Each type and style of designer frame has its own cost to consider. When you’re going over your choice of eyeglasses frames, we can let you know what the costs are as well. Note that the cost of the frame is separate from the cost of the lenses. As such, when figuring out how much you’ll pay for your frames, you’ll have to think carefully about how it will affect the overall cost of your glasses.

Are Designer Frames Worth It?

Designer frames offer many benefits you won’t see with generic frames. There are several advantages that make them well worth the price:

  • Frames from a reputable brand are typically made out of the highest grade of materials, making them more durable than cheaper frames.
  • Many notable brands offer warranties, making it easier to repair or replace your glasses if something happens to them.
  • Designer frames are made with a high level of care and attention to detail, helping you look your absolute best.

Can Insurance Help Pay for Designer Frames?

Vision insurance sets aside a certain amount of money each year to help pay for glasses and contacts. This naturally includes the frames of the glasses, designer or otherwise. It’s important to remember that your insurance plan will only pay so much for eyewear, so you’ll have to pay any remaining cost out of pocket once the discount has been applied. If you’re not completely sure how vision insurance works, feel free to speak to our team. It’s also a good idea to contact your insurance company and ask about your available benefits before you start planning to buy new glasses.

Designer Frames FAQs

Some patients need a little extra help when it comes to picking designer frames that are just right for them. The team at EyeSmile Optometry & Dental Care of Belmont is dedicated to making sure that each patient gets glasses that they’re happy with. Individuals who are currently preparing for an upcoming appointment are invited to review the FAQs below to discover the answers to some of the questions that past patients have asked about designer frames.

Is It Bad to Wear Designer Glasses with an Old Prescription?

Generally speaking, it is best not to wear any type of glasses that have an outdated prescription. The exception is if the glasses in question are intended as a backup in case the patient’s current pair of glasses is lost or damaged. That being said, patients who want to keep the frames of older glasses may have the option of simply getting new lenses with the correct prescription; those who are interested in doing so are encouraged to let their optometrist know what their goals are.

Which Brand of Designer Frames is the Best One?

As one might expect, the answer to this question will not be exactly the same for every patient. Different frames come with different advantages. Choosing the one that is right for a particular patient depends heavily on their preferred style as well as any specific needs they might have.

When exploring choices for designer frames, patients can ask Dr. Ajoian what she recommends in their case. Dr. Ajoian is familiar with a wide range of brands, and she is more than happy to help interested patients explore each one’s pros and cons so that they can narrow down their options.

How is Buying Designer Glasses from an Optometrist Different from Buying Them Online?

Buying eyeglasses online may seem like the more convenient option. However, there are advantages to getting them through an optometrist. The most obvious benefit is simply having a professional directly involved with the process; it is easier to make informed decisions regarding eyewear when one is working with a knowledgeable optometrist who is ready to answer any questions that they might have.

Which Type of Designer Frame is the Right Choice for a Given Facial Shape?

If the patient has a round face, frames with angular rims may be a good fit for them. On the other hand, those with more square facial shapes might benefit from getting rounder frames. And if the patient’s facial shape happens to be an oval, a wide variety of frame styles could potentially match their appearance.

The team at EyeSmile Optometry & Dental Care of Belmont is prepared to help patients determine which type of designer frame is the right choice for them based on facial shape and any other factors that may be relevant.
