From the Library to the Lab: Sense Eyewear's Guide to UBC Finals

As a student, finals season at UBC can be an overwhelming time. But with a little preparation and the right mindset, you can make it through with flying colors. At Sense Eyewear, we know that having the right pair of glasses can make all the difference, especially during long study sessions and exams. Here are some tips to help you prepare for finals season at UBC, and how your eyewear can play a role in your success.

  1. Start with a study plan: Finals season can be a stressful time, but creating a study plan can help alleviate some of that stress. Make a schedule of when you will study and what topics you will cover each day. Use a planner or a study app to keep track of your progress. Knowing that you have a plan can help you feel more in control and less overwhelmed.

  2. Take care of your eyes: Long hours of staring at a screen or book can take a toll on your eyes. Make sure you take breaks to rest your eyes and stretch your body. You can also invest in a pair of blue light blocking glasses to reduce eye strain and fatigue. At Sense Eyewear, we have a variety of blue light blocking lenses that can be added to any frame.

  3. Find a study spot that works for you: UBC has many great study spots on campus. The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre is a popular choice for students, with its large study rooms and quiet floors. If you prefer a cozier spot, check out the various cafes and coffee shops on campus. Blue Chip in the Nest or the Agora Dining Hall are both great options.

  4. Stay fueled: Studying for finals requires a lot of brain power, and the right nutrition can help fuel your focus. Make sure you eat a balanced diet and stay hydrated. You can also treat yourself to some brain-boosting snacks like blueberries or almonds. And don't forget to indulge in a cup of coffee or tea to keep you energized.

  5. Take a break: It's important to take breaks during your study sessions. Go for a walk around campus or take a quick nap to recharge your batteries. The Nitobe Memorial Garden is a beautiful and peaceful spot to escape to. Or, if you need a little more excitement, head over to the Pit or the Nest for some social interaction.

At Sense Eyewear, we understand the importance of having the right eyewear to help you succeed during finals season. Our expert team can help you find the perfect pair of glasses to fit your face shape, personal style, and vision needs. With our wide range of frames and lenses, we have something for everyone.

So, whether you're hitting the books in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, fueling up at Blue Chip Cafe, or taking a break in the Nitobe Memorial Garden, remember that Sense Eyewear is here to help you succeed.
