Let’s explore conversation worthy readers that fit your lifestyle
First, a few helpful terms…
Presbyopia (the culprit)
The term might be unfamiliar but, if your over 40 years old and you hold your menu further away from your face than you used to, you’ve arrived. In addition to the wisdom gained with aging, the ability to see things clearly, up close, heads in the opposite direction. Although the wisdom clearly outweighs the inconvenience, good readers are more of a staple item nowadays.
Diopter – find the right strength reading glasses
When shopping for readers, strength is measured in units called diopters. Ranging from 1.00 (least strength) on up to the strongest, at 4.00 (in .25 increments) most adults fall somewhere on this spectrum. Many of the manufacturers we’re recommending today provide convenient diopter tests on their site, so you can pick out the right strength reading glasses that suit you. If you have eyes that are of unequal vision strength or have more specific vision needs, a trip to the eye doctor would be best, prior to selecting your readers.
During the day, the blue wavelengths found in sunlight help wake us up, boost our mood, set our circadian rhythm for sleep and are considered beneficial to our well being. Computers, smart phones & Ipads also emit blue light and, as many of us tend to linger for significant stretches of time on these devices, blue light starts to have the opposite effect, especially where our eyes are concerned.

I’ve been a faithful user of Nooz optics readers for a couple years. These unisex readers come encased, offering multiple colors & styles.
