Choosing glasses to suit you

Glasses, which include both frames and lenses, are unique in that they are a fashion item, as well as a corrective device. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, approximately 50 per cent of the Australian population wear glasses (or “spectacles”), and almost everyone will need glasses at some time during their life.

Apart from the power of the lenses to correct vision problems, there are many other factors to consider when choosing a pair of glasses, including selecting lenses that suit the conditions under which you wear your glasses, and need selecting frames that both suit and fit your face shape.
