Most screens and fluorescent lights emit high energy blue light that can cause eye damage and strain. That’s why after prolong use of our smartphones, tablets and computers, we can have dry eyes, blurred vision and eye strain. BlueReflect lenses offer a protective shield that reduces glare and blue light from digital screens and artificial lights. So if Dad is like us and we use our digital devices constantly, give Dad the protection he needs and the vision he wants. Your can order your BlueReflect lenses with any pair of specs with or without a prescription. Here are my choices for sunglasses and specs to choose from.

RRP $69: Bobby Jones Raymond GN Olive Tortoise 49 (Sunglasses)

When it comes to shopping for the right perfume (cologne to the oldies out there). When choosing the perfect scent, I sometimes fail to ask myself, is this something he would wear, does he have a scent? Selected department stores are more than willing to give you a hand in choosing the perfume that matches your Dad’s personality.

Energetic, creative and modern is the Balmain, Man, that boldly combines classics with unique masculine tone. With woody and oriental scent the thrill of spices is sensual and crisp. The perfume has subtle violet leaf tones, perfect for the man inspired by new generations. Trend Setter

Whereas the Montblanc Emblem Intense is a brand new interpretation from its signature style. Similarly with the fresh wood aeromatic culture and use of spice – nutmeg, cinnamon and rare woods resonates from this perfume. Is your dad self-assured, disciplined and a distinguished gentleman amongst his friends? Sharp-Suiter
