Glasses Q & A

Cascade Vision Center

How do I know if I need eyeglasses?

Over 150 million Americans use corrective eyewear like glasses or contact lenses. Vision changes are normal and occur at different life stages, like during childhood or after the age of 40. You may need glasses if you’re experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Squinting
  • Blurred, double, or hazy vision
  • Tired or strained eyes
  • Distorted vision
  • Difficulty seeing at night


Additionally, if you find it difficult to focus your vision during daily activities like driving, viewing presentations, or reading, it’s time to schedule an eye exam at Cascade Vision Center.

How do glasses correct my vision?

To determine which type of vision correction you need, your optometrist tests for specific types of refraction errors, including:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Presbyopia
  • Astigmatism


After determining your vision problem, the team at Cascade Vision Center fits your eye for the particular lens that corrects your vision.

If you’re nearsighted, you’re fitted for glasses that focus objects at a distance. If you experience farsightedness, you’re recommended for part-time reading glasses, bifocals, or multifocals. People with presbyopia are fitted with progressive lenses, and people with astigmatism are fitted with special lenses.

Your lenses are tailored to your specific eye needs to correct your vision problems. Cascade Vision Center uses high-quality, digital freeform lenses that are fortified to provide impact and scratch resistance for maximum durability. For people who are constantly on a phone or computer, Cascade Vision Center can add blue-light blocking and glare reduction technology to your lenses to reduce computer vision syndrome and eye strain, and the team also offers prescription polarized sunglasses.

How do I make sure I choose the right frames?

Once you have your lenses, choosing the right eyeglass frames can be intimidating since there are so many choices available. At Cascade Vision Center, you can find the glasses that are most comfortable to fit you and your lifestyle.
