Life Is Clear With A New Pair of Eyeglasses

I have been wearing my new two pairs of prescription Transitions Lenses eyeglasses over the past couple of months.  I had absolutely no idea how poor my vision was until I went to the optometrist office for an eye exam.  The last time I had my eyes examined was years ago, which made me realize how easy it is to neglect our vision when we have a busy life. Don’t wait too long to get your eyes examined, especially if you’re over the age of 40, or have medical conditions (e.g., diabetes) that can impact your vision health.

The Perks of Wearing Eyeglasses:

The Obvious:  Clearer Vision

As soon as I wore my new pair of eyeglasses, I could clearly see signs, images, people (my children!) and details that I just couldn’t fully appreciate before.  I no longer have to squint (which has given me a few wrinkles between my eyes) to see better.  Best of all, I no longer pass right by people I know at the mall or on the streets — I can recognize them from afar!

Safer Driving

With my distance eyeglasses I can see exit signs clearly and not get lost because I couldn’t read the sign.  Even my night vision is better with eyeglasses.  I’m driving safer and more confidently these days.

Less Strain on My Eyes & Less Headaches

I spend a lot of time in front of the computer, which results in headaches from eye strain.  Ever since I’ve been wearing proper eye wear, my eyes feel rested and the headaches are gone.

A Pair of Sunglasses

Transitions lenses adapt with the level of sunlight that hits the lens.  The lenses become darker and act as sun glasses. When I go outside, I not only can see better, but I’m also protecting from the sun.

A New Look!
Many people fear getting eyeglasses because they worry about they’ll look.  I was able to choose two frames from a wide range of options, and I absolutely love the way I look with both pairs.  I look professional, but not too formal — just the way I like it.  The best judges of my new look are my children, who have enthusiastically expressed they like the way I look with eyeglasses!
