We navigate and experience the world around us through our eyes. They are the portals through which we experience our everyday life. This is why it is important for all of us to take care of our eyes and vision. Picking the right pair of spectacles or sunglasses are essential for preventive and corrective vision solutions. They will help you gain clear vision, protect your eyes from the sun and the glare from digital devices, and add style to your appearance too! To ensure that you are comfortable with your pair of spectacles or sunglasses, make sure that they are well-fitted and reflect your personal style. The qualified professionals at Titan Eye Plus stores can guide you in selecting a new pair. While picking the perfect pair, especially shopping online, the following factors are essential to consider:
The Right Prescription
First, it is necessary to have an updated prescription while buying spectacles. If your prescription is not updated, the wrong lenses may cause headaches and also affect your vision in the long term. You can walk into any Titan Eye Plus store to get a 20 step zero error eye test done by our certified and experienced optometrists, to find out what your correct eyeglass power is.
The Frame Style
Next, you need to choose the right pair of frames for your glasses. On the website, Titan Eye Plus has divided frames into three categories to make your choice easier—rimmed, rimless, or semi-rimmed. You can also choose from metal or plastic materials. The professionals at Titan Eye Plus stores can guide you through the pros and cons of each. There is also huge variety of frames available in different shapes. Some of the most popular ones are rectangle, cat eye, wayfarer, aviator and round shapes, to name a few.
If you live in very hot or humid environments, you may get an allergic reaction from the nose pads in metal frames. Plastic frames are light in weight and very durable, but come only in rimmed styles. They are especially suited for young children as these frames can take a lot of punishment.
Check the fit after you’ve chosen a frame. Just as lenses are crucial for clear vision, the right pair of frames are also important. Since you will be wearing these spectacles throughout the day, they shouldn’t pinch the nose or ears, or slide down your nose. The appearance of the frame is important but comfort is a bigger priority. Choose lightweight frames, so you don’t feel the pressure on your ears and nose-bridge.
At Titan Eyeplus, we recommend a simple 3-point test to check the fit of your glasses. Look for this detailed fit guide on each Titan Eye Plus product which specifies the lens width (the horizontal length of the frame’s lens), nose bridge width (the distance between the two lenses), and temple length (the length of the spectacle arms). The closer these numbers are to your face’s measurements, the better the fit you’ll experience with your eye- or sunglasses.
Consider the ideal size and shape that matches the appearance and width of your face. You should pick frames as per the needs of your lifestyle—like a sporty, professional, or chic look, etc. When trying on frames, make sure you get a large field of vision from all angles, and don’t have to move your head or eyes to look through the lenses.
The Correct Lenses (Lens design)
The next decision you need to make is about the lenses. Only the right pair of lenses—single vision, zero power, progressive or bifocals—can offer the precision in vision that you expect. Our experienced and certified professionals at your nearest Titan Eye Plus store will be happy to help you pick lenses as per your visual need post which a check will be done to ensure you can see clearly from different visual zones.
Now, select the lens material, best suited to your lifestyle. The eyeglass lenses you choose may be influenced by -five factors: appearance, comfort, vision, durability and safety. There is a wide variety of materials available at our stores that include, glass, polycarbonate or high-index lenses and more. Consult the optometrist at our stores before choosing one that suits your requirements.
Lastly, you can choose from an array of lens coatings which will add value and longevity to your glasses. These coatings can enhance the durability, performance and appearance of your eyeglass lenses whether you wear single vision, bifocal or progressive lenses. At Titan Eyeplus, we offer a variety of coatings with the lenses: Basic (scratch-resistant), Anti-reflective (benefits of Basic + reduces reflection), Advantage (dust and water repellent), Ozone (Benefits of Advantage + Blue light protection + UV protection) and Tech Lens (enhanced blue light protection).
Scratch-resistant coatings add a hard surface that protect your glasses from scratches if you drop them accidentally or handle them roughly. Anti-reflective coatings reduce glare and halos around lights at night, and eliminate unattractive reflections from your lenses. You can further choose from dust and water repelling, smudge resistant, UV protective, blue-tech and other coatings. Your Titan Eyeplus optometrist can guide you in choosing the best selection of coatings suited to your lifestyle.
