Winter Sunglasses

Winter Sunglasses

It is crucial to wear your sunglasses all year long – but sometimes in the winter we may tend to forget. While digging out from recent snows or building a snowman with the kiddos – sunglasses should be as much of a staple as a hat and gloves.

The Vision Council recently took to Facebook to remind us that “UV radiation can still cause damage in the winter months. In fact, during fresh snow fall, individuals can experience “snow blindness” from UV radiation reflecting off the ground,”.

Our staff picked a few of their favorite sunglasses this season from their favorite brands to our bestsellers. Keep scrolling to see their picks!

1.) Prada jeweled black on black sunglasses. 
These are high fashion frames fit for topping off any stylish gal’s look. The black on black look is chic but still versatile enough to use everyday.

Before & After: Pro Design

Before & After: Pro Design

First of all, a HUGE thank you to our wonderful patient who allowed us to share her before and after photos of her new frame purchase!

We think this is patient’s transformation is a great example of how much good frame design can change your look! And do you see that big smile? Her frame choice gives her a more youthful look and highlights her best features. Her beautiful blue eyes just pop with her colorful but understated new frames. This patient went with a ProDesign frame, ProDesign frames are made in Denmark.

Here is ProDesign’s mission statement: “Clean Danish design is the basis of our products but we always add a twist of something surprising – something unexpected. We aim to balance classic and clean with bold and bright to continuously keep classic styles updated. The most important thing is always to create eyewear that will create a synergy between the face and the frame. The frame and the face must interact to obtain a beautiful and harmonic look. We never design a frame that demands all the attention but rather a piece of eyewear that completes and enhances the lines of the face.”

We have to agree that ProDesign is true to their mission, providing stylish frames in classic but modern styles!

Are you looking to update your look? Maybe you just want a new frame to fit into your existing style? Make an appointment and stop in for an exam and fitting!

Frames Friday: New Line, Alexander Daas!

FFAlexanderDaas

 

We are SO excited to introduce to you a new line we are now carrying, Alexander Daas. These frames are super modern and stylish and come in a wide range of styles. There are so many aspects of this brand that we are excited about, but we’ll outline a few here for you;

1. All Alexander Daas frames are designed using a real face. This is great because it helps ensure proper fit, they construct their frames keeping in mind that every face is different.

2. They have an entire line of petite frames. The choices for those with smaller faces can be rather slim, but not with Alexander Daas. They really aim to fill the void for petite faces.

3. The use only high quality Japanese and Italian acetate. An eyeglass wearer can absolutely tell the difference when wearing high quality acetate, and it will last.

4. They give a portion of all proceeds to charity. Each authorized dealer gets to choose where they will donate! Give the gift of sight and feel good about it, too.

In short, Alexander Daas frames are modern, stylish twists on classic designs. Interested in getting fitted for a pair? Stop in or make an appointment!

Frames Friday: Face a Face Lucas 2

framesfrifaceaface1This Friday we are highlighting a super chic frame from one of our newest brands, Face a Face. Fans of retro-chic should love Face a Face – they offer a unique twist on classic silhouettes.

With a strong emphasis on acetate, the collection reinterprets in its own way the major trends of this season. Very 50s and ultra feminine cat-eye shapes, 80s oversized graphic designs , or softer shapes for men or women… they are sometimes enriched with decorative or functional metal part.

The design featured in the photos above is the Lucas 2 in blue and tortoise shell. They do offer other color options as well as different frames in the same family!
