In a world filled with questions and uncertainty, there is one objective truth: you can never have too many pairs of reading glasses. One for the car, one for the desk, a jumble in the nightstand. One pair tucked neatly away into each purse.
And what’s wrong with that? Absolutely nothing. The only “wrong” is when you frantically dig around for your glasses so you can read the menu at a “cool” new restaurant that insists on incredibly dim lighting. But just because readers are a necessity doesn’t mean they have to be plain or boring. There’s an embarrassment of riches when it comes to cute readers online, and we’ve found them all.
There’s something for everyone in our round-up, with great frames from favorites like Eyebobs and The Bookclub. There are a couple new faces too. Look Optic is the “Warby Parker of reading glasses”, started by a few former Oliver Peoples employees, who are also concerned with the effects of blue light. There’s a little something for everyone, here. You want a dependable, every day, goes with everything option? We got that. Do you want a little bit more flair, something a little bit special? Oh, we definitely have that. Give the Mackenzie-Child frames with their iconic checkered pattern and tortoiseshell arms a try.
