For most people, a trip to the eye doctor comes every two years. (Though for certain conditions, you may have to go more often). If your exam shows that your eye glasses prescription hasn’t changed, you may opt to just keep your old frames and go on your merry way.
Questions to ask yourself when choosing eye glass frames:
- Will I be wearing these frames every day, for sports, for fun or for work?
- Am I choosing a frame that might appeal to me now because I am feeling funky, but will seem loud and garish when it is time to wear them to the office?
- What am I going to do with my current frames?
- How long will I have to wait before replacing these frames if I do decide I hate them?
- Is there a satisfaction guarantee?
Many eyeglass stores have a satisfaction guarantee which allows you to get the glasses, wear them for a day and then bring them back if you’re not happy with them. Sure, the color of those frames was great on the day you tried them on, but now in the bright light of the sun, you look freakish and you just want to get them as far from you as possible. However, make sure that you understand the full details before you make your purchase, because there might be restrictions in the fine print.

Do a little research first, and have some frame names and prices on hand so that you can do some comparison shopping. In addition, make sure that the salesperson is willing to help you make decisions about fit and function and not just focused on the ringing of the cash register. Look for a place that is well lit with lots of mirrors as well as access to a window so that you can get an idea of what the frames look like in natural light.
