Stressed about what to get for that hard-to-buy-for person this Christmas?
Whether it’s your Kris Kringle, boss’s wife, babysitter, kid’s teacher or fussy family member, The Eye Practice is all stocked up with a whole range of beautiful eye wear and eye care gift suggestions – whatever your budget!
Cases and storage
Protect your glasses or sunglasses with one of these soft velour spectacle cases from World Collection ($30), which feature artwork from all your favourite artists, from Klimt to Monet.
For a similar look, with added protection, the Plumeria range of hard cases ($36) will always be easy to find in your handbag.
This stylish yet practical ‘Double Take’ spectacle case from Sorella ($42.50) doubles as a clutch and can hold two pairs of glasses (or you can pop your essentials in one side and travel light).
We just love this stunning range of eye-wear storage boxes from OYOBox. Beautifully crafted in polished timbers and resins, we can’t think of a more luxurious way to store your glasses. The OYOBox mini ($155) stores up to 4 pairs and the OYOBox maxi ($295) stores up to eight pairs. Never misplace your glasses again!
Know someone who doesn’t wear makeup due to sensitive eyes or skin? Blinc makes a range of mascaras and eyeliners for even the most sensitive eyes. One of the key features of this range is that it washes off with plain water – no need for cleaners. A gentle rub in the shower and it’s gone.
ASPECT is another exciting brand for sensitive types. They make a skincare range suitable for the most discerning wearer. Only available from dermatologists or dry eye clinics, this range is pure heaven for dry eye sufferers and anyone with a delicate skin type. The Eye Practice stocks the full range of these products.
Dry eye relief
If you know someone who suffers with dry eye syndrome, then we’ve sourced the perfect gift. The Tranquileyes Onyx sleep shield ($99) protects your eyes from dryness as you sleep. It also comes in a clear (crystal) version ($99) for use during waking activities where the eyes are prone to drying, such as long-haul flights.
For the latest eye wear, it’s hard to go past these fashion-forward styles from Roger Eye wear ($410). Creating an animated look, they’re sure to be a talking point!
The latest range of Linda Farrow sunglasses (from $600) retain the luxury of gold plated metal trim but with a more affordable price tag.
Fleye is another of our top eye wear picks for summer, with styles in a range of geometric shapes and stunning colours.
