Glasses for Golf

With the Masters Golf Championship right around the corner, Good Looks Eyewear wants you to be prepared when you are out on the Links. Serious golfers pay attention to their lenses. At Good Looks Eyewear, we have our own lab. That means we are able to personally guarantee that our lens products exceed industry standards and are personally customized for you.sport-golf-sunglasses-landing-2

Progressive lenses are specifically designed for golf and allow the patient’s prescription to be manipulated to accommodate any distance.

Polarized lenses block out the sun’s harmful UV rays and let you see straight down the fairway with out any glare.

Now that you have the lenses that help your game, it’s time to pick some frames that fit you. With the head motion that is involved in swinging the club, you want a pair of frames that are sure to stay on your head. Oakley’s are famous for their wrap frames. These specific pair of glasses hug your head tight enough so they won’t go flying off, but loose enough so you don’t feel constricted. They are the perfect fit for everybody. Maui Jim is another famous brand worn by athletes. Most of the Maui Jim frames offer over-the-ear  arms that refrain from sliding off your face.

Any frame purchased at Good Looks Eyewear are personally fit to your head’s own unique shape. Our ABO certified opticians are the best in town and always happy to assist you with any inquiries you may have.

Children’s Eyewear Trends

Good Looks Eyewear offers awesome designer glasses for children. Here are some trends that appeal to children, that also help them find a look of their own:
  1. Designers have taken cool and classic designs that work for adults and scaled them down for kids. Don’t be surprised if your child wants eyeglasses that look a lot like yours.
  2. Lilly Pulitzer is a brand designed specifically for girls that have an eye for colors and patterns. For sporty children, Flexon offers a sleek design with a bendable frame that won’t break.
  3. Spring hinges, strong and flexible frame materials and impact-resistant polycarbonate all help protect your child’s eyes — as well as your financial investment in his/her eyewear.
  4. Don’t forget about sun glasses for kids. Wearing sunglasses will protect your child from the sun’s harmful UV rays, and lower the risk of vision problems as an adult.
  5. For the child who is fast becoming a teenager, eyewear fashion is increasingly important. Designer Eyewear from Ray Ban is one of the most popular brands of frames on the market.

Glasses to Fit your Personality

Because people generally recognize you by your face, the eyeglasses you choose to wear are a very real part of your identity. Whether you want to appear sophisticated, fun-loving, youthful, conservative or style-conscious, the right eyewear can help you shape how you are perceived. And if you choose to wear only one pair of eyeglasses for everything you do, that says something about you, too! The first step, according to eyewear styling experts, is to consider the different aspects of your life. What do you really want your eyewear for? What are the different activities you participate in? What type of work do you do?

Eyeglasses for Serious Business

To help instill trust and confidence among a wide variety of your business clients and colleagues, it’s usually best to stay with conservative frame shapes and colors. Consider these choices to enhance your professional image:

  • Classic shapes such as ovals, rectangles and almonds.
  • Traditional colors of gold, silver, brown, gray and black.

Eyeglasses That Showcase Your Creativity and Fashion Savvy

 

One way to show your creative, fashionista side is with modern shapes, such as geometric designs in thicker and larger plastic frames. Many modern metal frames also can be creative in appearance. Today’s more fashionable, larger-sized eyeglasses also are an option, as are more unusual colors — such as blue, green and purple. Multi-colored laminates are another possibility, as are flower patterns and animal prints.

Glasses for the Modern Baby Boomer or Senior

Just because you’re eligible for an AARP card doesn’t mean you have to wear stodgy, old-fashioned glasses. And men: get rid of those giant metal frames that dominate your face! Certain colors also can make you look younger. We suggest gunmetal, deep browns and burgundy for men and lighter, shinier hues for women.

Eyeglasses for Students

Unusual shapes, bright colors, larger sizes and interesting details such as color laminations, all are readily available in a variety of prices and brand names.

Eyewear for the Busy Mom or Dad

For the busy mom (or dad) on-the-go with little time to worry about the latest trends in eyewear, a basic yet stylish pair of glasses might work best. Ovals, upswept rectangles and soft cat-eye shapes are very functional and still look great.

Glasses for the Weekend Warrior

Most adults live dual lives — their “normal” 9-to-5 weekday life and their (usually) more active life on the weekends. For the best comfort, performance and safety during “weekend warrior” hours, choose at least one pair of sport sunglasses, sport eyeglasses or even just a more casual, sports-suggestive eyeglass frame. Styling can range from wraparounds to more conventionally shaped eyeglasses and sunglasses. Sporty looks can include bright or neon colors, stripes and modern combinations of metal and plastic materials.

Anti-Reflective Lenses

ANTI-REFLECTIVE LensesBright Lights, Big Glare

Driving at night can be challenging under the best of circumstance, but battling the glare from oncoming headlights can make a stressful situation even worse. Nowadays, you can beat the glare by opting for anti-reflective (AR) lenses.

Technological advances in anti-glare coatings virtually eliminate glare by allowing 99.5 percent of available light to pass through your lenses. That means fewer visual distractions when you’re sitting behind the wheel, and less eyestrain when you’re sitting in front of a computer (or any) screen for hours.

There’s another advantage to going anti-glare—you’ll look better. Your lenses will appear clearer, practically invisible, allowing people to focus on your eyes and not the reflection in your glasses.

By the way, the AR coating is applied in our full-service eyewear lab, allowing for personalized, hands-on production of your glasses.

Visit our Good Looks Eyewear stores in either Pittsburgh or Cranberry and ask our ABO certified Opticians about AR lenses.

Contact us at the Pittsburgh location or the Cranberry location if you have any question about Anti-Reflective Lenses.

2016 Spring Fashion

Setting your sights on spring styles and colors? Here’s a look at seven 2016 Spring fashion trends that are sure to turn a few heads:

  1.    Round and Round

The shape of things to come this spring is definitely round, particularly when donning sunglasses. Round frames are retro and contemporary, funky and sophisticated—in other words, just right.

  1.   Crazy Contours

Strange, futuristic shapes abound. Let’s just say if you’re looking to keep a low profile, this is not for you. Spring promises a potpourri of octagons, stars, hearts and super-sized squares and circles, not to mention a few silhouettes that truly defy description.

  1.    Nine Lives

First introduced in the ’50s as the essence of femininity, the cat’s eye frame has never really gone out of style. The 2016 variation on this theme takes us from house cat to wildcat with bold, dramatic designs. Understatement is not this cat’s meow.

  1.   Saluting Aviators

As the name suggests, aviator frames were once the exclusive domain of World War II fighter pilots. For those looking to land a pair this spring, consider modern updates like round lenses, metal bridges and translucent plastic frames.

  1. Pretty in Pink

When Pantone, the purveyor of all things color related, announced that Rose Quartz was its 2016 color of the year, the fashion world took notice. Not surprisingly, frames featuring the kinder, gentler shades of rosy pinks, pale blues, dusty greys and misty taupes are making their debut this spring.

  1. Focus on Lenses

From clear to very (very) dark and just about every color of the rainbow in between, lenses are asserting themselves as both fashionable and functional. Just look at the ombre lens: it’s dark at the top and lighter at the bottom, giving you stylish practicality.

  1. When Bling is the Thing

Sometimes frames are about the embellishments and adornments. This spring anything goes, including animal-print patterns, jewels, colorful gemstones and crystals.

The Pittsburgh and Cranberry locations of Good Looks Eyewear has all of your Spring fashion trends. Please stop in to either location to find your look for Spring. Contact us at either store for any and all inquiries.

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month

Currently, more than 3 million people in the United States have glaucoma, approximately 120,000 are blind from glaucoma, accounting for 9% to 12% of all cases of blindness. Glaucoma is called “the sneak thief of sight” since there are no symptoms and once vision is lost, it’s permanent. As much as 40% of vision can be lost without a person noticing. Those at higher risk include people of African, Asian, and Hispanic descent. Other high-risk groups include: people over 60, family members of those already diagnosed, diabetics, and people who are severely nearsighted. Regular eye exams are especially important for those at higher risk for glaucoma, and may help to prevent unnecessary vision loss. Talk to friends and family about glaucoma. If you have glaucoma, don’t keep it a secret. Let your family members know.
