Do I need glasses?

Vision problems often present as a gradual decline, which can be hard to notice. That’s why we recommend you get an eye test at least every two years to allow your optometrist to assess your vision.

Some common symptoms of needing glasses include headaches, eye aches, frowning and squinting. Please book an eye test as soon as possible if you are experiencing any of these symptoms, or any other symptoms that are affecting your vision or you believe to be caused by a decline in vision.

The best way to know if you need glasses (or contact lenses) is to find an eye care professional near you and schedule a comprehensive eye exam.

How to choose the best glasses for your face?

If you are struggling to choose glasses that you feel comfortable in and that suit you, the best place to start is knowing what glasses typically suit your face shape.

Look at yourself in the mirror and familiarise yourself with what shape your face most resembles – oval, square, heart shape, round. Then, use our guide to find out what glasses best suit each face shape.

How often should you purchase a new pair of glasses?

Optometrists recommend replacing your glasses every one to three years. This can be shorter depending on the condition of your lenses or any changes in prescription.

We recommend getting an eye test every 2 years at least.

How to take care of your glasses

Your glasses are a vital part of your day-to-day life, and we want them to last you for as long as possible.

To reduce chances of breakage, always put your glasses away when you’re not using them – use a hard case to store your glasses, always facing upwards in the case to avoid any scratching.

Keep your glasses and lenses clean by using products specifically designed for cleaning your glasses. We also recommend not wearing your glasses on your head, as this can distort your glasses shape over time or cause loose screws and breakages.
