These are the indispensable accessory of an architect. They can be worn as a miniature piece of architecture and are a visible manifestation of your inner self. They are the symbol of futuristic ideas. The glasses frames are unique to the wearer. Therefore, no two sets are identical.
Many reasons architects wear glasses include to see, to protect the eyes, and for aesthetic purposes.
Many people who work with charts, patterns, or drawings need glasses to protect these items from their eyes. This is particularly true for engineers, scientists, mathematicians, as well as architects. Who is involved in projects that require precise drawing skills? When working with materials, wearing glasses can protect your eyesight from damage caused by heat, dust, fumes, and heavy lifting.
Professionals who are looking through a microscope or telescope will often wear glasses to better see the details. This holds for reading maps and other detailed images.
You will see that many famous artists created paintings and sculptures with men wearing glasses. The reason is that the artists needed to be able to see what they were doing. Without shadows, paintings look lifeless and dull.
Eyewear Architects – Selecting the Perfect Frames
It can be difficult and sometimes overwhelming to find the right pair of glasses. There are so many options, so many factors, and so many details that can affect the overall appearance and performance. The perfect specs can make a big difference in your life. The eyewear designers are here to help you. The architect glasses will help you choose the perfect pair by recommending a selection that is tailored to your needs. This is a sneak peek into how we select the perfect frames.
We consider frame fit and shape as major factors. First, let me dispel some myths about shape. Most people have heard that certain lenses (aviator, round, cat-eye) are compatible with certain facial shapes. Certain frame shapes are not compatible with certain face shapes, such as oval, narrow, or heart-shaped. Although a particular shape might not suit every face, we don’t believe that all frames should be avoided. We want the frames to fit correctly, to be comfortable, and be able to accommodate your prescription. How can we tell if a particular frame will fit your prescription? This curve is everything.
There are other factors to consider when choosing the perfect frames
Your prescription strength can affect the shape and curves of lenses. The lens curve will be more dramatic the higher the prescription power (plus or minus). This information is used by eyewear architects to determine the best frames that will complement the Rx both technically and aesthetically. For a prescription with a higher power, smaller, more symmetrical lenses might work well, while a larger, more expressive cat eye would work great for a prescription with lower power.
Once we have determined the right size and shape of your lenses, we can find the perfect frame for you. Each frame is made up of several measurements from the bridge to the temple. Eyewear designers have come to know these measurements so well that they are almost second nature. These measurements are used to create frames that feel and look like they were made just for you.
