But don’t worry: whether you are looking for extravagant, modern or round glasses, for men or women, we will help you to find a pair of reading glasses that reflects and boosts your personality!
Which reading glasses suit me?
The shape of your face plays an important role in finding the right spectacle frame. A square face, for instance, is nicely complemented by a round frame. This shape provides a vibrant look and a softer facial expression. A round face, on the other hand, works well with angular glasses. Another factor you need to consider, is your hair color. Dark hair pairs well with brown frames, while blond hair pairs better with gray, burgundy or pastel colors. But in the end, your own style and taste are decisive. If you choose the glasses that make you feel good, they will make you shine!

Frequently asked questions
Do I need reading glasses?
You will definitely notice, when you need reading glasses. The most obvious sign is that you find it more difficult to read. For example, you need to keep a book further away from yourself to read properly, or you need extra lights to read. Also physical complaints during or after reading often is a sign that it’s time for some readers. For example a headache or a burning feeling in your eyes. You might not need readers when you have a headache once after reading, but if this happens often and you are over 40 years old, it’s time for some reading glasses!
Why do I need reading glasses?
Once you are older, the elasticity of the eye lens slowly decreases. Your eyes are having a harder time to see things that are within 6 meters. So to see things properly up close, the lens needs to change shape. We call this accommodation. The accommodation capacity decreases over the years: from, on average, 14 diopters at the age of 5 (the capacity of the lens to change shape) to 2 diopters when you are at the age of 50. Luckily, you can correct this with reading glasses.
Is the power of reading glasses minus or plus?
Reading glasses have plus (or positive) lenses that compensate the inability of the eye to change shape. So in general, reading glasses are always plus powered. For people that with farsightedness and nearsightedness, glasses can be negative powered. But the reading glasses are always less negative than normal glasses. When you have trouble reading and looking further, we advice you to to get in touch with an optometrist.
What are the readers trends of 2020?
This year, many trends come together that were popular in previous years. Round glasses in neutral colors are very popular, but also transparent frames are trendy in 2020. A new trend this year is that you fit your reading glasses to your outfit or mood. Since readers are relatively cheap, you’ll see this more and more often. For example, wear blue readers with a stylish blue suit or choose some shiny readers in the color Fresh Coral on a sunny day!
How much do reading glasses cost?
There are reading glasses in different price ranges. The price depends on the design, the quality and the brand. At large retailers, you can buy reading glasses for a few Euros, but the quality is generally lower. At the optometrist, you can buy branded, high quality frames. The optometrist does make a lot of costs which are translated in the price. Think about the employees, the rent of the stores and advertising on TV. We deliver reading glasses of the same quality as the optometrist, but since we only sell our product online, we do not have the high overhead costs. This way, we are able to sell high quality reading glasses with trendy designs for a fixed and low price of € 24,95. We offer the best of both worlds!
