The Referee Knows Best

Ian John-Lewis

It’s not every day you get a world class boxing referee come into your store but when Ian John-Lewis was invited to come into SelectSpecs and undergo the most advanced eye exam available – an OCT, he happily obliged.

The OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) test not only detects a number of key eye conditions but also scans in 3D enabling the optometrist to look beneath the surface of the regular retinal image and cross-reference any possible areas of concern from the scan.

X-Men: Days of Future Past. Eyewear from the movie – Can you ID them?

Not only am I excited for the the next Transformers movie, but I’m also massively looking forward to seeing the latest Marvel film, X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Even though I’m beginning to lose count of the amount of X-Men movies made, I’ll be staggered if this is not a worldwide hit with movie fans!

Viewing the trailer (see below) we have noticed a few of the characters wearing either glasses or sunglasses frames…

Stanley Tucci Glasses in Transformers: Age of Extinction – Mykita Mylon PANTARA

Following on from my previous post about Titus Welliver wearing Oakley Holbrook sunglasses in Transformers: Age of Extinction, we have noticed that Stanley Tucci (that guy with the teeth from Hunger Games…), who stars as Joshua, is wearing a rather retro looking prescription frame.

Thanks to our readers, these have been identified as Mykita Mylon PANTARA
