Reading Sunglasses

Sometimes, all a bookworm wants out of their summer is to read a good book in full sunlight. To protect your eyes from strain and UV damage, choose sunglass readers. At EyeBuyDirect, any of our sunglass options are available in a reading prescription, so you can keep up on your reading list no matter where you are.

Why Use Reading Sunglasses?

Sunglasses with readers’ prescriptions are the best way to minimize the negative effects of long-term reading in the sun. With reading sunglasses, not only do you reduce the strain on your eyes caused by age-related presbyopia and farsightedness, but you also minimize the damage to your eyes caused by the sun’s harmful UV rays. Both reading glasses and sunglasses also prevent you from squinting, which can cause premature wrinkles. On top of these benefits, sunglass readers can add a new level of style to your look.

Styling Options for Reader Sunglasses

Reading sunglasses combine the functionality and style of sunglasses and reading glasses, so you can style them however you want! If you want more fashion-forward options, consider the following style choices:

  • Reading Sunglasses for Men: Modern men tend toward sunglasses and reading glasses with wood textures, neon hues, or even transparent plastic frames in ombre colors. Regarding structure, men lean toward frames with double bridges and keyhole bridges, while vintage enthusiasts love browline and horn-rimmed frames.
  • Reading Sunglasses for Women: Women’s trends in sunglasses have been leaning toward wilder patterns and colors, including animal patterns, pastels, and bold solids. Metallics and floral patterns are also popular. As for structure, women are choosing bold frames and detailed rims with jeweled details.
