Start Your Eyeglasses Search with An Eye Exam 

The first step in choosing eyeglasses is ensuring you have the right prescription. This entails scheduling an eye exam. Our Virginia Beach optometrist will test your eye health and visual acuity to ensure you have an accurate prescription for the new frames. Once you have an updated prescription, you can peruse our inventory of designer frames and lenses to find the right glasses for you.

What to Look for in Prescription Eyewear

When choosing new eyeglasses, we recommend considering factors such as appearance, lifestyle, function, and cost.


Choosing comfortable eyeglasses that enhance your appearance will give you a greater incentive to wear them. As eyeglass frames come in all sizes, shapes, and designs, we recommend looking for frames that match the shape of your face and complement your skin tone and the color of your hair and eyes. Take time to try on different designs to get an idea of how you look in each. Then choose what appeals to you most. We carry the latest in frame styles and designs for men, women, and children to make it easier for you to find just what you want and need. Whether you're looking for classic, trendy, or retro-styled frames, we have a wide selection to choose from.


Your lifestyle also plays a role in the frames you choose. If you're an outdoor person, we recommend you invest in durable frames with scratch-resistant lenses to safeguard your glasses against the elements and wear and tear. By choosing photochromic lenses that darken in the sun, your prescription eyeglasses can double as sunglasses when you're outdoors. On the other hand, if your glasses are going to be used more for school or office work, you may prefer a professional-looking frame design.


Your new eyeglasses should meet your visual needs. No matter how attractive the eyeglasses may be, they won't do you much good if they don't improve your vision. Your Virginia Beach optician will help you select frames and lenses suited to your prescription so you can enjoy optimal sight.
