I got my three pairs of glasses fitted several years ago; two pairs of bifocal glasses and a pair of sunglasses, but recently those glasses became unfit for my eyesight and I decided to order new glasses. Especially this time, I'd like to get jogging-oriented sunglasses, but there was no shop to handle them. I flew to Tokyo. The following pictures show a commercial board in the shop and my sunglasses, which were delivered a month later. My new sunglasses adopt an up-to-date technology of polarizing lens and cut unnecessary light. This feature gives me clear vision. If you put something white on your car's dashboard, its reflection on the windshield will hinder your driving. With these sunglasses on, however, the reflection doesn't occur. It's amazing. Moreover, some devices are added for stabilizing on the back of the nose. It would help the glasses to stay in the proper position during jogging. I presumed that sunglasses are simply for cutting the strong daylight using dark lenses. It was partially correct, but partially wrong. I tried some lenses on. They were for high altitude climbing, skiing, night driving, and so on. When I wore one for high altitude climbing, the three colors of the traffic light were all seen as black. This type of sunglasses are naturally prohibited to wear during driving. In the case of one for night driving, the view was light, whereas the glare of headlights was suppressed. I ordered one for jogging-use.
My eyesight was tested and I picked the lenses and frame. It took about one and a half hours for these procedures. I'll report later about my impression from use. The pictures in which a red building is shown is Tokyo Station, which was renovated into its original appearance recently. Lots of tourists were swarming around. Taking advantage of a break in the flow of people, I took some pictures.
