American Idol and Eyewear Fashion | Long Island Eye Doctor

Joel Kestenbaum, OD

Is anyone watching American Idol this year?  The contestants are actually quite entertaining.  Of course what I notice is the eyewear fashion, especially that of Danny Gokey.  Danny is a 28 year old from Milwaukee Wisconsin who not only has wonderful vocal ability, he has excellent eyewear fashion sense.  Danny makes himself noticeable by wearing different eyeglasses each week.

Ever since Sarah Palin took center stage as a vice presidential candidate and wowed the world with her eyeglasses, people are noticing when a celebrity makes a fashion eye statement.  Danny has a keen sense of style, wearing different pairs of Versace glasses for each performance.

What Danny realizes that most people don’t is that the first thing that people notice when they look at you is your eyewear and your general style.  Most people wear the same eyeglasses every day but would never think of wearing the same clothes.  Think of how many pairs of shoes a woman has in her closet.  For that matter, how many dresses hang there?  It is mind boggling to think that most of those dresses are worn once.  And how about the shoes that only match that dress?  Are they worn once too?  And what do those dresses and shoes cost to be worn once?  Think about it.

Why don’t more people have eye fashion sense?  I suppose there are lots of reasons.  One must remember eyeglasses are worn every day.  Danny Gokey embraces the look of eyeglasses.  He has taken eyewear fashion to the next level.  The next time you are looking for eyeglasses, consider taking it to the next level.  Treat yourself to a bit of fashion for something you wear every day.
