Choosing vision glasses is a complicated process, since we have to take into account parameters like the shape, color, and weight of the frame, plus the right lenses, since we want to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result, without losing in comfort and elegance.
We accept prescriptions from EOPYY.
Furthermore, we can confirm the doctor’s prescription by placing the lenses into a testing frame, before we start the manufacturing process.
During the frame selection, it’s good to already have the prescription, since depending on the lenses’ degrees there are frames that are more appropriate. If, let’s say, there is a case of high-degree nearsightedness, it’s preferable to choose smaller frames made of bone, in order to cover the peripheral thickness of the lens. Otherwise, the frame selection is mostly a matter of the wearer’s taste, as long as it fits, meaning the frame doesn’t apply much pressure or is too loose on the wearer’s temple. In order to achieve harmony, we mostly prefer the upper side of the frame to match the eyebrow line although this is not set in stone, since we often sacrifice symmetry for style.
Someone that chooses metallic glasses should keep in mind that the frame must only touch the skin at the temples and the nose pads; otherwise the frame touching the face will cause the metal to rust, and could possibly create dermatitis on touch. In any case, we are careful not to give the client a tiring fit that will lead into rejecting the glasses’ use.
Fashion and technology cooperate into creating glass frames for all tastes. There are very lightweight frames without an outline made of titanium, which are very discreet. Metallic frames without a lower outline that gives a more inconspicuous image. Classic metallic and bone frames, in many colors and shapes. Last but not least, there are hybrid frames, which combine bone and metal, creating a unique aesthetic result.
The next step is the choice of the lenses, comprised of two large categories, crystal and organic lenses. Depending on the client’s condition, there are monofocal, bifocal and multifocal lenses. With the current technology, there are multiple types of layered lenses that simply reflect light, or even reflect specific colors of light, like blue. The plethora of lenses that are available on the market makes us responsible for recommending the right ones in each case, keeping every customer’s habits and type of work in mind.
Top companies in the field of optic lenses in which we cooperate are UNILENS (NIKON) and BAIRAMOGLOU (ESSILOR).
Cleaning your Lenses
- Always use the eyeglass cleaning cloth. While doing so, don’t apply too much force, as there is a chance of scratching and damaging the lenses.
- Use a mild detergent with water and wash immediately.
- In case of contact with soap, beauty products, sweat etc., clean the lenses immediately. Otherwise, the stains can potentially become hard to remove, and even cause damage to the lenses’ layers.
- If scratched or cracked, the lenses must be replaced, as there is a chance of them getting shattered.
- The glasses should never be placed face down, as they can get easily scratched.
- Don’t neglect your glasses’ and eyes’ annual checkup by a specialist.
- Don’t leave your glasses in eyeglass cleaning fluid for too long, as this can cause damage to your lenses and their layers.
Things to avoid:
- Cleaning your lenses with hot water.
- Exposing your glasses into high temperatures.
- Don’t wear your glasses in places with high temperatures (E.G. sauna)
- Don’t expose your glasses in corrosive chemicals such as hair spray, nail polishes etc.
- Don’t leave your glasses exposed on your car’s dashboard, or on the beach, since the temperature can rise a lot.
