Reading glasses are never cool. Ever.

What do your glasses say about you? It’s a simple question with, at least on the surface, a simple answer. They either say “Hey, I’m cool.” or, provide people with an indication of your age, or just highlight the fact you simply cannot see very well. And oftentimes all three. But look beyond the four-eyed facade, behind the thick rims that sit between your eyes and the world, and you can see they’re actually communicating a lot more than you’d first think.… Read more

Why Summer After Laser Eye Surgery is So Much Better

What comes to mind when you think of summer? The smell of freshly cut grass, the sound of waves crashing, afternoons spent barbecuing with the family or whole evenings outside drinking wine and chatting with friends? When you’re a glasses or contacts wearer, these images of summer are nothing more than idealistic fantasies. The reality is, your best time of the year is more likely consumed by fighting off allergies and eye problems and dealing with all the inconveniences that come with… Read more

How to Avoid Steamed-up Glasses

You’re riding your motorbike when suddenly your glasses start to fog. You’re cooking dinner when suddenly your glasses start to fog. You’re stepping out of your car, skiing in France, walking down the freezer aisle at Sainsbury’s, when suddenly, you guessed it, your glasses start to fog. Just like picking up the occasional scratch and losing the odd pair, foggy lenses seems an unavoidable part of being a glasses wearer. And other than avoiding all these activities altogether, the best you can typically do… Read more

Time for new sunglasses

Ever since I was four, and I was forced to wear the same blue navy sweater and same brown straight leg trousers as everyone else at school, I’ve despised being told what to wear. It’s not that I feel I should be able to express myself through my clothes, or even that I feel it’s an insult to my style. It’s just that generic, off-the-shelf clothing is so limited, ugly, and poorly designed that no one could ever really feel comfortable or… Read more

Like having a baby or dropping 10 stone, there are some things in life that you simply don’t know what they’re going to be like until you go ahead and do them.

Flying Long-distance With Contact Lenses

On top of the jet lag, swollen feet, and missing bags, after a long flight, the last thing you want is dry, irritated eyes. But so is the life of a contact lens wearer. We’re so used to it, in fact, that it often takes our partners or friends to alert us to our red, puffy, bloodshot eyes before we realise, damn — we’ve still got our lenses in. Normally you just take them out for a few hours and job’s a good… Read more

Contact lenses vs glasses: Which provides better vision?

  If you’ve ever worn contacts and glasses, you’ve probably noticed your quality of vision differs between the two — particularly when transitioning from one after a long period of time wearing the other. The weird thing about this is that it can happen even if both are of the same prescription. Surely if they’re the same prescription and therefore the same strength lens and the same focusing power, then they should provide the same standard of vision, right? Well, it’s true they have… Read more

Never buy a pair of glasses again

Recently, while slumped over a Pret salad at work wondering why I never seem to have any money, I started working out what I could save by cooking an extra portion of food each night and bringing it to work for lunch the next day. It sounds like a student exercise, but stick with me. When cooking for one, a meal — protein, carbs, and veg, or a hearty salad — costs me on average £3.20. Make that go a little further and… Read more

How to make your glasses cool — throw them in the bin

When a fresh piece of clothing or accessory is suddenly labelled ‘cool’ by the fashion police, it’s usually swiftly picked up by alternative, fringe groups before just as quickly being thrown out in disgust when it hits the mainstream. But what about when it happens the other way around — when a product that’s been around for decades, even centuries, is suddenly crowned cool and adopted by niche fashion circles? The universe doesn’t implode. But you do get an unusual situation in… Read more
