If you consider yourself part of the counter culture, if you like skateboarding, photography, or funky house music, Arnette Eyewear is the brand for you. We here at Optics Planet recently had the pleasure of meeting some reps all the way from California, where the Arnette brand lives and breathes. They, like their brand where very easy going and fun, surfer type of guys. Relative to the local scene with a totally urban vibe Arnette is making its way all across America at concerts, on artists, skateboarders, surfers, musicians, tattoo artists and Festival goers alike. Being a not so typical mother of three, one with tattoos and purple hair, I immediately fell in love with the new refreshed Arnette line, but it’s not just for us wild ones!

The new Arnette line is marketed toward Tween to Mid Thirties. What this means is that their eyeglass line is fitted toward the smaller face, which is awesome because there is not a bunch of eye wear lines out there made for smaller faces. Their eyeglasses range in size from a 47mm eye size to a 53mm eye size with a few stragglers over or under. The color palette ranges from beautiful …

Now is a good time to check if you have any money left on your flexible spending account. Most likely if you don’t spend it by the end of the year, you will lose it. The so-called IRS “use it or lose it” rule. If you haven’t scheduled a doctor’s appointment yet, you probably won’t be able to squeeze in as everybody is booked till the end of the year. I would recommend to spend some time reading your flexible spending account expenses guide. You will definitely find something you can use your flex dollars on. For example, besides medical procedures and prescription medicine, some programs cover such things as first aid kits, band aids, cough syrup, over the counter drugs, etc. Or if you need vision correction, you might get an extra pair of prescription eyeglasses. You can get some high end Ray Ban prescription eyeglasses and Polo eyeglasses, or designer Vogue prescription eyeglasses and D&G prescription eyeglasses with your pre-tax money. If you are a fashionista and already own a few pairs of eye glasses, think about a nice pair of prescription sunglasses that you can use for driving. Ray Ban prescription sunglasses or …

I have recently written a post in my sunglasses blog about Pupil Distance and why this measurement is a must when you order glasses on line. A lot of people found this entry useful, so I decided to talk little bit more about other facial measurements that opticians take.

When you order eyeglasses with single vision lenses, the prescription provided by your eye care professional and PD is usually all you need. If you decide to get bifocal glasses, you will also need to know Segment Height measurement for the frame you choose. This measurement determines the height of the reading area of the lens. Why is it necessary to get an accurate seg height measurement when ordering bifocal sunglasses or eyeglasses? Because if the reading segment of the lens is misplaced, you will have to bend your neck backwards or pull the eye glasses down the nose when reading.…

I have been receiving a lot of questions lately about what gradient lenses are and how they look in sunglasses. The main purpose of gradient lenses is fashion! However, there is an advantage to the lenses too. If you are working outside and need to read a lot you don’t have to take off your glasses anymore to be able to see what is written on the paper.

Gradient lenses are lighter on the bottom and darker at the top with slight transition in the middle. Sunglasses with gradient lenses look very modern. If you look at our celebrities, most of them have gradient lenses in sunglasses. What makes it easier to read is whenever you look down to read you will look through a lighter part of the lens.

Personally, I like the way gradient lenses look. I think they add a mystery to your face and that attracts others. I would recommend for all of us to owe at least one pair of sunglasses with gradient lenses for those days when we are not sure what mood we ar in. :) D&G sunglasses and Vogue sunglasses have many models available with gradient lenses by default. Plus, now we can …

I went camping recently. While being there I got into a fight with one of the guys there. I was wearing Vogue sunglasses with large lenses, and he said that he doesn’t like sunglasses like that since he can not see my face. So, I told him that it is a personal choice that person chooses himself. It might be true that smaller lenses look classier, but it does not mean that large lenses look bad or have no benefits.

Large lenses cover your eyes more, therefore, blocking more of the UV rays from the sun. At the same time, it does not make any face look bad just because other people can not see their face. Most people look great in sunglasses with large lenses. Others look good in sunglasses with small lenses.

Most sunglasses brands are making both styles of sunglasses nowadays. Look at one of the most popular brands like Ray Ban sunglasses. They have many models with small lenses, and for some reason it is more popular for men then women. They also have many models with large lenses they look modern and stylish. Same think with Ray Ban prescription eyeglasses. So, do not …
