Top 4 Accessories For Your Eyeglasses

When it comes to glasses, reports that there are 4 billion adults around the globe wearing them to correct their vision. Eyeglasses may be preferred, as contacts need to be repurchased on a regular basis and eye corrective surgery is expensive. If you sport a pair of glasses, there are a few accessories you can buy that will add both function and style to your look. 

Fit-Over Sunglasses

According to the University of Utah, UV radiation can cause sunburn in your eyes. This type of injury is referred to as photokeratitis, and it can cause both pain and sensitivity to light. The best way to protect yourself is with a pair of sunglasses. Fit-over sunglasses are designed to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays and clip in place on top of your regular glasses. They come in all different colors and styles and you can use them in conjunction with your regular eyeglasses. 

Cords and Chains

Attaching a cord or chain to your eyeglass makes the use of your glasses more functional. There's no need to remove the glasses and set them on a counter every time you want to read something up close or apply more eye makeup. Simply allow the chain to hold the glasses around your neck until you are done. There's no need to purchase a boring, solid color cord or chain either, as this accessory comes in a variety of patterns. You can even get one that resembles a fancy necklace. 

Glasses Wax

One accessory you won't want to go without is a tube of glasses wax. This handy substance works to create friction between your nose and the bridge of your glasses so that they don't slide off. This is especially helpful if you have oily skin or you tend to sweat a good deal when it's hot outside. The wax is colorless, which means when you apply it to your glasses, no one will even know it's there and your eyeglasses will stay in place all day.   

Eyeglass Cases

If you own a pair of eyeglasses, then you need a case to store them when they aren't being used. Soft cases work well for keeping your glasses dust free during the night, however, you'll want a hard case for storing glasses that need to travel. No matter which type of case you select, you can find one with your favorite character, animal, or sports team on it. You may opt for a cheetah or zebra print or go with a tropical pattern. You can even purchase a plain colored case and decorate it yourself.
