How Often Should You Get New Glasses?

by SharonSwift 20 Oct 2022
How Often Should You Get New Glasses?

If you wear glasses, you know it's necessary to replace them with new lenses regularly. Because over time, your frames will wear out, accumulate dirt, deform or scratch, or even crack, and in some places will develop a patina, which will affect wearing comfort and protection. So it's important to know when to buy new glasses to make sure your eyes don't suffer any damage or discomfort.

How often should you get new glasses frames?

The frequency of changing glasses can depend on the individual's maintenance of the glasses and the quality of the frame. If the maintenance is good and the quality is well, it can take up to 3 years, and if the maintenance is not good or the quality is terrible. Ummm.. generally not more than 1 year. In total, your current glasses should last an average of one to three years. If you're not sure how often you should get new frames, consider replacing them after three years. Also, most opticians will recommend an eye exam every two years. Suppose, your prescription has changed dramatically. And your long-term use of outdated prescriptions can have many negative effects on your eyes. These may include: eye strain and various headaches, and, of course, your vision will deteriorate with it. So, I'd like to tell you, rather do one more eye exam than use an expired prescription, it's better to be safe than regret. However, there are no mandatory rules on how often prescription glasses need to be changed. If your vision has not changed and your glasses are in good condition, you may be able to keep the same pair of glasses for a long time.

Note: To increase the life of your frames, please take care of your glasses. Learn how to clean your glasses and store them in a container every night to reduce the chance of breakage. The better you handle your frames, the longer they will last. We have a blog post on how to clean your glasses: 3 Easy Ways to Clean Blue Light Glasses.a girl with glasses

What are the signs that you need new glasses?

5 Signs Your Eyeglasses Need a New Prescription

1. Blurred vision

If your experience sudden or occasional blurred vision accompanied by difficulty concentrating, you will need to renew your prescription. People with blurred vision often squint to bring objects into focus. This can cause headaches. Getting an updated prescription will solve this problem.

2. Tired eyes

If your eyes are tired or strained, you may be experiencing one of the most visible signs of vision changes. When the prescription is out of date, the eyes work harder than usual. People squint to focus on objects, which can strain the eyes.

So, people with tired eyes need to see an optometrist. A new prescription may be required.

3. Unable to see items up close

Many people wear reading glasses as they age. With glasses on, people can easily see objects up close. When people can no longer see objects up close, a new prescription is needed. People will notice that they are moving objects away from them while watching. This allows the eye to focus. Once the prescription is renewed, these people don't have to remove the items to see them.

4. Glasses are scratched

When glasses are new, it is easy to see through the lenses. However, when glasses get scratched and cause other hard-to-see damage over the years. If a prescription is no longer valid, people must see an optometrist to get a new prescription.

5. Difficulty cleaning glasses

Glasses often have extra features such as scratch resistance and UV protection. The extra coating will eventually break down. This makes it difficult to clean the glasses. It is important to replace hard-to-clean glasses. Wearing glasses can cause vision problems over time. Also, driving can become dangerous if the glasses are difficult to clean.
