Why It’s Worth Investing in Good Quality Eyewear

A cheap pair of glasses is only buying you time – it won’t be long before whatever led you to purchase eyewear in the first place catches up with you. On the other hand, selecting a pair of good quality eyewear will not only improve your vision, it will also protect your eyes and enhance your look. Because they’re built to last, premium glasses often come with warranties, too, giving you peace of mind.

Here’s what you’ll get when you invest in high quality eyewear.

Superior lenses

When you make the choice to visit an experienced optometrist and opt for premium glasses, you end up with the right prescription and better-quality lenses. They’ll correct your vision properly, improve your optics, offer resistance to scratches and reduce reflections.

Longer lasting glasses frames

Quality eyewear offers durable frames that are built to last. They are made of materials like stainless steel, titanium and acetate rather than cheap plastics and nickel. They’re also made with robust hinges which will stand up to daily wear and tear, and they’ll fit your face properly, so they won’t be sliding down or falling off. And if you end up dropping them, the glasses frames shouldn’t break as easily as cheaper materials do.

Sun protection

Good quality sunglasses provide UVA and UVB protection, shielding your eyes from the sun’s harsh rays. When unprotected, sun damage can lead to eye issues like cataracts and macular degeneration, which is why protective lenses are so important, especially in NZ’s strong sunshine. For superior sun protection as well as additional comfort and visibility in bright conditions, there’s nothing better than sunglasses with polarised lenses.

Enhanced comfort and aesthetic

Eyewear should fit like a glove. Your glasses frames should sit comfortably on the bridge of your nose and they shouldn’t pinch behind your ears. If it weren’t for the corrected vision, you’d hardly notice you were wearing them at all.

And the fit is only half the battle. If you’re going to wear your glasses regularly, you want them to look good, too. Reputable designer brands are attractive and stylish. You can choose an eye-catching pair that stands out or opt for ones that are sleek and minimal. Whatever you’re after, our optometrists can help you select premium eyewear that suit your unique look.
