Having prescription glasses is a game-changer for many people, both near and far-sighted. Walking around unable to see is not only inconvenient but makes life a lot harder. As far as being near-sighted goes, driving is one task that is nearly impossible without glasses. And for those who are far-sighted, getting anything done at work on your computer can be a challenge.
When it comes down to it, glasses play a major part in our lives and we may not notice how dependent we are on them until they break or need to be adjusted. Unfortunately, there comes a point where your glasses may need to get replaced. Whether they are broken or no longer help your vision, there comes a time when you have to get rid of the old pair and swap them for a new pair.
Here at Boca Optician, your local optical store in Boca Raton, Florida, we have glasses ready for you to choose from when it comes time to replace yours. And if you aren’t sure when it’s time to replace your glasses, you are in the right place. Here are the top 3 signs you need new glasses.
Your Prescription Changed
Maybe your glasses are in good condition, and you don’t think you don’t need a replacement. But, if your prescription has changed, you may want to reconsider. Wearing glasses that no longer represent your current vision can do more harm than good. Not being able to see as well as you could result in straining your eyes even more. Now, if your prescription changed very minimally, you may be able to get away with keeping the same glasses for a while. A drastic change in eyesight may warrant a completely new pair and it’s important to pay attention to the difference.
Two things to look out for are blurry vision, even with your glasses on, and the next thing to consider is how often you get your eyes examined. If you are wearing your glasses and notice you still cannot see too well, it may be time to get your eyes checked again. This brings us to our next point, how often you get your eyes examined. If you haven’t gotten your eyes examined in years, then you likely need a replacement pair. But if you get them examined every year routinely, you’re more likely to be on track.
You Want a Change
You might be thinking that all of the signs you need new glasses point to a lack of functionality. However, wanting a change is just as valid as a reason as the others. Having the same pair of glasses for years may become boring. Maybe you want to change up the look or color of them. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to spruce things up a bit. Whenever you want to change things up, the first thing you should do is get your eyes examined, unless you have got them checked out recently. That way, your brand new glasses have the correct and updated prescription.

Damaged Lenses and Frames
Last but not least, if your glasses are damaged in any way, it’s time for a new pair. Having damage done to your glasses may not seem like a reason to change, but it can get frustrating. For example, when the glasses become stretched out, they don’t quite fit as well anymore. You may find them sliding off your nose and needing to always get readjusted which can be frustrating in itself. The same with damaged or scratched lenses, loose screws, or warped frames. It may not seem like a big deal at first. But over time, you may get fed up. When this happens, the best thing you can do is pick out a brand new pair. Not only will this help you see better, but it will also ease your day to day frustrations.
