It’s an exciting time for Marvel fans! You may have seen the new Thor: Love and Thunder trailer 10 thousand times. So, let’s gear up together with Marvel sunglasses and Marvel eyeglasses for an adventure and a bit of magic. 

Thor isn’t the only Marvel character taking over our screens. So, whether you are glued to your seat under the new moonlight or tied in the midst of a universe of madness, SmartBuyGlasses has you covered with fun and protective eyewear! 

We’ve reimagined your favorite Marvel characters with glasses! So, no matter the weather or universe, we have the right pair of glasses for you to enjoy your heroic adventures.

Self-care with Thor

You might remember the almighty Thor with sunglasses after the endgame battle. Well, who doesn’t need to treat themselves to some deserved self-care? 

What better way to kick back and relax than with a pair of trendy Ray-Ban folding wayfarer sunnies. Our hero chose a classic black frame, but we have vamped up the look with a Light Havana color and brown lenses

It’s truly a great pair to rock with any outfit. The fold-up frame is also a cool, practical feature. Sudden alien attack? Fold ’em up and tuck away easily.

Take off with Star-Lord

You can’t let your kids fly an intergalactic rocket around the galaxy without the best protective eyewear. 

Make your kids’ playtime come to life with a funky pair of UVEX sportstyle sunnies. They are sturdy and offer quality UV protection with vibrant mirrored lenses

Combine the matte orange frame with the shiny orange of Star-Lords’ spaceship and go full throttle!

Ladies & Gentlemen, it’s her

As Thor kicks back and relaxes, the Asgardian people have a new ruler, and she’s all types of cool. 

Inspired by the Valkyrie outfit, we’ve picked out an icy pair of Tom Ford Penelope sunglasses just for you. 

Some kings and queens pamper themselves in gold, but be different and do it with a silver frame. The oval design would best suit square faces, creating a balance between the shapes. 

But if you’ve tried this pair on using our Virtual Try-On and loved them, don’t let your face shape stop you!

Girl power with Lady Thor

For those looking for everyday eyewear, we’ve got just the pair for you!

Make way for the new Goddess of Thunder: Lady Thor! Who says only guys can swing around a mighty hammer and spark up a battle? 

Although we aren’t 100% sure of her identity, why not get yourself a pair of Gunnar Apex Blue-Light glasses for the big reveal. 

This pair of Gunnar glasses have blue light blocking lenses to prevent eye strain and headaches.

So, sit back, relax, put on your trendy blue light glasses, and enjoy a Marvel marathon as you patiently wait for July 8th.

Figure out who you are

Figure out who you are and indulge in some self-care by upgrading your look with some trendy new prescription glasses and sunnies. We can always use a bit more love, magic, and thunder to stir up our style.

History of the Ray-Ban Clubmaster

History of the Ray-Ban Clubmaster

Aurora is a Digital Marketing Specialist for SmartBuyGlasses. She’s enthusiastic about supporting the marketing efforts across multiple channels. Her goal is to create riveting content that is also educational by bringing to you all the latest eyewear trends.

One of the most instantly recognizable sunglasses models in history are the Ray-Ban Clubmaster. Follow us as we detail its illustrious history.

The Browline Style

Interestingly, its iconic browline style was actually introduced 30 years before the first ever Clubmaster was made. Browline glasses first became popular in the 50s and 60s after being spotted on intellectuals and cultural icons like Malcolm X. It is widely believed that his glasses were designed by Ray-Ban. However, they were produced by a lesser-known brand called American Optical Sirmonts. The browline style is typified by the upper part of the frame rim which is distinctively bolder and thicker than the lower part. It enjoyed a decade of popularity in the 50s and accounted for half of all eyewear sales at the time. Its association with authority and institution, however, saw the style dwindle in popularity between the 60s and 70s. It was not until the late 70s, and largely thanks to their appearance in the film Moonlighting (starring Bruce Willis), that the browline style bounced back into fashion. Although Ray-Ban already dominated the eyewear market by that time, they were quick to develop their own version and so, the Ray-Ban Clubmaster was born.

Evolution of the Clubmaster

Over the next ten years the Ray-Ban Clubmaster skyrocketed in popularity and appeared in two of the best-known films of the nineties: Malcom X starring Denzel Washington (1992) and Falling Down starring Michael Douglas (1993). The model shed its conservative image and increasingly became a symbol of retro chic style.   It became a model for everyone and now it is its own icon like many of the other popular Ray-Ban models we know and love, like the Wayfarer and Aviator frames.

The Clubmaster Collection Today

Except for the classic model, there have also been some interesting variations in color and style. Some examples are the Oversized Clubmaster, the Folding Clubmaster, the Fleck Clubmaster, and the Clubmaster Doublebridge. All are great for both men and women wanting to add a little retro touch. Make sure to also check out our full collection of Ray-Ban eyeglasses and Ray-Ban sunglasses for the best Ray-Ban deals!

Should I Wear Blue Light Glasses When Watching TV and Using My Phone?

Should I Wear Blue Light Glasses When Watching TV and Using My Phone?

By now, with all the hype surrounding blue light glasses, we should all know the benefits of wearing them. Thanks to their lenses, they can help to reduce things like headaches and allow you to sleep better at night. But, with an overload of information surrounding blue light-blocking glasses, do we really know when we should be using them?

Should I wear blue light glasses when watching TV?

Whether you watch TV during the day or at night, it’s important to ensure we protect our eyes in the best way possible. When watching TV for long and short periods, we are subjected to our favorite shows, movies, and the high levels of blue light waves emitted from our TV screens. If you find that after binging your favorite series, your eyes feel fatigued, a pair of blue light glasses are something you should consider buying.  

 

zFORT® lenses can limit the penetration of blue light wavelengths between 380nm and 500nm. These lenses provide a fort-like barrier to your eyes and reduce the painful symptoms of one of our favorite pastimes. The best thing about these innovative lenses is that they can be added to your prescription glasses. So, if you need prescription lenses while watching TV from afar, you can benefit from clear vision and keep your eyes healthy with blue light-blocking lenses. 

Do blue light glasses work for phones?

Over 65% of the world’s population use mobile phones and spend an average of 5 to 6 hours on them daily. Like TVs, our mobile phones emit the same blue light wavelength that can damage our eyes. When using our mobile phones, we are typically much closer to our screens, and with constant eye stimulation and the damaging blue light rays, serious eye damage can occur. Whether a quick text or scrolling endlessly through social media, blue light glasses should always be worn when using our phones. Our eye health is important to take seriously, so if you want to prevent your eyes from fatigue and aging, blue light lenses are your best bet. 

Blue light glasses and digital screens 

Our eyes are a vital organ we sometimes forget to take seriously. So, the answer to these questions: should you wear blue light glasses while watching TV and do blue light glasses work for phones is a resounding yes. But, if you want to improve your eye care and reduce your risk of serious damage, blue light glasses are a great affordable option for everyone. To learn more about how blue light glasses can help with digital eye strain, check out our Optical Center articles and become an expert.
