There was a time when eyewear was considered just a medical device. Today glasses are so much more.
Let’s have a look at how far we’ve come from the old ‘stigma days’ of wearing glasses! Technology has revolutionised lens features, and fashion trends have made glasses an awesome accessory and a defining personality statement.
Sight of the times
Did you know that Myopia, or near-sightedness, is on the rise due to our digital lifestyle?
Many young people are wearing frames, not only for a fashion statement but because staring at a computer or phone screen for long periods has damaged their eyes!
Take a screen break
In 1975, the Microsoft dream of having a computer on every desk and in every home is now a reality. But spending too much time in front of the screen has its consequences.
Blue block lens technology was developed to help reduce the harmful effects of sitting at a computer for unavoidable long periods of time.
However, limiting your screen time is the best and easiest solution.
We’ve all seen those music videos with trendy people wearing different coloured lenses.
Yes, they look uber-cool, but they can also help you see clearer.
Yellow lenses are often used by indoor sports athletes, skiers and cyclists.
The yellow colour is great for low lighting conditions and enhances clarity while driving at night.
Green lenses on the other hand heighten contrast, especially for golfers, as they make the ball stand out.
Imagine wearing glasses and being hit in the face by a squash ball or cricket ball! Could be disastrous.
Sports frames with polycarbonate plastic lenses provide the finest protection for sports lovers. They’re much stronger than conventional materials, plus the polycarbonate material has built-in UV protection.
Protective eyewear is greatly advised since it can prevent 90% of sports-related eye injuries.
Own your look!
From titanium to mixed metals, woods and plastics, your frames can define your personality and give you a fashion-forward edge.
