O Jack how we love you and all of your sunglasses :)
At times we wish the newspaper would come with a zoom button or that we had a magnifying glass to carefully examine the detail of a printed work. Everyday we get older; unfortunately, it’s a fact of life. We try to escape by using hair dye or anti-aging cream, but there’s one place that you can’t stop the aging: your eyes! Your eyes age. Luckily, there’re ways to deal. So here’s just one solution for the print that seems to just get smaller and smaller: reading glasses!
Readers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes from full frame to half frame. They can be easily stowed and hidden away. Eyesave’s got a bunch that are fashionable and sleek.
These, above, are from Clic Readers. They come in all sorts of colors; the color featured is Blue Steel. With its patented magnetic closure, these frames can separate at the nose bridge making them perfect for anyone who thinks they might lose their reading glasses. The magnetic closure allows you to keep them around your neck so they won’t get lost when you take them off. Plus magnets are fun! If you are dealing with young children who just like to grab at things, you can be sure they will grab your reading glasses. So, these would be perfect in case they get knocked off your face.
These from Able Vision are the BPR36 Tube Gunmetal which come with a tube case. These frames are sleek, lightweight, and ultra-thin. They come in a variety of colors and are great if you are an on-the-go person. They can fit right in your pocket or purse without taking up too much space. These frames specifically are perfect for that day at the office or anytime that requires a more professional look.
These are only just a few you can get. There’re lots of different shapes and some that are even smaller! Just check them out at Eyesave.com!

Safety is always important, especially when it comes to your eyes. Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Mark Kotsay knows exactly what that means. He always wears sunglasses during games to protect his eyes from the sun’s harmful rays and also to keep the glare away when looking straight up at the sun trying to catch a baseball. More specifically, Kotsay has blue eyes making him more susceptible to glare. The reduced sensitivity to contrast for those who have lighter colored eyes makes it harder for them to differentiate things in bright light. Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton found that his light colored eyes affects his batting average when he plays in day games in contrast to when he plays in night games.
Sports sunglasses have so many uses because they protect your eyes and provide the maximum glare reduction. They come in many different designs so you don’t have to keep the more traditional sport wrap-around style. They can be made of plastic or metal; it is all up to you to decide what kind of sport style sunglasses you want.
If you do play baseball or any outdoor sport, it may be best to go with a wrap style or something that is sure to stay put during activity.
This is the NYX Golf Sunglasses-Arrow. These frames are made from lightweight nylon with Bi-Radical lenses to reduce the bubble effect that is usually seen in wrap style sunglasses.
Above is the Smith Optics Parallel. This semi-rimless frame features non-slip nose and temple pads for complete comfort and stability when it comes to active-wear.
This is the Nike Skylon Ace Swift, a semi-rimless frame with rubber nose pads that ventilate making this a perfect style to wear outdoors. The lenses are scratch/impact-resistant which ensures great durability and longevity in terms of wear.
Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about those who need reading glasses!!! You too can read outdoors on the beach or out camping, wherever and whenever you please!
These are pretty sweet, right? The bi-focal lenses allow for reading or not (!) - wear them as sunglasses and the bifocals won’t interfere! The wrap frame is perfect for those looking for a traditional sport style frame.
Besides a wrap style frame, sport sunglasses can also come in more fashionable styles with the same protection and glare protection. Like these:
The 2747/S from Persol is the perfect combination of sport and fashion. The polarized lenses feature glare protection while simultaneously providing 100% UVA/UVB protection.
