The Evolution of Eyewear Fashion - Designer Sunglasses
Sunglasses were invented by Sam Foster, founder of Foster Grant Company in 1929. During that time, the sole purpose of those lenses was to protect the eyes from the sun's harmful rays. It wasn't fashionable, then; unlike today when everywhere you look there are "shades" in different colors and designs.
Many people wonder if the cost of their prescription glasses is covered by their insurance plan. The answer is that it varies tremendously from plan to plan. Before you pay out of your own pocket for prescription glasses, take a look at your plan to determine whether or not you have vision coverage.
Did you know that the color of sunglass lenses really does matter? These colors exist for a reason beyond just the aesthetic appeal of sunglasses. Though it does seem ironic that if a music or movie star chooses to don a pair of green shades for their style appeal, green shades start popping up all over middle America. Regardless, colors do have a purpose beyond the rainbow-like appeal. For example, gray sunglasses appeal to the average individual.
