Calgary eyeglasses

Did you know that Benjamin Franklin invented bifocals all the way back in 1784? This was because he suffered from both myopia and presbyopia. Thankfully, the style of glasses has evolved and modernized, improved and advanced, in the last 200 odd years. Now, when you go to your local Calgary eyewear center, you will be able to find the latest and most functional fashions.

Most modern glasses, like the kinds you will find in any Calgary eyewear center, are typically supported by pads on the bridge of the nose and by the temple arms (sides) which are placed over the ears. These are much more comfortable and stylish than the models of Benjamin Franklin or even the cardinal Hugh de Provence, who was the earliest recorded wearer of eyeglasses. The pictorial evidence of his eyeglasses was from a portrait of him reading in 1352.

Although, this modern style of eyeglasses, the kind that are held at the temples and pass over the ears, was developed approximately 400 years later, around the year 1727, possibly by the British optician Edward Scarlett. Now, there are about 225 million americans who wear some form of corrective lens.

The folks at any Calgary eyewear center will be able to guide you to whatever kind of eyeglasses you want, and will be able to offer you suggestions as to what kind of glasses might compliment your head shape. Sure, your optometrist can give you all the info on the eye that you could ever want, but chances are they will not be able to tell you that if you have an oblong head then you will want tall frames to help create a shorter looking face.

So visit a Calgary eyewear stores and see about getting into a pair of fashionable and functional glasses. Help from Calgary optics will improve your self image with smart, trendy Calgary eyewear glasses that you can only find there.

    Wow. I had no idea that different kinds of glasses complimented different kinds of head shapes. Thats crazy. How does one find out what kind of shape that one has?

  2. Clarence May says:

    Well you can have one of a few different shapes. There is oblong, square, diamond, heart, oval, round or triangle. Look at yourself in the mirror and see what kind of shape you have.
