Back-to-School Eyewear Trends

Starting a new school year gives you the opportunity to reinvent and restyle yourself. We think the best place to start is a sweet pair of frames, which is why we have the hippest new styles that your friends are going to go wild over. We are seeing a demand for the three most classic styles of glasses: transparent, bold black, and tortoiseshell frames.

Did you know that basic vision screenings like the ones you get at school only identify 5% of vision problems in children? That’s why it’s so important to book an eye exam at one of our 55+ locations.

To get ready for a brand-new school year, schedule an eye exam, read this amazing blog, and get ready to pick out the best back-to-school frames.

Totally Transparent

Make a statement with these transparent frames from Oliver Peoples. The company bases all of their designs on 1940-1950s fashion, which means they never go out of style. Did we mention that they match anything in your wardrobe? It’s a win-win.

Classic Black

Guys, geek is chic. Black rectangular frames are where it’s at. You don’t have to commit to the classic shape to rock this look either. Try a cat-eye or oval frame. No matter what you choose, rock your look.

We love OGI frames for kids because they are practically kid-proof! Stop in to see what we mean.

Sleek Tortoiseshell

We suggest going wild on the color, because color is cool.

Ever wonder why they call them tortoiseshell? They were designed with the speckled look of turtles in mind. Pretty cool, right? These frames come in a wide variety of colors like brown and black speckle or a fun purple and pink speckle combination.

Lilly Pulitzer is known for fun, bright designs, so we love this take on a tortoiseshell. Want a more neutral look? We have that, too!

We can’t wait for you and your family to stop in and find the perfect back-to-school look. Set up your appointment and get ready to crush the new school year!

Finding the Perfect Pair

Just because glasses may be a necessity, or something you depend on, doesn’t mean they can’t also be seen as a fun accessory. With endless style options available, there is no doubt that every person can find a pair of glasses that perfectly suits them.

Take Care

After you’ve fallen in love with your glasses, you’ll want to keep them safe and clean. It doesn’t matter if you’re a long-time glasses wearer, or just picked up your first pair yesterday, bad habits surrounding your glasses care can develop quickly.

When taking care of your glasses, don’t forget to:

  • Use both hands when putting them on or taking them off, as this will keep frames from becoming misaligned.
  • Keep them on your nose, not on top of your head.
  • Store them in a safe place at night. Whether it is on a level night stand, or in a case, make sure the arms are gently folded in and they are resting on the arms, never the lenses.
  • Clean your lenses regularly.

Keeping your lenses clean is important when it comes to ensuring you are getting the clearest view possible. We carry an effective lens cleaning kit at all of our locations. The Rx Optical PHD-50 Lens Cleaning Kit, which is included with our Worry-Free Warranty, contains a 6-ounce cleaner spray bottle, 30 pre-moistened lens cloths, and a microfiber cloth. Our cleaning solution is safe for all lenses and coatings, and was developed to work fast. The kit is available for $12.95 when purchased separately from our Worry-Free Warranty.

Speaking of our Worry-Free Warranty, it is always better to be safe than sorry. We offer a comprehensive 25-month warranty that will help ease your mind and keep your glasses safe. Our warranty covers scratched, broken, or lost eyeglasses.

Because we want you to love your glasses each and every day, our team at Rx Optical is dedicated to helping you find your perfect match! Not loving your current glasses or think you might need a change? Stop by and see us soon!
