Reading Glasses for Fashion and Function

It will happen to most of us baby boomers?one day we are easily reading a story in the newspaper and the next day we can't see the words clearly. Don't despair, the large selection of reading glasses available on the market will give you exactly what you need in a style that you want. What type of visual assistance do you require? Do you want a magnifying glass for the occasional help with reading a few words, or hot colored eyeglass frames that are made into glasses for reading? The internet is one resource where you can find all of the trendy or traditional styles, choices, colors and prices of magnifying glasses, reading glasses, contacts, color contacts and they are all just a click away. Purchasing glasses for reading or frames has never been easier. If you feel you need a prescription from your physician, make a selection and in a few days they will be arriving at your door.

Are you worried about people seeing you wear reading glasses? Are you afraid they will make you appear older than you are? Never fear because the large selection of frames on the market will make you look fabulous. There is every style imaginable and you will easily find one that fits your face beautifully. They are so easy to find that you can keep them everywhere. We have reading glasses in every car, and almost in every room. Keep a pair in your purse or briefcase because you never know when you will be forced to read something and you find yourself without your reading glasses. They also are notorious for getting lost. Reasonable pricing allows you to purchase more than one pair of glasses so why not treat them as accessories to match your clothing. Frames in colors are really popular now. You can buy something outrageous in a hot color or print and if you don't like it, it didn't cost you a fortune. I wear glasses everyday and I never tire of getting more colors. If you are in public and you are still self-conscious about people seeing you wear reading glasses, bring out a cool lorgnette that can be worn around the neck. They look like a necklace but they are really a magnifying glass. Find one that has a good quality optical lens. If they have bubbles, waves or other defects, they will affect your vision also. They make a fashion statement and don't have anything to do with looking older. You can also find reading glasses that are tinted with UV protection. If you have a more complicated problem, such as astigmatism, you might want to get your reading glasses from your eye care professional. The glasses you find in a store are a one size fits all style and you might want something that is custom for your particular eye problems.

When it comes to reading a book, newspaper, computer screen or doing close hand work, you need to take care of the eyes. Eyestrain is an all too common problem for most of us so don't hesitate to visit your eye care professional if you are experiencing any problems reading more than the fine print.
