For many years, human beings have lived on earth reading, writing and engaging in businesses freely without the assistance of eyeglasses. Today, the story is different. The ageing populations across the world has increased, and the young adults are also found wanting when reading and writing. People are now wearing lenses as they have different genetic conditions to poor eyesight.
In one of Africa’s populated countries Nigeria, close to 89 million people are now believed to need corrective eyewear. An estimated 2.5 billion people in India, Africa and China needed glasses in 2018 for good vision. Historically, the eyeglass industry of the 20th century transformed the industry into a statement of grand and glamour. The optometry profession on measuring vision was officially born around 1900. Soon, laws and regulations were passed to control prescriptions and sales points.
During this time, several eyewear brands appeared. Some of them were fake outfits that doled out broken and faulty eyeglasses. The genuine ones popped up from no where, quickly conquered the market and improved the standard. Most people wear glasses at some point in their lives. In fact, most people, especially ageing adults, need corrective lenses that are clearly visible. The young adults simply like the luxury / fashion part of it.
The fashion and optical industries are now considered as seamless integration. Eyeglasses now come in various shapes and sizes, especially the fashionable ones- they come with a special elegance. From another point of view, others have different opinions about glasses. Of course, you can not begrudge people who do not fall into the wearing of glasses. They feel uneasy when people fixedly stare at them. Their instincts make them feel appalling and insecure even after being praised by friends and colleagues. Therefore, they simply hate glasses. But this does not dispute the fact that bespoke eyeglasses are the latest trends now. They are the next luxury trend in the world.
Bespoke glasses are growing very fast as World super stars and celebrities are increasingly patronising bespoke-made spectacles. At almost all the Grammy AwardsAward events held for the past few years, several celebrities including, artist managers and patrons were bang on in bespoke frames. And it is always beautiful seeing them in different shapes, colours and sizes.
Englishman Tom Davies who is the founder of the reputable bespoke eyewear firm, Tom Davies Bespoke Opticians went through the mud before getting the recognition needed. This is because there were great competition at the time. They were part of the brands who came into the system to create an awareness and raised the standards of the eyewear industry. Besides Tom Davies (TD) Bespoke, the likes of Chanel, Cartier, Specsavers, Ray-Ban, Vision Express and Boots are all prestigious eyewear brand worldwide now. Essilor, a French multinational company occupies almost half of the world’s spectacle lenses. Over the past 20 years, they have acquired more than 240 other companies.
Before wearing glasses, the optometrist makes the official measurement before considering your “virtual image”. Unfortunately, many worse glasses with strange shapes and sizes have been put on the market. But this does not contradict the fact that bespokes are the latest trend in the world of glasses. Numerous eyewear brands of points in the system were removed from the shelves due to fierce competition in the market. By the way, the glasses industry still makes a difference.
In the midst of all these, many have questioned why people still wear dark spectacles even when the radiation of the sun is gone to sleep. The fact is, spectacles are worn to protect the eyes from damaging our ultraviolet (UV) rays. They equally help prevent future medical conditions. Sunglasses are a key tool to preventing the early onset of cataracts and the development of macular degeneration, both of which can impair your vision and affect quality of life.
Then again, a number of Ophthalmologists have supported the wearing of sunglasses at any time irrespective of the fashion sense or medicinal attribute at any time of the day. Others have the accession that, the sunglasses are for protection in various ways, so it doesn’t matter when you wear them. Getting a vision aid is vital to humans because the visual sense is very sensitive.
