We have compiled some of the frequently-asked questions that we hear from our patients in regards to eyeglasses.


Do I have to continue regular eye exams even after I get my prescription eyeglasses?

Over the years your vision will go through changes, which of course means that one prescription throughout your life does not work and will lead to you wearing an incorrect prescription. Even small changes can cause strain to the eyes and headaches as well as blurry vision. It is also important to keep up with routine visits with your eye doctor so you can be checked for dangerous diseases like glaucoma and others that can cause permanent damage to your vision.

I have an active lifestyle. Are eyeglasses right for me?

Besides fitting you for the correct prescription glasses to help you see as clearly as possible, Family Vision Clinic Farmington can offer you eyewear choices tailored to a variety of activities. We believe your vision and eye care should work with your personal habits and routine. While you are in our office for your eye exam, we will gladly show you our wide range of frames and specialty glasses as well as various types of contact lenses.

What if my child does not want to wear eyeglasses?

At Family Vision Clinic Farmington, we have a history of providing quality eye care for every member of the family. We also carry an extensive list of eyewear brands to appeal to all ages and offer the opportunity to try on a variety of stylish frames.

Won’t my glasses cause a glare?

Our eye doctor can recommend eyeglasses with coated lenses to specifically address computer vision. They will work to diminish the glare and cut down on eye strain and stress caused by looking at computer screens for hours each day.
