The 2008 American Presidential Elections have been historic for many reasons. One reason is the fact that the Elections saw the Sarah Palin glasses acquiring cult status throughout the country. Most of the women in America are opting for Sarah Palin glasses when purchasing their prescription eyeglasses.

What is the reason behind the immense popularity of the glasses? The conservatively styled Sarah Palin glasses have a very unique and interesting design. The rimless glasses have redefined the meaning of the phrase ‘sleek and elegant’. The custom made glasses are set in Kawasaki standard frame. The set worn by Sarah Palin herself is the combination of 34-grey color and the Kawasaki 704 frame.

The primary reason behind the sudden spurt in the demand for designer sunglasses among the American women is Sarah Palin. Her conservatively styled glasses have become popular throughout the nation. The popularity can be attributed to the fact that the frames seem to be invisible and non-existent when the glasses are worn. This effect has helped Sarah Palin communicate with the public better. Today, every woman wants to own her own pair of Sarah Palin glasses.

Considering the huge popularity of the style of glasses worn by Sarah Palin, it is no surprise that the manufacturers of eyeglasses are offering a wide range of designer glasses named after Sarah Palin. A leading manufacturer of prescription eyeglasses, Best Price Glasses, too provides a wide range of Sarah Palin glasses.

Sarah Palin, the Governor of Alaska, has a very unique and distinctive face structure. She has recognized this and used the uniquely designed frames of her glasses to enhance her overall personality. With the help of her glasses, she makes a style statement without even saying a word. Her glasses make her look sophisticated and stylish without any snootiness or arrogance.

The most distinctive characteristic of Sarah Palin’s glasses is that they enhance her beauty without distracting the attention of the audience. The glasses are so subtly understated that one never realizes that Sarah is wearing glasses. When you look at her, your mind registers nothing but her stylish, charming and emotive face.

An analysis of the set up of the glasses helps us understand the effect better. The rectangular shape of the glasses and the meeting of the glasses near the temple creates an illusion that the glasses are placed lower than they actually are. The shape of the glass is perfect for the oval face of Sarah Palin. The glasses are placed such that the eyebrows seem to form an outline over the upper portion of the lens.

The sensation surrounding Sarah Palin’s glasses is the result of the unique design of the glasses as well as the unique structure of her face. Today, we find these glasses being worn by people all over the country.

If you like Sarah Palin glasses, get one from a reputed seller. However, do keep in mind that the structure of the face is a defining factor. If your face structure is not suited for such type of glasses, then even Sarah Palin’s glasses will not make you look as good as her. Opt for Sarah Palin glasses only if your face structure is suitable for such glasses.


Having worn spectacles now for about twenty years, I have constantly struggled with finding spectacles which suit me. As with most things nowadays there is just so much choice and in a way that can be a bad thing. So a few tips:-

1 – Although there are lots of different glasses, there are still only so many basic shapes. Find the best basic shape for you. It all depends if you have a long face, wide jaw or chubby cheeks for example.

2 – Take advice from the store as they have specialist knowledge but take a good friend with you also. One who will give an honest opinion. After all, they have no pecuniary interest in your choice. My optician also offers computer photos of you wearing different styles if you wish. I use this option but still prefer a person’s opinion. My eyes are so bad, though, I cannot see what I look like myself to make a purchasing choice.

3 – If you wear glasses all the time make sure that you are comfortable with them. It’s no good wearing glasses which rub on your nose and make it sore. After purchasing make sure that the optician fits them to suit you and take them back for readjustment if necessary.

4 – Don’t buy any glasses that are extremes of fashion, unless you are very wealthy, the glasses are cheap or know you will be changing your glasses each year.

So after the tips for me the best eyewear styles for women in general will have:-

Light weight frames and lenses.

Anti-glare lenses.

Titanium frames as they are tough, lightweight and hypo allergenic

I love the spectacles which are really just lenses with a bridge and arms. In other words rimless spectacles. However a pair I owned broke within a year and were not repairable.

Decent size lenses so that, as the wearer, you are not just looking at the frames all the time.

Vari-focals so that if you need glasses for your distance viewing and your close work you don’t have to buy and wear two lots of spectacles. However some people struggle with theses but you can usually buy a pair for a 28 day trial period and see how you get on with them.

And finally my new glasses. They are apparently the latest thing in England and based on American styling. They have straight arms and not those that hook behind your ears. At first they took a little while to get used to. I felt, initially, as if they were going to slip off all the time. Having had them adjusted though they are perfect now. As they don’t press behind the ears where there are a lot of nerves running they are pain free and I forget that I am wearing them. If you are offered some at the opticians give them a try. I am sure you will be as pleasantly surprised as I was.


If you are having problems with your eyesight, you may have to check into the need in for glasses, either reading glasses or prescription glasses.

She has a new car now, that little old lady with the white curls and tiny glasses. She wrote hers off that day she barrelled out of a side street and hit us sideways on! Hit us, even when we tried to get up on the empty pavement, out of her way, because there was no way she was going to stop! As the painful screeching of metal on metal ceased, and the steam hissed menacingly from under her squashed bonnet, my nerves kicked in.

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” I admit I yelled, as I struggled out of the passenger door, while my husband, the driver, banged his head down on the steering wheel and swore quietly to himself.

“Where do you think you were going?” We had right of way and were totally bewildered by her racing tactics on a suburban street.

“I was going to the farm for fresh eggs and bread,” she responded, seeming rather unconcerned by her dying vehicle and the big dent in the driver’s door of ours.

“Well, love,” said the spouse, with admirable patience. “You aren’t going anywhere in that, it’s a write-off”

He and I pushed her car into a safe opening on the street, then he calmly drove her home. She admitted it was her fault, so in a manner suggesting she had been here and done this all before, gave him her insurance details. Meanwhile, I had ceased to shake and jump and jiggle with shock. But our car was un-drivable, as the driver’s door would not close. We manged to drive the few hundred yards home. Why am I so glad about the insurance? Our insurance company immediately authorized a courtesy replacement vehicle for however long it took for all repairs. The problem was, the car was a Rover, and Rover had just ceased trading, so replacements were hard to come by. But the insurance company paid for the courtesy vehicle for four weeks, for all new parts and thank heavens we were covered. They asked if we needed to claim for injuries, in fact, I felt slightly guilty that I had no whiplash, cuts and bruises to please them with. They phoned about it, they sent letters about it, and finally accepted that nobody was hurt.

As we pass that side street on a daily basis, we watch out very carefully for one little old lady who appears to have forgotten the rules of the road. A week ago, my daughter and I encountered her, doing the exact same thing in her new car, no stopping, just barrelling on. I wonder what her premiums cost? I bet she is glad she has car insurance. Over the moon, even.
