Reading Glasses Frame Guide


Bifocal Glasses

Bifocal Readers

A type of eyeglasses that corrects both near and farsighted vision. The top portion of the lens is designed for long-distance viewing (like watching television) and the bottom portion is designed for close-up viewing (like reading a book). If you’re looking for a fix-all solution to your vision needs, bifocals may be the perfect readers for you.

Computer Glasses

Computer Glasses

Computer glasses help optimize your eyesight when viewing your computer screen. If you spend long hours looking at a computer, chances are your eyes are bearing some of the negative side effects. Wearing computer glasses can help reduce headaches, blurred vision, eyestrain, and other symptoms of computer vision syndrome. (Learn more about their benefits here!) Computer glasses are available in anti-glare, tinted, bifocal, no-line, multi-view, and full lens styles.




Rimless Readers

Rimless glasses are light and minimal. These readers will provide the magnification you need, while leaving your line of vision unobstructed by frames. If you want a barely-there feel in your glasses, check out our variety of rimless styles.

Flexible Readers

Flexible Readers

These durable readers are made of a tough but pliable plastic, allowing them to withstand more bending and twisting (and sitting on!) than normal readers. Flexible reading glasses are great for those who show their frames a little more love.



Optical Quality Readers

Optical Quality Frames

All of our optical quality readers are designed to be worn like everyday readers. However, if you have specific prescription needs, the existing lenses are made to easily pop out of the frame and replace with custom lenses from your eye doctor. If you opt to replace with a special prescription, make sure to always have an eyeglass professional assist with switching out your lenses.
