We’re supposed to read the fine print, right? But what if we can’t?
Here’s the fine print: all reading glasses are not created equal. The specs from various dollar stores are cheap, so no worries when you misplace them. But they fall apart, lack balance and often are uncomfortable. So I usually spend a little more and buy a three-pack from Costco. But they aren’t as stylish as I would like.
Enter Readers.com, a seller of quality, fashionable eyewear. They are light, with spring temples that offer a good fit. And there are lots of super cute styles to choose from in both readers and sunglasses, the better for beach reading. There are 14 power options, including quite a few you won’t find at the dollar store.
The folks from Readers.com sent me two pairs to try out. I am wearing a pair from the new garden collection as I write, with a muted floral design called Bouquet in a matte plastic finish. They are comfy, well-fitting and don’t slide down my nose.
