Racing In Style

Danica Patrick wearing sunglassesReading Glasses Shopper is located in the “racing capital of the world” — Indianapolis, Indiana!

Each year, our city holds the world-famous Indianapolis 500, as well as the Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

For the races, drivers gear up in suits, helmets, shoes and glasses! Contacts are not the best choice because air coming through the helmet can dry them out — and the G-force when going around corners can actually make the lenses move around the eyes!

And as soon as the race comes to an end,  the helmets come off and sunglasses are on!

The Indy 500 is Sunday, May 29. Get ready for race day by wearing a new pair of reading sunglasses. Perfect for a day at the races, our sun readers will help you keep your eyes on the track and jot down stats. We have some sunglass reader styles that are inspired by our favorite racers.
