The Truth About Stock Eyewear

For years, buying eyewear has been the same: You go to an eyewear store, browse the frames they have, find ones that look close enough to what you’re looking for, and then have your glasses fitted all while making style and fit compromises along the way. Many people think that this is the only way to buy eyewear, but stock frames come with a load of drawbacks when compared to custom-tailored eyewear and other variants. Let’s take a closer look at the ugly truths about stock eyewear and how you can avoid compromising on your next pair.


Not Every Face Is the Same

The first and most obvious problem with stock eyewear is that they’re made for one imaginary “average” face. Stock frames are premade, mass-produced, and strive to be one-size-fits-all—but everyone has unique facial features that stock frames just can't match. Pinching? Red marks on the nose? Slipping? People across the world experience these issues and assume they are a part of the glasses wearing experience. But with the right frames, they shouldn't be.

Conversely, when you design eyewear from the ground up, you can take unique, 3D measurements of your face, which will inform your exact glasses measurements, rather than settling for eyewear that doesn’t fit.

The Details Matter

Little things like the angle of the lenses, the position of the nose bridge, the width of the lenses, and other small details in a pair of glasses can impact the way you see and can even cause headaches or other vision-related issues. Stock glasses don’t account for the small measurements like pupillary distance and bridge width and are instead made using specs taken from compromise. Even if your face is close to “average,” with over 2,000 unique measurements on everyone’s face, stock eyewear is bound to get one of them wrong.

Limited Options

Although some shops will stock hundreds of different frames, finding a pair that hits every one of your requirements is like finding a needle in a haystack. Eyewear is more than a tool that helps you see but is also a fashion accessory that lets you show off your style. So, even if you were to find glasses that fit reasonably well on your face, you might not like the color or materials. Or maybe you love the color of one pair but like the shape of a different pair of frames and the fit of another. Again, with stock glasses, you have to compromise, but when designing eyewear from scratch, you can pick every detail for a pair as unique as you—that fit the way they should.

Designing Custom-Tailored Eyewear Is Easier Than Ever Before

Unlike with bespoke suits, you don’t need to go anywhere to create a pair of custom-tailored eyewear. Thanks to the innovative eyewear company Topology, all you need is a smartphone and your face to get started. Simply scan your face using the Topology App and design your new frames from scratch through virtual try-on functionality. From there, the company will use your unique measurements to build the perfect eyewear for your face.

Given all of the problems with stock glasses, wearing custom-tailored eyewear is the only way to get the most out of your prescription all while enjoying superior comfort and elevated style. If you’re tired of searching the kids’ section for glasses for small faces, and you’re ready for frames that fit and look the part, it’s time to try Topology.

About Topology

Located in the San Francisco Design District, Topology specializes in producing custom-tailored eyewear for every face. The Topology App takes 3D facial measurements using AR technology to capture 2,000 unique points on your face to help engineer one-of-a-kind, custom-tailored eyewear. You can virtually try on the frames and make adjustments to the size and fit before your prototype pair arrives.

"No! I Don't Need Reading Glasses!" by Virginia Ironside
No! I Don't Need Reading Glasses! - Virginia Ironside,Maggie Ollerenshaw

A few years ago, I read "No! I Don't Want To Join A Bookclub!" by Virginia Ironside. It was a diary of her character, Marie Sharp's sixtieth year and it was that rare thing, a book that was witty, humane and spoke truthfully about getting older.


At the time, I was in my late fifties and it seemed part warning and part reassurance about what was to come.


"No! I Don't Need Reading Glasses!"is the diary of Marie Sharp's sixty-fifth year. My wife and I are both sixty-one and as we listened to this audiobook we kept finding ourselves laughing and saying, "Yes! That's EXACTLY how it is. Why does no one talk about this?"


Structured as one month of journal entries per chapter, the book carries us through Marie coming to term with the reality of being old and having only getting older and dying ahead of her. It's not a gloomy book, in fact, it's filled with humour, but it doesn't dodge the issues that face the old, even comfortably-off, healthy older people with children and grandchildren.


There is some fun as Marie works with her very traditional no-computer-on-my-desk solicitor to make her will. I've found that solicitors can be remarkably coy about this, as if you can make a will without ever discussing why it might be needed. Marie's matter-of-fact conversation, looking at all the combinations of who might predecease whom and what that would mean, made me smile, as did her antics to challenge the local Council's plan to allow a hotel to be built on one of the few remaining green spaces in Shepard's Bush. True, it's mainly used by drug dealers but that's no reason to allow the Council to take the space away.


The book deals, very compassionately but very accurately, with Alzheimer's and how it steals people from us well before they actually die. Then there are the small oddities of being old: the tendency to fall off ladders,  the need to wait for your joints to unlock in the mornings, the surprise when strangers treat you as though you're old when all you've done is forget to get your purse out in the checkout queue because you were so angry at the person ahead of you for being so slow, It also covers those occasional mornings when you wake and ask yourself, "Why am I still here? What use am I?" before making a cup of tea and getting on with doing what needs to be done.


The joys and challenges of having your child and grandchild move to another continent, including how inadequate Skype is for really staying in touch are covered.


If you're in your sixties, or you want to know what it's like to be in your sixties, or even if you just want a smile, this is the book you should listen to.
