No one needs to settle for one look (Empowered Eyewear review)

Empowered Eyewear two customizable eyewear frames and three-frame hardcase

Stop your vision aid’s sabotage of your look

Since I was a teenager, I really hated my glasses. Selecting eyeglasses was a real pain in the b…! Not only that I was too short-sighted to judge whether the pair was flattering on my face color- and style wise, they also were a long-term (at that time 3 years), limiting commitment for my looks. As if that weren’t enough! Since my parents payed for them, they had the last word in the choice! The result: Mine were sporty, while my style wasn’t casual at all! Don’t get me wrong; the glasses were nice and my parents made a good choice at the pair looking flattering on my face. However, their choices didn’t match my style and color preferences at all! The pairs would have been perfect with jeans, a T-shirt, sneakers and parka sort of look. But I wasn’t allowed to wear this “uniform” (everyone in my class was wearing). The result, I didn’t wear my glasses because they screwed up my outfits! I called my glasses “protheses” back then!

Interchangable eyewear – a dream comes true for all who need prescription glasses

Of course, we are now grown up and in charge of the choice of (and paying for) our glasses. However, despite there is a huge selection of great styles and colors, it seems nearly impossible to find the perfect eyeglasses that work for every occasion, outfit and moods. For example, just think about a monochromatic outfit and the color of the frame clashes with the look! Or your great glam gown for a formal wedding you are invited too. It would call for a frame in an elegant neutral color, but your frame is candy red because that flows well with your casual, active (life) style. Sounds like built-in frustration!

Thus, when asked to review Empowered Eyewear‘s interchangable eyewear I couldn’t resist to try them out. Adjusting the color to your look would solve a lot of problems stylewise for all of us who need vision aids. 😉

When I tried out their Power frame in two colors (grateful golden tortoise, self-confident sapphire blue) I thought “That’s it! Now one can use the own glasses as a finishing touch for the look!”

Just compare the outfit photos above as an example for how the color of the frame can change the vibe of your outfit. The grateful golden tortoise Power frame yields a soft, grateful look vs. the self-confident sapphire blue frame that gives the same look a tougher, more intellectual vibe.

How easy this style problem can be solved! You wonder why nobody had this great idea before!

The color of the glasses really can make a great difference!

Price-performance ratio

The frames start at an incredibly low suggested retail price of $95! Since you only have to pay for the prescription glasses once, but can buy several frames to put your lenses in, you will save a fortune buying over buying different pairs of prescription glasses (where you would have to pay for the prescribed lenses too). I also like that the price for the frames of interchangable eyewear is in the same ballpark than the cost of normal frames. Thus, why limiting yourself to one color instead of having multiple colors for just the price of an additional frame?
