Corrective eyeglasses were first invented in Italy in the late 1200s out of the necessity to read and copy manuscripts. This initial investment saw a major upgrade in 1730 when modern glasses were created using temple arms to rest on top of the ears. However, reading glasses have not had much of an upgrade in the following 300 years. Until now that is. Readerest has incorporated science and technology with its latest line of reading glasses with blue light protection.
- BLUE LIGHT-BLOCKING LENSES. Whether it’s your computer at work, tv at home, or even your phone, most of us spend the majority of the day looking at screens. This can create eye strain resulting in sore eyes and headaches by the end of the day. Protect your eyes from the harsh blue light of our daily devices.
- UV PROTECTION + ANTI-REFLECTIVE. Overexposure to ultraviolet light is thought to be a cause of cataracts, retinal damage, and other eye problems. That’s why we treat our lenses with UV protection. Additionally, an anti-reflective treatment eliminates glares from reflecting off of the inside of the lenses and shining in your eye. This will provide better vision for night driving and more comfortable vision for reading and computer use. The outer portion of the lenses is not anti-reflective
- SCRATCH RESISTANT. Our lenses are treated front and back with a clear, scratch-resistant coating creating a much harder surface that is more resistant to scratching. There are a ton of opportunities for glasses to be scratched from dropping your glasses on the floor to carrying them in your purse or glove box. This treatment will reduce the chances of scratches appearing on your lenses.
- SPRING HINGES + LIGHTWEIGHT. All glasses are equipped with 100% spring-loaded hinges. This ensures that they will not bend over time on larger faces. Combined with our lightweight frames, these glasses are comfortable with a capital C! Gone are the days of heavy frames adding pressure to your temples and the bridge of your nose.
- STYLISH. This style looks great on both men and women. The perfect pair for a fun youthful look.
