When it comes to accessories most people only consider sunglasses as a fashionable item, however there are many benefits to eyeglasses not only in fashion aspects, but also in the maintenance of eye health.
It’s a common misconception that glasses are purely for practicality, but in actuality it’s easy to transform your practical accessories into fashionable accessories. Designer brands aren’t just found on the catwalk, in fact they’re becoming increasingly more affordable and in more categories than you think. Straying away from clothes, many big brand designers (as well as celebrities) are releasing high quality, designer glasses. With a variety of styles ranging from Nike glasses to the Kylie Minogue glasses range, there is a fashionable glasses brand available to suit everyone, ensuring that your essentials don’t put a downer on your style.
Sophistication and Class
How many times have you watched a TV show or movie and the ‘smart’ character is wearing glasses? Well it turns out that the link between glasses and intelligence isn’t simply a movie trope, as surveys have shown that wearing glasses makes you appear more intelligent. An easy way to impress on an interview (or even a date!) is to put the contacts away and not be ashamed to wear your glasses, with the right pair suited to you it’s easy to provide a fantastic first impression.
As they never touch the eyeball itself glasses are completely non-invasive, therefore making them more hygienic and safer than contacts and laser eye surgery as they are unlikely to cause side effects and far less likely to cause any infection caused by direct contact to the eye with potentially unclean hands. As well as this, glasses can also serve as a form of protection against injury as they cover the eyes and greatly decrease the risk of a foreign object entering the eyeball and possibly scratching or irritating the cornea.
A great thing about glasses is the accessibility. If you’re on a budget, glasses are a great choice as they cost less than both contact lenses and surgery, as contacts require constant restocking and surgery costs can be extremely extortionate. In addition, it is far easier to care for a pair of glasses than it is contact lenses, as contacts must be carefully cleaned or replaced daily to reduce the risk of infection. That being said, glasses are far more accessible because many people can have trouble getting used to touching their eyes, or even find it difficult to place and remove the lenses. Due to the high volume of glasses stores (both physical and online), they’re easily attainable meaning that in the case of breakage they can quickly and easily be fixed, as well as adapted to your change in prescription.
While glasses are a necessity for many people, the style and type of glasses chosen are extremely important. Whether you’re trying to look more fashionable by buying designer brands or improve your overall eye health, glasses are sure to be your new favorite accessory.
