At the eye doctor: it’s all about trust!

When it comes to buying the right glasses, the expertise of your eye care professional is vital

Unfortunately, eyeglasses are still frequently seen as a necessary evil: we notice that we cannot see as well as we used to, go for an eye test  and then have the appropriate glasses fitted by an eye care professional. This takes time and money. And sometimes when we actually receive our new glasses we are not totally satisfied with the result.

Our eyes are our most important sensory organ. Poor vision impairs our quality of life and can even pose a hazard, like in traffic or at work. Regrettably, the need for good vision is often underestimated.

Glasses are unique for everyone. Before production, no one knows for certain how well they will actually be able to see or how comfortable their new glasses will be in everyday life. Demos and the insertion of the right lenses in the trial frame by your eye care professional may give you an initial impression of the quality of vision you will have once your glasses are finished, but you still have to wait until they are made to see the final result.

It is vital for your eye care professional to recommend the best possible product for your personal vision problem, habits and, of course, budget. In other words, the work of an eye doctor - like that of any other doctor – is a matter of trust. We at ZEISS would like to give you a few tips here on BETTER VISION, about what preparations you should make before going to your eye doctor and how you can ensure that you receive the right advice. Our goal is to ensure that you enjoy the same natural vision with your new eyewear as you did before you needed glasses.
