Would you wear the same outfit to work as you would to the gym? Probably not, and the same applies to eyeglasses. Different types of eyeglasses are suited to different activities, which is why it’s a good idea to have more than one pair.
Here’s why your eye care center recommends investing in a second pair of glasses:
So You Have a Spare When Accidents Happen
Accidents happen to anyone–anytime, anywhere–no matter how careful you are. You might accidentally drop your eyeglasses and break them, or simply misplace them one day. Without your eyeglasses, life suddenly becomes a lot more difficult. If you have a second pair of eyeglasses, you’ll have an immediate backup and your daily life won’t be interrupted.
Eyeglasses for Different Activities
If you spend significant time outside, your optometrist recommends investing in a second pair of eyeglasses that offers optimum UV protection. We can upgrade your prescription lenses with sun-adaptive features so your spare eyeglasses can serve a double purpose as prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses.
If you spend extensive time sitting in front of a computer, on the other hand, you may want to consider getting a second pair of eyeglasses that’s computer-safe. These eyeglasses feature special lenses are technically engineered to block blue light from your devices, lowering your risk of developing digital eye strain.
Eyeglasses Make Great Accessories
Since you’ll be wearing eyeglasses most of the time, you may want to get pairs with different designs. There are various eyeglass frame colors and styles available. From elegant, neutral-colored ones to funky, bold designs, having different-styled eyeglasses can change your look instantly. Your eye doctor will be happy to help you find a pair–or two–that meets your wants and needs.
