and hate wearing them. If this is the case, then what are you waiting for? Head online and find your perfect pair, today!
