Sunwear - Important AND Sexy


Sunglasses are a not only a great fashion accessory, but their most important job is to protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV light is electromagnetic radiation that is invisible to the human eye. There are many negative affects of UV light to your eyes, and when it comes to your vision, you want to take the proper precautions.  


Below are four reasons why wearing sunglasses is so important!

There are some people who never feel the urge to leave the house. They’re content to stay in the city they came from, the couch they sit on, and the 360 degree view around them.

Then there’s the rest of us. The people who can’t sit still, and always keep their passports close to them – just in case.

Whether you call it wanderlust, a love of travel or good old curiosity – the fact remains the same: Your hunger to explore cannot be quenched, no matter how many vacations or journeys you take.

Let your Eyeglasses Improve Your Eyes And Your Eyesight

As eyeglass wearers, our number one concern is what we see from the inside out. Beyond the frames lies a crystal clear world that technology and design have allowed us to see unhindered. But sometimes, we forget about what lies behind the frames, our eyes, our windows, and how the world sees us

Finding the right pair of eyeglasses can enhance the look of your eyes, facial structure and style and can go beyond their functionality when chosen correctly. Finding the right frame can highlight eye shape and cheekbones, magnify your eye makeup and lashes and bring attention to your best facial features when the right frames are selected. 

5 Things Eyeglasses Do Besides Enhancing Eyesight

When making an eyeglass purchase, the first thing you look for is functionality. Will they improve my eyesight? Will I be able to read better? Drive better? Go about my day-to-day tasks with more precision and ease?
And while all of those are crucial when it comes to finding the right pair of eyeglasses, one may wonder, what ELSE can my glasses do for me?
