Is It Time for a Reading Glasses Makeover?

Are you one of those people who only take out your readers to look at a menu or to sign a credit card receipt? If you said yes, you aren’t alone. Still in 2015, many of us are embarrassed to take out our reading glasses. Whether it be because of not wanting to show their age or because of cosmetic reasons and feeling your glasses just don’t look good on you? Either way, this is a very common occurrence. But it sure doesn’t have to be.

In fact, reading glasses can be used as a fashion statement, not just for vision. Readers aren’t bulky and for lack of other words ugly and nerdy like they used to be. It is just important to find the right pair for the right face. Skin tone and face shape can play important factors as well.

Today, there are many that are extremely stylish and will want to be kept on even when you don’t need them. Here are a few examples:

  • Just because you are in your mid 50s or 60s doesn’t have to make you feel like a senior. If you have a petite face a square type frame may look ideal. One great option is the Optx 20/20 Harmony frames. They are lightweight and extremely durable. The version in Ruthenium/Blue will for sure get a ton of compliments.
  • Some of us need a pair of frames that are a good color contrast with our skin tone.  If this is the case, you can’t go wrong with a pair of Ozone or Nico frames. They both offer dark color options, which present the wearer with a modern European type look.

Everyone’s tastes are different as well as their skin tone and eye color. That is what makes each and everyone of us unique. Glasses shouldn’t have to look embarrassing though. There are so many styles, that there is sure to be a frame that will work best for you. Why not give yourself a “reading glasses” makeover!
