Why you need more than one pair of frames!

Eyewear wardrobes are a very important part of our business and we are constantly educating our customers on how multiple pairs can make life better and easier. At Eclectic Eye, we strongly believe in the power of social media and online out reach. We have a blog that any employee can contribute to and we give them freedom to be creative!! I wanted to share Gabrielle’s most recent post with everyone because I fell like it really embodies what we do at Eclectic Eye. Please also check out our blog @ https://eyelovememphis.wordpress.com/

Why would one person need so many pairs of glasses? I mean, you can only wear one pair at a time, right?

The analogy I like to give is, "you don't just wear one pair of shoes, do you?" Some may say yes, but I bet the other 99% of people would say "no." Well, I think the same logic should apply to your eyewear, and here's why.

Multiple uses

I have a pair of progressive lenses ("multi-focal" lenses that provide a seamless progression of many lens powers for all viewing distances) in a couple of frames. Why?

Because there are days where I'm doing work on my computer and around the store, as well as reading a lot (I'm studying for my ABO test). My progressive lenses come in handy during those days because they help my eyes focus when my eyes are tired or unable to focus.

My other glasses have single-vision lenses for the days that just require me to see properly. For you, this may translate into owning a computer pair and a distance pair, or a pair for distance and another one for reading.

Either way, don't forget an anti-reflective coating!


Everyone, even your baby, needs a pair of sunglasses! Sunglasses are not only essential to your eye health, but they are also the perfect thing to cut the glare and sun exposure during a golf game, day at the lake or on a road trip. Don’t forget to make sure the lenses are polarized!

Because girls (and guys) just wanna have fun!

Whether it’s a fun shape, wild color or a combination of both, you NEED a fun pair of frames. You need something that will grab the attention of others. Own frames that will: A.) Make a person stop and ask you where you got your glasses, B.) Make your teenager think you're cool again, and C.) Make you want to dance.

When I'm not feeling so spunky, I put on my funkiest pair of glasses and immediately hear Bruno Mars "Uptown Funk!"

The Utility Player

Let's talk versatility. You need that frame that goes with anything, so try a translucent acetate frame, like this one from SALT. Optics.

The Classic Black or Brown/Tortoise Frame

Because you just do!

As much as we would like to think there is one pair out there that could do all of these things in one...lets be honest - that's just no fun. Stop by Eclectic Eye and get some new additions to your eyewear wardrobe!
