Proper Eye-wear for Winter Driving...
Posted by Amanda Ferrise on 1/22/2014 to Just for Fun

...and the risk of Snow Blindness!  With crazy winter weather still ahead, we have to remember to protect our eyes.  Not many people are aware that Snow Blindness is a real thing and it can damage your eye sight without the proper eye-wear protection.

Snow Blindness, according to Emedicine.medcape.com is a temporary loss of vision and inflammation of the cornea, caused by exposure of the eyes to bright sunlight and ultraviolet rays reflected from snow or ice.  Driving in the winter months can be tricky and we here at PeeperSpecs want to make sure that you are protecting your eyes from experiencing Snow Blindness.

The ultimate way to beat Snow Blindness is to of course wear protective sunglasses and we have some great selections for you to try!  Please take a look at our popular UVA/UVB protection sunglasses options:

BOHO Reading Sunglasses - orange

388_new

Well Bred Reading Sunglasses - tortoise

593_new

Crossroads - black (mirrored lens)

From our PeeperSpecs family to yours, wear your protective Peepers and drive safe!

Peepers Set it Straight on Reading Glasses & Vision Myths
Posted by Amanda Ferrise on 11/4/2013 to Just for Fun

We here at Peepers have heard it all!  You may not believe that there are myths out there about reading glasses and vision, but you will find that these myths go way back to ancient times.

We peeps will set the facts straight on common myths regarding reading glasses and vision.  True-or-False

Reading Glasses Myths

Wearing  over-the-counter readers will cause you to become dependent on them: NOT TRUE

Reading glasses are designed to correct blurry vision.  Seeing clearly, since clear vision with readers is preferable to uncorrected vision, you may start to notice that you need and want to wear your reading glasses more often.  Even though it may seem that you are becoming dependent on you readers, you are simply getting used to seeing clearly.  "CAN YOU SEE ME NOW?!"

Wearing readers makes your eyes stronger:  NOT TRUE 

Reading glasses only makes your vision clear, they do not have any impact on your actual prescription.  Your prescription will change the same amount even if you wear readers everyday or not.

Reading in dim light is harmful to your eyes: NOT TRUE

By reading in dim lighting, you are NOT damaging your eyes.  However, good lighting does make reading easier and can prevent eye fatigue.  When your eyes have to work harder to see, they become tired and the strain could cause headaches or itchy eyeballs.

Eating carrots can improve your vision: NOT TRUE

Carrots, of course have lots of vitamin A, which is essential for sight.  But many other foods also have this vitamin.  A well-balanced diet, with or without carrots provides all the vitamin A necessary for good vision!  "Eat your veggies kids!"

People with weak eyes should avoid reading fine print: NOT TRUE 

It has been said that people with weak eyes or people who wear readers will damage their eyes sooner if they read fine print.  The concept of an eye as a muscle is incorrect. Think of the eye more as a camera.  A camera will not wear out quicker just because it is used to photograph close detail. You can use your eyes without any fear of wearing them out!

Are "Google Glasses" in your future?
Posted by Laura Sadenwater on 4/10/2012 to Just for Fun
While browsing around online yesterday, I stumbled across THE weirdest photo, which some of you may have already encountered since the April 4th release of Google's Project Glass.  See below:



Naturally curious, I spent some time researching what in the world this woman had on her face.  I was astounded by what I found.
 
Apparently, we aren't bombarded with enough technology on a daily basis.  Google has created a prototype that allows wearers of the 'Google Glasses' to schedule meetings, video chat and check the weather using only their voice, while the glasses project images right in their line of vision.

Here's what Google had to say regarding their latest innovation:
"We think technology should work for you—to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.  A group of us from Google[x] started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do.  Please follow along as we share some of our ideas and stories. We’d love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?" 
 

The YouTube video Project Glass, created by Google's Google X lab already has over 11 million views!
Click here to watch!

So, we're curious....is this
something any of you would invest in?
Match Your Face Shape With The Right Frame!
Posted by lindsay sammann on 4/10/2012 to Just for Fun
Two things to keep in mind: 
 
1. Your frames should contrast your face shape. 

2. The overall frame width should be pretty close to your   overall face width.
