What glasses to wear?

Reading glasses strength guide

From the age of 40 it’s more likely that your eyes will lose their ability to focus on nearby objects. This is called presbyopia. The good news is that presbyopia isn’t dangerous – it’s just part of the natural aging process of your eyes, and can easily be corrected with reading glasses:

Age 40-45: +1,0
Age 45-50: +1,5
Age 50-55: +2,0
Age 55-60: +2,5
Age 60-65: +3,0 

If you are in doubt between two different strengths, choose the lowest one. But for a precise pair of lenses, you can book a vision test with an optician to get exactly what your eyes need.

Guide to colored glasses

When it comes to color, reading
glasses should add warmth and softness to your face. Go for translucent glasses rather than hard metals, that way they don’t stand out too much, just the right amount to be subtle and stylish.

We have a large selection of reading glasses, sun readers, sunglasses and clear lens glasses in cool shapes and colorful tones. These types of colorful glasses are the latest trend – and we
are 100% sure it will continue for many years.

Gray hair: Adding more color like coral, blue or green creates a nice contrast and brightens up your face.

Blond hair: Look for lighter and softer colors like sand and green.

Brown hair: Brown, coral or tortoise are fantastic options.

Dark hair: Dark colors as black and tortoise will look great on you.

Ginger hair: Colors such as tortoise, blue and black will work wonders.

The checklist for the best glasses

1. Focus on upward lines or a powerful frame. As we get older, everything tends to fall, so ‘hide’ it with a pair of WOW glasses.

2. Think about eyewear as a way to add color and contrast to your style.

3. Get glasses that suit your face shape.

4. In general, the top of the frame should be at the bottom of your brow.

5. Translucent colors are often better than hard metals.

6. Be also aware it’s best to choose glasses in a color that looks good with your hair color rather than your eye color.

But in the end, there aren’t any real rules. Trust your instinct, find what you think will make you shine most! And if you need an extra opinion, we’re here to help.
