Benefits of Eye Glasses You May Not Have Considered Before

It is well known that eye glasses will help you see more clearly. If your vision is poor, eye glasses are a great way to be able to see well again. Did you know that there are many other benefits to wearing eye glasses? Some of these benefits are:

  • Eye Protection – Eye glasses will help to protect your eyes from accidental injury. They will help to protect your eyes from drying winds and dust, which can cause severe eye irritation in many individuals. A special film can be added to your glasses to help filter out harmful UV rays.

Benefits of Eye Glasses You May Not Have Considered Before

  • Cost Efficient – Unlike contact lenses, eye glasses can be used for years. If your prescription changes, new lenses can be placed in your current frames.
  • Comfortable and Convenient – Eye glasses will be fitted to fit your specific face so that they are comfortable to wear. They are also easy and convenient to put on and take off whenever necessary.
  • Fashionable – Eye glasses come in thousands of designs, shapes, and sizes. It isn’t uncommon to own several styles of eye glasses to go with different outfits or moods. If you desire, you can make a great fashion statement with your eye glasses. If making a statement doesn’t sound like you, then there are less noticeable eye glass options.

If you are in need of new eye glasses, lenses, or just want a new look, come by our office at Dr. Miller & Dr. Tilis Family Optometry. We are happy to help you find your next pair of glasses.

Common Vision Problems to be Aware Of

If you have ever experienced issues with your eyes, then you know how inconvenient and sometimes scary it can be. Vision problems need to be addressed by a qualified optometrist as soon as possible. The health of your eyes is extremely important. To help you better understand and possibly determine if what you are experiencing is serious or not, we are going to discuss four common vision problems.

Common Vision Problems to be Aware Of

  • Farsightedness (Hyperopia) – When you are looking at objects that are close, they will appear to look blurry. You may also experience that both near and far objects look blurry.
  • Nearsightedness (Myopia) – Distant objects will appear to be blurry. Your vision of up-close objects may be very good.
  • Detached Retina – With this vision problem you will notice flashing lights. Sometimes you will also see black floaters. Cover one eye at a time and compare your vision between your eyes. If you notice these changes in your vision it is time to see an optometrist ASAP.
  • Cataracts – This vision problem will develop over time and can be hard to self-identify sometimes. Cataracts can be detected during an annual eye exam. Some common signs of cataracts are, needing brighter light to read, decrease in vision during nighttime driving, hazy vision, and colours looking faded.

There are many more vision problems you may encounter. It is extremely important that you see an optometrist with any change in vision or other new vision problems. Here at Dr. Miller & Dr. Tilis Family Optometry, we know how important your vision is to you. We are happy to help you with all of your vision problems.

Choosing the Right Eyeglasses for Face Shape

When it comes to eyeglasses, so many of us need them for corrective reasons. There are also some people who like to wear glasses as a style accessory. No matter which group you fall into, you want to look your best with your eyeglasses, and a lot of this has to do with the shape of your face. At Dr. Miller & Dr. Tilis Family Optometry, we have a few suggestions for pairing the right pair of frames with your core face shape.

Choosing the Right Eyeglasses for Face Shape

• Heart- A heart-shaped face has a very narrow or pointy chin with wide cheekbones and forehead. Frames that are shaped with emphasis on the bottom of the frame will appear to drag your face downwards, so choose rectangular or oval frames.

• Square- Because your square features are accentuated by a strong jawline, it’s best to put a little visual interest to your face. Choose rimless or semi-rimless glasses for some great accenting.

• Oval- If you have an oval face- consider yourself lucky! Most types of frames are going to look great on you. Feel free to choose glasses that are a fun colour or pattern.

• Round- To balance out your round face, choose frames that are more angular. Frames that come in a square, rectangular or semi-square are going to look nice.

• Diamond- Diamond face shapes have very prominent cheekbones. If you have ever wanted to rock a pair of horn-rimmed glasses, the diamond shape is most able to pull these off! You can also look for circular rims or rectangular, but stay away from square rims, which will pull your cheekbones inward in an unflattering way.

If you have questions about eyeglasses and which shape to choose, we are happy to help you. Come in and see us today!

The Best Ways to Clean Your Eyeglasses

Many people wear eyeglasses on a regular basis. Around half the population requires eyeglasses to correct their vision, and it can be very irritating to have smudges, dirt or dust stuck on your glasses causing eye strain and other problems. Dirty eyeglasses are a problem for more than vision strain but can harbour bacteria near your eyes and nose, which are both key entrances for sickness to enter the body. Here at the office of Dr. Miller & Dr. Tilis Family Optometry, we would like to help ensure that your eyeglasses are clean for your health and your convenience.

The Best Ways to Clean Your Eyeglasses

Cleaning your eyeglasses doesn’t need to be a terribly time-consuming process, especially when it’s done on a regular basis. The most important thing about cleaning your eyeglasses is to use the right materials, and we don’t mean the end of your sleeve! Cleaning your eyeglasses should be done with a lint-free cloth or microfiber, since these are not going to make small scratches in the glass of your eyeglasses. Furthermore, using materials that are approved for glasses are best, but for a deeper cleaning, a small drop of dish soap can be used. When you are cleaning your glasses as well as your lenses, be sure to concentrate on the areas that touch your face, such as the nose pieces and frames.

If you ever have questions about how to safely clean your eyeglasses, please don’t hesitate to ask us here at Dr. Miller & Dr. Tilis Family Optometry for guidance.
