Some of you may remember wearing glass prescription lenses years ago. In fact at one time you could only buy glass lenses. Nothing else was available! Several decades ago different forms of plastic lenses became available and with advances in technology such as Cr-39, Polycarbonate, and high index lenses like 1.60, 1.67, 1.70 and 1.74 are now the norm. In fact we have the opposite problem, prescription glass lenses are much harder to find. Some offices do not even use them! These new advances have allowed an amazing amount of excellent solutions for patients. Thinner, flatter, lighter and impact resistance allow for a huge array of solutions for frames and eyewear needs. The issue tho is these lenses in some ways are much better and in others not as good as glass. Glass Lens offer the absolute best optics of any material. Ray-Ban, Persol, and many premium sunglass companies still use glass lenses because it offers the clearest vision possible with amazing scratch resistance. The downside is they are a bit heavier and can break or crack if dropped.

Oliver Peoples 30th Anniversary! Amazing! This company helped launch the independent movement for luxury eyewear. No labels and excellent craftsmanship. Oliver Peoples is still great after all these years. Oliver Peoples has launched a release of some original designs for its anniversary. Great Images and even better eyewear.

The 30th Anniversary campaign’s narrative follows four friends as they discover an abandoned diner on the back roads of the Mojave Desert. Fashion icon Amber Valetta leads an all-star cast of models who represent both the notable legacy of Oliver Peoples and the brand’s aspiring future; including 90’s male model de jour, Alex Lundqvist, current editorial staple, Jac, and newcomer Levi Dylan — son of Jakob Dylan and grandson to Bob Dylan. Valetta is no stranger to Lindbergh’s gaze. The supermodel has posed for his lens countless times over her career and the intimacy the two share is palpable through the images they create.

The landscape’s picturesque Joshua Trees, striking mountain ridges, and cloud-speckled sky add cinematic depth to the black-and-white editorial. As the band of travelers explore the forgotten desert oasis, the viewer is invited to speculate on their journey: Where are they going? Where have they been? Desert Stories encapsulates a Californian’s tendency to follow their curiosities, stray from the beaten path and create unforgettable moments in the most remarkable places. These characteristics are echoed in the codes of Oliver Peoples: Never a trend. Always in style.
