Our optical departments at Vision Centers of Long Island and Queens take pride in offering top quality, high fashion frames and the latest in lens technology to patients with all different budgets and price ranges.
If you are getting glasses for the first time or changing your prescription, please allow two to three weeks for your eyes to adjust to the new lenses. Many times, our patients will complain of mild dizziness, headaches, or even slight nausea while their eyes adjust to their new glasses, but all of these symptoms are normal. If they persist however, please contact our Bay Shore eyeglass store. Often times, our patients will put off updating their optical prescription, which means for months, their eyes have adjusted to using a weaker prescription and not seeing clearly. When their prescription is finally updated, it may seem as though their vision is “too perfect,” their optical prescription “too strong,” but given a couple of weeks, your eyes will adjust to the higher lenses prescribed by your Bay Shore optometrist at Vision Center.
When you do need a new optical prescription that doesn’t mean you’ll need a new eyeglass frame as well. Though many patients of Vision Center use the opportunity to getting new lenses to shop for new designer eyewear in our Bay Shore optical store, we can often reuse your current frames. Depending on the kind of frame and the condition, our opticians can asses their suitability for reuse. Metal eyeglass frames normally have a two-year life span, but new eyeglass materials have increased the longevity of eyewear products, so reusing your frames may be an option.
