Even though your eyeglasses may seem to be in proper working order, there may be several signs that it’s time for a new set of frames. The first and most obvious reason to spring for a new set of eyeglass frames is if your prescription has changed. If your prescription changes, you may only need a new set of lenses and can keep the frames themselves. But this may not always be the case. For instance, if you bought a pair of readymade reading glasses, you will need to replace the entire pair of eyeglasses. Also, if your prescription changes and requires you to purchase a set of multifocal lenses, you will also need a new set of (typically larger) frames.
Frames will also experience normal wear and tear as hinges wear out, joints weaken, and scratches appear on them. There are instances where you can take your set of frames in for adjustments or fixes. But if you feel you are constantly taking your frames in to be adjusted, it’s probably time for a new pair. A less dire reason to change your frames can be a change in frame styles. Sizes and shapes of frames have changed drastically over the past few years, and if you are still sporting a set of eyeglasses from the 1990s you may be surprised at the new frames available today.
