Readers.com™ is excited to participate in the inaugural Reading Glasses Day with Foster Grant®! On this day, we feel that it is important to stress both the importance of eye health awareness and highlight the ways in which we give back to help spread happiness beyond our four walls, inspiring you to do so, as well.
Eye Health Awareness
Many conditions can affect one’s vision, including presbyopia, macular degeneration, myopia, cataracts, dry eye, astigmatism, and even digital eye strain. It is important that you are aware of these conditions so that you can receive the proper treatment if necessary. While some conditions such as cataracts, may require surgery, others are less severe. Digital eye strain and presbyopia can both be remedied by the correct reading glasses. We pride ourselves in offering a wide variety of over 700 readers, with hard to find powers ranging from +1.00 to +7.00*.
Through our partnership with Timmy Global Health, we donate readers to people across the world without access to proper eyewear. Without reading glasses, a woman in Guatemala may lose the ability to sew, and therefore lose her profession, as her eyesight worsens and she cannot see small details up close. This condition is called presbyopia, also known as farsightedness, and is easily correctable with proper reading glasses. Thus, we are dedicated to supporting those without access to medical care by donating readers that can help them regain their livelihoods. In 2018, we donated over 6,000 pairs of glasses to help change lives. Additionally, we have committed to donate $3 to Timmy Global Health for every pair of The Timmy sold.** Join us today by purchasing The Timmy, and help us make a difference in the lives of others!

Ready-to-wear non-prescription glasses are not intended to replace prescribed corrective lenses or examinations by an eye care professional. Continuous eye check-ups are necessary to determine your health status and vision needs. If you have any questions, please consult your eye care professional.
**From September 1, 2020, through August 31, 2021, Readers.com will donate $3 to Timmy Global Health for every pair of The Timmy reader purchased on Readers.com® in the United States (excluding AL, HI IL, SC, MA, and MS) to help support their global healthcare commitment.
