If you have blurred vision problems or are not able to read things both near and far clearly, then it’s definitely a sign that you need eye glasses to improve your vision. The best way to buy a pair of eye glasses is to first see a eye doctor and have him check your eyes and vision, so that he can determine the exact reason and problem you are facing with your vision. If it’s a temporary thing and due to some infection he will prescribe some drops which will help restore your clear vision within a few days and if not, then he will prescribe some further tests to know the exact problem and treat the problem accordingly.


If its a vision correction problem, the eye doctor will prescribe eye glasses with a certain focal length to get your eyesight back to normal levels and ensure you have a clear vision. Eye glasses are usually made depending on whether you have near sightedness that is problem reading books and things close to the eyes or far sightedness that is problem watching television or reading things located at a distance.


While there are many variants of eye glasses available, from cheap eyeglasses to premium designer glasses that cost a fortune, you should buy one that suits your facial features perfectly and is light weight enough to not cause you a discomfort while wearing them.



Eyeglasses not only help those who have vision problems see better and clearer, but have also become a fashion statement nowadays. Two of the elements that can be customised as per your needs are the frame of the glasses and the actual glass itself which can be cut in different shapes, allowing you to select the shape that best suits your face. Some of the best frames for eyeglasses are


Rimless Frames


Rimless glass frames have no frame at all around the lens. The glasses are attached to the temples i.e. the long arms on the sides of the frame that extend over the ears to keep the glasses on the wearer’s face and the bridge i.e. the part that rests on the wearers nose and bears the weight of the glasses. These frames are normally made by high skilled technicians as they need very precision drilling to ensure the temples are properly aligned and fitted to the glass, otherwise the glass make crack and break easily due to normal wear and tear. You need to be extra cautious while using rimless glasses due to their delicate construction and support system. These glasses are not suggested for daily wear and should ideally be worn on special occasions, to ensure they last a long time.


Half Rim Glasses A half-rimless glasses frame design has a rim over the top half of the lens, while the bottom part of the lens is held in place by a nylon cord, but some frames are drill mounted so the cord is not necessary. More sturdy than rimless glasses, these frames can be used daily without fear of easy breakage. While they don’t come in the category of cheap eyeglasses they are not very expensive and easily available to fit all budgets. Designer Glasses Available in all shapes and sizes, these glasses are designed more for having ornamental and style value than for actual usage. Most of the designer glasses are made by big and reputed fashion houses and designers so they are normally very expensive as compared to normal eyeglasses, with their price often being quoted in lakhs. The designer glasses often sport bold and bright colours, within their frames and have the logo or name of the fashion designer on one side of the frame. You can opt for these glasses if you want to make a style statement, while taking corrective measures to improve your vision at the same time.
