Eye glasses are worn both as a fashion statement or as a functional item.
If you have to wear glasses, and think it is not cool take heart- – a University of Edinburgh study has found intelligent people are 30% more likely to have genes related to poor eye sight.
And as far as glasses and non- verbal image goes- In the USA, Some defence lawyers now swear by an increasingly popular idea of getting their client to wear glasses in order to come off “less menacing” to a jury. Veteran lawyer Harvey Slovis is of the meaning, “Glasses soften their appearance so that they don’t look capable of committing a crime.
And somehow we did see this during a very long court hearing some time ago in South Africa during the Oscar Pretorius case!
Choose your glasses and sunglasses with care as they not only protect your eyes but enhance your appearance and personality. Keep the following in mind:
Do not put on and take off your reading glasses or put them in your mouth when you are addressing an audience. Choose bi-focal or multi-focal glasses which do not have to be put on and taken off all the time.
There are many wonderful lenses and implants to improve our sight, today.
So remember, glasses are not ony fun, practical, functional, bt also make you look more smart!
