Is this font too small? Are you squinting to see the text on your screen? You are not alone. According to the Wall Street Journal, more than 90 percent of people suffer from “computer vision syndrome,” which is contributing to the popularity of reading glasses.
If you stare at a computer for more than three hours a day, your eyes may be strained and in need of reading eyeglasses, which can help reduce eye fatigue and blurred vision. Although your first image may be of a little bespectacled granny with a beaded necklace hanging from the hinges of her frames, you’ll be surprised to know that two-thirds of people over the age of 18 now wear some form of corrective eyewear, including reading glasses!
Any frame can be fitted for reading lenses, which are typically made of polycarbonate material. It is important to opt for anti-scratch and anti-glare treatments – the latter is especially helpful when you are trying to read near a lamp. For a trendy look, try Prodesign eyewear, which has plenty of dark-rim acetate frames for men and women that look smart and chic. The frames pictured above are ProDesign 1657 eyeglasses in color 3032.
If you once had great vision, but working on a computer has slowly damaged your eyesight, glasses may not be the most exciting thing to you. Luckily, there are rimless eyeglasses that help you see perfectly without significantly changing your look. Lindberg eyewear is one of the most popular brands for rimless frames, carefully handmaking each pair for optimum fit and comfort.
Don’t want to wear your reading glasses all day? It can be a hassle to keep taking them on and off, forgetting where you last put them. La LOOP offers a great accessory to keep your eyewear nearby. Forget that image of the granny; these necklaces have a large hoop at the end, where you can slide the temple in so it can hang neatly. When you’re wearing the glasses, the necklace looks fashionable and a nice part of your outfit. La LOOP has everything from the pearl style above to coated nylon and strands of beads and charms.
