Eyewear that mixes function with style

Who among us isn’t spending more time in front of the computer, tablet, laptop, phone, even the television these days?

Increased screen time is, well, a sign of our times. Zoom meetings. Video conferences. Virtual happy hours. And coming soon, online classes for many school children.

And let’s not forget about our time outdoors. It is summer, after all.

While eye health is most important, it’s also fun to wear glasses and sunglasses that make a functional statement. Especially these days.

Eyemart Express recently revealed its top five eyewear summer trends. “This season, our eyewear collections are focused on comfort, adding visual interest with color and materials, and versatility – transitioning from screen time to the outdoors,” said Paula Blomquist, chief customer officer for the company.

The trends are:

Crystal. Style meets sophistication and luxury with the modern crystal trend. Plastic and acetate frames from Michael Kors, Vogue and Success are lightweight for ultimate comfort and emphasize natural beauty.

Bold colors. Summer is all about having fun and adding bright spots to the day with bold colors. Colorful frames from Coach, Brooklyn, and Christian Lacroix make a statement in any virtual meeting and can transform an everyday look.

Mixed materials. Timeless and classic silhouettes are modernized with mixed materials. Combinations of acetate and metal add layers of texture to frames from Oscar De La Renta, Robert Graham and Cole Haan.

Personalized sunglasses. Put a personalized touch on summer eyewear and ensure the perfect fit with custom sunglasses. Create a one-of-a-kind pair with endless frame options, lenses and tints. New Coppertone polarized lenses, which provide twice the amount of solar light protection of the average sun tint, are the only lenses recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.

Blue light lenses. Blue-tinted lenses are the perfect addition to any set of frames to protect the eyes from the sun and increased screen time. The lenses filter light to reduce digital strain-inducing glare and eye fatigue.
