2 Unique Types of Eyewear

When you have been wearing the same pair of glasses or contact lenses for a long time, it can begin to get a little bit dull. If you are getting tired with your eyewear, you may be looking for ways in which you can jazz up the way you look when using aids for your vision. Below is a guide to some of the more unique eyewear options which you have when it comes to improving your vision.


A monocle is a small, round lens that sits in front of one eye. You may have seen these items worn in movies, typically by a professor or upper-class gentleman. While monocles used to be very popular, they are not seen as frequently these days. However, the rise of hipster fashion now means that Victorian fashion is becoming extremely cool once again. The advantage of wearing a monocle is that you do not need to wear glasses all day long. You can quickly whip it out when you need to consult something. However, this means that wearing a monocle is only really an option if you can see reasonably well and only need help when reading or looking at items at a close distance.

Coloured contact lenses

Contact lenses are a great alternative to glasses. However, if you are someone who finds the invisibility of contact lenses quite boring, you may wish to opt for coloured ones. A coloured contact lens will transform the colour of your eyes. When wearing coloured lenses, the whites of your eyes will be transformed so they appear to be the same colour as the lens. Contact lenses are available in a wide range of colours which means you can match your eyewear to your outfit. You can even go completely crazy and order UV contact lenses which will glow in the dark. However, you should also be aware that some coloured lenses may cause a considerable degree of shock and surprise when you first show them to friends and family or people out and about on the street.

If you are interested in finding out more about unique types of eyewear which can help you to jazz up your face, you should get in touch with your local optometrist or eye clinic today. The staff there will be happy to test your vision before discussing the different types of eyewear which are suitable for you. Get in touch today and find out more.
