There is something to be said about what can be seen, and there isn’t very much to say when you can’t see at all. We are taking a closer look at a Cat Eye, or Horn-rim. A bug-eye or no rim?? What are we talking about? Why, the wonderful world of corrective eye-wear!
Dating back to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, we find the first known case of ‘magnification’ depicted as ‘simple glass meniscal lenses’. Evolving further to the days of Emperor Nero of Rome, when a globe or glass was filled with water to aid in enlarging small written text, it is also said that Nero would watch the Gladiatorial Games using an Emerald as a corrective lens.
Personnel style does not take a back seat when it comes to sporting frames for focusing. Invented for the genuinely blind, but manufactured in gross nowadays with plain plastic lenses for modern-day hipsters. We’ve taken a journey through decades to discover just how far we’ve come.

Tuck your ambition where no one will notice, or wear it one your sleeve! Only you can decide how you’d like to carry on through this life.

Deem yourself worthy of being a hero and envision the future waiting around the corner, your destiny is your own to fulfill.
But be forewarned, the demons come out at night to play and to feast. They harvest our hopes and turn dreams to waking anxiety. A dream has turned to nightmare in what seemed like a flash, now arousing feelings horror and distress. But you are more powerful than creature of the dark. Fight or flight? Do we deem ourselves worthy of accomplishing the many feats which plague us? Imperfectly conscious, the truth will be told.
“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.”
Edgar Allan Poe
There is an energy within our dreams which fuels our ambitions. A strong desire to accomplish more than which greats us each morning, leaving us yearning for more each night. A fantasy of a richer tomorrow, where dreams are bright, where we won’t see a fright. We must battle the darkness as it comes to reap our hopes and prayers.
The demons are listening, we must cast away any doubt! Stay strong in our fantasies and remember, don’t be afraid of the doubt.
