Top Designer Frame Trends

Soft Pastels

Delicate pastel shades are all the rage this winter, from opaque to translucent and everything in between. Pastels have a calming effect and add a touch of spring to a winter palette.

Vintage Metal

Retro styles have been revived with vintage metal frames. These intricate frames have beautiful details along the rims for a distinctive look. Some vintage metal frames feature pops of color and pearls or stones.

Classic Round

Round frames are a timeless accessory that suit almost every face shape, but especially those with square, triangular and heart-shaped faces.

Thin metal round frames evoke a 20’s intellectual look, while circular frames in strong colors are a definite fashion statement.

Bold Tones

Do you want to draw attention when you walk into a room? A bold-colored pair of glasses will do the trick. Don’t be shy. Go bold and bright for a pair of prescription glasses or sunglasses this winter.

Oversized Square

Perfect for prescription glasses or sunnies, oversized square frames can suit any style, from classy and elegant to cute and whimsical. Rock your pair of boxy silhouettes with a cozy scarf or oversized sweater.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can you keep your glasses from fogging in the winter?

  • Anti-fog sprays and wipes can help keep your glasses clean and clear during the winter months. You can also try positioning your glasses lower down on your nose to improve the airflow between your skin and the lenses. Ask your eye doctor about possibly adding a permanent anti-fog coating on your glasses. If your glasses keep fogging, consider switching to contacts for the winter.

Why should you wear sunglasses in the winter?

  • Sunglasses are important to wear all year round, whether it’s bright and sunny or overcast. The sun’s harmful UV rays can increase your risk of developing eye diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration. They penetrate through clouds, so be sure to sport your sunglasses even on gloomy winter days. Sunglasses can also shield your eyes from cold winds that cause dryness and discomfort.

Hello friends, I have retired!

I had 37 years of good fun in Georgetown and loved the gift of meeting so many warm and friendly people! I am very sorry that I didn’t have the time to chat with everyone about my exact plans, and felt guilty over that at times. It was not an easy task. If anyone wants, or needs to contact me, please send an email to my office and I will reply.

I am 66 years old and still feel like I am in good health. My wife died of cancer in 2021 but I have good friends and family and a fun life. I recently moved back to Toronto which is where I grew up as a teenager. I have an active outdoor life and have many ski trips and travel plans in front of me. Lots of interests and activities to explore with an overriding sense that I am a lucky guy. I am also a grandfather now.

I have always tried to employ staff and optometrists who have a heart. I think that is where the office is at today and I hope it continues. Everyone knows their work, and the heart matters.
