Prescription Glasses: Things to Consider Before You Buy

Prescription Glasses: Things to Consider Before You Buy

Think of shopping for prescription lenses as an investment in your eyes. There are many considerations when deciding which pair is perfect for you. While your eye doctor determines the actual prescription, additional factors such as lifestyle, quality, safety, size, and personal preference are an important part of the decision-making process. 

To narrow down the type of prescription glasses to buy, consider your daily activities. Growers working under optically harmful grow room lights will have vastly different prescription needs than pilots who fly thousands of feet in the air each day. Method Seven is the first and only company to make prescription grow room glasses, and also offers best-in-class prescription aviator glasses for pilots. Prescription grow room glasses provide color correction and are optimized for each major grow room light spectrum, including HPS, LED, CMH, LEC, and MH. Prescription pilot glasses are designed to keep your eyes cool and focused on long flights.

Quality and safety are also critical factors to consider when choosing the perfect pair of prescription shades. Protection against harmful UV rays from the sun, and a high level of clarity, both improve the safety and accuracy of whatever you may be doing. All Method Seven prescription glasses supply 100% UV protection and pilot prescriptions guard against infrared heat to enhance safety and comfort for those long flights. Notch filtering technology allows for improved contrast to sustain natural colors while enhancing visual clarity. Prescription pilot lenses have a Visual Light Transmission (VLT) of 24%, which is ideal for compromised vision that requires a higher amount of visible light. Whatever prescription glasses you decide to purchase, you should make functionality and safety your top priority.

Finally, tap in to your personal style and select a pair of glasses that works perfectly for your face. Making sure your prescription glasses fit your head properly and make you feel confident when you wear them. Method Seven provides fashion-forward prescription grow room glasses in styles like wayfarer and cat-eye, as well as prescription pilot glasses in the classic aviator style historically known and loved by pilots. Our prescription glasses are designed in a variety of frames for larger and smaller faces, men and women—some even feature tangle free nose pads to avoid snagging your hair! Ensuring that your prescription glasses meet your personal needs will allow you to reap the greatest benefit from your new pair of glasses.

While shopping for prescription glasses may seem like a daunting task, keeping these factors in mind will help you make the best decision. Now it’s time to pull the trigger on prescription glasses that safely and reliably assist you in your daily activities, but also show off the style that is uniquely you!
