Greetings, I am new to optiboard and have been a dispensing optician for close to 9 years now. Over the last month I have recieved several inquiries and comments about Sarah Palin's Kawasaki eyeglasses that are all the rage.
I was watching the debate this evening and noticed that when she turns her head, there's no displacement of her face line/the image behind the lens. This leads me to believe she has little to no correction, and could possibly be wearing them for the age old addage of 'making her look smarter'?
I'm sure this is not generally a political forum, nor am I trying to start an ugly debate about who-is-voting-for-who... But I found it interesting and thought other opticians might be able to appreciate this small observation.
Image is important in our culture and we all have patients who have purchased glasses 'just for the look of it' without correction. Anyone else have any thoughts on the possibility she is wearing glasses to change people's perception about her?
