Almost invisible, rimless eyeglasses don’t box themselves into a singular fashion. Icons like Sarah Palin, Steve Jobs, etc., have caused a rimless eyeglasses craze. These stylized eyeglasses appear perfect for all occasions whether it is a casual gathering or a formal meeting. Its smart and sharp look is the reason behind the popularity of this eyewear among celebrities, politicians, authors, etc. These glasses have been worn by many actors to define the look of their characters and to get a serious persona. 

Rimless Glasses are spectacles whose lenses are not surrounded by plastic, metal, etc. Both the lenses are attached using a bridge and each end is connected with the temples that extend to wearer's eyes. There are a variety of factors contributing to the popularity of these glasses, comfort being a top one. These glasses are extremely light in weight and thus comfortable to wear, so if wearing eyeglasses annoys you, rimless spectacles might be your answer. Its lightweight property also makes it a perfect choice for those with an active lifestyle as these don’t cause any discomfort even if worn over an extensive period of time.

Further, you can use lens of any shape and size as there is no issue of frame size. Another advantage is that with rimless glasses, you need not buy another frame in case your power increases, you can simply replace your current lenses with new ones and thus update your glasses without spending whole lots of cash.

Wearing Glasses Can Make You Awesome

Eyeglasses are Cool
I know everyone will not agree with me on this one, but I declare that cool people wear eyeglasses. Even when I was a small child I always felt the smartest and most interesting folks wore glasses. My vision was pretty good as a child, so I never got to wear glasses. I was always disappointed about that. I did, however, have to wear braces on my teeth, but my feelings towards braces are certainly not positive. That is an entirely different topic though and I should explore that some other time.

Now, as an adult, I get to wear glasses. About 10 years ago, my vision was finally bad enough to wear eyeglasses part-time. I started to get headaches and squint, so I was quite excited to finally get my glasses. At the time, wire frames were all the rage, so my first pair of glasses had silver frames. Oh, it was a dream come true! I wore them all the time even though I did not need them that much.

Times are Changing
I've noticed recently that I am not the only person who thinks glasses are cool. Everywhere I go, people are wearing glasses. I could not help but notice the other day at the mall groups of teenagers wearing eyeglasses. There was a time when teenagers never wore glasses unless they absolutely had to do so. If you saw a group of "cool kids" together and one kid was wearing glasses, it was a sure bet that was the kid that did everyone else's homework in the group.

That is simply not the case anymore. Eyeglasses are in fashion now. The more obvious the glasses, the better. I've seen everyone from celebrities to cheerleaders wearing all types of eyeglasses. All the hipster kids are wearing the big glasses that look like they stepped out of the 1980s. Forget the subtle wire frames; you need to have plastic frames and in different colors. The bigger the eyeglasses the better. Even if your vision is perfect, you can still walk into a store like The Icing and buy a pair of fashion eyeglasses.

Don't Bother with the Contact Lenses
Do you were contacts? Shame on you! Take them out now and put on a pair of glasses. Personally, I feel like glasses are a perfect fashion accessory. I have several pairs of glasses in different colors. I can coordinate my glasses with my outfit. Why wear contacts and take away all that fun? If you enjoy picking out the jewelry you are wearing for that day, you can have the same fun picking out glasses. You have poor vision and you should be proud!

Support the Trend
If you wear eyeglasses, wear them with pride. Since I love glasses so much, I want to keep them trendy for as long as possible. Buy glasses and buy plenty of them. You don't have to spend a lot of money. Even Walmart sells prescription glasses. You can get an entire pair of glasses for under $50!

Let's keep eyeglasses in style! Even when the trend does go out of style, I will still wear my eyeglasses. No corrective surgery for me! Like I said, I always thought the smartest and most interesting people wore glasses. I am happy the rest of the world agrees with me now. Yes, cool people wear eyeglasses!

Reading Right with Half Moon Glasses

Half Moon Glasses 

There are two kinds of reading glasses - the full frames type and half moon glasses which just sit on the lower half of the nose. How do you determine who needs which kind of glasses? If you spend a lot of time reading, the full reading glasses are the best choice for you. You will however notice that if you want a quick look at something in the distance, it all appears blurry! The other solution of course is the half moon reading glasses. As the name suggests, this contains just half a lens made up of the reading prescription. When you have to be reading something, you will look through the lens and if you need to look at something in the distance, you look up and over the lens. This combination makes half moon reading glasses a good choice for many who only occasionally have to perform close at hand jobs. 

In the half frame eyeglasses, the half-lens is called the D segment because of the way it is shaped or the flat top, because, well, it has a flat top! If there is a narrower rectangular shaped segment that looks like a ribbon, it is called a ribbon segment. Also, the full bottom in the lower half of the lens is called the E lens. 

Variety Of Half Moon Glasses 
Half moon reading glasses have been fairly popular as they are a perfect choice for doing occasional close work. Keep the glasses low on your nose and for the duration of the work, you will have great near vision. You want to see something in a distance, no problem - just look up over the frames and you can view faraway objects without any blurriness. So far, the only factor that had prevented more people from buying these half moon glasses had been the severe lack of variety. Every half moon eyeglass looked like any other and many were afraid they looked like granny glasses. 

All that has changed. Half moon reading glasses now come in a variety of colors, designs and styles. From half-frames that come in classic looks like horn rims or cat-eyes, there are also more modern rimless varieties. One design allows you to have compact half moon reading glasses that you can fold and slip in your purse or your pocket. Most of these reading glasses are made of international anti-scratch, anti-shatter lenses with European spring hinges. For that additional touch of class, some are even encrusted with precious crystals! 

This new found combination of fashion and functionality has made half moon glasses the perfect reading glasses for any occasion.

7 Ways You Can Help Protect Your Vision

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize the importance of clear vision. At work, in school, or when out and about the movies, being able to see clearly is better than having to rely on a pair of graded glasses. As early as now, execute proper measures to protect your eyesight so you won't have to resort to Lasik eye surgery in the future.

The seven simple tips below will help you protect your vision:

1. Wear sunglasses that protects your eyes from UV rays produced by the sun.
The sun is the worst and most common source of ultra violet rays and when you expose yourself to too much radiation, the results are often highly threatening. Aside from eye injuries, excessive exposure could lead to cancer. Wearing the right pair of reading glasses should protect your eyesight from radiation damage. 

2. Eat fruits and vegetable that are rich in Vitamin A and Omega-3 Fatty acids and other nutrients that are good for the eyes.
As the adage goes, "you are what you eat," when you eat healthily and heartily, you become healthy, as well. 

3. Rest your eyes whenever you can.
Resting from time to time actually has its perks. When you have time for a nap, take it and enjoy it. You will be doing yourself and your body a favor when you take time to rest during the stressful hours in the morning. 

4. Blink often to lubricate the surface of your eyes or bring eye-drops wherever you go.
Doctors have yet to clearly explain the importance of blinking but it is widely accepted and understood that blinking does lubricate the eyes, thereby cleansing the upper layer of our eyes from impurities which may irritate the eyes and cause itching and redness. 

5. Use protective eye gear such as goggles when doing heavy work or when playing sports.
According to experts, the most fatal eye injuries occur at work, followed by playing sports.If you are doing both laborious kind of work, make sure to wear your goggles and other protective gear. 

6. Stop scratching or rubbing your eyes.
If you still remember your elders telling you to stop itching or scratching your eyes, they actually had a very good reason. Itching and scratching your eyes far too often may cause eye injuries and redness. 

7. Rest and look at far objects from time to time when using your computer.
Radiation produced by computer screens are dangerous themselves and these may cause a plethora of eye injuries the same radiation from the sun would. When using the computer, rest your eyes from time to time by looking at distant objects around you.

These easy-to-do tips can do so much to protect your eyesight. Change your habits today and live a healthier lifestyle.

Top 3 Eyeglasses and Sunglasses for your buck and great style

I've been wearing glasses since I was in kindergarten so I've explored the world of prescription glasses and non-prescription glasses well in my short time alive. I always loved getting new sunglasses whether I needed them or not because they are so cute. The prices are not always pocket friendly so you want to make sure you are in love with them and they can last you as long as you need them. Some styles and brands I like over others but these 3 are definitely my top favorite in style and quality! 

1. Ray Ban

Nothing is more classic than a pair of Ray Ban glasses. They are iconic with it's signature aviator shape that has been cloned throughout the market. They are timeless and go with just about anything. You will never have to worry about quality when it comes to these things. They come in both prescription and non-prescription so anyone can sport a pair.

2. Club Monaco

I consider these a great substitute to Ray Bans. Actually, Club Monaco glasses hold their own. I had a pair before my first Ray Bans and loved them. The only reason I no longer have them is because I lost them. When I went back for a new pair unfortunately they were no longer being carried there so I had to part ways with the club. They come in various styles and some really nice colors as well as some classic looks like Ray Bans.

3. Michael Kors

Some of the best tortoise shell glasses ever! These things are hands down some of the most durable glasses I have ever placed on my face. I don't exactly torture glasses but I do like to have a pair I can knock around anywhere or have ready in the car or somewhere else for backup. I have had a pair for at least 5 years and they still look brand new.
One thing to keep in mind when getting your glasses is you can always keep the frame and swap out the lenses. If you get a great pair like one of these, you'll have style and options for years and possibly decades to come!

Vintage Eyeglass Frames for Men

Vintage Eyeglass Frames for Men: Old School Glasses

If you're lucky enough to be visually impaired, you have a lot of style options at your disposal. One of the coolest ways to personalize your style is with a pair of vintage men's eyeglasses. Vintage glasses for men can be found all over the place even today, and finding the right pair that matches your look will do wonderful things for you.
This article is all about vintage eyeglass frames for men, and is intended to educate about how to get into this very cool style. We'll talk about the ways you can use vintage men's eyeglass frames to update your look, and the proper frame for your face. We'll touch on where you can go to purchase these kinds of frames, and what you'll likely go through getting your prescription.
Let's begin, and look at a few vintage glasses frames for men!

Vintage Glasses Frames: Types, Styles and Looks

As you can tell by looking at the remarkable Mr. Depp in the photograph at the start of this piece, the right pair of vintageeyeglass frames for men can have an amazing effect. They can make you look sophisticated, intelligent and even sexy.Glasses have really had a revival in recent years, especially thick-framed varieties, and few things are cooler than a pair of authentic vintage men's eyeglasses.

However, you want to make sure you pick the right style for you. Not every frame works with every face. The easiest way to determine if a particular look will work for you is to try on a few frames and see how they look. Generally speaking, darker frames work for people with darker features, and vice versa. However, that's not a hard and fast rule.

If you have more subtle features, I'd avoid thicker frames. Try on a pair before you buy to ensure that they'll look good on your face.

There are a lot of varieties of vintage glasses frames for men, and listing them all would be futile. But there are some general categories that you'll find all over the place.

Buying Vintage Men's Eyeglasses: Cost and Prescription

Finding the perfect pair of vintage men's eyeglasses can be rather tricky, mostly because there's a limited supply of authentic pairs out there, and lots of other people are trying to get them before you do! The price of vintage eyeglass frames for men is a little bit high as a result, but certainly not unreasonable compared to a new set.

The best place, in my experience, to track down a cool pair of men's vintage glasses frames is your localvintage store. If you live in a larger city you should have plenty of options. The vintage store I frequent has a large basket full of vintage frames that they get from various sources. You have to sift through a lot of duds, but it can be a fun process.

Another option for you is reproductions. Because of the renewed popularity of vintage men's eyeglass frames, many manufacturers are starting to recreate some classic looks. Most will follow the standard thick-framed geek chic look that's popular right now, but you can find vintage aviators and other styles too. Reproductions will be at least as expensive as a conventional new set of frames.

Vintage Prescription Eyeglasses:

If you're visually impaired, you'll want a prescription for your vintage eyeglasses. This is a lot easier than you might think. Once you have had aneye exam, take the prescription to any glasses store and they should be willing to make new frames for you. My prescription vintage eyeglasses were ready in less than an hour, and they even fitted them for me. An advantage of prescription vintage glasses: the staff will likely help you fit them to your face just like a new set.(Source:

How to Wear Nerd Glasses in 2013

Did you get the memo? Nerds are cool. Very cool. Hence it comes as no surprise that more and more people are angling to look like them. Some are even going so far as to purchase nonprescription nerd glasses to complete their nerdy ensembles.

Are nerd glasses awesome? Undoubtedly. 2013 is going to be a particularly big year for nerd glasses what with the whole geek/nerd movement gaining even more momentum. Trendiness aside, these spiffy specs can really spice up your look or complete an outfit.
Does everyone wear them well? Sadly, no. Not to worry - I'll give you some modern wearing tips, and also walk you through the major types of nerd glasses to consider when accessorizing.
After reading this guide, you'll be all set to let your inner nerd emerge like a big, awkward butterfly.

The Latest Developments

On my latest visit to Tokyo, I scoped out as many fashionable boutiques as I could to hunt for any noticeable developments in the nerd glasses trend. I noticed two particular developments that I believe will influence the way people wear and display nerd glasses throughout 2013:

People are wearing glasses without any lenses in them:This is a new level of irony- folks aren't even trying to pretend they need glasses anymore- they're just going for the fun frames!
People are using nerd glasses frames (without lenses) as keychains and purse accessories: I saw quite a few pairs of glasses with the temples removed that were just used to adorn purses and bags. They've become so much of an icon that people are just using the shape as a decoration.
I also noticed that bright, solid colors were the most popular choices, frame-wise, so if you want to stay on-trend, shy away from patterns.

Tips on Wearing Nerd Glasses

There are, believe it or not, right and wrong ways to wear nonprescription lenses just for fun. If you really want to rock the nerd look, you should keep these things in mind:

Consistency is Key
One of the best ways to rock vanity glasses frames is to make them a signature part of your look. I have a friend who wore vanity frames all the time, and he really made it work - it was a part of his unique style, which he rocked every single day, and the glasses helped to bring his ensembles together in a very pleasing and cohesive way.
If you are actually serious about making the nerd look work for you, you have to be consistent - you can't decide to wear your nerd glasses just one day a week. You'll need to make them an element of your overall style.

Dress the Party

Even if you do not want to incorporate vanity frames into your everyday look (or if you only want to wear them as part of a costume), you should be sure to wear them properly, which is to say that your outfit should jam well with your frames. Nerd glasses look best with nerd outfits- or else contrasted against another very distinctive style. If you wear them with your normal jeans and t-shrt/sweatshirt, your desired fashion statement is likely to do a very unsatisfying belly flop.

Types of Nerd Glasses

There are four major categories of nerd glasses out there: Wayfarer-style, Clark Kent-style, Half frame-style, and costume style. I'll walk you through each type and share some examples of models that are readily available online.

Wayfarer-Style Nerd Glasses

Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Wherefore hast thou taken over American culture? And how didst thou capture the hearts of nerds and badasses alike?

While Wayfarer-style sunglasses are worn by the "cool" set, Wayfarer-style glasses frames are considered to be on the nerd (albeit hipster-nerd) end of the continuum. Today, Wayfarer-style frames are by far the most popular nerd glasses style.
Made iconic by such cultural icons as This American Life's Ira Glass and that obnoxious "Can You Hear Me Now?" Verizon guy, these frames are both fun and flattering - and very easy to obtain. They're also more versatile and can be worn with a lot of different styles. The only downside to Wayfarer-style nerd glasses is their ubiquity. By going with these, you'll hardly be setting yourself apart from the crowd.

Clark Kent-Style Nerd Glasses

If you would like to be a bit more original with your nerd glasses choice, consider going with Clark Kent-style frames. They're a bit less trendy, but they're also not so unusual as to not stick out like a sore thumb on the streets, plus they've got some great pop culture connotations.

The other perk to these frames is that they're a bit more true to the nerd legacy - unlike Wayfarer-style frames, Clark Kent-style nerd glasses have no tie-ins with bad boys and hipsters. Nay, they're reinforced with images of nerdy reporters- and yet, they also suggest awesome hidden powers. Who could ask for anything more from frames?

Half-Frame Nerd Glasses

If you want the Wayfarer look (which is admittedly flattering), but want to ditch the cool/hipster connotations and replace it with a bit of quirky vintage spunk, go for half-frame Wayfarer-style glasses. 

Though you can purchase them new online, you can also find these by the barrel at flea markets and in a lot of vintage clothing shops. I recommend getting a used pair and either filling them with nonprescription lenses or simply popping the lenses out altogether. Wearing frames without any lenses really pops some quirk into your look and takes away any possible suggestion that you are an odd little glasses poser.

Costume Nerd Glasses

Finally, if you're just trying to dress up as a nerd for a party, and you want your look to be more of a charicature than an actual replication, you might consider getting a pair coke bottle-style nerd glasses intended for costume wear.

Though these are not fun to wear for more than an hour, they really pack a punch visually and make everyone laugh. They also make for great costume pieces to have on hand for funny profile pictures and visits from bored younger relatives.

Common Stores Selling Nerd Glasses

If you want to find suitable nerd glasses without purchasing expensive frames, you have a couple of options.

First, I recommend checking flea markets and thrift stores - they frequently sell old frames (usually without lenses) that you can either fix up with prescription lenses or leave lens-less. As a side note, if you're looking for unique lenses for prescription glasses, flea markets make for an excellent resource - you pay next to nothing for them and can find some truly unique pieces.

Four Types of Fashion Glasses Keep You in Style of Chic

Glasses nowadays are no longer related the adjective word dull. On the contrary, choosing a pair of fashion glasses will make you look smart, sophisticated and chic. In 2011, fashion glasses become the popular accessories among women. So, I collect some fashion glasses that are popular right now and may continue be popular in the next year.

Black framed glasses – I love those black frame glasses because the glasses bring me a simple fashion with a sophisticated looking. One of the best advantages of black frame glasses is that they have no limits for people's face shape, facial features as well as their clothes style. Besides, people of all ages can match with a pair of black frame glasses. So, a pair of black glasses is a good choice if you want to dress with a smart and sophisticated look.

Horn-rimmed glasses – In the big background of retro fashion in eyeglasses industry, how can we leave out horn-rimmed glasses? Horn-rimmed glasses today are not made of really horn from animals. They are just made of plastic with a horn look. Nevertheless, different from common plastic glasses, horn-rimmed glasses can bring people a gorgeous fashion. If you are huge fan of retro fashion, horn-rimmed glasses are worthy to collect.

Cat eye glasses- This is another choice for people who want to follow retro fashion. Those cat eye glasses are designed for girls and women that can bring them an elegant fashion in a retro way. But, one disadvantage of cat eye glasses is that they are just suitable for people who have a small face. Nevertheless, it is still a nice choice for girls and women.

Small round glasses – this type of glasses can also be classified into retro glasses. Modern small round glasses are no longer as simple as the round glasses that John Lennon worn. They new made small round glasses are more charming and suitable for women to wear. That is why round glasses are so active in many TV shows and celebrities in this year.

Buy cheap eyeglasses online is trending

Today, eyeglasses can be classified into luxury goods. A pair of common regular eyeglasses usually cost hundreds dollars or even more.

Top 5 Interesting Facts About Eyeglasses

What funky facts are there out in the world about eyeglasses and vision? I scoured the internet to see what I could find. After a good week of researching, I came up with the five best interesting facts about eyes, glasses, and the like! 

No 5: While the origin of eyeglasses is relatively unknown and widely debated,reading glasses first appeared on the scene in Italy around 1260 C.E. They were initially designed to help the elderly in their quest for reading. The reading glasses were insanely popular very quickly but there was one drawback - arms had not been invented for the prescriptio eyeglasses and the frames kept slipping down the nose! The Spanish tried to remedy this by tying ribbons to the frames and then wrapping them around their ears but the local folks were not so keen on that idea. No 4: The human eyeball weighs approximately one ounce. Imagine all the work your eyes do: reading, discovering, watching TV, refracting light, being pretty...etc. They do all this work within one ounce. Amazing! The human body truly astounds us! No 3: Wear a gold earring or eyeglasses? Personally, I would choose eyeglasses but sailors once believed that wearing a gold earring would help to improve their eyesight. We here at GlassesUSA are a little unsure of how a cold earring could possibly improve your eyesight or what the correlation between the gold earring and the eyes are the sailors must have had a reason! No 2: Sunglasses came on the scene in 1929 when a young innovator, Sam Foster, convinced the Woolworth's store on the Atlantic City Boardwalk to sell his new brand of sunglasses - FosterGrant. They became an instant sensation in the 1930's when worn by the era's most popular movie stars! The American culture has Sam Foster to thank for making something like eye protection from UVA and UVB rays look so cool and hip! 
It's hard to pick one last fact that could possibly be more interesting than wearing a gold earring to help your eyesight but here goes... No 1: Thomas Jefferson had more eyeglasses than I do. During his presidency, Jefferson ordered eyeglasses from Philadelphia optician, John McAllister. This grew into a two year union where Jefferson would instruct McAllister to fashion glasses for him for any occasion. The process would take about two weeks tomanufacture each frame. On occasion, McAllister would send President Jefferson a pair of frames that Jefferson was not too pleased about. The result would be a written letter and a diagram of exactly what kind of eyeglass frame the president would like - hand drawn by Thomas Jefferson himself. 

Now, go. Go and use this information at any trivia night you may come across.(source:

However, buying high quality spectacles on the high street has definitely become a costly affair. Even the simplest pair of spectacles starts from about £80.

There are several online stores that sell spectacles at almost half the high street prices thereby benefiting the consumer greatly. From conventional fully rimmed, semi rimless and rimless prescription glasses or trendy and offbeat designer glasses and sun glasses, these stores have it all.

Top Tips for Buying Eyeglasses

Purchasing eyeglasses is nerve wracking! Everyone has questions that run through their head when buying eyeglasses, like "are these frames too big for my face?" and "plastic eyeglasses or metal?" Ladies seem to have it a bit easier because they have a wider selection of sizes, shapes, colors, styles, and patterns. The larger selection may seem easier but in fact, it makes things a little more complicated. In the past, men had two different types of "fashion" eyeglass styles: metal and thick plastic. Talk about bland! We are not in high school and your parents don't help you buy your eyeglasses. Eyeglasses should help enhance your look not make you look more harsh.

So, how can you break from the mold and choose prescription glasses that make you look like a chic individual with style and class? It's easy. Stick to this guide and you'll pick the best eyeglasses for you!

Grab your friend for help...
Your friends are generally pretty open and honest with you when you buy clothing so they can be just as helpful when you are looking to buyeyeglasses so make your best friend sit with you while you look at eyeglass frames. Really, make them sit with you through the whole process! You want their honest opinion and they will openly and honestly tell you if you look like a nerd or if the eyeglasses are fashionable on you- even when looking at them online.

Stay in line with your normal style
Everyone gets the urge to try something new and what that's great, try choosing new colors - like choosing black over silver or gunmetal over gold. However, do not deviate from your own style when it comes to eyeglasses. If you normally wear simple, silver metal frames - do not step too far away from this and go for big, bold plastic frames. This will make you a VERY unhappy person not to mention an aggravated customer. If you still want a different look, shop online and save yourself some money while you are at it.

Stick with your fashion taste
Do you prefer the casual jeans and a t-shirt as opposed to wearing business wear all day? Aim for dual-toned plastic frames, or even black frames with thinner plastic to spice it up a bit as opposed to keeping things very simple. If you prefer the posh styles - try the more simplistic frames like silver or gold metal frames that will not overpower your look.

Take your time
Never feel rushed to make a decision when it comes to buying eyeglasses. It seems like a simple idea but regardless of price, eyeglasses are a huge investment. If you do not have that "I must have them" feeling - don't buy them! However, much like buying a great pair of jeans - you'll know instantly if you love them. If you love 'em, buy 'em!

Shopping for eyeglasses should not be a mission! They should be an asset to your wardrobe and a positive aspect to your appearance. Eyeglasses are the "hot" accessory!
