Let’s Talk Myopia

Myopia is a growing concern for parents around the world and in particular in Asian countries. It seems our obsession with staying inside whether to study, watch television, or play video games is affecting our eyesight. Myopia or nearsightedness occurs when the eye goes out of round and becomes elongated, making it harder to see objects further away. Nearsightedness can make it difficult for your child to easily read the blackboard in school and as they come into their teen years, can make driving more difficult and unsafe. Myopia is a progressive condition meaning it worsens over time. Our friends at schedule an exam with Dr. Yen today.

The Evolution Of Eyeglass Styles

Eyeglasses are more than just a helpful tool to help you see clearly. Designer glasses can also be a fashionable accessory that conveys your individuality and unique sense of style. Looking back over the last 50 years, eyewear has come a long way. At one point, thick glasses frames were considered strictly utilitarian, while we now view these Buddy Holly-like glasses as an iconic piece of fashion history. As time has passed, designer eyewear has changed and evolved, but there are certain styles that have made a resurgence and others that have stood the test of time. Explore this infographic from Eye Luv Lucy in San Jose to see what styles of glasses defined the last few decades.
