New Year, New You: 4 Reasons to Get A Fresh Pair Of Glasses For 2023

You’ve got your sour-dough recipe perfected and your TikTok channel developing. If you haven’t already, one of your New Year’s resolutions should be to get an eye test and update your prescription glasses. As we close out 2022 and ring in 2023, it’s the perfect time to reflect on all the fantastic things we’ve accomplished this year—and make resolutions for the new one.

Consider this a public service announcement for your eye test and new glasses.

Let’s break down four key reasons why it’s essential to get a freshpair of glasses in 2023:

1) You deserve it! After all, you wear your glasses daily; they play a significant role in how you see the world. So why not start the New Year with a new pair that makes you feel your best? It may be time to check out the range of frames available for prescription sunglasses as we get into summer. Treat yourself to a new frame style. Doing something nice for yourself can be simple as new shades!


2)Does your prescription need updating? Your current glasses might affect yourvision more than you realize. For example, frames can warp over time, and lensescan become scratched, leading to eye fatigue and other vision problems. On theother hand, an updated prescription, new frame styles for comfort, and new coatings for glare or reflections from digital devices could be just what your busy, hardworking eyes need.


3)It’s time for a style makeover! The latest style trends are about minimalismand retro vibes, with translucent colours, and flattering shapes. So if you’re stillrocking those thick plastic frames from 1998, it might be time for an update. But, of course, presenting yourself in a new light can be about something other thanreinventing the ‘fashion wheel.’ Even in our basic ‘Low Gap’ package, you canchoose two spectacle frames–why not check out the wide variety of frameoptions we have on display?

4) You could save money! Island Optical offers No & Low gap packages for health fund members—all you need is your full yearly entitlement available for Optical Extras. As we often say, “if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.” Unfortunately, your health fund does accrue or build up. It will reset before January 1st, 2023. Time is running out. And remember, with Island Optical, you can get a bulk bill eye test! So why not take advantage of that and get a fresh set of specs that look great and make you feel fabulous?
