Planet Eyewear: A Slideshow of Trends

Let’s talk about trends, baby. Let’s talk about you and me. All the good things all the bad things that you see. I think I messed up the words. Anyhow, over at DNA (Daily News and Analysis), a nice slideshow has been posted highlighting emerging eyewear trends in India. They are strikingly similar to our trends here in the old US of A.

“Dark shades such as grey and black are the more preferred ones in terms of the lens colour. Unlike earlier, colours such as light pink and blue are completely out and these days people prefer to go for frames that are made of plastic and that come with different layered and coloured effects. Red and white and red and black are pretty successful combinations. The tortoise shell effect is also extremely popular,” she adds.

My standing recommendation for the website with truly trendy, designer eyewear at reasonable prices isBest Buy Eyeglasses, where you can save 40% on Designer Sunglasses. For less expensive non-designer eyewear, check out some of the links on the right of this page.

  1. thank you very much for your tips. when I buy a pair, i will be sure to share the experience with

    and merry christmas !

  2. Hi Mark

    I’m glad you have found my site helpful. There is nothing like the feeling of getting a great pair or pairs of glasses for 80% less than what you expected to pay.

    Regarding photochromatic lenses (those that tint/untint depending on if you are indoors or out)–the technology is well established and has been around for over thirty years. It is a coating on a lens made from something called silver halide. While I haven’t tested a pair myself from any of the major online retailers (most offer this coating as an option), I haven’t heard anything negative about their individual implementations of the photochromatic (“transitions”) lens coating.

    I do know that photochromatic lenses will only achieve about a 60% tint when outdoors, while a typical pair of sunglasses will have an 80% tint. This shouldn’t be a big deal for driving and everyday use, but you may find the tint slightly insufficient on the brightest sunny days. On the other hand, if the day is somewhat cloudy, a 60% tint would work great while an 80% would be too dark.

    If you choose to buy a pair of specs online, please come back and share your experience!

  3. Thank you for all of your great posts, ideas and tips — I found your website on Google as I was researching a new pair of specs —

    I do have a question though, what do you think of the glasses that change from tinted to untinted when you come inside? Are there any recommended pairs of those?
