Reading glasses have come a long way since today’s senior citizens started using them. Seniors are accustomed to buying bland styles of reading glasses at drug stores. But Baby Boomers have embraced readers in a way that could never have been anticipated. Boomers view them not simply as a vision aid but as items that help make fashion statements.
There is also an amazing variety of colors to choose from; elegant black to modern tortoise. You could of course try something new and go for a dash of bright green or purple. Some of the styles for full frames says it all; Bada Bing, Clark Kent, Geek or Depth Charger.
Lastly, you may have been blessed with a heart-shaped face. Your cheekbones are high and slopes steeply towards a very narrow chin. Your forehead also appears too wide.
However, they could be a nuisance to pull out and wear on occasions such as, an evening at a restaurant or a movie when all you want to do is take a quick glance at the menu or ticket. Not to mention, the sense of embarrassment and awkwardness, which many feel at such times.
For a man, a square face conveys undeniable strength, such as the face of Bruce Willis. For a woman, the square shape has led to many agonizing minutes of using makeup to soften the overall countenance.
Cataracts are caused by a build up of protein on the lens of the eye. Over time, the lens turns milky white, and clouds vision. The lenses then need to be surgically replaced to restore vision.
Macular Degeneration results in the loss of sharp vision. The macula is the part of your eye that is responsible for sharp focus, and bringing things clearly into view. The cause of this condition is still unknown, and it generally affects people over 60. Like all other parts of your body, your eyes respond favorably to great nutrition and exercise.
Optimum nutrition for your eyes includes proper amounts of Vitamin A, C, and E, as well as the minerals selenium and zinc. These nutrients are found in fresh fruits and vegetables, especially in yellow and yellow-orange foods like yams, cantaloupes, and carrots.
The next time you are looking at eyeglasses, try to match the top of the eyeglasses (the upper edge of the lenses and frames) with the shape of your brow. You will be pleasantly surprised to see that most any frame you select using this method will fit you quite nicely.
Men also have a wide variety of readers available just for them. There are the ultra cool thick frames reminiscent of Clark Kent and yesteryear. There are high quality metal frames cut in masculine shapes to offset male features.
