When the summer is just around the corner and the days are filled with more hours of sunshine, it can sometimes be difficult if you need to wear glasses as you are constantly having to change between your reading glasses and your sunglasses. However there is a very simple solution that will enable you to both protect your eyes from the sun and read your favourite book or magazine at the same time – reading sunglasses, also known as sun readers.
Sun readers come in a wide variety of different styles and designs suitable for both men and women and can be worn all year round in the sunshine, not just during the summer months. These ready to wear reading sunglasses follow the same principle as off the shelf reading glasses – so they can be used by anyone who knows what strength of reading glasses they require. If they don’t know what strength they need they can always look online at an eye chart – usually available from their reading glasses retailer.
Reading sun glasses come with a wide range of different frames to suit all tastes – the most popular varieties include tortoiseshell, black, brown and multi-coloured designs – all of which are available in a number of different strengths from +1.00 to +3.50 in half steps – depending upon the requirements of the individual and their eyesight.
The main benefit of having sun readers is that you do not need to change your glasses whilst outside in the sunlight and trying to read something. Another benefit is that you only need to take one pair of glasses out and about with you or away on holiday with you as you can easily read a magazine or book whilst sitting on the beach.
By purchasing off the shelf reading sunglasses you can save yourself plenty of money as these items can be readily purchased from around £10 per pair, making it possible for most wearers of reading glasses to get themselves more than on pair – or perhaps one pair of reading glasses and one pair of sun readers so they are equipped for every occasion.
