photochromic lenses

I have thought long and hard about this topic. Although they theoretically sound like an ingenious invention, in practice, they make everyone look like Elton John (which is not a good thing 99% of the time). The truth is, the small delicate frames of optical glasses just aren't a good look when worn as sunglasses. Especially when the wearer is exposed to medium sunlight, and the lenses are a somewhat 60s translucent brown (Terry Richardson comes to mind).  


The only solution is to find a pair of frames suitable both as optical glasses or as sunglasses. Bonus points if they also have a 'retro vibe' so that the awkward 60s tone looks intentional. Something similar to Wayfarers would work quite well.

I used to have the same problem, wearing glasses makes you have to squint with the eyes every time the sun hits (which doesn't happen that often in norway), but also when swimming. I wonder if there exist swimming googles/glasses in a combination. Well, now I'm a contact lens wearer, and swimming + seeing is like discovering a new world.

Care for the skin. As individuals era, their skin area starts off wrinkling, turning into drier and fewer flexible at the same time. But handling your epidermis will definitely make it smoother and seeking better. Put on sunscreen of at the very least SPF30, hydrate and protect your epidermis with light-weight, free-fitting clothing, if you are out under the sun. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Pro232rgram[/url]
