While the “one-pair-fits-all” mindset might be okay for some people, it’s not common that a single pair of glasses will be the ideal choice for every task in our hectic modern lifestyles. With designer eyewear styles evolving and expanding, your eyeglass wardrobe should be expanding, too! It’s true that different pairs of glasses are a quick and easy way to update your look, but here are four more reasons you should expand upon your collection of optical accessories.
1. Match Your Glasses to the Mood
First impressions are important! And just like you’d pair different shoes with the different pants you might be wearing, your eyeglasses are no different. While you’re at work, a sophisticated pair of Oliver Peoples glasses might be the best choice for helping you get stuff done while looking the part of a professional. When it’s quitting time, however, a more daring pair of Tom Ford frames might be in order. You can go from office-ready to rockstar in a flash!
2. Glasses Features
While the frames certainly help with the way a pair of eyeglasses looks, your prescription lenses are really the stars of the show. If you’re matching glasses to the mood, you should also be matching the features of those glasses to whatever it is you’re doing. For instance, the Zeiss company makes lenses specifically for viewing electronic displays like phones, tablets, and computers. The Zeiss Digital Lenses are perfect for eliminating eye strain and stiff neck.
After work, a pair of Zeiss DriveSafe lenses might help with the sun glare (or low-light environments) as you begin your evening commute. The lens features are just as important as the look of your glasses in fitting with your activities.
3. Glasses for Staying Safe
Bifocals and trifocal lenses are vital to some for work-related tasks. But even if your hobbies require a keen eye, getting the proper lenses will help significantly reducing discomfort from wearing corrective lenses. Speak to your optometrist about your daily activities and ask about your options for reading segments of bifocal and trifocal lenses.
In addition, your day-to-day work might put your eyes in dangerous situations. Safety frames and safety lenses will provide an extra layer of protection for anyone who needs it.
4. Accidents Happen
Your dog ate your eyeglasses. You left your specs on the train. Your toddler played a very successful round of hide-and-go-lose. Your glasses were an unfortunate casualty of a round of couch wrestling. Any of these sound familiar?
Instead of doing without your glasses (which, for some of us, could be downright dangerous), it’s always a great idea to have a spare pair or two lying around in case of emergency. While many people keep an old pair of glasses around for this reason, jumping back and forth between a current prescription and an expired one can be hard on your eyes. Whether you keep a spare in the car or by the bed, it’s always a good idea to be prepared.
