Last month, I attended the media preview for the grand opening of Eyeglass World’s newest location in Vista. Not only are they the only national retailer of prescription smart glasses (with brands like Google Glass and Vuzix), but they also have plenty of smart looking glasses as well! I got to meet up with fellow San Diego Style Bloggers Nicholle of Top Knots and Pearls and Lilia of Curls & Fashion, and we were treated to snacks & champagne as we toured the lab, roamed the new store, and tested out several of the smart glasses. I took lots of pictures, so I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed the event. I’ll be back there to grab a new pair of glasses from their gigantic selection!
Chris, the lab manager, shows us the thickness of a lens before it is ground down to the correct prescription and fitted into a frame. Then he showed us the machine where they test the strength of the lens. A small metal ball is dropped onto the lens through that long chamber!
