Eyeglasses are more popular than ever!

 For a long time many individuals who have vision problems have turned to contacts to help their eyesight. However with all the new advances in both lenses and frames, eyeglasses have become really popular again. Not only do many people find eyeglasses more comfortable to wear than contacts but they are also more convenient.  No longer do you have to hassle with solutions and poorly fitting contacts. Instead you can just put your glasses on and go! The new types of metals used in frames help to make glasses so lightweight you can literally forget you are wearing them! You can find glasses with titanium frames, which make them fairly indestructible, as well as frames from form fitting metal. These new frames are incredibly comfortable while still being stylish. The opticians at Fox Chase Family Eye Care would love to show you all the choices available to you.

Many lenses have become much thinner and durable as well as light weight, even in the higher prescriptions. This can help to create glasses that are so light and easy to wear you might give up contacts all together. There are so many stylish options available to suit your face shape and enhance your natural looks you may find yourself picking out more than one pair. Don’t forget to ask your Fox Chase Family Eye Care team member to show you the many options we have available.
