What Happens When You Need Eyeglasses But Don't Wear Them?
As manufacturers of designer-inspired eyeglass frames (without the designer price tag), our team believes we’re fulfilling an important mission for thousands of men and women who need quality eyewear, that helps his or her vision without hurting their wallet. Eyeglasses are so much more than a fashion statement, especially if you have a vision problem that interferes with day-to-day function, they can be essential for the health of your eyes and your overall safety.
Failing to wear prescription eyewear at appropriate times can lead to the following issues:
Abnormal development of the eyes. Children who don't wear glasses may experience more serious vision problems in the future. Some children who don't get their vision corrected may even develop a lazy eye and headaches, and also show signs of learning disabilities that are misdiagnosed. It’s common for a child to have trouble with reading when vision problems are not discovered and corrected.
A higher risk of accidents and injuries. When you can't see as well as you need to drive or get around, you are more likely to fall, cause car accidents or suffer other injuries. If your eyewear isn’t helping your vision, or helping you stay alert and focused on driving, reading, etc., it’s time for a new prescription or power level.
Headaches. Failing to wear your reading glasses, especially if you are farsighted, can lead to bothersome tension headaches, as well as peripheral problems, like jaw clenching. On the other hand, wearing a prescription that’s too strong can also cause headaches and fatigue.
If you know you need prescription eyeglasses, don't wait to get them. You can purchase a good pair of glasses from an optometrist, or you can search for eyeglass frames for sale online if you already know your prescription. Our “no power” reading glasses are sold with demo lenses, so you can take them to your eye doctor to fill with your prescription lenses (for a fraction of the cost of what you’d spend on designer eyeglasses).
