Behind the Lens: Unveiling the Art and Science of Prescription Eyewear

Have you ever stopped to wonder how your glasses work? Or how they're made? Understanding the art and science behind prescription eyewear can help you appreciate your glasses even more.

​​A Look at the History

Prescription eyewear has been around for centuries. The first wearable glasses known to history appeared in Italy during the 13th century. Technological and design advances over the centuries have led us to the comfortable, stylish, and highly effective eyewear we know today.

The Science Behind the Lens

The magic of clear vision happens in the lens of your glasses. Prescription lenses correct vision because they allow the eye to focus light in the right spot on the retina — where vision is best. Depending on whether you're nearsighted or farsighted, your lens will be designed to correct your vision accordingly.

How Glasses Are Made

Making prescription glasses involves a series of precise steps:

  1. Your Prescription: It all starts with your prescription from your eye doctor, which specifies the amount of correction needed for each eye.
  2. Lens Creation: Based on your prescription, lenses are crafted with a precise curvature needed to correct your vision. The lens material can vary - it might be high-index plastic, polycarbonate, or regular plastic.
  3. Frame Fitting: The lenses are then carefully cut and shaped to fit into your chosen frame.

The Art of Eyewear Design

Eyewear design is a fascinating field where fashion meets function. Designers must create glasses that not only correct vision but also fit comfortably, suit different face shapes, and align with fashion trends.

When it comes to design, the sky's the limit. From the classic and sophisticated styles to the bold and avant-garde, there are frames for every face and personality.

Your Perfect Pair

Finding the right pair of glasses is about more than just clear vision — it's about finding a style that fits your personality and lifestyle. With so many designs and styles available, your perfect pair of glasses is out there waiting for you.

Understanding the art and science behind your glasses can help you appreciate them even more. So next time you put on your glasses, you'll know there's a world of history, science, and design right there on your nose!

Isn't it fascinating to peek behind the lens and see what goes into your everyday eyewear? Stick around for more articles that dive into the captivating world of prescription eyewear.

A Mama's Boy's Love for His Mother

Vicci™ Eyewear was inspired by a son’s love for his mother and his passion for fashion.

David Abramovici, the Founder of Vicci™ Eyewear, came from a family of artisans dedicated to craftsmanship since the 1920s.

David recalls that when his mother was around 65 years old, she would always ask him to stop by the local pharmacy to pick up some generic readers.

He would spend at least 20 minutes every time he went there, just standing in front of a rack full of tacky, ugly readers. It was difficult for him to choose a "nice" design that he thought would look good on his mother.

His mother enjoyed attending events and spending money on her dresses and accessories. Unfortunately, the readers are often underwhelming, and she was embarrassed to ever be seen wearing them. Like most women, she'd usually hide it in her lovely purse and would always look around before using them to read the menu or bill.

David wondered why there weren’t more choices for high-quality and fashionable custom readers for older women like his mother. Something she’d actually love to wear and be proud to be seen wearing.

And that’s when it hit him!
