Your eyeglasses are more than just a tool for clear vision. They can be a stylish and attractive fashion accessory that will help you look your best. Hakim Optical is proud to offer a wide selection of frames following some of the latest trends to ensure that your new glasses complement your style and personality.
Geeky, Thick, and Round
Recent trends in eyewear are bringing geek chic back into style. Glasses with thick dark or tortoiseshell frames have become extremely popular. Choose from a more rectangular wayfarer look or try out Johnny Depp-style round lenses with a keyhole nose bridge. Both of these looks are versatile enough to wear with any outfit while lending you a smart and stylish air.
As fashion trends delve back into the ’60s, the stylish and feminine cateye shape is returning to glasses. This style features ovular lenses with a slight upward tilt, mimicking the smart, sassy look of a cat’s eye. You can choose from varying extremes in this shape for an extremely vintage or more understated effect. Some frames even feature scalloped edges or other detail work to really make your eyeglasses pop.
Vivid Color and Texture
No matter what shape of eyeglass frame appeals to you, consider trying it in a bright color or texture. Many frames come in a variety of exciting colors and patterns that will really bring out your eyes and your face. You can buy the same frames in multiple colors to coordinate with outfits or occasions, or choose a more subtle textured look that pairs with any outfit. Don’t be afraid to try new combinations and explore the different textures available as glasses continue to become vivid fashion accessories that bring out your individuality.
At Hakim Optical, you can choose from all the latest styles in eyeglasses. You’ll find frames, contacts, safety eyewear, and more when you visit any one of our many locations throughout Canada.

Dry eyes occur when your body does not produce sufficient tears. Tears act as the eye’s natural lubricant and defensive system, keeping them moist and forming a protective barrier. Talk to your eye care provider at Hakim Optical about treatment options that can improve your comfort and vision.
About Dry Eye Disease
Your eyes will feel dry when you do not produce enough tears to provide normal lubrication and comfort. This condition may be caused by a number of factors, including poor tear quality, lowered production of tears, problems with the eyelids, or even certain medications. Tear production may be affected by age or hormonal changes as well. Regardless of the cause, when the eyes are not lubricated properly, they begin to feel dry and may itch or burn. They may appear red and have increased sensitivity to light. Dry eyes may also feel tired, swollen, and in some cases tear excessively.
Relieving the Symptoms of Dry Eyes
Talk to your eye care provider to discuss your individual case and address your specific symptoms. Mild symptoms can be mitigated with over-the-counter eye drops or ointments to add artificial lubrication to the eyes. Placing a warm washcloth over the eyes for a few minutes and gently washing the outside of your lids with baby shampoo can help relieve swelling. If these simple treatments don’t work, your eye care provider may consider addressing the cause of your dry eyes. If tears drain too easily from the eyes, your tear ducts can be temporarily or permanently blocked to preserve moisture. Prescription medications and eye inserts may also bring relief. Contact lenses designed to trap moisture near the eye and protect it are also an option for those with severe dry eye symptoms.

As with any other tool, your eyeglasses need care and cleaning. Caring for your eyeglasses is easy, but there are some common mistakes you’ll want to avoid to keep your glasses looking great.
Avoid using tissues or paper products to clean the lenses, as they can scratch the surface. Using your shirt tail to clean the lenses can also cause scratches. Never use Windex or any other all-purpose glass cleaner, because the ammonia in these cleaners will ruin the coating on your lenses. For more tips on how to avoid harm to your glasses while cleaning, be sure to check out this video.
