Stylish Readers That Coordinate with Every Look

Stylish Readers That Coordinate with Every Look

I must own more than a dozen pairs of eyeglasses. Each with a slightly different prescription lens. I also wear contact lenses when possible and that means different glasses to wear with them.

The older I get the worse my vision gets. In my 40’s I began needing readers to help me see labels, directions or anything smaller than bold print.

My eyesight got progressively worse until I finally landed in multifocal lenses. From then on my glasses were always on my nose, yet I still used readers when I read for any length of time. The reading area in multifocal lenses is just too small!

I tested out multiple versions of contact lenses and finally found a combination that gives me fairly good vision. Where contacts do suffer is with close detail and reading, the exact thing I needed readers for in the first place. So when Readers.com asked me to share their glasses with you, it was a no-brainer.

I always wear readers when working on my computer, which is frequent! They give me perfect vision to catch my typing mistakes.

When I read outside, Readers.com has me covered there too! These Sun Readers offer 100% UV protection and also keep me from squinting.

They’re available in lots color combinations, lightweight with spring hinges for durability and very comfy to wear.

Readers.com also carry a wonderful selection of folding reading glasses that pop into the smallest handbags! These little cuties are just what I need for help reading menus.

Readers.com carries everything from polarized bifocal reading sunglasses to Pearl reading glass chains. Their great low prices allow you to own multiple styles to coordinate with different looks in your wardrobe. I’ve paid more than this for cheaters at my pharmacy, and they looked hideous!

Do you still need readers?

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Thank you to Readers.com for collaborating on this post. They gifted me the glasses; all opinions are my own.

    Yes! Unfortunately that’s been the hardest thing about ageing for me. Losing my 20/20 eyesight! In my 40’s I needed to get readers. I have pairs of readers lost all over the house. I need bowls and bowls of them in every room.

    I have two pair of folding readers I use when I’m in the field photographing. I love them! I found them at a drug store and haven’t seen them anywhere else. I guard those with my life! I’m so glad you shared this store so I have another place to purchase folding readers. I’ll poke around their site for my stylish readers too. 🙂

      Your experience with readers sounds like mine, Deborah. I even perch a pair on a kitchen statue so I can see the fine print on ingredient labels!

    You might ask your ophthalmologist for advice about reading in the sun, even with the most protective sunglasses. I am convinced that my old habit of reading at the beach and poolside at home contributed to my wet mascular degeneration.

      Oh no Sharon! I’m sorry that happened to you. I always sit under an umbrella or very large sunhat, wearing protective lenses so I hope that’s enough. I will ask her on my next visit.

    Hi, Jennifer. I am interested in some of the current books you are enjoying reading. Care to share?

      Right now I am reading 2 books on retirement, one on blogging and one on Coco Chanel. I don’t read nearly as much as I’d like to so need to make myself do it more often:)

    I don’t generally except when wearing contacts. To be honest I gave up contacts for that reason. However I had an eye test last week and realised I could do with them for computer work as I keep pulling the screen towards me. Thanks for sharing.

      My vision is a moving target too, Annemarie. Aging has some fun surprises for us:)

    Jennifer, I thank you for the encouragement for us older ladies! I would love a session regarding very busty ladies, and how to look what I call normal. TRy 38 H and size 10 pants. You are simply the best! K

      Thank you, Kathleen. I am not busty but do have a few tips I could share. V and deeper scoop neck necklines are your friend. Pockets on the front of blouses or shirts are your enemy as are turtlenecks and tight crew necks. They enhance the uni-boob look. Necklaces need to NOT stop over your bustline and large earrings can be a great tool. I’ll put a post together with more ideas soon! Thanks for asking.

    I find taking a picture, or even just enlarging and not snapping
    With my phone is great for small print.

      That would be really helpful for the microscopic ingredient lists on many things:) Thanks for the suggestion, Pat!

    I read this with envy! In my 50’s one eye is nearsighted and the other farsighted. Add in an astigmatism. No one can get a prescription right for anything close- up.

    I read a lot more on a tablet or screen now so I can enlarge. I have a hand held magnifying glass.

    Also a new iPhone feature is a godsend! Triple click the home button and you get an adjustable magnifier!

    Has anyone found any other solutions?

      I didn’t know about the magnifier in our phone!! Genious Marian, thanks for sharing. I have astigmatism too! A magnifying glass is sometimes the only thing that helps me read microscopic print. They need to print things larger.
