So Clear Lenses with UV Protection is Actually a Thing

Frames: Kaneko via Luxeye Optical / Lenses: Zeiss / Shirt: Vintage / Jeans: Unpublished (similar) / Faux Leather Jacket: Zara / Booties: Sam Edelman

Ever since I was young I wanted to wear glasses! I even once got a fake pair of glasses that I wore for all of about a week. When I was recently approached to try out the new Zeiss clear lenses that actually protect your eyes from the sun, of course I said yes!

I scheduled an eye exam at Luxeye Optical in Chinatown and picked out the perfect frames! Everyone was SO helpful through the entire process. It also turns out I actually have a slight prescription in my eyes for distance – which is quite interesting. Since I got my glasses in, I have not taken them off (Exhibit A, Exhibit B, and Exhibit C). It’s actually fascinating looking through these lenses because I feel like it makes the image I’m seeing so much clearer.

Diffused Lighting

I’m also a photographer, and sometimes when I’m looking through my glasses, I feel as though I’m looking through my camera lens. Maybe I should look into Zeiss’ camera lenses in the future. The best lighting is actually diffused lighting (the lighting on a cloudy day) and wearing these glasses makes everything look amazing! Our eyes are actually exposed to the sun during this time and really should be protected from the UV rays. That’s where these Zeiss lenses come in, they protect your eyes when you might not be wearing your sunnies.

Glasses @ Work

I wear my glasses a lot during work, too. Being someone that sometimes struggles to keep focused, I feel like the frames really help me. Also, they give me a more studious look and I love that it gives off better perception of me at work, where optics are very important.

Overall, the frames fit and feel amazing. I get so many compliments on the entire look and I love being able to change up my look with them. The glasses can even be your third piece to any look!
