Have Your Glasses Fit Your Personality

By Amanda Somrekli

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 are many styles of reading glasses equally suited for men and women alike. Classic tortoise and black frames in circular or rectangular shapes are truly unisex.

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.

But the truth is right in front of that mirror. Your face has a square shape. It is a formidable and powerful face. Your jaw is pronounced and your forehead is wide.

Glaucoma is one of the most common eye diseases. Glaucoma causes almost 12% of all blindness in the US. Increased fluid builds up within the eyeball, causing pressure. This pressure, over time causes irreversible damage and blindness.

But some women, like Jamie Lee Curtis, appear comfortable with their square faces. The secret is around the eyes. With the right reading glasses or sunreaders, a woman does need to not worry much about makeup.

Shopping for reading glasses for the first time and not sure how to feel abut it or what to look for? You are young and active and can not believe your eyes suddenly can't keep up. Your hip, stylish and active and want to make sure your glasses are too!

With the huge variety of colors, shapes and materials available today your first shopping experience can be overwhelming. However, if you follow a few simple suggestions you should have no problem finding something just right.

Some signs of Presbyopia include needing to hold reading materials at arm's distance, blurry vision in low light, and eye fatigue or headaches when working up close.

Using this method you will take the mystery out of, and make selecting your next pair of eyeglass or reading glasses frames much more fun. - 16651
