STEP 6: Eyeglass Prescription

Your final eyeglass prescription will be given to you based on your needs. We're advocates for what is called "task-specific" eyewear. It's one of the reasons you were questioned about your visual demands during your eye examination.  For those who work on computers, for example, having eyeglasses designed to reduce glare and allow you to see clearly from an appropriate distance can help reduce eye strain and tiredness. They can even help reduce pain in your neck and back caused by having to tip your head back with your bifocals. Other types of task-specific eyeglasses include those for hobbies, such as reading, sewing, or playing sports.
