Beautiful with glasses also

Most of the time, ladies who wear glasses find it difficult to achieve a makeup look that doesn’t contrast with the frames of their glasses, or simply forgo putting on makeup. In fact, a pair of glasses can be a fashionable accessory, especially if it’s in harmony with your facial features.

Women who wear glasses should pay particular attention to eye make-up, and magnifying mirrors are extremely effective. Here are some tips on how to make sure your glasses don’t detract from your appearance.

Myopia glasses have the disadvantage of making your eyes look smaller. Therefore, dark eye shadow or eyelid contouring should be avoided. Choose bright and shiny colours such as pink, lavender, beige, grey or white. To achieve a big, bright eye effect, you can apply a lighter colour blush to the inner corner of the eye and a slightly darker shade to the centre of the eyelid, and a progressively darker colour outwards. Apply mascara liberally to further increase the size of your eyes.

Ladies who suffer from high hyperopia and wear positive lenses are familiar with the problem of substantially enlarged eyes. To compensate for this effect, a clever make-up technique can be used. For example, using a matte eyeshadow of dark colours (brown, grey or shades of green) to achieve a visual minimisation of the eyes. Liquid or creamy consistency eyeshadow are recommended products compared to powder ones, as the shadows amplify the particles of the eyeshadow, especially in the case of glitter.

Makeup should be applied carefully, as the lenses will accentuate any mistakes. Make sure your make-up is waterproof and transfer-resistant to avoid smudging of make-up in the lower frame and cushion area.

Contact lenses can always be an alternative, as they give you absolute freedom, not just for make-up. In spring and summer, they are preferred by most spectacle wearers.

So you have to look beautiful in any situation. We look forward to welcoming you to our offices to offer you the perfect solution for your eyesight and beyond.

Have confidence. See for yourself!


How do you SEE the New Year?

How do you SEE the New Year?

P.S. Do you remember when you were at the last optometric check?

January is the month of resolutions.

Did you know that ideally, every year you should go to the optometrist? This will help you to be sure that your eyes are the healthiest, although some of us have to visit the specialist more often. The vision can change quite a bit over the course of a year, especially for those who turn 50 and it is important to know how often you have to go out of control.

However, to help you, here are 8 signs that should prompt you to visit us:

  • Your eyes are red, dry, itchy or you see stains, “stars” or floating spots.
  • You have diabetes or a health problem that can affect your eyes. Also, if you have a family history of conditions such as diabetes or glaucoma, you may need to consult more often, especially after age 50.
  • You can’t remember when you were the last time at the office. If it’s been over a year, it’s time to schedule!
  • You have difficulty driving at night or seeing traffic signs in the dark.
  • After spending a long time in front of the computer, your eyes are red, you have a headache and / or blurred vision.
  • You get motion sick, you are dizzy or you have problems when pursuing a moving target.
  • You tend to keep the books further or close one eye so you can read clearly.
  • You suffered an accident or trauma to the head.

Schedule a visit to the optometrist for 2020. We are waiting for you at the cabinet!

Blue light? How do smart devices affect our vision?

Blue light? How do smart devices affect our vision?

Think about how often you use smart device screens, how often you watch TV or how many hours you work in front of your monitor or laptop. Currently, about 93% of adults use these devices for at least two hours a day, and more than 60% use them five or more hours a day. After just a few hours in front of the monitor, our eyes become tired, with symptoms including a general tiredness, headaches, blurred vision or red, irritated or dry eyes. More than 50% of people who use this type of device experience this type of eye fatigue.

But what is actually the cause?

Smart devices and some energy-saving lighting systems emit high-frequency blue light. Research has shown that blue light is particularly important for regulating melatonin in the human body, a process that influences the biological circadian rhythm and overall well-being.
However, on the other hand, there is evidence that long-term exposure to blue-violet light contributes to photo-chemical damage to the retina, increasing the risk of macular degeneration (a phenomenon known as “dangerous blue light”). It has also been shown that exposure to blue light before bedtime can cause sleep disturbances.

What to do?

It is particularly important that there is adequate filtering of blue-violet light according to its intensity. Filtering blue-violet light at 440 nm and shorter wavelengths has a minor impact on the circadian rhythm while providing protection against macular degeneration.
Lens enhancements for glasses, or so-called BlueProtect lenses, partially reflect blue-violet light from artificial sources, preventing harmful light from reaching the eye. These treatments reduce the transmission of harmful blue light, while maintaining a high level of transmission at the wavelength needed to regulate the cicadian rhythm, and this would be the difference between quality lenses, compared to those that totally reflect light, and induce a mirror effect, the transmissibility of light through the lens is greatly diminished.

I’m Alina Petric, optometrist at Best Optic, and I’m waiting for you on the last Tuesday of this month to see for yourself what blue light protection really means.
