Replacing your glasses periodically will help you continue to enjoy clear vision. Your Wyomissing, PA, optometrists, also serving Reading, PA, Dr. Darryl Greenwood, Dr. Mervet Hachem, and Dr. Rachel Simpson of Linsey Eyecare, can help you decide if it's time for a new pair of eyeglasses.

When you should replace your eyeglasses

Eyeglasses should usually be replaced every one to three years. Your personal replacement schedule will depend on several factors, including:

  • Prescription Changes: Even small changes in your prescription can make a big difference if you're nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. If things aren't quite as crisp and clear as they once were, or you've noticed that you've started to squint when reading, it's time to pay a visit to your Wyomissing, PA, eye doctor. During yearly comprehensive eye examinations, your eye doctor will check your vision and give you a prescription for new eyeglasses if needed.
  • Comfort: Wear and tear may have an impact on the way your eyeglasses fit and feel. If you're glasses no longer feel comfortable, you might avoid wearing them, which can lead to headaches and eyestrain. Choosing a new pair of frames that fit your face perfectly will make wearing glasses a much more pleasant experience.
  • Lifestyle: If you spend a lot of time in the sun, it may make sense to upgrade to transition lenses. The lenses darken outdoors and lighten when you return indoors. Computer glasses may make working on the computer more comfortable. The glasses reduce glare, improve contrast, and are designed to offer clear vision at 22" to 26", the recommended distance between the eyes and a computer screen.
  • Changing Styles or Tastes: Frame styles change quickly. In fact, frames that were trendy just a year or two ago could quickly become unpopular. Whether your frames are outdated or you're ready for a change, replacing your eyeglasses can help you enhance your appearance.

I have been coming to Linsey Eyecare for years and have always had the best experience, specifically with eyecare and contact lenses.


The selection was everything I heard it was. Thanks for a great experience.
