Our eyes are the second most complex organ in our body after the brain, so it’s very important to look after them. As we age through life we become more aware of our eyes aging too. Many of us are prescribed reading spectacles after a certain age as the muscles and the lens in our eyes stiffens and doesn’t respond as well as they once did.
Our eyes are one of the body’s most remarkable and important parts. Not only do they give us one of our five senses – sight – our eyes are one of the few parts of our body that can’t be replaced. So it’s really important to look after them as we only have one pair to last a lifetime.
We’ve got a really fantastic offer on at the moment. When you buy one pair of spectacles we’ll give you 30%* off a second pair!
Although the weather is warming up, you should still put your coat on. On your lenses that is. You see, lens coatings and treatments play a very important role in the overall experience of wearing eyewear. Whether it’s optical, sunglasses, sports or safety eyewear, lens coatings can enhance the performance, durability and appearance of your eyewear.
The generic term for this type of coating is referred to as anti-reflection coating. Technology is moving swiftly and evolving all the time and there are many different types of anti-reflection coatings on the market, all giving a different bias depending on your lifestyle.
Here at Respectacle Company we love supporting other local small businesses. So with the help of Bellyflop TV and spectacle lens supplier SEIKO UK, we have created a video to showcase some of the fabulous independent businesses in Market Harborough, the beautiful market town we call home.
With the summer just around the corner and family holidays fast approaching, we’re all squeezing into our summer shorts or splashing out on a new summer dress. Some of you may even be tempted to invest in a new pair of sunglasses for the summer months. But not all sunglasses are the same. So it is worth investing in a good pair of sunglasses, not only to look great but also to protect your sight at the same time.
We all know the importance of a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Some days it feels like we’re being overloaded with information about how to stay healthy. Whether it’s exercising our heart and lungs, toning up our muscles, reducing sugar intake, eating low fat foods, reducing carbs and increasing our water intake – the list is endless!
And yet in comparison, there is very little information about keeping your eyes healthy. So we thought it was a good idea to make eye health the subject of our latest blog.
As we’re sure you’ve all been reading since the new year, 2018 seems to be all about clean living, detoxing, looking after ourselves and leading a healthy lifestyle. So it shouldn’t be a big surprise to hear that 2018 eyewear trends are leaning more towards feeling good – and not just looking great.
We’ve packed away the last of the Christmas decorations, drank the last of the fizz from new year, and made – and broken – all of our resolutions. To offset the January Blues, we’re counting down the days until Spring arrives, bringing with it lighter nights, some much needed warmer weather (hopefully!) whilst planning our summer holiday getaway.
Speaking of getaways, we know a lot of you are heading off to the slopes soon, for some clean fresh air, beautiful scenery and lots of fresh powder snow. Although looking at some of the conditions throughout Europe at the moment, it may not be quite the holiday you were expecting!
A lot of our friends and customers are keen skiers, and here at Respectacle Company we get asked a lot of questions about the best eyewear protection for when you hit the slopes. With weather conditions changing continuously, it’s important to have the best protection possible, both to protect your eyes and improve your skiing.
A long time before the conception of Respectacle Company we had many conversations at home about how we would love to have our own Optical Store. The conversations were long and idealistic often starting with the word ‘if’ and discussions followed the format about how the store would look, where it would be situated, what sort of image we wanted to portray and most importantly what brands we would stock.
