Optician, Christopher Rahe chimes in with fashion and health advice for your eyes: 

Why is it so important to get your eyes checked? 

The eye is arguable your most important organ - a yearly comprehensive eye exam is about much more than determining whether or not you need a visual correction. In addition to regulating or treating eye maladies and diseases - other health issues can be seen by tracking gradual changes in the eye. This is especially true for people who have a history of diabetes, for example. 

Why should you wear sunglasses in the Winter?

Due to the low-lying sun and the presence of snow and ice, glare is worse in the Winter than in the Summer. A polarized sun-glass - which can be made in your prescription - is the perfect solution for the glare.  

What are the current trends for eyeglasses and sunglasses? 

Glasses are becoming more colorful than before. Gone are the standard blacks and tortoises - now you will be seeing more purples, greens and bright reds. People are also appreciating the craftsmanship and innovation in their glasses. They are caring less about the name emblazoned across the temple.

Is there a good rule of thumb for matching up frames with face shapes? 

There is no hard-and-fast rule as to what will good on you. Size of frame and a good fit are much more important than shape. One hint I like to give is that glasses look best when the lines of the frame parallel and complement the brow line and jawline. The best way to determine if a pair of glasses is a good fit for you is to come on down and actually put it on your noggin. 

What is new and exciting with EYESPOT? 

We introduced a new line to EYESPOT called Legre Iota. These glasses are designed by opticians - so we know that they can hold many different kinds of prescriptions with ease. They are made from materials that were originally designed for the aeronautic industry - their high-grade polymer is lightweight, heat-resistant, anti-bacterial and FDA approved for use in medical devices. And they look super cool. Are they everybody's idea of fashionable? Probably not. But they will look and feel great on you! They don't have to be a high-fashion name slapped onto the side nor do they have a high-fashion price tag. 

Any fashion tips you can offer for eyeglasses and sunglasses?

You should have just as many pairs of spectacles and sun-wear as you do expensive handbags and shoes.
