Eyeglasses FAQs

Your eyeglasses say a lot about you. It is more than just having perfect vision, it is having a look you love. At Vista Eye Care in Las Cruces NM, our eye care professionals take the time to make sure it's not just about how well you can see, it's about how well you look. 


What should I consider when choosing eyeglasses?

Color and shape are essential when choosing eyeglasses. You should consider your skin tone and the shape of your face. The size of the glass is also important. Especially if you have progressive lenses or bifocals, you need to have enough surface to accommodate both vision corrections. 

Bifocals or progressive glasses?

One is not better than the other. It is a personal choice. Progressive lenses offer a wider range of close-up vision, and the vision feels more natural. Bifocals are, however, almost always more affordable. 

Transition lenses or sunglasses. Which works best?

Both transition lenses and sunglasses do what they were designed to do, which is to protect your eyes from harmful rays of the sun. The main benefit of transition lenses is that you only need to have one pair of glasses to serve both vision correction and protection. The disadvantage is that there is a certain amount of time for the lenses to transition, and you need to be a little patient. Another disadvantage of transition lenses is that when driving, the interior of the car may not trigger the transition.

What is the best material for eyeglasses?

Choosing eyeglasses is about more than just the style and the price. The material that they are constructed from is an essential component. You want your glasses to be durable, lightweight, and flexible. This makes titanium an excellent choice. Not only is it light and flexible, but it is also corrosive resistant. Plastic is also a popular choice since it is not only affordable, but it comes in so many different styles and colors.
