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!
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.
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?
Simple Ways to Maintain or Recapture Your Youthful Appearance
As you age maintaining a youthful appearance is likely at the top of your wish list. From the best serums and holistic treatments on the market to restrictive diet and exercise plans, many of us are always seeking a way to keep the aging away. And although employing age-reversing techniques may help to combat or slow further aging signs, there are many things you can do now to slow the process before it starts.
Number one is taking care to protect yourself from harsh, natural elements. For all of you beach bunnies and avid travelers, this means the sun. Though we are repeatedly told to adopt the habit of coating ourselves in the highest SPF we can find, you can go above and beyond, adding in quality eyeglasses to further protect the skin around your eyes. This delicate skin is ten times thinner than the skin on your face, and as we age, our skin loses elasticity, becoming even thinner due to the breakdown of collagen. Caring for your most sensitive areas now will help them to remain more supple and youthful longer.
When Hollywood comes to mind the images of palm trees, glitzy parties, movie stars and fabulous eyeglasses take center stage. Playing a role in shielding everything from paparazzi flashes to southern California sunrays, eyeglasses play a popular role in every stars life. By taking cues from the Hollywood elite, we too can be outfitted in the most stylish and fitting frames that highlight everything from perfect brows to bronzed cheek bones.
At Glance Glasses of Salem and Lake Oswego, we carry an ever-changing line of the top brands and styles available today. Below, we share the top tips in finding the right style for you that can help to channel your inner movie star. When celebrities choose their glasses, it’s never a happy accident that the styles seem to fit them perfectly. We work one on one with you to ensure the perfect fit, frame and style every time.
Face shape is number one in choosing the right size, and the right shape, frame for your face. Before we dive into style and color, you first need to narrow down the shape or shapes that will best compliment your natural facial structure. This will give your face balance and add to the overall look. While a round face, as seen on star Jennifer Lawrence, works best with rectangular frames, oval faces, such as Jessica Alba or Megan Fox, are best accented by butterfly shapes. Heart faces, such as Selena Gomez, do best in soft oval styles that balance strong jawlines. As one of our many personal services, we can assist shoppers in finding the right frame for their shape.
We were invited back to AM Northwest to discuss how we source the best quality frames from Europe. In this video Lisa Martinsson (Owner) talks with Helen and Dave how Glance is able to meet with eyewear designers to brainstorm ideas and make improvements for future eyewear lines. In this episode we also had time to showcase the unique ways in which our customers are able to customize their frames.
