Top 10 Oakley Polarized Sunglasses

 You step outside in your brand new sunglasses. You got them for free with a bunch of other promotional giveaways at your last half marathon. Oh yeah, these look good, you think to yourself.

Making your way to the sidewalk, you press play on the first song in your running mix. Picking up speed, you notice an intense glare reflecting off the pavement, your eyes tearing up slightly due to the burn. Wanting to escape the glare and hoping for a more scenic route, you venture to the park near your house. However, your dark lenses do nothing to enhance the scenery and dull the view instead. You return home defeated, wondering if there is a better way.

Oakley Polarized Lenses

Oakley Polarized Lenses

Oakley has a solution: HDPolarized lenses.

You may have heard the word “polarized” tossed around before, but you’re not really sure what it means. Without getting too much into the science, polarized light is light that bounces off surfaces, reflecting light and creating glare. Polarized lenses filter out polarized light.

In addition to pavement, water and snow also cause glare when the sun reflects off them. Not only is glare annoying, the UV light from the glare can harm your eyes. Oakley polarized lenses block 99% of glare.

Oakley polarized lenses are some of the clearest lenses on the market. While other brands use glue to attach polarized filters, Oakley uses infusion molding to make their lenses. As a result, their one-layer lenses prevent distortion, blur and shifting of objects when you look through them.

You can choose from a wide range of lens options based on the outdoor condition. For example, if you are going to be out on the water, Bronze Polarized or Deep Blue Polarized lenses are really good at filtering out the glare from the water. If you go for a run, OO Red Iridium Polarized or Black Iridium Polarized lenses can block the glare reflected off asphalt.

Not only is Oakley at the top of its game when it comes to polarized sunglasses, they have so many different styles, whether you are looking for a sporty pair of sunglasses for extreme performance, an active pair with some performance features or a lifestyle pair for daily use. Check out our list of top 10 Oakley polarized sunglasses!

Ray-Ban's Rare Prints Augmented Reality

Ray-Ban Wayfarer: The Intersection of Culture and Fashion

Few things in this world have been continuously cool for over five decades. The Ray-Ban Wayfarer is one of those rare gems. From its origins as a symbol of youthful rebellion to its unmatched resurgence in popularity, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer has become an instantly recognizable design. It has, in fact, become an integral player in the history of American fashion, history, and most importantly culture.

The original: Ray-Ban RB2140 Wayfarer Sunglasses.

The original: Ray-Ban RB2140 Wayfarer Sunglasses.

Something special happens at the intersection of culture and fashion where a single item can both shape and define a generation. Like the leather jacket and Levi jeans defined the rebellious, anti-hero sentiments of post-war 1950s youth, so did the Ray-Ban Wayfarer. Design critic Stephen Bayley explained the Wayfarer’s popularity with this generation by saying that its new shape and look “spoke a non-verbal language that hinted at an unstable dangerousness.” While the shape of the Wayfarer, sometimes compared to the peaked fins of 1950s-era Cadillacs, did convey a rebellious nature, it was the reflective quality of the lens that gave the frame its dangerous edge. An inadvertent effect of the frame’s UV protection, the mirror-like appearance of the lens hid the eyes of whoever wore them, creating a feeling of mystery and danger. This ability to hide one’s eyes, and thus one’s true nature, broke the paradigm of innocence and transparency upheld by earlier generations.

It was the most mysterious and rebellious of celebrities who made the Wayfarer popular through the 1950s and 1960s. The list of celebrity Wayfarer fans runs a full spectrum and includes: Muhammad Ali, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Marilyn Monroe and even President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. It is no surprise that this kind of star power resulted in great commercial success for the Ray-Ban Wayfarer. In fact, it was an extremely popular frame through the 1950s and 1960s. Fashion, inevitably, changes with the times, and the Wayfarer’s popularity waned as culture shifted away from the anti-hero rebellion of the 1950s and the social revolution of the 1960s.

The

The “new” kid on the block: The Ray-Ban RB2132 New Wayfarer Sunglasses

It wasn’t until 1983, over a decade after the Wayfarer was extremely popular, when the intersection of pop culture and fashion once again led to an unparalleled explosion of popularity for the Ray-Ban Wayfarer. The Wayfarer slid back into style when Tom Cruise wore them in the famous underwear dance scene in the movie Risky Business. It was during the 1980s when the Wayfarer lost its identity as an accessory to social change and rebellion and became a symbol of 1980s wealth, “preppy” culture and cool social nihilism. Musicians like Madonna, The Smiths, Johnny Marr, Debbie Harry (Blondie), and Elvis Costello were often seen wearing Ray-Ban Wayfarers, and actor Jack Nicholson was rarely seen without them. They were even mentioned in the 1984 Don Henley song “The Boys of Summer,” which is widely considered an anthem of the 1980s. Again, popular culture and star power fueled the Wayfarer’s success.

The 1990s brought in new beliefs, music, and culture that raged against the excesses of the 1980s and the Ray-Ban Wayfarer again saw a dip in its popularity. A timeless style, however, cannot be held down for too long. While the 1990s and early 2000s were not the best years for the Wayfarer, it would again become a popular style across a wider base than ever before.

It was, as in the past, a shift in the cultural paradigm that brought the Wayfarer back to the forefront of fashion. The rise of the hipster, who wears them as an ironic nod to throwback American fashions, the postmodern interest in reviving retro styles, and the current focus on the self have all spurred the recent popularity of the Ray-Ban Wayfarer.

Classic design with a

Classic design with a “squared” off look: The Ray-Ban RB2151 Wayfarer Square Sunglasses.

Wayfarers are now available in a nearly endless selection of colors, prints, and patterns, so that everyone can use them as a tool of self expression. Ray-Ban evens offers slightly altered versions of the original Wayfarer, like the Ray-Ban RB2132 New Wayfarer, which sports the iconic sculpted temples of the original and a new, softer eye shape. The RB2151 Wayfarer Square is also a spin-off of the classic design with a more defined square shape. Ray-Ban, of course, still makes RB2140 The Original Wayfarer. It is available in countless colors including: basic black, tortoise shell, blue gradient, red, white, pink, and even turquoise. The available frames do not stop at just color. They can found in Ray-Ban Rare Prints including: black and grey tile, light wood, London cityscape, transparent color mosaics, and a collage of stylized guitars. The range of new colors and patterns allows people to celebrate an iconic and timeless design while still expressing their own style and one of a kind personality. Self-expression is, of course, a major part of today’s culture. This wave of the Wayfarer’s popularity is another example of how fashion and culture come together to influence and define one another.

The Original Wayfarer (RB2140) is available in several colors, patterns, and Ray-Ban Rare Prints on FramesDirect.com. FramesDirect is also proud to offer the New Wayfarer (RB2132) and the Wayfarer Squared (RB2151) in many attractive colors and prints. They are all genuine Ray-Ban products made premium quality lenses. Many colors are also available with Ray-Ban’s expertly polarized lenses.

Top 10 Character Defining Glasses on TV

Find a pair of glasses to define your character. I’m not talking about your personality. I’m talking about seeing through the eyes of a television character.

Check out our top 10 TV characters whose lives you could step into with a simple change of eyewear!

Top 10 TV Characters with Glasses

  1. Who wouldn’t want to be Liz Lemon? This 30 Rock character is beautiful, successful and head writer on one of the hottest television shows on NBC. She’s also neurotic, insecure, and self-conscious. Either way, you can look like the head writer of TGS with Tracy Jordan with the Corinne McCormack Nicole Readers. These oval tortoise frames, similar to the glasses Tina Fey wears in the show, will make you feel just as much of a train-wreck as Liz.
  2. Without his glasses, he is Superman. With them, Clark Kent is a mild-mannered reporter who has a 70-year history of being known for his dark frames. Just as the interpretation of Clark Kent has changed over the years, so has his eyewear. In the Adventures of Superman TV series during the 1950s, George Reeves becomes the wisecracking, crime reporter with glasses similar to the Tommy Hilfiger 1033 Eyeglasses. Theses rounded, square-shaped frames make for a good disguise when you aren’t flying above the clouds. During the 90s with Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Dean Cain brings a new interpretation of Clark with glasses similar to the Shuron Ronsir Timberline Eyeglasses. These frames also hide his identity well, as all his coworkers come in contact with Superman many times and never recognize him.
  3. Ray-Ban RX5228 Eyeglasses

    Ray-Ban RX5228 Eyeglasses

  4. Going for the adorkable look, Jess Day in the show New Girl personifies a combination of nerdy and cutesy, whether she is narrating her life through song or donning her large fake teeth. To go along with her indie manic-pixie-dream-girl style, Jess occasionally wears some large rimmed glasses, similar to the Ray-Ban RX5228 Eyeglasses. Just when you thought that Zooey Deschanel couldn’t be any more bubbly, these rectangular frames add that extra level of quirkiness.
  5. The world of advertising in the 1960s has never been so glamorous. And with the 60s being known for the fashion decade it was, it’s only natural that the characters in Mad Men wear the iconic styles. Played by Jon Hamm, advertising executive Don Draper, in his sleek and fashionable suits styled after the era, completes the image with some vintage-style aviators, similar to the RayBan RB3136 Caravan Sunglasses. Put on these square-shaped aviators, and you too can embody the nostalgia and arrogance of the Don’s character at the same time.
  6. Cartoon characters can have bad eyesight when it is convenient for their personality and the storyline. On Scooby-Doo, Velma Dinkley‘s glasses prove that she is the smart one in all ways except figuring how not to lose her glasses every time the gang is being chased by another masked monster. Looking very similar to the Lafont Foujita Eyeglasses, these square-shaped frames give Velma the ability to solve the mystery.
  7. Luxottica LU1222T Eyeglasses

    Luxottica LU1222T Eyeglasses

  8. Most offices have that person who takes himself/herself too seriously, acts superior to coworkers and has an enduring love for the system. In The Office, Dwight Schrute, played by Rainn Wilson, is that person. In your office, that person could be you with Dwight’s glasses. Similar to the Luxottica LU1222T Eyeglasses, these frames demand respect. Now whether people actually listen to that demand is a different story.
  9. Even though Ugly Betty has been off the air for a few years, most people still remember America Ferrera’s look in the show: glasses, braces and no fashion sense. While her character evolved throughout the series, Betty‘s glasses remained constant. Similar to the Lafont Tara Eyeglasses, these red, oval frames with slightly angular sides give Betty a personality that makes her stand out.
  10. Shuron Sidewinder Eyeglasses

    Shuron Sidewinder Eyeglasses

  11. Balancing out Don’s arrogance in Mad Men is Harry Crane, played by Rich Sommer, media buyer for the advertising firm. As part of Harry’s determined personality, he wears a wayfarer-style similar to the Shuron Sidewinder Eyeglasses. The black fading to clear of these vintage-style eyewear frames will give you the power to move up in your company, just like Harry did.
  12. Eyeglasses can support the darker side of a character, as they do with Walter White in Breaking Bad. The series follows this high school chemistry teacher, played by Bryan Cranston, as he deals with lung cancer and turns to a life of crime to make money for his family. As Walter gets sicker and falls deeper into his secret life, his clothes and hair change, but his eyeglasses, similar to the Giorgio Armani 864 Eyeglasses, stay the same.
  13. Movie stars have always known how to rock sunglasses, whether in television or in their real life. That’s why Uma Thurman wears the Burberry BE4103 Sunglasses so well in the new musical drama Smash, where she plays a famous actress who wants to star as Marilyn Monroe in a Broadway musical. Thurman pulls off the look of confidence and determination in these oversized frames.

Baroque Sunglasses by Versace

Musicians Rock Versace Sunglasses

Looking for something to wear for your next music video? Try the Versace VE2120 Sunglasses. But only the Gold version. Celebrities don’t wear the Silver version. At least Lady Gaga, Omarion, Kid Cudi, Ciara, Flo-Rida and Cyhi Da Prynce don’t.

Versace 2120 Sunglasses

Versace 2120 Sunglasses are popular with celebrities of both sexes.

All of these musicians, including the men in these sunglasses originally intended for women, claim the Gold Versace VE2120 Sunglasses as a bold fashion statement.

So why these sunglasses?

To begin, the inspiration behind the sunglasses in the collection is actress January Jones, the face of Versace accessories, who is known for her fashion-forward choices.

These cat-eyed frames look different from traditional sunglasses, and they look even more different from traditional cat-eyes. The lens shape is highly unique, forming to the shape of the bridge. The combination of the lens and frame front looks like two wings, which can give a whole new meaning to the idea of leading with your best asset but instead letting that asset lead and fly away with you.

Probably the best feature of these sunglasses is that the iconic Versace Medusa head, bolted through the lens in the top corners, has the illusion of traveling through the air. Going along with the flying motif, when viewed from the side, the gold or silver of the temples looks like wind left behind by Medusa.

The details on these Versace sunglasses give them a beauty and complexity that make the frames popular with so many celebrities.

Steve Jobs Eyeglasses…Or Should That be iGlasses?

Steve Jobs Eyeglasses…Or Should That be iGlasses?

So you’ve been inspired by the late Steve Jobs to change the world in breathtaking technological ways that will forever shape and influence the course of humanity? Great! But before you start tinkering away in your garage on the next big hi-tech wonder gadget; let’s make sure you look the part.

Steve Jobs was not only known for spinning out a string of creative gadgetry and businesses, but also for being quite a snappy dresser, if by snappy you mean predictable. By wearing the same thing every day, Jobs was able to ensure that none of his brain cells were wasted on answering questions like “Do these cuff links match this belt?” but were all focused on answering questions like “How can I make a telephone play Scrabble?”

Jobs will be forever remembered as the mega genius in jeans and a black shirt, but there is another part of his daily wardrobe that shouldn’t be overlooked: his eyeglasses!

Steve Jobs’ iconic rimless eyeglasses with round frames were the perfect complement to his personal style. They blended in so effortlessly with his appearance that you probably didn’t even know he wore glasses at all until you read this. Well guess what, he did! And you can too!

With the Savile Row Round Diaflex Rimless Eyeglasses from FramesDirect.com you can grace your face with the elegant brilliance of the Apple mastermind and be well on your way to inventing the next big world-changing innovation.

While Jobs’ eyeglasses were a custom made design, these classy Savile Row frames are nearly identical. They are made by hand in London, England and you can get them with single vision or progressive prescriptions. Added bonus: these were also worn by Eric Clapton!

With these frames you’ll be well on your way to changing humanity for the better with fantastic, computerized gadgets. I would recommend staying away from the smartphone market, though. That one is pretty well covered. What other unassuming device could you turn into a technological wonder that people would wait in line for all night? How about a toaster that’s also a universal remote!

Eyeglass Books for Kids

Eyeglass Books for Kids

For kids, visiting the eye doctor and getting glasses can be a stressful time. Not only do they have to suffer through the somewhat alien experience of an eye exam (from a kid’s point of view anyway,) but then they have to get used to wearing a new pair of children’s eyeglasses all the time. For a kid who’s never had glasses, wearing new glasses can be physically distracting, and bring with them the fear of being made fun of by other children.

Here’s a few books you can share with your kids to make the experience of getting glasses a bit easier to deal with and the idea of having glasses enjoyable.

Arthur’s Eyes
After realizing that he is having trouble seeing, Arthur soon finds out he needs glasses. When Arthur returns to school with his new glasses his classmates tease him. Arthur decides not to wear his glasses, but in doing so finds himself in a some pretty embarrassing situations. Eventually, thanks to the help and support of his friends, Arthur finds that wearing glasses isn’t so bad after all.
Fancy Nancy: Spectacular Spectacles
In this addition to the Fancy Nancy I Can Read Series, Nancy’s friend Bree gets some new glasses. Nancy finds the glittery lavender frames to be simply spectacular, and after Bree’s story of her visit to the eye doctor, Nancy begins to wonder if her own eyesight is getting a little blurry.
Baby Duck and the Bad Eyeglasses
Poor Baby Duck. She’s just gotten new eyeglasses and she hates the way they make her look. Luckily Grandpa shows up with a wonderful surprise, and soon Baby Duck’s opinion about her new look changes.
Luna and the Big Blur: A Story for Children Who Wear Glasses
Things are bad enough when you have a weird name, but things get much worse for Luna when she has to wear glasses! Luna decides that wearing glasses is just too much. Kids will love all the funny mishaps Luna gets herself into when she stops wearing her eyeglasses. In the end, Luna learns that wearing glasses isn’t so bad after all.
I Really Absolutely Must Have Glasses
Lola has decided that she absolutely MUST have glasses, so she is going to see the eye doctor. This book helps young children learn what to expect when visiting the eye doctor for the first time and shows them that there is absolutely nothing wrong with wearing glasses.

Do you have a child who wears glasses? Were you a child who had to start wearing glasses? What tips and advice do you have for people with young children who are experiencing the eye doctor and wearing glasses for the first time?
