Sunglasses and Prescription Frames Fitting and Correction in New York City


Make Your Frames Fit Better

Most people don't put much thought into choosing a pair of sunglasses. Usually, their decision process boils down to aesthetics. And this is where the problems come in. If your sunglasses don't fit right, you risk more than the embarrassment of a fashion faux pas. Not only can ill-fitting sunglasses cause discomfort, they can also offer less protection. Your comfort, health and satisfaction are important to us at EuroOptica. That is why we offer fast, quality glasses fitting services in Manhattan, New York. Simply bring your favorite frames to one of our two convenient locations at 280 Columbus Ave (UWS) and 1249 3rd Ave (UES) and let us do our best to carefully fit and adjust your glasses.

When choosing optical frames, it's important to prioritize style and optimal visual clarity. But comfort is just as important. Considering that eyeglasses are worn every day, often for extended periods of time, a proper fit is essential for effortless wear and unrestricted vision. It's important to make sure your glasses fit perfectly and are properly adjusted by an optician to avoid serious potential problems. Our opticians are committed to staying abreast of the latest advances in eyewear technology and industry trends to ensure our customers receive the highest quality care and access to innovative eyewear solutions. Whether you need a comprehensive eye exam, assistance with frame selection, or precision adjustments to your eyewear, our opticians are here to help.

The Significance of Correctly Fitting Glasses

Ill-fitting eyewear can put pressure on the temples or bridge of the nose, causing headaches, especially when worn for long periods of time. The strain caused by ill-fitting frames can contribute to tension headaches and general discomfort. Eyeglasses that are not properly aligned with the eyes or have the wrong prescription lenses can cause eye strain. This can lead to symptoms such as blurred vision, double vision, dry eyes, and difficulty focusing, especially when reading or using digital screens.

Frames that sit too high or too low on your face, or have lenses that are not properly centered, can affect visual clarity. This can lead to distorted vision, difficulty reading or recognizing objects, and an increased risk of accidents, especially when driving or doing activities that require clear vision. Ill-fitting eyewear can also cause skin irritation and redness, especially around the nose pads and behind the ears. This can cause discomfort and even skin allergies or dermatitis with prolonged wear.

When should you adjust your frames?

Here are some signs that indicate it's time to visit EuroOptica and have your frames adjusted by a qualified optician:

  • Slipping - Your glasses frequently slide down your nose or feel loose on your face.
  • Uneven Pressure - You can see pressure points on your nose, behind your ears, or on your temples.
  • Crooked Alignment - Your frames appear crooked or uneven on your face. 
  • Vision Disturbances - You experience blurred vision, headaches, or eye strain while wearing your eyewear.
  • Lenses not centered - The lenses in your frames are not centered on your eyes or appear to be off-center.

Regularly checking the fit of your frames and scheduling adjustments as needed can help maintain optimal comfort and performance. Overall, if you experience any discomfort, visual disturbances, or changes in fit with your frames, it's best to consult a qualified optician for professional adjustments. At EuroOptica, we have the expertise and tools to evaluate your frames and make the necessary changes to ensure a comfortable and accurate fit.

Precise Adjustments

Precise adjustments for sunglasses and optical frames are critical for optimal comfort, vision clarity, and long-term wear. Here's how our qualified opticians make precise adjustments:

  • Frame evaluation: EuroOptica's opticians begin by carefully evaluating the fit and alignment of the frames on your face (the position of the bridge, temples, and nose pads).
  • Fit adjustment: The optician will adjust the fit of your frames to your unique facial contours and preferences. 
  • Nose pad adjustment: The optician will adjust the nose pads to ensure they sit securely on the bridge of your nose without causing discomfort or slippage.
  • Temple arm alignment: The optician aligns the temples of your eyewear so they sit parallel to your face and distribute pressure evenly behind your ears. 
  • Temple tip adjustment: The optician adjusts the tips of the eye sockets so that they fit smoothly around your ears for maximum comfort.
  • Lens positioning: Opticians verify that the lenses are properly centered in the frame and properly aligned with your eyes. 
  • Final Inspection: Once adjustments are made, our experts conduct a final inspection to ensure that the frames fit comfortably and securely. 

If your glasses cannot be corrected, our eyewear stylists will help you choose a new frame from our incredible selection of designer eyewear and sunglasses.

Fitting is done to ensure that your glasses fit comfortably and securely on your face. Proper adjustment can improve the comfort, stability, and visual clarity of your glasses.

It's recommended that you have your glasses adjusted whenever you experience discomfort, slippage, or changes in fit. In addition, periodic adjustments may be necessary if your frames settle or if you experience significant weight loss or gain.

Eyewear adjustments are typically performed by a qualified optician who has the expertise and tools to make precise adjustments to your frames for optimal fit and comfort.

Common adjustments include nose pad adjustments to ensure proper fit on the bridge of the nose, temple arm adjustments to evenly distribute pressure behind the ears, and temple tip adjustments to improve comfort and stability.

The time it takes to fit eyewear can vary depending on the complexity of the adjustments needed and the availability of the optician. In most cases, adjustments can be completed relatively quickly, often within a few minutes.

While minor adjustments such as tightening screws or gently bending temple arms may be possible at home, it's generally recommended that major adjustments be made by a professional to avoid damage to your frames.

It's a good idea to have your glasses adjusted periodically, especially if you experience discomfort or notice a change in fit. Some opticians recommend that you have your glasses examined every six months to ensure optimal comfort and performance.
