If you’re like most people, finding a pair of eyeglasses you like can be more like a nightmare than a dream. But luckily, that’s in the past. You don’t have to try on 85 pairs of eyeglasses before finding even one that’s passable, and you definitely shouldn’t settle for a pair you don’t absolutely love. What’s more, paying for your eyeglasses shouldn’t give you immediate buyer’s remorse. Instead, the process of how to find the right pair of glasses should be fun and positive. Here’s how it can be.
1. Go to the right place.
Here’s a secret - going to an eye care center that specializes in the latest lens materials, coatings, and frame shapes, and understands fit, can make all the difference in your eyeglass shopping experience. At Horizon, we offer patients access to the full-service, top quality Sharona Optical that operates within our space. We have opticians who are ABO/NCLE certified and/or Arizona State Licensed Opticians, but they also have between five and 25 years of experience. They understand the fit and function of eyeglasses, and how to find a pair you love.
2. Understand what complements your features.
Part of the headache of looking for eyeglasses is not knowing what actually looks good on you. You don’t want someone telling you that every pair you try on is perfect, because it won’t be. Instead, you need experienced professionals who understand how eyeglass frames can flatter your face, as well as the latest trends, so you can trust they’re advising you honestly. Our opticians know which eyeglasses look best on which face shapes, and which color of frames will be the most flattering for you, given your skin tone, hair color, and eye color. And they won’t stop until you fall in love with a pair of glasses that feels like it was made just for you.
3. Use an FSA or HSA to pay.
Once you’re in a pair of eyeglasses you adore, don’t let your bubble get burst by the price tag. Sharona Optical offers a wide range of designer and value-conscious styles, so we can work with any budget. But beyond this, we can also give you tips on how to pay. Are you wondering, “Can I use my HSA for glasses?” If so, the answer is yes! You can use HSA for glasses. Or, you can use a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to cover the costs of your eyeglasses. Either way, that means you can use pre-tax dollars to pay for your glasses. Now that’s a pretty good deal, right?
