Frame of the Month 2014: March


3608 Gucci glasses (6F4)Frame of the month for March sends us back to our favourite colour palettes for glasses. We simply could not resist the allure of havana coloured Gucci frames, so for March, we have chosen 3608 Gucci glasses, colour model 6F4.

We have chosen yet another lightweight plastic frame for the comfort feeling. It is considerably rarer for someone to be develop irritation to the plastic frames than metal frames. The 3608 Gucci frame is very flexible and smooth and will glide into place when you wear it. The lightweight feeling will ensure you forget you are wearing glasses, such is the comfortability and design of the frame.

The 3608 Gucci spectacle is a combination of havana and dark havana, separated by a mud-coloured interval consisting of the recognisable golden Gs of the Gucci logo and brand. The Gucci frame targets the female population and will impress on any occasion. The 3608 Gucci glasses is a timeless eyewear and will suit everyone from a young adult age and above.

If this designer eyewear does not interest you, perhaps you may find something more appealing from our Gucci glasses range? We also have an extensive range of designer eyewear consisting of several designer eyewear brands to browse from.

Frame of the Month 2014: February


8068 Luxx Ted Baker glasses (502 Olive)For our next frame of the month we have looked no further than Ted Baker designer glasses, more specifically the 8068 Luxx Ted Baker glasses (502 Olive colour model). Ted Baker have always been an adventurous glasses designer brand and never fail to provide fashionable eye wear accessories.

8068 Luxx Ted Baker glasses, 502 Olive model, is a combination of flat emerald green and opaque black colours with a dash of white and silver for artistic impressions. The 8068 Luxx Ted Baker frame is plastic, thick in shape and most importantly lightweight. The thick shape, especially along the arms of the glasses makes the glasses appear more as a fashion statement. As it can be seen more easily, it will be noticed and can compliment your choice of clothing more easily. The magnetic shade of green on the arms is also a very interesting and rare choice of colour for glasses.

The 8068 Luxx Ted Baker glasses is a smooth, lightweight frame. The plastic material the glasses are made of has been fine-tuned by many generations of frame-making research to allow a big frame feel so incredibly light and comforting when wearing. The frame-in-built nose-pads also relieve the nose from the pressure pads that sometimes form when wearing heavy spectacles for too long. The 8068 Luxx Ted Baker designer glasses are very impressionable and sophisticated and would look very suave of any wearer.

If this designer eyewear does not interest you, perhaps you may find something more appealing from our Ted Baker glasses range? We also have an extensive range of designer eyewear consisting of several designer eyewear brands to browse from.

Frame Of The Month 2013: April



We decided to go with the burgundy red coloured 936 Fendi designer glasses for our 4th Frame of the Month of the year in 2013. Fendi have always manufactured top of the range designer glasses for the ladies. This 936 Fendi (604 colour code) burgundy frame ticks all the positive criteria, persuading us to select this as our frame of the month.

The 936 Fendi glasses is a full rim plastic frame. The colour scheme is comparised of a delicate blend of dark and light red with a flush of transparency to give the designer frame an urban look and seductive charm. The classic Fendi trademark logo, the two Fs where the second one is inverted and flipped horizontally, can be seen lining the arms of the Fendi designer glasses forming an articulate stylish pattern. The Fendi specs is very smooth both in design and touch, and most importantly, feels very light for a comfortable fit on the nose and face.

Frame Of The Month 2013: March


Our Frame of the Month for March goes to BOSS 0197 Hugo Boss designer glasses. Hugo Boss are a reliable brand when it comes to producing classy goods and the BOSS 0197 Hugo Boss spectacle does not disappoint. This semi-rimless (supra) frame is designed to look sleek, sophisticated and casual at the same time. It is not an over-the-top frame where the designers have put too much effort into making the glasses unique, but at the same time it is not plain enough to look abysmal or boring.

The head of the frame holding the lenses is made of specialised plastic that is strong, durable and bendable. This helps give the 0197 BOSS eyewear some flexibility on the face. Attached to the lenses are the shiny black, olive coloured arms (colour code J8U). The arms on this Hugo Boss frame are very lightweight reducing unnecessary pressure around the nose and ears. The smooth curved arc arms around the ear position keep this frame stable and fixated on the head, even under strong and sudden head movement.

Hugo Boss 0197 spectacles are very suave indeed and it wasn't a difficult decision to pick this designer frame for our Frame of the Month in March. These frames are suitable for all sorts of occasions and events, including black tie dinners.

Frame Of The Month 2013: February


Our February Frame of the Month goes to 3133 Gucci (colour code: MH2 DKVIO BLU). This gorgeous frame is designed for the female population. Our panel of experts decided to opt for a different type of coloured frame this month. Blacks, whites and havanas are by far some of the most popular frame colours people usually choose for their designer frames. We decided to look past these obvious colour palettes and seek a frame that could optimise character and appearance.

The 3133 Gucci MH2 DKVIO is a plastic, lightweight frame that fits comfortably on the face and ears. A built in nose pad allows the designer glasses to gently fit on the nose without the nose pads applying much or any pressure. A 2 tone gradient on the front gives a sophisticated and stylish feel to the glasses. The arms feature the beautiful insignia of the Gucci brand logo enclosed within a silver patterned border and background. For ladies who are not afraid to try a different coloured frame from the norm, these blue Gucci designer glasses will not disappoint.

Frame Of The Month 2013: January


For our first "Frame of the Month" of 2013, we have chosen Oakley Hearsay. This designer frame simply grabbed our attention because of the number of colours splashed across the frame. Usually when so many colours are used, this takes away from the aesthetics of the frame as it becomes too chaotic. However with the Oakley Hearsay Ophthalmic frame, the colours used and the pattern of the arm design is just perfect. This eyewear features a two-layer design; a smooth purple exterior and a randomised mix of red, cream and white interior. The trademark "O" from Oakley can clearly be seen on the side of the arm next to a reddened hinge.

The Oakley glasses are made of very high quality plastic to ensure the arms do not snap under moderate pressure and can bend to an extent to provide maximum comfort on the wearer. The Oakley frame gives a very smooth appearance and brings out a very seductive side from the wearer. Hearsay Oakleys are suitable for ladies and comes in the size 51mm x 15mm. For an Oakley frame that's under £100*, it's a no brainer why we would consider this our Frame of the Month! Oakley are one of the biggest and most popular international designer eyewear brands in the world.

This week we have requested their help on the sunglasses they believe will be most popular in the Summer of 2012. With plenty of sports action over this Summer and plenty of sun predicted, it would be great to be ahead of the game and order these beauties earlier in the year before the Summer rush takes over. The designer sunglasses selectively chosen were as follows.

The 3070/S Gucci sunglasses are a brown pair of sunglasses with a striking entwined G logo of Gucci on the arms.

The 12-958 Ice Pick Polarised Oakley sunglasses is a semi-rimmed frame more suitable for men. A comfortable fit and generic frame colour means this frame can't go wrong. Oakley are one of the biggest designer sunglasses brands around, this Ice Pick will look fantastic out in Summer. The Akoni Maui Jim Classic sunglasses have a big lens surface area meaning maximum protection for the eyes during Summer against the dangerous UV rays from the sun. Maui Jim are always recommended for Summer and especially any water-related activities such as the pool.

The CHAMPION SML Carrera sunglasses in white are a great choice for people who are happy to move away from the popular black-coloured frame sunglasses. Another female favourite is the 6029B Bvlgari sunglasses. This frame has a beautiful and intricate design on it's arm and has a lovely gradient lens colour change for added style. This Bvlgari frame is a gem for fashion and looks. Last of all, our experts have chosen from the Ray-Ban brand.

Maui Jim sunglasses


With so many designer sunglasses brands in the world, Maui Jim has to be one of the biggest. Maui Jim is an American designer brand well known for their polarised lens sunglasses. Their style is heavily influenced by an oceanic and sports theme. Maui Jim sunglasses are made for general wear, sports activities or water-related activities such as fishing. Their design ranges from full wrapped plastic frames with modified shapes for suiting people’s faces to sporty sunglasses of lightweight titanium allowing comfortable wear for all occasions.

Marketing of Maui Jim is mainly spread through word of mouth. By concentrating their resources on technology, design, research and production they manufacture quality sunglasses that are popular all over the world. Many of the designs are inspired by local scenery on picturesque beaches, seas and reefs. Rather than focus on advertising their own products, Maui Jim let the quality and design of their sunglasses speak volumes instead. In 1999, Forbes magazine listed Maui Jim sunglasses as one of 100 Things Worth Every Penny.

The below is a sample of the collection of some iconic and best sellers of Maui Jim sunglasses:

Back in Trend 2011: Bright coloured designer sunglasses

The summer season is fast approaching and this year it has been predicted to be the hottest summer yet! Early preparation will help you avoid suffering in the searing heat as the sun will be roaring down whichever destination you choose.

Sun cream lotion, check. Suitable clothing, check. Sunglasses, nope?

If you haven’t gotten your hands on a pair of sunglasses or you’re unsure what pair to buy then let eyebuddy help you decide!

UV Protection

The first and most important thing to be aware of is to ensure your sunglasses offer 100% UV protection. This is to protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays the sun emits. You don’t want sunglasses that block 33% or 80% of the harmful UV rays. You want to go for maximum safety, therefore 100% UV protection is highly recommended and at eyebuddy, all our sunglasses are 100% UV protection guaranteed.

Colour & Trend


In previous years, dark colours were setting the trend for designer sunglasses such as the traditional blacks, browns and gun metals. In 2011, however, fashion experts have predicted a return of bright colours for clothes, designer shoes and designer sunglasses. With such a beautiful summer to come, people want to embrace the warmness by going simple but original in style and colour.

So far this year, people have been targeting warmer colours such as taupe, pink, mauve and lavender. An alternative to these fair colours would be white framed designer sunglasses which match well with the current trending fair coloured dresses for summer.

Brand name

Some of the biggest designer brand names in the sunglasses industry are Ray-Ban, Oakley, Maui Jim and Dior. They’re always coming up with new innovative designs to match the current trending fashion styles and colours. There are plenty of other well known sunglasses brands such as Nike, Miu Miu, D&G, Jimmy Choo, Bvlgari, Police, etc … but one of the brands that have grown considerably and been very successful in 2011 in the UK is Tom Ford. The brand’s concept is perfectly suited to the Anglo-American look and the popularity associated with Tom Ford designer sunglasses is rising at an incredible rate. They have been described as clean, elegant, chic and original.

Celebrities

The media fascination with celebrities has turned them all into potential fashion idols. A lot of people are influenced by what certain celebrities wear and want to model themselves with similar fashion styles. In the recent James Bond films, Daniel Craig has been seen wearing Tom Ford and Persol designer brand sunglasses which led to an influx of orders for identical models. Ray-Ban Wayfarers have always been a big favourite among celebrities. To name a few, those spotted wearing them include actress Jessica Alba, singer Katy Perry (seen above), singer Rihanna (seen above) and British singer Tinie Tempah. Ray-Ban Wayfarer models can be searched on eyebuddy by searching for "Wayfarer" in our search bar at the top.

What sunglasses should I buy?

What sunglasses should I buy?

People often look for different qualities in sunglasses such as purpose, comfort, optical quality, UV protection, weight, warranty, price and brand.

Define 'purpose'.

For example, outdoor sportsmen often wear nylon frame sunglasses (flexible frames that don’t snap easily when pressure is applied). There are plenty of sunglasses in various shapes, sizes and colours if you are looking for fashion. If you want sunglasses for sunbathing or hiding your identity, you should go for wide frame sunglasses.

Can you elaborate on comfort?

Think of your clothes. If they are too large and baggy or too small and short, you’ll end up fidgeting with it. It’s the same story with sunglasses. You want a pair that fit well on your head. The nose bridge is also important as they help relieve pressure on your nose and cheeks. The height of the nose bridge is dependent on the size of your nose. Bigger noses need lower bridges, smaller noses need high bridges.

What do you mean by optical quality?

The clarity of vision, contrast and colour distortion of sunglasses. There are many coloured lenses with differing intensities. Grey and green lenses are neutral lenses with no colour distortion. Turquoise lenses increase contrast enhancement without colour distortion. Brown, yellow and orange lenses increase contrast enhancement but have some colour distortion. Blue and purple lenses are for fashion purposes. As for colour intensities, the darker the lens, the less light will pass through. Last of all, glass lenses offer better visual clarity compared with plastic.

What should I know about UV protection?

Not all sunglasses offer the same amount of UV protection. The European Union require sunglasses to have 95% UV protection (this means reflect or block 95% of the harmful UV rays emitted from the sun). Most opticians would recommend 99-100% (also known as UV400). There is no relation between the price of sunglasses and the amount of UV protection. The best sunglasses for UV protection are wide frame sunglasses with lenses that cover the whole of the eye area. A lot of designer brands are UV400 and have these large round frames for sale.

How about the weight of sunglasses?

The weight of the sunglasses depends on the frame and lens. Frames made of metal are heavier than plastic or nylon but there are lightweight titanium metal frames. For lenses, glass lenses are heavier than plastic. Heavy sunglasses will often leave indentation marks on the face upon removal.

What’s the difference between glass and plastic lenses?

The only advantage glass lenses have over plastic lenses is the better clarity of vision. Plastic lenses are lighter than glass, will not smash apart as easily and can be made much thinner.

Anything else you think I should know?

These are probably useless facts to you and me, but it makes an interesting read. Most people admit the look of the sunglasses is the biggest factor when deciding which one to buy. Some people wear sunglasses indoors not because they want the attention but rather, they just don’t want to make eye contact during a conversation. The biggest problem associated with sunglasses is misplacing them and forgetting where they’ve been laid. This is especially common on holiday, so take care when you have a good pair of designer sunglasses. You don't want to lose them!

FIVE reasons why STUDENTS should wear GLASSES and SUNGLASSES


  • Changing appearance

    You don’t need bad vision to wear glasses. Whoever said you did? Glasses are a fashion tool. You want to look sexy, sophisticated, geeky, cute, cool or regular plain; glasses are the answer! Putting makeup on can only do so much, glasses can help enhance the look you want. Students are always out and about, we all want to look good in front of others right? Who doesn’t?! If you’re someone who doesn’t usually wear glasses, try them out. Instant attention success!


  • Sleeping in class

    Student life, most people have been there. Socialising, partying, drinking, lectures and then there’s … well … sleeping. After a heavy night of partying, you’ve somehow managed to drag yourself to an early morning lecture. Just like everyone else you’re half awake, about to drift off but afraid of being caught and thrown out by the lecturer. Here’s the solution, get yourself a pair of wide frame sunglasses! Now you can relax and doze off looking perfectly cool and in the zone!


  • Heavy partying

    After a long and, perhaps in some cases uninspiring day at uni, you need to chill and let loose. You head off to a night club and after a few hours of drinking, your inhibitions have lowered. You wake up the next day full of regret but fear not! As always, we offer you some awesome solutions! First of all, ditch those beer goggles of yours. Everyone knows they’re rubbish for your eyesight! Get real specs! You’ll see a lot better and hopefully you won’t make the same mistake next time. Don’t let them get lucky again. You deserve better!


  • Holiday sunbathing

    It’s been known that students somehow manage to go on holidays together despite the cost. When students do go, it’s may be to Ibiza or Ayia Napa because of the sun, partying, alcohol and music (perhaps students learn this genetically). When you’re not sleeping or partying, you’re probably on the beach sunbathing. Make sure you’re wearing sunglasses. Your eyes are important so look after them! The effects of UV are very strong and the UV protection feature of quality sunglasses is often over-looked.


  • Most obvious

    This bullet point is probably the most blindingly obvious. Apologies for the awful gag. If you’ve been reading this blog with your face almost kissing the screen, chances are you need to wear spectacles. If that is the case, please see your local optician as soon as possible for an eye-test.


On a final note eyebuddy would like to state they are not liable for; your inability to attain instant attention success when wearing glasses; you still ending up being thrown out of the lecture because your sunglasses illusion didn’t fool the lecturer; you getting beer goggles again even after you got some new glasses; any eye-related problems you got from holiday because your sunglasses do not provide UV protection, get a pair of designer sunglasses instead or consult your opticians for their advice before going; stress to your eyes because you were reading this blog too close to the screen. Get yourself to an optician right this instant!

Geek Chic never grows old



No idea what geek chic is? No worries, I’ll slowly break it to you since it really is that big. It’s pronounced “geek sheek”. It’s been rumoured to turn back time on your appearance. Is it being hailed as the next miracle cure for aging? Not quite, but geek chic is on a completely different level in terms of popularity. Many celebrities and famous people have geek chic and love it. To describe it in a few words I’d say it’s sleek, eye-catching, sophisticated and keeps getting bigger and wider. No, I didn’t describe an iPad. Let me welcome you to the world of fashion, a world where appearance matters. Geek chic fashion is back on trend.

Geek chic fashion is a stereotype of what “geeks” wear, such as thick black rimmed glasses, T-shirts with hidden geek in-jokes, childishly cute accessories, etc. For the fashion world, geek chic glamour is gradually changing. It’s no longer about the geek chic clothes or accessories you wear, it’s about the glasses. The geek chic glasses provide a retro yet simplistic look which beautifully accentuates the curves on your face.

The increasing number of celebrities and well known people seen embracing geek chic glasses and sunglasses have pushed it right back on trend. Fashion icons such as David Beckham, Myleene Klass, Johnny Depp, Gok Wan and Jay-Z are big fans of the geek chic look.
