Americans Reveal What Turns Them On and Off About Eyeglasses
Essilor of America, the makers of Crizal® Alizé(tm), a new anti-reflective eyeglass lens with unsurpassed cleanability and durability, recently asked more than 3,000 men and women about their eyeglass perceptions. Covering everything from sexy, spectacle-sporting celebrities to eyeglass fashion, the survey reveals America’s stand on specs.
Britney Spears tops the charts again, but this time it’s for being rated the sexiest eyeglass-wearing celebrity among men (44 percent). For women, all eyes were on Richard Gere, who topped their list at 35 percent.
Sounds like we glasses wearers are in the clear, as we are perceived to be smart and sophisticated by a fair number of folks surveyed. I’m glad those people haven’t met me! Just kidding, I’m ultra-smart and ultra-sophisticated, thanks to my glasses.
Those are designer frames, running about $160 (Avada) or $225 (Prada) after you add lenses. Though expensive, this is well off the $500+ you would pay retail. If you are looking for something a little more reasonable, check out the Prague frame at 39dollarglasses.com. It costs, well 39 bucks, including prescription lenses, and is shown here:
Well, that’s all from me on this Funday-Sunday. Have a great working week, everyone!
