Eyewear is ultimate functional accessory, Stylist Sakolsky
Dec '08
Trendsetters are gearing up for the holiday season, scouring retail stores for the latest accessories to dress up their wardrobes. Accessorizing your overall look this fall with fashionable eyewear can help you stand out and will also provide you with the benefit of eye health and wellness.

According to New York stylist and optician Matthew Sakolsky of famed Morgenthal-Frederics in Manhattan, eyewear has replaced the handbag as the stylish accessory that makes the most personal statement of self expression. Runway models and celebrities are gracing the pages of the hottest fashion magazines sporting eyewear that makes bold statements about their personalities.

Sakolsky adds "Eyewear is much more than a fashion statement; it's the ultimate functional accessory." Proper lenses can also protect your eyes against harmful, year-round ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.

"Eyewear should be seasonal, practical and functional, and should offer protection from UV rays to help prevent long-term damage to the eyes," he added. "Fitting your eyeglasses with photochromic lenses, such as Transitions(R) lenses, allows you to be conscious of both fashion and healthy sight. Transitions lenses can be fitted with virtually any frame and are offered in the widest range of lens materials and designs."

Clear indoors and at night, Transitions lenses automatically become sunglass-dark outdoors to block 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays and help to reduce painful glare.

According to Sakolsky, prescription eyeglass wearers who choose photochromic lenses have the best of both worlds -- convenience and comfort, while avoiding having to switch between everyday and sun lenses.

Fashionistas, celebrities and New Yorkers of all types have come to rely on Sakolsky's advice. He offers the following tips for selecting this holiday season's hottest accessory:
• Take risks with shapes; don't limit your choices. As long as you feel comfortable when wearing your frames, you have selected the perfect frames for you.
o Notable shapes for this holiday season include the "nerd" and 1950's retro style
o The "nerd" look is especially grate for men, while the oversized retro style will work for virtually every woman who wants to make a bold statement
• Select bold colors. Frames come in so many fabulous colors. If you wear glasses everyday, consider investing in a second pair with a more distinctive color to change your look.
o Colorful eyewear is great for women as it can make you appear as though you're wearing make-up when you are not
o Gold and shades of green are all the rage this season
