Glasses and other eyewear products are not just for people with weak eyesight. They are among the few accessories that can give you an entire look, all by themselves. Change the sunglasses and you can time travel from the thirties to the fifties or the present to the future. And if you use any of these, you are bound to need some other vision care products and accessories.
Eyewear products are not merely utilitarian any longer. Unlike past eras, when someone in glasses was automatically seen as a nerd or a weakling, vision care products are now a major fashion statement. They are a great way to help express your personality and establish an individual identity.
You can choose from a range of styles, of course. Cool rimless eyewear products suit the trendy unbounded personality. Rimmed at the top is equally cool, while giving the impression of a slightly more mature, more successful individual.
Very popular with celebrities in recent months, rimless and top rimmed glasses are an elegant and smart addition to any wardrobe. Sunglasses and designer eyewear set you apart from the crowd, and contact lenses of course are extremely versatile these days. They can change your entire look and style, and transform your personality.
Vision care products can also include accessories like contact lens care solutions that ease dry patches and clean protein deposits from your contact lenses. There are multi-purpose disinfecting solutions available, that provide effective cleaning, disinfecting and cushioning when you store your lenses. Eye vitamins are another kind of product that a user of spectacles or contact lenses might consider buying. They contain antioxidant vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids for better vision health.
If you are looking for new kinds of eyewear or vision care products for you, or as a gift for someone you know who wears glasses, an interesting idea might be to check out the new safety goggle that is all the rage these days. It fits over your prescription eyeglasses, to protect your eyes and your eyeglasses from direct impact in case of accidents, airborne particles like dust, and so on. The fit is comfortable, and they don’t need to be custom made. As a result, you can buy them direct, as a gift, without having to consider size or prescription issues, and they even fit with hard hats, making them a good gift for someone who works in construction, for example.
A funky new idea in eyewear and vision care products is the Interactive Data Glasses, being developed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems. They will let you open applications, view information, or view images, all using your glasses as a screen! Eye tracking will mean that you control the content by just moving your eyes. It will be small and light, and nowhere close to as expensive as earlier models.
