Why buy a 2nd pair of eyeglasses?

Our optical store has a fantastic collection of frames for all your visual needs!

A second pair of eyeglasses is not a luxury, it’s a true to life accessory! Besides the problem that you always forget where you put them, there’s a variety of reasons that make a strong case for buying extra frames. No matter why you need more glasses, check out our stylish optical collection at Eye Trends.

To help you select the perfect 2nd pair of eyeglasses, knowing your personal reasons for buying them is key to buying the right frames and lenses for your needs. Look through this list to identify your needs:

Reading glasses and computer glasses

If you’re over 40, you’re probably used to holding fine print far from your face to see it. Reading glasses are an easier, more efficient solution than constantly stretching your arm. And if you spend hours per day at the computer, we recommend buying a pair of customized computer glasses. They’ll protect your eyes from blue light, and relax your eye muscles with an enhanced view of the screen.

Match your look

Do you wear the same clothes every day? So why wear the same pair of frames every day? The bold, serious look you want to broadcast at work may not be the same fun and flirty look you want to show off after hours. If you love splashy colored frames, consider buying the same glasses in two colors to avoid clashing with your clothes. Pick a 2nd pair of eyeglasses to match your changing optic mood and wardrobe.

Stay safe with a second pair of glasses

If you need prescription glasses to see and they break, you don’t want to be left wandering around in a blurry world. The strain of focusing will lead to a migraine and eye fatigue, and you risk injury from bumping into unseen objects and/or tripping. A spare second pair of eyeglasses will ensure that you always have sharp, safe vision.

Sun protection and polarized lenses

Indoor glasses fulfill indoor tasks, but when you go outdoors – you need outdoor glasses. Sunglasses will protect your eyes from dangerous UV rays, as well as enhance your vision instead of being blinded by bright light. Make sunglasses your 2nd pair and keep them handy at all times. If you spend a lot of time behind the wheel of your car or boat, it’s wise to invest in a pair of polarized sunglasses for ultimate protection against glare. Polarized sunglasses block reflections from the sun that bounce off your windshield or the water.

See? Even if you don’t forget where you put your eyeglasses all the time, there are plenty of reasons to buy a second pair of glasses from our optical collection at Eye Trends.
