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.

Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw were well prepared to protect their eyes in style as seen here on Nick’s own Instagram profile.

We know our blog readers love to help other people find out what sunglasses all the latest celebrities are wearing in the latest movies or down the beach, so we’ve got a challenge for you.

Can you identify these sunglasses worn by Lewis Hamilton? He seems to be in the habit of changing his sunglasses every week lately, so if it helps, the British, Mercedes F1 driver was wearing these sunnies at the Monaco GP at the end of May 2014.

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.

Unfortunately after searching our database of products we’re unable to ID them. Take a look at the glasses worn by Stanley below.

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

Unfortunately we do not stock Mykita at this time, but we feel this <a href="http://www.selectspecs.com/glasses/antares/j506/ss22.91.html

Titus Welliver wears Oakley Holbrook in Transformers: Age of Extinction

It’s been a little while for me since writing a movie related blog post (or any type of blog post for that matter!) but seeing the trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction has got me just a little bit excited!

So yes, Michael “I like to blow sh*t up” Bay is back with the 4th installment of Transformers, starring Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, and Nicola Peltz, and it’s guaranteed to be off the wall with regards to special effects and destruction!

Lenny Kravitz Wearing Aviator Sunglasses and a Chuffin’ MASSIVE Scarf!!!

Lenny Kravitz was out Christmas shopping in New York this week, wearing a hat, sunglasses and scarf and looking all fashionable and what-not. Who says you can’t wear sunglasses in Winter, when the sun is low in the sky?

Lenny Kravitz was wearing Aviator Sunglasses, one of his favourite styles (based on previous sightings).  But its hard not to notice that MASSIVE carpet off-cut he seems to be wearing for a scarf.  That’s probably a field-full of sheep that has gone into producing that fashion accessory… The thing must weigh an absolute tonne.  Whatever way
