 In Eye Care

As the costs of healthcare increase you will suddenly realize the costs of eyewear have increased as well. You can easily find yourself paying more than what you had in budget for a new pair of eyeglasses. To help you with this dilemma we at Utah Valley Eye Center in Provo have provided you some tips to help you in saving on the cost of eyeglasses.


Do your Research

Before you go in for you eye appointment it is a good idea to do some research about common vision problems, proper eyewear, and eye accessories. Having a good knowledge base on what you may encounter at your eye appointment will help you in making informed decisions on what kind of eye wear you may need, frames that suit your needs, and add-ons that could be beneficial or better left off.


Talk to your Doctor

The doctors at Utah Valley Eye Center in Provo can easily help you in receiving the right kind of glasses for your particular prescription. They will know best what kind of frames and lenses will work best for your unique lifestyle. Ask the doctor to measure what’s called your pupillary distance or PD (the distance between the center of each of your pupils) and include it on your prescription. You’ll need the PD (two for multifocal lenses) if you decide to order lenses online.


Explore Frame Options

You will have a variety of frames to choose from at Utah Valley Eye Center. It is always a good idea to try on a variety of frames and compare the prices of each. You should be able to find a pair that work best for your style, price, and prescription. If you don’t find what you are looking for, you have the option of ordering frames online. Just make sure you receive all the information you may need from you doctor before ordering.


Don’t Pay for Unnecessary Add-Ons

When purchasing your eyewear you may have the option for a variety of add-ons. Scratch resistant and transitioning lenses sound tempting, but could cost you extra. Make sure you do your research on what add-ons you really need and which ones you could live without.
