COMING SOON: ETNIA FRAME SHOW!

You really don’t want to miss this Frame Show! Etnia Barcelona has agreed to bring their entire collection for YOU to view! Mark your calendars off for March 30th and come on down to Waverley Eye Care to view their ENTIRE COLLECTION.

About the Line:

Etnia Barcelona was founded in the 50’s in Barcelona by Fulgencio Ramo. Ramo worked for years in a factory creating sunglasses in Barcelona. Until finally, he accomplished his dream of creating his own company. His love for colors and sunglasses came from his two daughters. Ramo would bring home sunglasses on Sundays for his daughters to clean. The company was then passed down to his daughters, then his grandson David. David had fresh ideas and two generations of inherent knowledge.

They strive to show important cultural events and art throughout history. All the lines are inspired by different events, art, and cultures throughout Spain and the rest of the world. David introduced color into a brown and black frame world.  Etnia was then born in 2001, when they began selling frames all over Spain.

David focused the line on being free, being human, being multi-ethnic and cultured. The frames boost personalities by adding vibrant blasts of color to your everyday wardrobe. Not only are they extremely fashionable and fun, they are also very comfortable and timeless. Etnia is devoted to capture travel, art, culture, fashion in all of their designs.

Etnia is known for being fun, youthful, vibrant and comfortable. If you don’t like the color of the frame you have on, then no problem they have 6 colors of every frame. But Davids love for color didn’t just stop there, he also created lenses for their sunglasses.

Their sunglasses have some of the best sunglass technology in the world. Their mineral lens is manufactured from pure crystal. They are antiscratch, 70 times sharper and have 3 reflective layers. They take pride on being 100% protective. The lenses don’t reduce visual perception they actually enhance colors. So you can see the world beautifully while protecting your eyes from harsh UV rays. They created 3 types of lenses, a High Definition Lens, a Polarized Lens, and a Photocromic Lens.

With a great company history and fantastic products, why wouldn’t you want to wear Etnia Barcelona?

Having Trouble Sleeping – See Your Eye Doctor.

Most people are familiar with that blue aura glowing from tablets and laptops….it looks cool but is it harming you?  We know that this blue light (now this is blue visible light, not UV light) triggers certain things in the brain.  One is that it can disrupt sleep patterns.  So some people have taken to wearing orange lenses for the last few hours before bed…..others have just put the devices away and read a good old fashioned paper book.

Orange Lenses Can Help You Sleep

How Do I Prevent Nearsightedness?

There is a nearsighted epidemic going on in the world.  In the 1970’s about 20% of NorthAmerican and Asian 20 year olds were nearsighted.  Now it is about 40% of North American and 96% of Asian 20 year olds.

While we don’t fully understand why or how, studies seem to indicate that more time spent outdoors seems to protect against becoming nearsighted.  Studies show that about 90-120 minutes outdoors in the sun can reduce nearsightedness.  What we do know is that it is not related to amounts of upclose work, as the studies have corrected for that.  In fact, there are some schools in Taiwan that have ‘bright-light’ classrooms where the walls and ceilings are made of see through plastic and these students seem to be less nearsighted than in other schools.

So get outside!!!

best brands of glasses

How many glasses should I own?

Great question.

Now I know that I am biased but the non-glasses wearing host of this youtube chat has a good point – glasses can cost a lot, but most of us have at least a couple of $500 plus items that we wear, but we don’t wear everyday.
The question I always would like to ask people is what is the oldest item you are wearing?  I am guessing it would be:
  1. Wedding ring
  2. Watch
  3. Glasses
What is the oldest item you are wearing right now?
