Getting Eyeglasses for the First Time

Getting your first pair of glasses after half of your life with regular vision can be a bit unnerving. You're going through one of the first recognitions and personal acknowledgments of getting older, and you start to realize how important vision can be in every aspect of your life. So, it's no surprise people have a variety of reactions to need vision aid resources. Some resist until things get serious and some accept things and resolve the matter quickly; everybody has their own approach to how they deal with vision. Having treated thousands of cases and hundreds of patients at Albuquerque Vision Care and Advanced Eyewear, we strongly recommend coming in and getting an eye exam as soon as you notice something off about your vision for a number of reasons.


Time Takes a Toll, But It's Not the Only Culprit

Eye conditions that manifest over time can be caused by a lot of different things:

  • Age is the most common as our eyes along with the rest of our bodies don't work so perfect anymore.
  • A degenerative condition that is starting to manifest and needs correction to slow down its progress
  • A workload and constant eye strain such as computer work that has pushed the patient's eyes beyond normal capacity
  • A symptom being caused by another condition entirely, but it is appearing in the form of disrupting one's vision

Don't Try to Guess

Without a proper exam and diagnosis by a licensed eye doctor, it's pretty much impossible for an average person to identify what's going on with his or her vision on their own. The exam objectively identifies as well as confirms the condition of the eyes, any abnormalities, and the type of corrective tools that can be used. This in turn creates a prescription which can be filled out by any glasses manufacturer to produce the necessary glasses. Albuquerque Vision Care and Advanced Eyewear has a large assortment of models and help available onsite, which makes it very easy for our patients to schedule an exam to have their prescription glasses ordered and filled right in the same location. We also carry a good portfolio of designer glasses to choose from, so you don't need to worry about looking like Clark Kent/Superman with your first pair of glasses.
