Can you adjust your glasses by yourself?
If your frames are not suitable, adjusting your glasses at home may be easier than you think. You can solve the most common problems in the frame by yourself, but sometimes taking your glasses to an optician is the best thing to do. Of course, if your problem is your lenses, that's something you can't usually fix at home.
Can I use my prescription for contact lenses?
You cannot and should not use your glasses prescription to calculate your contact lens prescription. It's important to note that not everyone who needs glasses can wear contact lenses, and it's important to check them separately. Some people have sensitive corneas or other eye complications and never get used to wearing contact lenses.
Crystal clear eyeglasses
The trend is to make everything bright and clear. Frame shapes can be small and round or thick. Some have subtle colors like blue or gray, which makes the glasses look more jewel-like. Whichever you choose, a clear frame will help improve your style. Transparent, translucent frames have gone from being a bold fashion statement to a common, versatile option in the last few years, and now eyewear has more options than ever before. These frames vary from heavy traveler style to a more elegant corner frame to balance out your facial features. No matter what color or hue you choose, these clear frames show off your personality.
The frames should be the right size.
When choosing glasses for kids, pay attention to the size of the frame. Be careful not to choose frames that are too big for your child, and avoid frames that will create shadows or blind corners.
The development of glasses
In 1451, Nicholas of Cusa of Germany invented a lens that was thinner in the middle and thicker at the end to help short-sighted people. In 1727, Edward Scarlett, an English optician, invented modern frames that could be worn over ears and noses. Benjamin Franklin, an American scientist, and philosopher invented bifocals, which divide the lenses into far and near parts. The two lenses are held together by a metal frame. Frame construction has improved over the centuries, and today frames have come in different kinds of styles and designs. Unbreakable lenses were invented in 1955, and in 1971 a new type of lens combining plastic and glass properties was invented.
The History of Clubmaster Glasses
Clubmaster glasses are a variation of the browline sunglasses made popular in the 1950s. The lenses of clubmaster glasses are typically held in place by a thin metal frame and are of a squared-off round shape.
Although many people believe that the Cubmaster glasses root back to the 1950s, the fact is that clubmaster glasses or clubmaster sunglasses as we know them didn’t come about until Bruce Willis wore a pair of Shuron Ronsirs browline glasses with tinted lenses on the TV series Moonlighting in the mid-1980s.
From that moment, browline glasses draw the public’s attention. By the 1960s, Ray-ban was a fairly large contender in the market and its owner Bausch & Lomb was one of the top manufacturers of browline-style eyeglasses. And then the Ray-ban launched the first browline sunglasses, called it clubmaster. Sales were enormous almost immediately and despite only coming out mid-80s, they still ranked as the third most popular style of sunglasses sold in the decade, next to Ray-ban’s Wayfarers and Aviators.
Then Ray-ban took every revision of the original 1947 Browline and began offering it as part of the clubmaster series. From bold brows to lightweight metal caps first introduced in the 1950s, the clubmaster offered a style that could fit elegantly on just about any face shape. After that, the clubmaster glasses have been popular for a long time.
