3 Common Problems Associated With New Eyeglasses & How to Fix Them

Your eyeglasses are not just a key part of your everyday style, they are also necessary for you to see clearly and perform well, whether it’s at school or the office. So when you get a new pair, you want them to fit and work perfectly.

However, if you have recently had an eye exam and purchased a new pair of spectacles, there are certain issues you may face, including:

 

1. The Frame Keeps Sliding

Are your new eyeglasses constantly sliding down your nose? This can be extremely frustrating and may even impede your daily routine. Don’t worry! Your optometrist will be able to assess the frames and fix the problem by:

  • Adjusting the frame’s screws
  • Tightening the temples for a better and more snug fit
  • Spreading the nose-pieces for better placement
Trying to Fix Your Eyeglasses at Home Can Lead to Higher Costs  

If your new eyeglasses are fitting incorrectly, DO NOT try to fix them at home. Without the right equipment and knowledge, you can damage your spectacles beyond repair, resulting in higher costs and even greater frustration.

 

2. The Prescription is Wrong

This is a very rare problem with new eyeglasses, but there may be times when you find that you have been fitted with the wrong prescription. You should visit your optometrist if you are experiencing symptoms such as:

  • Extremely blurred vision or lack of focus
  • Headaches or dizziness caused by eye strain
  • Vertigo not related to any underlying medical condition
  • Persistent vision discomfort
Suspect You Have the Wrong Prescription? Here’s What You Should Do

If you suspect that your eyeglasses have the wrong prescription, you should visit your eye doctor as soon as you can. In most cases if they have assessed your eyesight incorrectly, you’ll get replacement lenses for free based on the new eye exam.

 

3. You’re Unhappy With the Style

Whether you got caught up in the excitement of buying new frames, or you didn’t take enough time to consider all of your options, it’s not uncommon for some people to end up with a new pair of frames that they don’t love.

 

Pro Tip From Our Calgary Optometrist: Before you invest in a new pair of frames, ALWAYS ask about information regarding the exchange, return, and warranty policies at your eye clinic. Never rush the process of selecting new eye glasses; you wear them daily and you should feel 100% comfortable and happy with them.
