3 Reasons Why You Should Adjust Your Eyeglasses

Do you wear eyeglasses? Apart from yearly eye exams, it’s important to visit your local Calgary optometrist for frequent adjustments to ensure your spectacles are working optimally!

The quality of your vision and the underlying health of your eyes is fundamental to your quality of life and visiting your Calgary optometrist for regular eye exams is important because they will be able to check for common eye conditions such as:

  • Refractive errors (e.g nearsightedness or long sightedness) and suggest appropriate remedies such as eyeglasses or contact lenses.
  • Strabismus, which affects the alignment of your eyes.
  • Focusing problems which arise from incompletely developed focusing skills in children or an age-related decline in focusing ability in seniors.
  • Eye diseases such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy that could cause vision loss.

3 Reasons Why You Should Adjust Your Eyeglasses

Did you know it’s important to visit your local Calgary eye doctor in between your eye exams, and not only because of any eye problems or changes of vision you may be experiencing? It’s because you MUST keep your eyeglasses properly adjusted.

Here are four reasons why you should always keep your spectacles fitting properly:

1. You’ll Be Able to See Better

Ensuring that your eyeglasses are well-fitted will give you better vision. This is especially true for people who wear progressive lenses. In fact, approximately 80% of problems patients have with progressive lenses come from fitting errors.

Some of the problems with poorly fitting progressive lenses include:

  • Clear vision in one eye only
  • Narrower field of vision
  • On-axis blur
  • The need to tilt your head in order to see clearly

Because your optometrist has measured and placed the visual fields in specific places on your lenses based on your glasses sitting correctly on your nose, it’s important to visit them as soon as your glasses start feeling loose or ill-fitting.

Getting Used To New Glasses

2. Your Eyeglasses Will Last Longer

When you wear your eyeglasses for too long without any adjustments, it is inevitable that they will become loose. This may cause them to fall off and become damaged.

The best way to ensure this doesn’t happen? Keep your spectacles fitting correctly on your nose and prevent them from sliding by getting proper adjustments whenever they start to feel loose.

3. You Will Feel More Comfortable

Apart from ensuring your vision is clear, getting your eyeglasses regularly adjusted in between your eye exams is important to your comfort and safety. This is because:

  • Glasses that don’t fit properly can look out of place and detract from a professional appearance.
  • They can cause discomfort, pressing tightly against your ears, sliding down your nose, or pinching the bridge of your nose.
  • You may not wear your spectacles as often as you should if they don’t fit properly, and this can put your eye health and safety at risk.
  • Your eyeglasses won’t be correcting your vision properly if they don’t fit as they should.

REMEMBER: The fitting of your glasses is an important part of looking and seeing your best.
