Interesting Eyecare Facts

By Dr. Reimer

Why should I buy another pair of glasses?

When faced with the question of whether to buy a new frame or re-use their old one, people will often think only of the immediate cost savings and use their old frame again. However, being dependent on one pair of glasses can put you in an awkward position if you lose or break them and there are many practical reasons why you should consider owning more than one pair.

1. Task-specific pairs of glasses optimized for activities such as golfing, computer, crafts, or reading make both work and play more enjoyable.

2. All professional drivers should have a spare pair of glasses with them when on the road.

3. Many people enjoy having a choice of frames – for different activities, or just for different “looks”.

4. Anyone who wears reading glasses will tell you an extra pair(s) is worth the cost.

5. Being forced to buy a new pair of glasses in a hurry may mean limited choices while imposing the expense on you when you least expect it.

So next time you consider replacing your glasses, keep these things in mind. And always keep your most recent pair in case of emergency!
