 If you’re anything like us, keeping track of your reading glasses tends to be a never-ending task. When you need them upstairs, they’re always downstairs. Sitting on the couch? You left them in the kitchen. And then you throw in a pair sunglasses to the equation and you have to keep track of two pairs of glasses? Forget it. 

We’re here to make reading glasses shopping easier, but if we can also make your everyday life easier, we’re even more excited. That’s why we’re happy to show you two new styles of 2-in-1 reading glasses, made with you in mind. 

Magnetic Sun Readers

These styles are just like a regular pair of readers, but with a twist! In a snap, you can go from regular reader to sun reader thanks to the magnetic frame front, which allows the separate front piece with tinted lenses to attach to the frame. You can choose from several styles including fully magnified or bifocal, polarized, mirrored, or standard sun reader lenses.

 

Photochromic Readers

If you need readers to drive or enjoy the outdoors, we recommend a pair of our photochromic readers! When indoors, the fully magnified lenses on these styles are clear. Once you step outside and expose them to UV light, they gradually darken to tinted lenses. Readers → Sun Readers, it’s just that easy!

If you find you are having problems with close-up vision but your distance vision is unhindered, bifocal reading glasses might just be the answer!  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.

What are bifocal reading glasses?

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 upper portion of the lens and the reading power of your choosing on the bottom.

The unmagnified upper section helps you focus out in the distance while doing activities such as driving, watching tv, cooking, etc. On the bottom of the bifocal lens you will select 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.

Shop Bifocal Reading Glasses ›

 

Doesn’t “bifocal” mean a lens has two magnifications in it?

It does! Although the top of the bifocal lens is clear (also known as “plano”), it is represented as a power of +0.00, giving the lens two powers and focal points: the unmagnified upper lens and the lower bifocal portion.

 

What are bifocal sunglasses?

Like our regular bifocal readers, these sunglasses are unmagnified at the top, and have your reading power in the bottom portion of the lens. The bifocal 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 reading sunglasses are UVA/UVB protected!

Shop Women’s Bifocal Reading Sunglasses   Shop Men’s Bifocal Reading Sunglasses ›

 

What are customizable bifocals?

Customizable bifocals are perfect 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 eye doctor to confirm your reading power before ordering, as these glasses are custom-made at our local lab and are non-returnable and non-refundable.

Shop Custom Reading Glasses ›

 

Do you carry no-line or executive 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.

Executive bifocals are lenses that have the bifocal power across the entire width of the bottom section of the lens, rather than the half moon (“flat top”) bifocals our readers have.

 

Is it possible to order power in the top portion of the lens?

Since our glasses are pre-manufactured and can not be changed, it is not possible to order bifocals with a different magnification in the top and bottom of the lens.

 

Still have questions?

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.

Imagine being severely visually impaired by the time you turn 50 years old. Unfortunately, this is a harsh reality for people who live in developing countries. This week we will recognize World Sight Day, an annual day of bringing awareness to blindness and vision impairment.

As American citizens, we are often unaware of just how much of a luxury accessible vision care is. The truth is, although visual impairment is common in developing countries, 80 percent of vision problems are avoidable, meaning readily treatable and/or preventable. At Readers.com, healthy eyesight is something we are passionate about, and we want to make you as informed as possible when making decisions related to your vision, as well as knowing the concerns facing those in developing countries.

The International Association for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) brings us the following stats:

– 9 out of 10 people who are blind live in a developing country
– An estimated 19 million children around the world are visually impaired
– Approximately 285 million people worldwide live with low vision and blindness
– Of these, 39 million people are blind and 246 million have moderate or severe visual impairment
– 90% of blind people live in low-income countries
– Restorations of sight, and blindness prevention strategies are among the most cost-effective interventions in health care
– The number of people blind from infectious causes has majorly reduced in the past 20 years
– About 65% of all people who are visually impaired are aged 50 and older
– Increasing elderly populations in many countries mean that more people will be at risk of age-related visual impairment

TheTimmy-2

We of course know the inconvenience of blurry eyesight, and recognize the difference a good pair of readers can make when it comes to proper vision. However, for many in developing countries, blurry eyesight is not merely an inconvenience, but it can get in the way of their livelihood as craftspeople. It is no question that a good pair of readers can make a difference, helping these people to sustain their income and support their families. For this reason, Readers.com has partnered with the charitable non-profit, Timmy Global Health. For every pair of The Timmy that we sell, we vow to donate an additional pair of reading glasses to one of the many communities Timmy Global Health serves in Latin America.

You can help us make a global impact with The Timmy, and learn more about our partnership here.

Computer, phone, and television screens have become an integral part of everyday living. We look to screens to tell us the weather, update us on the lives of our loved ones, read books and newspapers, and to look up a new recipe for dinner. It’s safe to say that turning to our screens has become second nature. With all of this screen time, it is only natural that our eyes are bound to suffer. Digital Eye Strain appears in the form of eye fatigue, headaches, dry eyes, and difficulty sleeping, but it can be prevented with the use of computer glasses.

Here is everything you need to know about what computer glasses are, the impact of blue light, how to choose the right computer reader power, and much more:

Now that you know you should be using computer glasses, it’s time to start shopping for the perfect pair for your vision needs. If you still have questions about computer glasses, we encourage you to comment below.
