  1. Hides tired eyes

Bold glasses are a great way to hide your tired eyes. Makeup prices have skyrocketed over the last few years, with average concealer’s costing around $60! A pair of good non-prescription glasses can cost $60-70. Which in the long run actually works out a lot cheaper. So if you’re too tired to put on makeup or just want to save a bit of extra cash, just put on some specs to cover the shadows and your good to go!

  1. To protect your eyes

Nowadays, most of us spend a significant portion of our day staring at some sort of screen. We check our smartphones when we wake up and throughout the day when on the move, or just bored! When we go to work most of us use a computer or laptop throughout the day. Then we come back home, and put our feet up and watch the Tele. All these items emit high-energy visible (HEV) blue light. HEV blue light is part of the visible light spectrum, and too much exposure to HEV Blue light can potentially lead to loss of vision.


During the day, natural blue light is emitted from the sun. It helps you stay awake and regulate your body clock. This amount of exposure is okay, but the added exposure from artificial light is what concerns optometrists. Common side effects include eye strain, blurred vision, and headaches.


We all hear and know how important it is to stay protected from the sun by wearing sunscreen and sunglasses. So why wouldn’t you protect your eyes from this too?


  1. Makes you look smarter

Most people who wear non-prescription glasses think it makes them look smarter and more intelligent. Although, you have to be really careful when picking out a pair, especially if you are trying to go for the “suave” look. Things like the structure of your face and your overall personality have to be taken into consideration when deciding on whether these post-hipster glasses are for you.
