An Overview On Reading Glasses

If you find yourself squinting to read the morning newspaper, you may simply need a pair of reading glasses. Fortunately, this type of glasses has come a long way over the years. It is now possible to get a quality pair of reading glasses at a reasonable price.

As you browse the available models, determine whether you’re interested in a fun and colorful design, or one that is a bit more elegant. There are models that have patterns along the arms, including some that resemble stained glass. Reading glasses with a slim and simple semi-rimless look would be best for use in the office or in a business meeting.

Always check the construction of the reading glasses. Some are made of stainless steel, while others are plastic. Plastic isn’t a negative, as long as its quality made. For example, the TruVision Readers Reading Glasses, 4-Pair uses sure-flex comfort spring arms and dura-tight screws for glasses that won’t fall apart after just a few uses.

Review the fit of the reading glasses. You not only want comfort around the bridge of your nose, but the arms also need to hold tight against your temples, so the glasses don’t slide off. The company will list the frame size in its product description as well.

Finally, consider any extras that may be important to you. Some reading glasses come with soft protective cases, while others have hard ones that protect against drops. The model may even come with a micro-fiber cleaning cloth. There are also reading glasses that fold in half for easy portability.

DWYM Fun Fact

One of the first types of glasses invented were created simply for magnification purposes. They used quartz to make the lenses and a variety of construction materials to make the frames. These included everything from leather to bone. It wasn’t until the 1700s that the glasses designed to correct vision became popular.

Many individuals simply need a pair of reading glasses, and not prescription strength eyeglasses. In fact, each year a total of 50 million reading glasses are purchased in the United States. A great number of these are tossed yearly, but recycling programs do exist for reading glasses, so they don’t need to end up in your local landfill.

The Reading Glasses Buying Guide

  • Your reading glasses will need to be cleaned often. Before you begin, wash and dry your hands. Use lukewarm water and one drip of a liquid dish soap to wash the lenses and frames. Rinse completely clean with water and towel dry with a lint-free cloth.
  • It’s recommended that you avoid using chemical glass cleaners on the lenses of your reading glasses. They can actually harm the lenses, especially if your lenses have a protective coating that prevents scratches.
  • Always check the terms of any satisfaction guarantee or product warranty. Some last just 90 days and others are provisional.
  • Before you can compare the price of reading glasses, you must first divide the cost of the glasses by the number of glasses in each set. Once you do this, you’ll see that the Gaoye Spring Hinge Reading Glasses, 5-Pack and the Kerecsen Ladies Reading Glasses, 5-Pair have the lowest cost per set of glasses. The Success Eyewear Folding Reading Glasses, 2-Pair is more moderately priced, while the TruVision Readers Reading Glasses, 4-Pair has a higher cost. This is because the TruVision glasses offer extra features.
