Your optician may also observe your physical behaviour. For example: do you tilt your head slightly? How does your posture change when you switch your gaze from mid-distance to something close up? Your facial shape is also quite important for fitting your glasses. Only by performing a comprehensive analysis is it possible for your optician to provide you with an optimum consultation and to precisely tailor the lens design to match your visual needs.
Keep the following rule of thumb in mind: the more your optician knows about your visual habits, wishes and expectations, the better they can advise you. So be ready to share a little bit about yourself.
Our eyes are our most important sense organ. And since each eye is as unique as a fingerprint, it requires a customised visual analysis at your optometrist.
