Glasses -yes: Opticians take an ophthalmologist's prescription and make lenses to fit in your choice of eyeglass frames. In a few jurisdictions they can prescribe and fit contacts but most cannot do this. In many areas they can take a prescription for contacts and apply them to the eye, or sell the lenses based solely on that prescription. ...Read more
When adjusting plastic glasses frames, do you bend the ear pieces straight down? Or do you curve them inwards?
Yes: The second store will probably not be thrilled about this but they will put the lenses in based upon your up to date prescription. Why not get the whole thing in one place? ...Read more
Change the glass: Frames are just to hold the corrective lenses in place, so changing the frame will have no effect on the power. If you find an eyeglass frame you like, an optical shop - with the proper prescription - can replace the old lenses with your prescription to fit the frames you like. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unlikely: An optician will make your glasses for you. If you have a frame you love, you can have new lenses inserted into it. But lenses are fabricated by using the old lens already in the frame as a template to cut the new lens to fit. If you just have a frame, it is very complex to put a lens in with the proper fit and most optical shops will not do this. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

When going to a eye specialist to have an eyeglasses made, is it possible to bring my own eyeglass frame to use?
Yes: Yes, in my practice we need to inspect them and then have the client release liability for the frame and any possible defects that we can not detect but if the frames are in adequate shape we will agree to place lenses in them for you. Some dispensaries will not let you use your own frames. They do not know the contdition of them and do not want the responsability if they break, and lost income. ...Read more
One of my pairs of eyeglasses frames got bent b/c somebody sat on them. Now the right lens is closer to the eye than it should be. Is this harmful?
I meant that my left eyeglasses lens is closer to my left eyeball than my right glasses lens to my right eyeball. Is this harmful to eyes or vision?
Yes: At night, your pupils dilate. This (along with a few other changes that occur at night) may cause a temporary change in your glasses prescription leading to "night myopia" or slight nearsightedness at night. This makes many people feel as though they have "bad night vision" but really a small glasses prescription to be worn at night particularly while driving can help night vision. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A balance: For reading, there is a natural decline in focusing ability throughout life that becomes more problematic between the mid-40's and early 50's. The eye is comfortable with focusing about half of its full ability, so using reading glasses that do part of the work while the eyes do the rest maintains a comfortable balance. Trying to force reading without help leads to more problems like eyestrain. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
