There was a time when wearing glasses was considered nerdy or for people who just didn’t care how they looked. Well, that time has definitely changed. Whether you’re in prescription eye glasses or just looking to update your style with a pair of non-prescription frames, being a member of the four-eyed club is no longer something to be ashamed of.
And, in case you haven’t noticed, the number of people wearing glasses these days continues to grow. According to the Vision Council of America, approximately 75% of adults use some sort of vision correction. About 64% of them wear eyeglasses, and about 11% wear contact lenses, either exclusively, or with glasses. Over half of all women and about 42% of men wear glasses.
Instead of your glasses being an afterthought, consider them an easy accessory to instantly update your style. These days, there are so many eyewear options that you’re guaranteed to find something that fits your style. And, with glasses being so affordable these days, there’s no reason why you can’t own more than one pair of glasses, depending on your outfit or your mood that day.
