HOW TO TAKE A SELFIE WEARING GLASSES

We all take selfies – they are the largest growing trend in the world. Over 1 million selfies are taken every day! But what are the tips for taking a great selfie when you wear glasses?

Rule No. 1 is to make sure the lenses of your glasses have an anti-reflection coating – as well as giving you clearer vision, this will avoid reflections on your lenses and allow your glasses to look good in all types of light. At Drummoyne Optometry, we recommend Essilor’s Crizal anti-reflection coating.

Here are some professional tips courtesy of teleinfographics.com for successful selfie-taking – with your glasses on!

  • The rule of thirds – the rule of thirds basically asks you to imagine your screen as a grid of 3 by 3 sections to create reference points. Then, when you are taking the selfie, make sure your eyes are a third down from the top most edge of the screen and inclined to one side of the frame. This will help you get your glass covered eyes in the best angle.
  • Focus on the face – The main objective of the selfie, in general, is to focus on your face and not the background. An out of focus background is what you need to create a selfie which arouses interest.
  • Enhance to accentuate – A little touching up of the selfie is not a bad thing to do! In fact, by using one of the enhancing applications, you can accentuate your facial features for a more remarkable selfie.
  • Backlighting – ensure that the source of light is behind your head when taking a selfie. This will create an interesting impact and form the perfect source of light.
  • Tilt your head – tilt your head slightly in a way that the glasses are lower than the angle at which the light source has been set.

Relief for Dry Eye

RELIEF FOR DRY EYE WITH HYLO FORTE

‘Dry Eye’ or “Dry Eye Syndrome” are the terms used to describe insufficient tear film production to keep your eyes lubricated and comfortable.  An eye lubricant such as Hylo Forte can help reduce symptoms and discomfort.

Symptoms of dry eye include:

  • Burning, stinging eyes
  • Runny eyes (which goes against the notion of ‘dry eye’ but is often a symptom)
  • Tired eyes
  • Itchiness and redness
  • Eyes that feel gritty
  • Occasional blurred vision

Anyone of any age can suffer from dry eye, though as we get older we tend to produce less tear film. Some medications can trigger it, as can menopause and medical conditions such as arthritis. Another key factor these days is the amount of time we all spend on computer screens and other digital devices. That, combined with air conditioning or winter heating, creates the perfect conditions for dry eye.

Hylo Forte relieves these symptoms and provides long-lasting and soothing relief. I use it myself when I suffer from dry eye. It is very easy to use, is preservative-free and is also very economical as it lasts for 6 months after opening. Hylo Forte is available at Drummoyne Optometry – speak to us about how it can assist in the management of your dry eye symptoms. We can also perform a comprehensive dry eye examination and recommend further treatments. Book an appointment online at www.drummoyneoptometry.com.au or call us on 9181 3157.
