The Importance of Reading Glasses

Nobody likes squinting over teeny tiny font, whether it's in print or on screen! That's why reading glasses are an absolute must for anyone who finds themselves struggling to read the "fine print" that's splayed across books, magazines and newspapers, tablets and computers, and work documents. In fact, a lot of people have this issue - 28.7 million adults in the United States wear reading glasses, which is nearly 12 percent of the adult population, according to a recent report from The Vision Council. So don't continue on the path of blurry reading. We cannot stress enough the importance of reading glasses, as well as sun readers if you enjoy reading outdoors. So pick up some of your own, and don't hesitate to buy multiple pairs to switch up your look and to stash in all of your favorite reading spots!
