The One about the Carrera CA6637/N Eyeglasses and Eyezen lenses

It’s another year and it’s time to get new eyeglasses. I know..I know…it wasn’t long ago when I got my two eyeglasses last year (my Ray-Ban Optics RB 7014 and the MarchonNYC Broadway Downtown M-852), one for whenever I’m reading and one whenever I feel I need them for driving. But this time around, I felt it was inconvenient of having two eyeglasses.  I wanted one that did everything I […]

The One about the Ray-Ban

I received my first pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses when I was a young teenager.  And as cool as they were, the version I was gifted by my uncle were a size that nearly pinched the blood vessels in my head because they were smaller. I would learn much later that if you want Ray-Ban’s, the first thing people should do is try them on and find out if they were […]
