Unisex pocket readers, like Thin Optics reading glasses, Nooz, & Clic are all super compact, full function glasses. Each discretely slips into your pocket or wallet (or attaches to your phone) without the bulky case.

I’ve been using Thin Optics and Nooz for about a year now. They generate a lot of conversation among friends; when’s the last time someone asked to try your readers simply because they’re cool? 🙂

They are also quite comfortable when reading for extended periods of time. For example, I use Thin Optics Front Page Computer glasses to reduce blue light eye strain when I’m online or reading my iPad.

With Summer around the corner we’ve also included Thin Optic’s compact Sunglasses. Same high quality, eye catching design and convenient portability!

Small enough to keep these sunglasses close by whenever needed.
