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 wanted, for reading, driving and […]

The One about the Smith Optics Parallel D Max

But to my surprise, I saw the following: Yes… “Made in China”… I was confused… I purchased my […]

The One about the MarchoNYC Downtown M-852

So, I went for the MarchoNYC Downtown M-852 (black weave). For those not familiar with Marchon Eyewear, the company is based in New York and was founded in 1983.  The company was acquired by VSP (a vision insurance […]

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 for you.  While the 55’s […]
