Glasses

I've been wearing glasses since I was in third grade. The only thing that I don't like about my glasses is that they slide down my nose. I have no idea how many times a day I push them back up, but I'm sure it's a lot, especially when I'm outside in hot weather or [...]

I've worn glasses since I was in third grade. I don't know what the definition of legally blind is, but without my glasses, I have a feeling I'd fall into that group. If I'm awake, I'm wearing my glasses. Now that I'm older and wiser, I have progressive lenses that allow me to read and [...]

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Alcon. All opinions are 100% mine. Are you at an age where you need reading glasses or bifocals in order to read or see things up close? Do these glasses make you feel older when you're using them? I know that it took me [...]

Innovation in eyewear isn't really a topic that those of us in the tech and gadget field keep track of. Other than changes in frame styles and lens quality, eyeglasses look and perform the same way they have for decades. At least that's what I thought until I was contacted about Aspire Eyewear, a new [...]

spine-5

The optical lenses in our eyeglasses have evolved over the years to include bifocals, scratch protection, progressive bifocals, automatic tinting in the sun and more. But the frames that hold these lenses have changed very little over time. Yes, the styles and designs have changed with fashion trends, but the physical design and components of the [...]

NoScope glasses Demon serires

Have you ever found yourself deep in the jungle searching for bad guys, or how about deep in space looking for those aggressive aliens? If you play video games, especially FPS (First Person Shooters) games, you probably know what I am talking about. One issue I have noticed when putting in long sessions of gaming [...]

I'm apparently lucky, but I never seem to be bothered by staring at a computer or tablet screen for hours.  I know many people are plagued with eye strain, dry eyes, headaches, and the like after using a computer for a while.  I'm not sure what can prevent the eye strain, other than taking breaks, [...]

I have worn eyeglasses since I was in second grade.  My first pair was short-lived, I had not gotten used to wearing them yet and I took them off every day at lunch in the cafeteria.  For some reason, I had the habit of putting them in the brown paper bag that my mom packed [...]

From the picture it may be hard to tell what the object on the right is – is it a pen, a pencil?  Hint – look at the shadow.  The Swingtime Readers are as narrow as they appear.  The next photo shows the same objects from a different angle. And they are as flat as [...]
