It’s not uncommon for people that require prescription glasses to only own a single pair with their current prescription. Glasses can be expensive so it makes sense that an eyeglass wearer would only purchase one pair of glasses at a time. However, owning multiple pairs of prescription eyewear has several advantages.
Eyewear as fashion
Unlike our clothes, shoes, and even accessories, most people tend to wear the same pair of glasses every single day. Prescription glasses are a necessary part of life for many people, and yet, they are seen as just a necessity rather than a genuine fashion accessory. But, eyewear can be both a fashion accessory and a necessary part of life. Prescription glasses help the wearer see better and they can also accessorize an outfit or look, give off a particular fashion vibe, and even accent the wearer’s facial features.
We like to wear different clothes and experiment with different styles, so it makes sense that prescription eyewear is a part of that. Having multiple pairs of glasses in different styles offers the wearer versatility in their style, whether it’s casual, formal, or in between. For a wearer that wants a funky or adventurous eyewear style some of the time, it makes sense to own a more conservative pair for more buttoned-down occasions.
Eyewear for every activity
Different activities may require different types of glasses. For instance, people that play sports may want a pair of glasses designed to be safe and sturdy during athletic activity. There are also safety glasses for certain jobs and computer glasses that cut down on blue light glare from screens to reduce eyestrain and headaches. Many people choose to own a separate pair of sunglasses for regular outdoor activities and driving. In these instances, owning multiple pairs of glasses serves a particular purpose beyond just fashion and convenience, and keep your other eyewear safe from damage from sports and other activities.
A spare pair
Chance are that if you wear glasses, they have either been broken or lost at some point. With only a single pair of glasses on hand, losing them or breaking them isn’t just inconvenient — it can grind your life to a halt. Getting a new pair can take days, and in the meantime, your stuck wearing an old prescription or nothing at all. Owning multiple pairs of glasses can eliminate this issue completely.
