Where are my glasses?

People of a certain age (over 40) know that reading glasses are a necessity of day-to-day living because the eyes are definitely not what they used to be. If you’ve ever been in a dark restaurant and been given a menu with more than 3 items on it and not had reading glasses handy, then you know the sense of frustration at not being able to read the font that seems to grow smaller every year. Put the menu up to a candle and risk a bonfire and the ire of the server not to mention the fire department.

The problem seems to be that reading glasses are never where you need them. We have reading glasses all over our home but we both seem to always be looking for a pair. To alleviate this problem, we’ve bought reading glasses (3 pairs in each package) from Costco and put them by the phones, on night stands, in desk drawers but tempting as it is, we haven’t succumbed to the eyeglass necklace.

So, what’s a middle-aged person to do?  Buy ThinOPTICS:  the “stick anywhere….go everywhere” reading glasses. Small, thin, bendable, and lightweight, ThinOPTIC reading glasses are stored in a universal small pod (that comes in a variety of colors) and easily fit in a small pocketbook, purse, wallet, or to the back of a mobile phone (except for an Otter case).

With a grip technology, ThinOPTICS fit everyone. All you have to do is choose the frame color:  black, red, clear, blue, purple, or brown, and the magnification strength:  +1.00, +1.50, +2.00, or +2.50.

ThinOPTICS are designed to bend without breaking and can be purchased directly from the manufacturer: A universal pod (that sticks to a phone or slides into a wallet, pocket or purse) and two pairs of ThinOPTICS cost $19.95 plus shipping. 

See the website for options that include key chain cases, phone cases, and replacement cases.
