Retro Eyewear Frames
Trends in Eyewear Design
Retro-eyewear frames are the biggest design trend. Anything retro-esque: whether it’s an actual vintage frame from a second-hand shop or a pair from your dad or a new frame being reborn with a retro twist. Plastic acetate eyewear is the easiest way to get a vintage look. Acetate is bold and makes it easy to get a 50’s style. Basic black and all variations of Tortoiseshell are truly classic, but there are some fabulous new gradient blacks and browns that give the eyewear a fresher feel. Round eyewear is having a renaissance: from perfect circles to Panto shapes. Round eyewear is another version of the retro trend and they lend an extra air of eccentricity that square shapes do not. Round eyewear is academic and ads character. Great for someone looking to be a bit quirky and out of the box. Color. Color. Color. And the brighter the better! Try pairing hot fushia pink with retro-eyewear frames. You’ll be remembered everywhere you go. Transparent Colors allow for the tones of your skin to show through making the frame look more natural on you. A flat Matte finish gives eyewear a cool and funky unfinished look. Some eyewear has a subtle matte finish however there are some designs with a very textured matte finish – almost giving the impression of wood.
Frame styling is the art and science of fitting frame styles to create the best possible facial appearance for a person. As eyewear designers, we combine the function of an optical device with the look of a fashion accessory specifically created for your face and style. The clarity and durability of an anti-reflection coating on eyeglass lenses is a perfect match. The lenses are so clear that they become almost invisible. Our clients are most appreciative!

Choosing the Best Eyewear for You
Eyewear plays a big role in your life. It affects your performance and your appearance. It all starts with your prescription. There have been many advances in lens technology. Lenses are thinner, lighter and more durable than ever before. Anti-reflection coatings are easier to clean, and progressive lenses have less peripheral distortion. Progressives can even be custom made for you, increasing the near zones THREE times! Your eyewear reflects you and your lifestyle. It is the accessory people see first. You probably don't wear the same shoes every day and for every occasion, so why restrict yourself to one pair of glasses? Consider the following:
How do you want to be seen right now? Fashion forward? Strictly business? Eyewear can help you capture the look you want and make you feel more confident.
Safety glasses are a must on an assembly line or a construction site. And while computer related eyestrain doesn't damage your eyes, it does tax your vision. When your job performance is at stake, the right eyewear is important.
Whether you ski, knit, read or play tennis, the proper eyewear enhances your leisure activities.
It is usually best to pick a frame that is the opposite of your face shape. For example, a square frame looks best on a round face.
