Eyewear by the Numbers

On average, Americans spend $134 a month on apparel; that adds up to about $1,600 every year.* Often, our closets are full of clothing, shoes and other accessories, yet on average we only wear 20% of what we own.** Why do we spend so much money on items we may only wear once or twice a year?

When you think about it, many of us only spend $200-300 on a single pair of glasses, which is actually something that we wear daily for two years or longer! So why not make some fashion investments where it really counts – on your face. It’s time to think about your glasses and sunglasses as an accessory that helps represent your fashion, status, image and personality.

Do you like to coordinate your outfits by color? Look through our expansive collection of brands, styles, colors, and materials. Make a unique statement with handcrafted leather frames or a vibrant pop of color.

Do you match your eyeglasses with the seasons? Consider investing in a pair that matches your winter wardrobe as well as an upbeat pair for summer outfits.

Do you participate in sports, performances or other activities? It’s important to have eyewear that properly protects your vision and matches your pastimes.

Do you spend a lot of time outdoors? It’s vital to protect your eyesight while out in the sun. Make sure you have sunglasses that pair with the activities your enjoy.

These are only a few considerations to evaluate when investing in your vision wear. Stop by Eye & Eye Optics to shop our carefully curated selection, or show us what you’re looking for and let us help track it down.

Take time to invest in your eyewear. Your personal fashion and your vision health will thank you!
