I am almost certainly getting glasses at the end of the month, and I have NO IDEA how to choose glasses. Please advise!
- I will be wearing them for reading and screen work, so the vast majority of my waking time, ahahaha.
- I will have a very low strength prescription, which I think means the available choice will be huge.
Would it be terrible to buy a couple of cheap frames of very different design, and then go back in a few months when I have developed Opinions through usage? What even is the decision space? Shapes? Colours? Materials? Construction? What are the common buyer mistakes / obnoxious selling behaviours in the market? I've had very mild astigmatism in my right eye for years, and it has very slowly been worsening, and it has recently passed the threshold of "I am noticing this and it is annoying me on a daily basis". I am off to the optometrist for an up-to-date eye test and then some glasses. Ah the joys of approaching 40.
