Buying Glasses

One of the best times to consider purchasing decisions and to conduct research on available options is before an eye care provider recommends glasses for a teenager or finds that his or her prescription has changed. Having an idea about the types of lenses and frame styles available, as well as sources for buying glasses and a budget, will make the glasses-buying experience smoother, whether it is the first pair of glasses or an annual replacement.

For parents or a teenager making the purchasing decision, there are a number of different factors to think about before buying glasses, including where to purchase the glasses, what questions to ask to help ensure that the glasses suit the teen’s needs and lifestyle, and the role that vision insurance or medical insurance may play in helping pay for new glasses.
