With such a wide range of glasses available, it can be hard to choose which ones to go for. We spoke to Ringwood Branch Manager, Debbie Gregory, to find out what her favourite brand is and why, to get some inspiration.
Although Debbie has several favourite brands, her ultimate favourite is Silhouette, so much so, she wears them herself!
So, what makes Silhouette Debbie’s ‘go to’ pair of glasses?
Lightweight and comfortable
“Silhouette is definitely my 'go to' pair, the reason for that is equally split between design, lightness and comfort. Once you have worn a Silhouette frame, it kind of spoils you for anything else.”
In fact, they are so lightweight that Silhouette is branded as the world’s lightest eyewear.
Fashionable, bespoke frames
“I wear a full rim. These have leapt forward in terms of fashion recently, but the main style Silhouette is known for is rimless. The beauty of these is that they are completely bespoke. The customer can have any combination of frame, style and colour, with any shape lens. The size of the lens is also customisable to suit the patient's needs.”
“In addition to all of this, is the fact that Silhouette now make lenses for their frames. These have the perfect base curve for the frames and the lenses, therefore follow the natural curve of the face, unlike other makes of lens that would be flatter and may distort the shape of the frame and final fit. In addition to the enhanced cosmetic appearance, the optical quality of the lens and peripheral vision is also much improved.”
Silhouette make lenses for single vision, varifocal and occupational prescriptions.
