Although it is true glasses benefit us in many ways, it is easy for something to go amiss. Understanding the most common eyeglass problems will help ensure you are getting the most out of your lenses. This will also give you the tools you need to know what to do when issues do come up. If you have a new pair of eyeglasses that you are unhappy with, be sure and contact First Eye Care McKinney and talk to an eye specialist.

Which Eyeglass Problems Happen the Most?

It happens – your eyeglass prescription has failed, or your frames have started to slip down your face, driving you crazy. Thankfully, you don’t have to live with these annoyances forever. Yes, eyeglass problems happen, but they can also be easily fixed. The key is understanding what the problem is and who can help fix it (First Eye Care McKinney eye specialists!)

Let’s now take a look at the most common eyeglass problems:

  • Frames that slip and slide down your face – Hands down the most frequent eyeglasses complaint we get is slipping and sliding frames. If your glasses weren’t fitted properly in the first place, this can be a problem sooner than later. A slight adjustment is usually all that is needed to make sure the screws are tight, and the nosepiece is in the right position.
  • My prescription doesn’t seem right – If your vision is still blurry, or if your prescription just doesn’t seem right when looking through your eyeglasses, you may need to come in so we can take a look. In some cases, the lenses may have gotten mixed up, or your eye care specialist incorrectly assessed your vision. A simple eye exam should take care of this, and you will soon be on your way to crystal clear vision!
  • You just don’t like them – Yep, it happens. If you pick up your eyeglasses and just don’t like the way they look, that’s OK. Buyer’s remorse can hit even the savviest of eyeglass shopper, but in most cases, you will be able to exchange your frames for those that are more to your liking.
  • My glasses are putting off a glare at night – Many lenses work great during the day, only to give you trouble at night. If you have noticed an annoying glare when donning your glasses at night, you may need anti-reflective coating or newer lenses.

All of these common eyeglass problems can be easily remedied with the help of our experienced eyeglass technicians.
