BiOptics, also known as a biOptic in the singular, and sometimes more formally termed a biOptic telescope, is a term for a pair of vision-enhancement lenses with extreme magnification, used to improve distance vision for those with severely impaired eyesight, especially those with albinism.

Interviewed and photo shoot with WearYouWant , Thai blood online fashion retailer, some of you may have seen the photos I have posted on The Equinox Fashion Instagram already. However, what bring my attention here is that I have not done or shared my personal journey of ' how did I become a fashion blogger for The Equinox Fashion ' yet. Based on the interview I did (in Thai), here is something I cannot wait to share with you all. I think most of my inspiration come from personal taste in music I listen to. I don't know, it just relates to my feelings, and style. I also took a course in fashion design at Bangkok FA, the art school in Bangkok, Thailand. After graduated, and worked full-time for a while, I submitted my CV to do a volunteer during London Fashion Week 2013. Then, did the Masters in Fashion Marketing in Manchester.

I had recently gotten contact lenses and figured I would just switch over... I have astigmatism so my contact lenses have to be weighted and I can only see clearly when they are centered perfectly on my eye. After about a month I gave in and decided to bite the bullet and buy glasses, I had my eye on a pair of Tom Ford frames that I loved but realistically could not afford even with my vision coverage it would have been like $500. Thats when I...

Fashion meets tech-based function is happening like never before. There are sunglasses that Snapchat for you and watches that keep track of your every move. But sometimes the most ingenious inventions are the simplest. While these might look like your typical trendy eyewear, Felix Gray's glasses protect from tech-created blue light. They're the only way I could cure my chronic tech headaches, but the benefits are much great than just that. Since graduating college a couple of years ago, a lot...
