Four Eyes | Nerd Glasses, KPop, and my Frozen Yoghurt.

If you're a fan of Korean pop music, Korean dramas, or just about anything that has to do with Korea (like me, lol), then you're probably aware that eyeglasses are big in Korea. Not big in terms of size, mind you. Rather, they've become part and parcel of Korean fashion. It's a trend that will remain huge, and stay for years to come.
I know right? :)
I must admit, I have a penchant for eyewear. But that has nothing to do with my Kpop fangirling or addiction to Korean dramas. You see, I wear prescriptive contact lenses and I need to have some sort of protection for my eyes (sunglasses, nerd glasses, or whatever) whenever I go out. Why not just wear my prescriptive glasses, you ask? Well, I have really bad eyesight, and my eye grade is -8.00. So you can just imagine how inconveniently thick those lenses are even if they're already of the 'air wear' kind.

Now let me show the latest addition to my growing collection of eyeglasses. It's a simple yet stylish pair from Four Eyes - the first online optical store in the Philippines. Launched in May 2013, Four Eyes aims to revolutionize eyewear in the country - by making it more affordable and accessible to every Filipino.

When shopping for glasses from the Four Eyes website, buyers will simply need to choose their desired frame, (they have an array of styles that I'm sure KPop fans will love) upload the doctor’s prescription (for prescriptive glasses) and pick the lens type (multi-coated, bifocal, polycarbonate, or transitions).  Four Eyes even allows buyers to try the glasses at home because they understand that 'people like to touch, feel and wear the product before purchasing'.

The best part? They don't charge shipping fees at all - even for their Home Try-On service.
Frozen Yoghurt!
Going back to my eyeglasses... Dubbed as 'Frozen Yoghurt', this style features a square shape with a saddle bridge. It's a full rim frame that looks half-rimmed from afar, and is made of sturdy plastic material.
Zooming in for the view.
It features the Four Eyes logo on the temple, with designs on the hinges that remind me of Ray-Ban's RX Eyeglasses.

This style can be worn both by men and women, and suits those with oval and round faces best. I have an oval face, and I love how this pair accentuates my cheekbones. :)
Half-rimmed? Not. :)
This pair comes with a protective carrying case and a cleaning cloth inside it. A 'Care Card' also comes along with the package.
Instructions written on the 'Care Card'.
'Frozen Yoghurt' reminds me of Yoochun's eyeglasses in the drama 'The Rooftop Prince.'
Yoochun as Lee Tae Yong.
And this pair worn by Bae Yong Joon, who - as far as I'm concerned - made nerd glasses look cool in Hallyu.
Bae Yong Joon aka Yon-sama. :)
Now here's how 'Frozen Yoghurt' looks like on me.
Well-proportioned shape that accentuates my cheek bones. :)
Channeling Yoochun. :)

Those glasses look really good on you. I am glad that you are able to get glasses easily where you live especially since you need them!

Sumi Go said...

That pair looks so nice on you! :D I've only started wearing full-rimmed and bigger eyeglasses. I was so used to wearing those with smaller, rimless lenses. I guess back where I started wearing glasses, the smaller the better. And I've been stuck to that era! :))

My glasses, the one in my blog logo, is similar in design with your glasses. Just different color sets.

I love that model you ordered! Good to know that we have this na in the Philippines. I always order from the US kasi we live far away from everything - talagang halos puro online shopping gawa ko dahil wala choice.

Christy Maurer said...

I must say, he DOES make the nerd glasses look cool lol. And so do you :) They look cute on you! I wear contacts but I wear glasses at night sometimes.

I LOVE the name Four Eyes for a glasses retailer. Taking a very old, ridiculous, and kind of humorous now insult against people who wear glasses and turning it to your advantage in a quirky and fun way, that is excellent marketing. Your new nerd glasses look awesome on you!

Genzel Kisses said...

I just bought a new pair of glasses a few months ago and this makes me want to buy a new pair soon! :D The glasses look great on you! :)

roviedear said...

Oh I like the Yon sama guy's glasses lol. I had no idea they liked eyeglasses in Korea. I didn't notice if many people were wearing them when I went there last year. XD
