The Beginner's Guide to Buying Your First Pair of Eyeglasses

Are you a newbie looking to buy your first pair of frames? But you’re not quite sure how to go about it… No need to fret because we’ve got you covered.

Buying eyeglasses is a big deal; they not only change the way your face looks but also help you see clearly. Hence, it is essential to make the right purchase when buying your first pair. With a wide selection to choose from, finding what works best for you can get a bit overwhelming. But there are ways to filter through the bulk of options in front of you – we’re here to show you just how to do that.

Doctor’s Orders 

Be sure to have your prescription updated before making a purchase. A visit to the eye doctor for an eye exam will help you get the right updated prescription so you can buy eyeglasses that will cater to exactly what you need.  

A Day in the Life

What does your everyday look like? Are you constantly on your feet and on the move? Or are you set up in a comfortable office space? Either way, your daily activities should be considered when buying eyeglasses. The frame size and shape will depend heavily on your activity levels, so you might want to consider frames that work well with your lifestyle. 

Money on My Mind

Setting a budget is important while making any purchase, and it’s no different when it comes to buying eyeglasses. You’ll find frames in various price ranges, so you need to decide what best suits your budget. But do keep in mind that you’re making a good investment by purchasing high-quality glasses that’ll be beneficial to your eye health. Grab a pair that is of good quality without breaking the bank. 

The Two F’s

Be mindful of the fit and the frame style. Choose between rimmed, rimless, or semi-rimmed in acetate or metal materials at your convenience. As for the fit, choose what is the most comfortable for you; the glasses shouldn’t slide down your nose or pinch your nose and ears – lightweight frames are your safest bet to ensure there’s no pressure on your ears and nose bridge. 

Lens Love

The right lens design (single vision, zero power, progressive or bifocals), paired with the lens material (which aligns with your comfort and lifestyle), topped off with the lens coating to add longevity to your eyeglasses, is the key to buying your perfect pair.

Framing your Face

Pick a frame that flatters your face shape. If you want more info on which frames will work best for your face, check out our blog on How to Pick the Right Glasses for Your Face Shape.

Style it Up

And lastly, pick eyeglasses that compliment your style. You have a plethora of colors, designs and styles to pick from, so choose the one the truly portrays the real you.

A Mama's Boy's Love for His Mother

Vicci™ Eyewear was inspired by a son’s love for his mother and his passion for fashion.

David Abramovici, the Founder of Vicci™ Eyewear, came from a family of artisans dedicated to craftsmanship since the 1920s.

David recalls that when his mother was around 65 years old, she would always ask him to stop by the local pharmacy to pick up some generic readers.

He would spend at least 20 minutes every time he went there, just standing in front of a rack full of tacky, ugly readers. It was difficult for him to choose a "nice" design that he thought would look good on his mother.

His mother enjoyed attending events and spending money on her dresses and accessories. Unfortunately, the readers are often underwhelming, and she was embarrassed to ever be seen wearing them. Like most women, she'd usually hide it in her lovely purse and would always look around before using them to read the menu or bill.

David wondered why there weren’t more choices for high-quality and fashionable custom readers for older women like his mother. Something she’d actually love to wear and be proud to be seen wearing.

And that’s when it hit him!
