Glasses are not only a way to correct poor eyesight but also an accessory that expresses your style and personality. And of course, your taste and the trends change occasionally. If your glasses don’t feel quite right, you obviously want to renew yourself with new stylish frames.

For most people, it’s also inevitable that the visual defect gets worse, and then it’s time to review the strength of the glasses or perhaps start with progressive glasses. And reading and life in front of the computer become clearer and sharper with reading glasses or workplace glasses with the correct strength.

If you’re a person who rather a voids glasses, you may prefer to invest in lenses. Today, contact lenses can correct most vision defects, and there’s everything from easy-to-use one-day lenses – the kindest option for the eyes – to monthly and 24-hour lenses. And do you know that you can avoid reading glasses by using progressive lenses? For those who like changes, there are also colored lenses that allow you to either change your eyes or enhance your own eye color. Stockholm’s eyewear stores are simply full of opportunities!

Nividas

Nividas is another optician chain with several stores in Stockholm. It started in 2014 after one of the founders couldn’t find a decent pair of glasses with a limited student budget. That realization led to a desire to do something new in the industry, and Nividas – a new type of optician who challenges the traditional business with a nicer, simpler, and smarter concept for glasses – was born. The approach has been a victory. Today, they are one of Stockholm’s best opticians and are located in several central locations, including Åhléns.

Here you get the best possible solution for your eye health, and the range includes glasses, sunglasses, reading glasses, and blue light glasses. Affordable and stylish frames in good quality where the process from eye exam to new glasses is simple. The frames are designed by Nividas themselves and then manufactured without intermediaries to keep prices down. Everything you need – both frames, lenses, and lens treatments – is included in the price, and many of the glasses are also made of recyclable eco-material. Should you feel a little insecure before your decision, there are also home loans where you can borrow three pairs of glasses for five days completely free of charge.

Getting new glasses should be easy. It’s a concept that Ai Eyewear has advocated 100 percent.

You want several alternatives to choose from, perhaps different colors and shapes, to match them to today’s look. Ai Eyewear has the solution. They offer a subscription where you can rent two glasses for a small monthly fee. Also, you can change a pair per year – regardless of whether you have a different taste or your vision has changed. Perfect for those who always want a trendy pair of glasses in the correct strength. And did we mention that the eye examination is free? Of course, you can also buy the frames in cash if you prefer.
