One of the most popular styles that have been all the rage for the past few years  are rimless glasses and although they are moving up and down the trend ladder they are still a valid choice for those who have worn glasses for years.

If you are now able to have several pair of glasses you can see the benefit of these light and airy glasses that are perfect for some hot summer days or when playing sports. Some come in titanium and are very flexible yet durable, while still allowing a full field of vision.

These rimless glasses come with a huge selection of lenses shapes and can be customized in many ways to please the wearer. There are round lenses, more square as well as rectangular, larger and smaller, etc. This makes these frames a really easy choice for all face shapes and fashion expressions.

One of the big advantages of rimless frames, besides being very light and having the “almost not there” feel, is that they don’t border your face or disturb the natural lines of your face allowing for a very nicely made up face…be it with great makeup or any other experimental adornment.

You can further customize these glasses by having a tint..solid tint (same color on the whole lenses) or a gradient tint (dark at the top getting gradually lighter) that will give the glasses more flare and style.

Are My Eyes/Vision Changing Because I’m Just Getting Older? – Eye M.D.

Ageing eyevision
As eyes age some anomalies may appear..

As we all know, or might suspect there are many changes in the body that come with age,  eyes changing are no different. In fact, I just came back from my trip to the optometrist’s office to get  eye prescriptions I was informed (as I am about to turn 50) that after the age of 40 the eye and it’s ability to focus mainly on closer targets gets weaker and weaker. My vision is changing!

I’ve also found out that my left eye vision strength has deteriorated, she had no idea why, as all my life wearing eyeglasses the correction was equal on both sides. Not now that I am old….older!

So I’m reading this and I know you could use a little heads up to. From random tiny clumps of cells floating around the eye and making you think you’ve seen a flash of light, to muted colors, to symptoms of macular degeneration or even signs of glaucoma like deteriorating peripheral vision. Keeping an eye out for various subtle changes in vision as well as getting regular eye exams will help the changes that might come with age. It will definitely give you a head start with great hints if there is any diabetes on the horizon.

I for one was fine on all counts this time…I hope to see the same in the future. While changing eyes/vision can be scary be sure to take good care of your eyes. Better safe than sorry…sight is so precious!

Keep an eye out for your nutritional needs as proper nutrition can also help keep you eye sight feeling younger!

Summer Favourite Tortoiseshell Sunglasses…

This summer the coolest styles in sunglasses for men are the tortoise shell sunglasses. Whether  hanging at the beach or pool or off to an  event tortoise is the the way to go.

Inspired by JFK seen below stylin’ retro tortoise shades..with plenty of celebrities following suit, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp to name a few..

We also see that with the death of Robin Williams (RIP) all eyes have turned to the Deat Poet’s Society and tortoise shell sunnies are right in step with this renewing trend.

Odd how these things work, isn’t it…

But as tradition predicts, what’s the hippest fall wear for eyeglasses…tortoise shell!
