If you are a more mature eyeglass wearer, you owe it to yourself to find flattering glasses that make you look as young as you feel, while solving some of the vision problems that tend to come with aging. With a variety of frame styles, lens shapes, and lens treatments, you can enhance your appearance and see better. Your eye doctor can make recommendations about the best lenses and lens treatments for your eyes, but you and the optician can find what looks great.
Industry professionals notice two trends that older buyers often follow. First, they regard their eyeglass purchase as a major one, which means that they often settle for one expensive pair, rather than for multiple pairs like younger buyers do. Rather than buying three pair of less expensive glasses in fashion colors to match their clothes, which they often find at a great price online, older viewers have a different mindset. This often prevents them from experimenting with colors and styles that they might like. This can be a mistake, as it relegates eyeglasses to really being functional rather than the fun fashion statement they can be.
The second thing that dominates older buyers, particularly women, is a fascination with retro styles, which often makes for oversized glasses and shapes such as cat’s eyes that were popular in past decades. As a buyer from Glasses Direct notes "When we segment our customers by age, we find the younger ones like more streamlined frames and older ones have a stronger interest in decoration." Glasses can make a statement and you can be known by your huge round frames, but there are many ways to express your individuality in a more modern way.
