Yes, that’s right – there are reading glasses designed specifically for applying your makeup with precision! While our eyes may need some help to see as clearly as they once could, our makeup routine shouldn’t have to suffer. The mornings of squinting out of one eye while applying eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara to the other are over!

For days when you’re traveling and can’t lug your magnified vanity mirror with you, or for those of you who don’t have the counter space for another mirror, these makeup readers will change the way you apply make up…for good.     

The Carrie Makeup Reader is designed to allow you to wear your readers with the proper magnification* while simultaneously applying makeup in the mirror. Simply switch the swiveling lens when you need to do the other eye! The lens is fully magnified in powers up to +3.00.

*Determining Your Power for a Makeup Reader

The standard reading distance is 12-18 inches. With this in mind, you should consider how close you typically stand to the mirror when applying your makeup. The further away you stand from the mirror the lower your power should be (using your reading power as a baseline), and the closer you stand to the mirror the higher your power should be. Never purchased reading glasses before? No problem! You can easily find your power by using our PowerFinder.

If you find you are having problems with close-up vision but you still need to see in the distance, bifocals might just be the answer. Bifocals are lenses that have two focal points. At Readers.com our bifocals are flat tops, which means they are divided by a thin horizontal line with no power on the top and your reading power on the bottom.  We know that if you’re purchasing a pair of bifocals for the first time it can be difficult finding the answers you’re looking for. To assist you in finding the right pair of bifocals that fit your optical needs we’ve provided answers to frequently asked questions, along with information on our Readers.com bifocals.

Are bifocals still considered bifocals if there is not a power on the top?

Yes–although the top of the bifocal is clear/plano, it is represented as a power of +0.00. This section helps you focus out in the distance while doing activities such as driving, watching tv, cooking, etc. On the bottom of the bifocal you will have your reading power, which helps you see up close while doing activities such as looking at a map, reading a book, sewing, and following a recipe.

What are bifocal sunglasses?

Our bifocal sunglasses are great for anything outdoors such as hiking, golfing, or driving on those really sunny days. Like our regular bifocals, these glasses have no power at the top, and have your reading power in the bottom. The up close power helps with seeing your speedometer, writing on a scorecard, reading a compass, etc. If you are an avid fisher you will love how our polarized bifocal sunglasses allow you to see out into the water and also look down to bait your line, or remove the prized fish you just caught.  

As an added bonus, all of our bifocal sunglasses are UVA/UVB protected!

What are customizable bifocals?

Customizable bifocals  are for people who have different powers in each eye, but the top of the lens still can not have power added.  If you have a need for customizable bifocals we highly encourage you to check with your doctor before ordering, as these glasses are non-returnable, non-refundable due to being custom made at our local lab.

Do we carry no-line bifocals?

No–to be accurate, no-line bifocals do not exist. There are lenses called progressives, which we do not carry, and are commonly confused as no-line bifocals. These are different because they have multiple focal points and not just two.

 

Is it possible to order power in the top?

Since our glasses are pre-manufactured and can not be changed, it is not possible to order power in the top of your bifocals.

Didn’t see your question answered above? We’d love to assist you! Just ask your question in the comments and we’ll make sure you receive an answer.

Reading glasses serve many purposes. They are great for fine print, browsing the web, cooking new recipes, and completing daily tasks. However, when it comes to applying makeup, many women would say they rely on magnified vanity mirrors versus reading glasses. This is understandable since standard reading glasses can get in the way.  While vanity mirrors are a great option for applying makeup at home, what about when you’re traveling or at the office? We suggest opting for a pair of makeup reading glasses. Yes, you read that right, glasses specifically designed for applying makeup!

 

How to use makeup readers

When shopping for makeup reading glasses you will come across a few different designs. A common design for a pair of makeup readers is a frame with a swiveling lens allowing you to see clearly while you apply your makeup. When using this design simply swivel the lens to the eye you are not working on while you apply makeup to the opposite eye.  Another design is a set of frames with flip-down lenses. This design allows you to flip down the lens that is in front of the eye you are working on so you can see perfectly out of the opposite eye until you are ready to switch eyes. Like traditional reading glasses, makeup readers are designed to fit your lifestyle and eliminate struggle. So as you begin your search for the perfect pair of makeup readers it is important to find frames that you are comfortable using.

In 2015, we partnered with Timmy Global Health, a nonprofit organization that provides consistent, quality medical care to communities in Latin America while empowering individuals to solve world health challenges. Together, we’re dedicated to making a global impact and improving lives. Now, you can help, too. We’re excited to announce our newest reader, The Timmy!

The Timmy Reader

In order to make a larger impact, we decided it was time to create a reader specifically for Timmy Global Health. For every pair of The Timmy we sell, we’ll donate an additional pair to the communities Timmy serves. This plastic pair of reading glasses is available in black or tortoise, a variety of powers, and features comfortable spring hinges. With a classic shape, The Timmy looks great on both men and women! If you’re looking for an easy way to make a difference, consider purchasing a pair of newest readers.

Why Do We Donate Reading Glasses?

Access to eyewear is often times limited in the communities Timmy serves. While we often think of reading glasses in relationship to reading, there are other ways a pair of readers can help individuals live their lives. For example, if a woman makes her living by weaving, she may struggle to make ends meet when her eyesight begins to deteriorate. A pair of readers allows her to continue her work as a craftsperson and support her family. Donating reading glasses to these communities can make a huge difference in their everyday lives!

Most of us are familiar with reading glasses. We use our readers daily for everything from crossword puzzles to crafting, often keeping multiple pairs scattered throughout the house. What many people don’t know, though, is that there are more options than just bifocals and fully-magnified reading glasses. From computer readers to makeup readers, read on to learn more about the different types of reading glasses that you didn’t know existed!

1. Flexible Reading Glasses

Rough on your readers? We suggest trying a pair of flexible reading glasses! This type of frame is made from a strong, thin material that bends and twists without breaking. Flexible readers are also durable and lightweight, which makes them a great option for people those who are constantly on-the-go.

flexible reading glasses2. Reading Sunglasses

Sun readers are just like your regular pair of reading glasses except they have tinted lenses to protect your eyes from harsh UV rays. Like sunglasses, sun readers are available in a wide variety of tints. We even carry polarized options! If you enjoy reading outside or are planning your next tropical vacation, we suggest picking up a pair today.

reading sunglasses3. Computer Reading Glasses

According to an article by CNN, Americans spend over 10 hours a day in front of screens. This massive amount of time staring at your iPhone, tablet, etc., can take a toll on your eyes. Computer readers help relieve eye strain by filtering out harmful blue light that is emitted from electronic screens. You can learn more about the benefits of computer readers here.

computer reading glasses4. Folding Reading Glasses

Hauling around readers with a big, bulky case can be incredibly annoying. If you’re looking for convenience, try a pair of folding readers. These collapsible reading glasses fold perfectly into a small case that won’t clutter your purse when you’re on the move.

folding reading glasses5. High Power Reading Glasses

If your eyes need a little more help than they used to, drugstore readers just won’t cut it. As you age, your eyesight will inevitably get worse. You even might start to realize that your eyesight changes more quickly than it used to. Don’t worry, you just need readers with a stronger power. While high power reading glasses can be difficult to find at the store, there are a ton of options online.

high power reading glasses6. Makeup Reading Glasses

Makeup readers? You better believe it. These nifty readers are specifically designed to help apply makeup. Work on one eye, then simply slide the magnification over to the other eye when you’re ready. For tips on how to wear makeup with glasses, check out our guide here.

So it’s time; you begin to have trouble reading the fine print in front of you. We’ve been there; coming to the realization that it’s time to wear reading glasses can be a troubling feeling at first. Don’t worry; we are here to help you see how easy it can be.

Our teams’ goal is to provide you with the roadmap to your new path, to prevent you from making any wrong turns along the way. We hope to offer information about reading glasses in general, with some small pieces of advice that we found helpful. We also understand that everyone is different. Therefore we offer different tips tailored to match different lifestyles. Please, allow us to help you bring your life into focus.

Each section provides an assortment of advice that helps you incorporate readers into your life:

-What Is My Lens Power

-Which Frame Works Best For Me

-Making My Readers Last

What Is My Lens Power:

The first step we recommend taking when you begin to notice a cloud of fog is obscuring the text in front of you is to see an eye doctor. While online tests and other methods can be helpful in determining what power you need, they will be even more accurate if you have some basis of what your true eye prescription is. An eye doctor will provide you with the precise information you need so you can make the best judgment on where to start. Be aware that the glasses sold at the doctors can be pricier than other options. You can find specialized readers online for the same quality, but lower price.

As you age, your eyes age with you. We recommend doing an online exam to determine if you need to move up or change powers. Remember, if you decide to take the test – always refer to the lower power, meaning if you can see +2.5 and +2.25 clearly, use the +2.25 power

Be aware that wearing readers does not weaken or strengthen your eyes in the long run. Choosing to not wear readers can only cause temporary headaches or eyestrain. If you are experiencing these symptoms while wearing readers, it might be due to an incorrect power or fit, be sure to consult your doctor and the company you bought from to ensure you have the right fit for your eyes.

Lastly, if you are in need of a powerful strength and are worried that your eyes will be blown up through the lens magnification, consider wearing aspheric lenses. Using the same technology as cameras, aspheric lenses weigh less and reduce distortion without compromising optical quality.

Which Frame Works Best For Me:

While there are numerous different frames and styles, we recommend starting off with something simple such as either full frames or half frames.

Full Frames 

  • Full frame black readers Entire lens is magnified.
  • Typically worn only for a short period.
  • Most common pair with the widest variety of colors, designs, and shapes.

Pro: Provide a full clear vision when working on detailed tasks or single focused projects. 

Con: Frequently having to take glasses on and off when switching between near and far-sighted views.

Half Frames

  • Half Frame Semi-Rimless Bronze Reading GlassesEnhance nearsighted vision while giving you an unobstructed view of the distance.
  • Lightweight and easy to store.
  • Common styles include the pocket readers and foldable readers.

Pro: Provides ease as you shift focus between two different tasks.

Con: Some of the smaller designs tend to be more fragile and delicate than other styles.  

Once you become accustomed to your readers and want to try another type of style, see if bifocals are something that works for you.  

Bifocals

  • Full Frame Bifocals black and brownClear lens with a magnified portion on the bottom that focuses on nearsighted items.
  • Common to wear for long periods throughout the day.
  • Popular styles include sun readers which allow you to use your readers outdoors and still have protection from the sun.

Pro: A solution for those who find it tiresome having to take their glasses on and off throughout the day.

Con: Can be difficult adjusting to the different magnifications for those wearing readers for the first time.

Something that I am sure you will learn in the coming months is the frustration of misplacing your readers. As you settle into bed, turn your lamp on, and open up your summer book, you realize you cannot remember where you last placed your readers (unfortunately, our eyesight isn’t the only thing that fades as we grow older). If you are not prepared this will happen to you and trust me, no one wants to get out of bed to search for a pair of glasses. When you purchase your first pair of readers, be sure to buy more than one pair. You’ll thank us later.

Computer Readers

Silver Computer ReadersIf your job entails looking at a computer screen for a multitude of hours, then be sure to check out computer readers. These glasses are designed to protect your eyes from the glare of the screen to prevent eye strain. The lens also has a modified magnification to adjust for the typical distance between your eyes and the computer. Check out this post to learn more about the benefits of computer readers.

Take a second and go over your daily routine. Think about when and where you’d need readers throughout the day and prepare ahead. For those of you who like to read the morning paper, keep a pair of half frames in a kitchen drawer, while having another pair at work or in your room. Blue Readers Case Check out all the different cases and accessories that you can store your readers in so you don’t have to search around each time you need to read.

Finding the Right Frames for Your Face

If you need help finding a pair that matches your face, check out our face shape guide. Once you know what power and frame you want, go to Readers.com where you can find a wide selection of options and styles.

To find the best fit, make sure that you choose the correct size for your face. No matter how much you like a certain style, if the frame is too narrow you will be disappointed with how they look and feel on your face! Use our printable ruler to learn more about which readers will fit you best.

If you are still stumped, call our customer happiness team, and they will help you find the perfect pair that matches not only your facial texture but your lifestyle in general.

Making My Readers Last

Now I am sure you are wise enough to understand basic concepts behind taking care of something as fragile as glasses, the goal in this section is not to repeat common rules, but to provide you with handy tips to ensure that the quality glasses remains the same as the day you bought them.

  • Blue Microfiber ClothMicrofiber cloths are your new best friend. We strongly suggest having a couple of different ones placed in your car, workspace, kitchen, and bedroom.
  • When dirt, sand, or dust get on your readers, run the lenses under water, add a touch of dish soap and then use your fingers to wipe away any remnants.
  • Do not use paper towels, tissues, or other household rags to clean or dry your glasses. The texture can cause scratches on the lenses. Use the microfiber cloths that you now have handy all over the house!
  • To avoid your glasses from stretching, be sure to use both hands when putting your glasses. Never put your glasses on top of your head for that same reason.
  • Taking your glasses on and off is even more frustrating when you have to search for a safe place to set them down. One way to get around this is to wear a cord or chain attached to the frames. With a wide selection, find one that matches your style and taste.

For more detailed specific information, learn more on our maintenance and cleaning page.

In the construction of this piece, our team kept two main points in mind:

  1. To provide information and tips that can be viewed and shared by new members of the readers community.
  2. To understand that everyone is different in how they go about their daily lives in regards to reading glasses.

We hope that you find guidance in this piece and that you pass this information to those around you because eyesight is a pivotal aspect of our lives that we often take for granted. It is not until that ability starts to fade that we realize the challenges we must now face each day.

If you have any personal stories, advice, or tips you would like to share, please feel free add comments or suggestions so we can continue to update our information so that no runs into trouble as they bring their life back into focus.
