Having just spent four years at a Big Ten University with a campus and college town well-known for arts and fashion (Go Cream & Crimson!), my eyes saw the latest fashion ins and Two IUB students model these popular sunglasses with messages.outs like skinny jeans or screen-printed jerseys among other sights like oversized sunglasses and boat shoes.  Over the years the fashion police weren’t on patrol too often as I witnessed a multitude of interesting and sometimes bizarre fashion statements that students, professors, or residents wore to express themselves and certain messages.

One of these fashion statements was easy to read and see as students wore them all over campus during the many sunny days we enjoyed in Bloomington: sunglasses with printed messages and logos.  These shades were and still are the “in” thing among many IU college students especially those within certain organizations like sports teams or fraternities and sororities.  These glasses and lenses with messages on them were and are a perfect tool to spread awareness among students on campus about certain events or to share pride for an organization.

Besides being great tools for advertising, this fashion statement serves a most important purpose: to protect the eyes of the wearer from harmful UV rays. Although these glasses aren’t coated like Dr. Tavel Purifier sunglasses to dramatically reduce glare, wearing them is a step in the right direction to protect the eyes.  Students and anyone who often goes outside to work or participate in recreational activities like boating, running, golfing etc. should consider Purifier sunglasses found at Dr. Tavel as they are perfect for outdoor enthusiasts according to Allaboutvision.com from their ability to reduce glare from flat services like water or a sunny road.  Not many students always think about visiting a Bloomington eye doctor during their tenure at school (although it is important that they do), so that even without getting an eye examination, wearing messenger sunglasses or any sunglasses like Dr. Tavel’s Purifiers helps protect the eyes from damaging UV rays.  So this fashion statement is indeed a valid one, one my eyes approve!
