How to look good in your glasses?

How to look good in your glasses? You’ve tried to embrace them as the fashion accessory — you really have.

Understanding your prescription

Understanding your prescription You’ve just had an eye exam, and your optometrist or ophthalmologist has given you a new glasses prescription, full of all the measurements you need to attain clear and comfortable vision. They may have told you you’re short or long-sighted, or that you have astigmatism, but when you look at your prescription, it doesn’t simply say “long-sighted”.
