Eyeglasses FAQs

If you experience blurry vision, it can make everyday tasks like reading or driving difficult. At Optics Soho in Riverview and Tampa, FL, we provide eye exams to learn more about your condition and various treatments, such as eyeglasses, to help you see clearly. Before scheduling your appointment, take a look at some frequently asked questions about eyeglasses below:


How Often Do I Need an Eye Exam for Glasses?

Routine eye exams are important for your eye health overall. When you have blurry vision and need glasses, these exams become even more important. You should have an eye exam every year or possibly more often if recommended. They let our optometrists detect any eye diseases or conditions early and provide you with prompt treatment that will preserve your vision.

Why Is an Updated Prescription Important?

Whether you wear reading glasses or prescription glasses for nearsightedness, having an up-to-date prescription is crucial. Your vision may change over time. It can become blurrier as you get older, resulting in the need for a stronger prescription. Regular eye and vision exams ensure that you receive glasses that correct your vision so you can see clearly.

What Types of Specialized Eyeglasses Are Available?

If you have eyestrain from looking at digital screens, you might benefit from wearing blue light blocking glasses. These glasses protect your eyes from the effects of staring at screens. Along with that, progressive lenses help you see at different distances. You might need these lenses due to vision changes that occur as you age. At Optics Soho, we offer a variety of eyeglasses, such as reading glasses, blue light blocking glasses, and progressive lenses.

How Do I Choose the Right Eyeglasses?

Our optometrists can help you select the right lenses, such as corrective lenses for astigmatism or nearsightedness. We also carry a wide range of styles and designs to choose from. We’ll recommend the style and frame that will suit your vision and personality. The right glasses can enhance your appearance, while also improving your eyesight.
