EYEWEAR LOOKBOOK

 

Are your glasses up to spec?

Eyewear… also nosewear, earwear, hairwear, facewear; let’s be honest, wearing something on your face is a pretty big deal. Spectacles and sunglasses change the way you look as well as the way you see and how you feel. When you pop a new frame on your face and stand in front of a mirror, you’ll be asking yourself “how do I look?” or even “who do I look like?” …and that’s just the beginning. We consider both the tangible and intangible elements of eyewear when finding frames to suit you.

spec

noun: spec; plural noun: specs
short for specification; an explicit set of requirements to be satisfied by a material, design, product, or service.

SUNWEAR & GLAREWEAR

We are all aware of the imporance of protecting ourselves from harmful UV. Nowadays, most of us wouldn’t dream of heading out in to the sunshine without taking the time to apply sunscreen beforehand.

Sunglasses are essential in protecting the eyes and surrounding skin from UV radiation. Cool classic designs, lightweight, sport specific models and fashion styles are all available with high-spec 100% UV blocking lenses, so there is no excuse for stepping out without a pair of sunnies.

Protect & Prevent

Light plays an essential role in everyday life; it is fundamental for your vision and it helps you perceive the surrounding world. Light also regulates sleep/wake cycles, mood and cognitive performance. But light can also be the cause of premature eye ageing.

YOUR EYE HEALTH AND PRESCRIPTION

A routine eye check with an optometrist determines whether or not you require spectacles or contact lenses to improve your vision. If you do, regular check-ups ensure that you are getting the best possible vision at all times.

Regular eye checks are also an important part of your general health care routine. You should have your eyes checked at least once every two years even if you have no problems with your vision and don’t need glasses.

It is rare for eye conditions to cause pain and sometimes the changes to your sight can be very difficult to notice. Some eye conditions which can cause loss of sight, for example glaucoma, don’t cause any symptoms – you can’t tell you have them. An eye check can detect eye conditions early, which means you can get any treatment available before your sight is badly affected.

NEED A CHECK-UP?

Everyone should have their eyes checked by an optician at least once every 2 years

YOUR PRESCRIPTION

New specs don’t have to be a once-in-a-while thing – think how often you buy new shoes! All you need is a valid prescription; yours will typically be good for 1-2 years. Book a check-up if you feel your eyes or vision have changed since your last test. Otherwise, come and see us any time you fancy a new look.

contact lenses

CONTACT LENS CARE

If you ever wear contact lenses, regular check-ups are extra important. Your contact lenses should always feel comfortable and you should enjoy great vision at all times – any issues are usually easily resolved. It’s important to make sure you have up-to-date specs that you like too, you never know when you’ll need to wear them!

NUTRITION

We all know the importance of a balanced diet, but did you realise that what you eat can affect your eye health? Nutritional research has shown, for example, that eating just one portion of fish a week may reduce your risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD) by up to 40%. Find out more here.
