Reading glasses can be fun. You don't have to look like Albert Einstein or one of those out of date versions of Marian Librarian just because you need reading glasses. Have some fun with them. Reading glasses are just another fashion accessory, of course, there's also the plus that with your reading glasses you'll be able to - you guessed, it - read.
Reading glasses are still available at the corner pharmacy. You can go in and pick out a pair of brown or black magnifying glasses for your face. Ugh! But if you really want to try for the totally cool versions, shop around. There's a ton of really attractive reading glasses to be found. Many online retailers, high end gift and fashion stores, and eye care professionals stock great reading glasses.
For women there are a variety of very classy, feminine styles of reading glasses. Look for high quality zyl frames that come in an assortment of shapes and colors. There are so many different styles to choose from you will no doubt need more than just one. From rhinestone to hand painted embellishments unique reading glasses options for women are definitely out there waiting to be found.
Men also have a wide variety of readers available just for them. There are the ultra cool thick frames reminiscent of Clark Kent and yesteryear. There are high quality metal frames cut in masculine shapes to offset male features. Many reading glass manufacturers have even started manufacturing a separate line of readers for those individuals that have a hard time finding readers that are large enough. With names like Big Head Bob and Phat Head they definitely offer a generous fit.
There are many styles of reading glasses equally suited for men and women alike. Classic tortoise and black frames in circular or rectangular shapes are truly unisex. There are also great compact reading glasses to drop easily in to a purse or pocket or foldable reading glasses that break down in to an even more compact space.
You can even find tinted reading glasses. Tints vary in strength from those that are strictly for fashion to those that provide protection from bright sunlight. Sun reading glasses are great for reading outside. Bifocal sun reading glasses are great as they allow you the reading or near vision correction you require while still allowing you uncompromised distance vision.
You can find a number of great accessories for your reading glasses such as eyeglass cases, designer reading glass chains and rubber and ribbon cords, magnifying lenses that fit in to your wallet and cleaning cloths for your reading glasses.
You can have fun with reading glasses and express your own personal sense of style!
