The Eyes Have It

The eyes have it! What people notice most about you is your eyes–which is why you should always treat your eyeglasses as an essential style accessory.

Reinvent your look with stylish eyewear from Kennedy & Perkins. There's no better accessory to accent your look and style than beautifully designed eyewear. The latest trends range from slimmed-down tailored metal frames that are sleek and light on the face, to larger aviator-style frames. Many new styles are colorful, bold, and feature bright mixed materials, including metal and wood. Wooden eyewear–either a wood effect, or actual wooden frames–are a popular trend going into 2019. The natural earthy colors and eco-friendly materials complement any attire and complexion.

Keep in mind, the frame isn't the only factor. Color, size, and bridge fit all play a major role, which is why you should always experiment with the style of your eyeglasses.

Did you get a new cell phone for the holidays? Perhaps a new tablet was waiting under the tree? Or maybe you're sporting a trendy smart watch or fitness tracker? Digital devices are an ever-present part of our lives, and we're spending increasing amounts of time on them. While they're convenient and provide a world of information at our fingertips, they're also to blame for digital eye strain. One third of adults spend more than nine hours a day on smartphones, tablets, and digital devices. People are unaware of the potential dangers of blue light to their eyes. Staring at a phone or computer screen all day can affect vision and sleep. Protecting your eyes from computer eyestrain will impact eye health in the long run. That's why Kennedy & Perkins offers offer blue light blocking lenses. Also known as computer reading glasses, these lenses protect your vision and reduce eye strain during computer and digital device use. It's important to have these lenses individually customized by an optician as reading distance is different than computer distance.

Finally, eyeglass trends do change, but never as dramatically as sunglass fashion. Kennedy & Perkins features an extensive line of fashionable sunglasses in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials, and colors. Professional frame stylists help you choose the perfect fit, shape, and color for your own personalized look.

For more than 70 years, Kennedy & Perkins Guild Opticians has been a locally-owned and family-run optical business, with locations in Branford, Guilford, Old Saybrook, Hamden, and Orange. While most optical stores only stock a handful of choices, K&P knows everyone's eyes are unique and has an extensive selection of stylish frames and more than 20 different kinds of lenses available to provide the best optics for your individual eyes.

Whether you want to update your eyeglasses or completely transform your look, K&P has lenses made not just for your prescription, but for your eyes–and your eyes only! The eyes have Kennedy & Perkins!
