    FY EYE!
     
    One of life's great mysteries has finally been tackled by science: why does everyone look hotter in sunglasses?
     
    According to Vanessa Brown of Nottingham Trent University, there are three main factors at play here:
     
    1.Symmetry.  Sunglasses cover up any asymmetries around your eyes and cheekbones, instantly upping your "technical" hotness quotient! (Research has consistently shown that facial symmetry is a key player in facial attractiveness).
     
    2. Mystery. Eyes really ARE the window to the soul! Eye contact helps us make initial judgments about the people we see and meet -- their intelligence, confidence, and sincerity. Cover up your eyes and you become unreadable and mysterious, which research also shows ups a person's attractiveness.
     
    3. Glamour. Here's a little history: sunglasses first came on the scene in a big way in the 1940s, primarily for use in "cool and dangerous" activities, like extreme sports and aviation. In the 1950s, Hollywood stars began wearing  sunglasses to deflect the paparazzi and over-zealous fans. Hence the cultural link between sunglasses and glamour!
     
    If you're ready to make your hot self even hotter, come by 10/10 Optics and find your perfect pair of sunglasses! 
     
    P.S. Our regular frames also have been known to up our clients' hottness factor by up to a million percent... it's science, we swear! ;)
     

     

    Featured Frames Wednesday: Ronit Furst!

    Last updated 2 months ago

    It doesn't get more custom -- or cooler! -- than Ronit Furst Handpainted Eyewear.
     
    Ronit got into the eyewear fashion biz completely by accident.  After searching fruitlessly for her next fabulous pair of frames, she decided to take things into her own hands -- literally -- and painted a pair of her old frames in a tasty technicolor palette. The rave reviews her frames got from family, friends, and perfect strangers, inspired her to produce her own line of eyewear -- and now, fourteen years later, she's one of the most popular eyewear designers out there!
     
    Every single pair of Ronit Furst glasses is handpainted, and designed to bring the wearer's unique quirks and funky personality to the forefront. Ronit Furst frames are available in every color combo imaginable -- and 10/10 Optics has dozens of her designs in stock!
     
    If you're ready for your funnest and funkiest frames ever, come visit us! Just be warned -- Ronit Furst eyewear is addictive!

    A Brief History of Glasses
     
    When you visit us at 10/10 Optics to pick your newest frames from our dozens of spectacular collections, did you know that you're benefiting from almost 800 years of medical, engineering, and design breakthroughs? True story!
     
    The earliest glasses were invented in the late 13th century, and had lenses made of quartz. Frames were made of bone, metal or leather, and were shaped like two small magnifying glasses attached by an upside-down "V". To wear them, a person had to balance them by the inverse "V" on the bridge of their nose. Keeping glasses on the wearer's face was a challenge that took almost 350 years to solve -- it wasn't until the mid 1700s that a British optician invented glasses with the sidepieces we know and love today!
     
    Glasses started to become fashionable in the early 1900s, and by the 1930s, glasses-wearers had a huge selection of designs to choose from.
     
    Glasses fashion and technology has certainly come a long way since the days of bone and quartz. But if that's your style, no worries -- 10/10 Optics has something for everyone!
