Eye Glasses Colorado: Buyer Beware With Online Glasses

eye glasses colorado
The Internet is great for a lot of things: contacting friends, reading the news, looking up facts, and finding great deals on items you want to buy. Indeed, the expanse of the Internet holds discounts often inconceivable in retail stores. But not all deals should be trusted, since it’s impossible to test the quality, sizing, and sturdiness of items you find in cyberspace. This holds true for clothes, shoes, and especially eye glasses.  Instead of gambling on low-cost, low-quality internet glasses, come to Vision Care Specialists and browse the best... Read More

Not to mention, the entire experience might have felt a little impersonal. Enter Vision Care Specialists, a four-location eye care practice located across the Denver metro area. We took it upon...

Denver Eye Care Advice: Glasses to the Job, Contacts to the Bar!

Stereotypes about glasses-wearers are as old as glasses themselves. Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans were already experimenting with gems, globes, and glasses filled with water to magnify their vision, and eventually, after tremendous discoveries in optics by Arab physicists, the first pince-nez glasses were invented in 13th century Italy (a few decades before Dante’s Divine Comedy). Their subsequent use by clerics, scholars, and poets—the intellectual elite who needed them to work and also had the money to afford them—won glasses their long-standing reputation as a mark of intelligence, professionalism, and creativity....

School is now in session, and parents everywhere are making sure their children are well equipped for the new year, patching up backpacks, replacing outgrown T-shirts, buying shiny new folders and notebooks…but don’t forget that one essential item that can make all the difference for your child’s education–glasses.

Even if a certain style gets its start (or comeback) on the runway, it rarely makes a big splash before it graces the red carpet. Thankfully, Hollywood is full of actors who are bold enough to pick up styles that might otherwise be dismissed as shocking, geeky, or passé.  We here in the eyeglasses business certainly know how much celebrities help popularize and preserve certain...

Colorado Eye Glasses: Make Sure You Have the Right Vision Solution for Every Occasion

I am severely myopic, and, since I hit 45, have had a harder and harder time reading.  I spend 8-10 hours a day on a computer, play racquetball 2-3 times a week, am an avid skier, and, in whatever free time remains, like to use my e-reader in the backyard sun.  What glasses should I get?  The answer is probably NOT bundled up into a single pair of multi-purpose, super glasses. There are two considerations in assessing which and how many different vision solutions you should have.  First is to... Read More
