Add single vision or progressive reader sunglasses lenses to any frame
Basic single-tint reading sunglasses
After selecting your frame and entering your prescription, the next step is choosing the sun-blocking lens tint for your reading sunglasses. You can choose a basic tint for no extra cost, making it a great-value choice. Four different shades of tint can be added to your reader sunglasses, and each shade has its advantages, so take the time to consider which suits your needs best.
Mirror-tinted reader sunglasses
Mirror-tinted reading sunglasses aren’t just stylish; a mirrored tint also blocks around 10-60% more sunlight than standard tinted lenses. This makes them great for especially bright conditions, say, the beach, where reading is practically a summer-vacation staple. Mirrored lenses also provide a little extra privacy, allowing you to completely focus on your favorite novel.
Gradient-tinted reading sunglasses
Gradient-tinted reader sunglasses feature a sun-blocking tint that gradually becomes darker as you move up the lens. This type of tint is a fantastic fit for reading sunglasses because the lower, and in this case, clearer, part of the lens is the area we naturally look through when reading. A gradient tint still blocks light effectively by providing a darker tint at the top where most sunlight hits the lens.
Reading sunglasses are sunglasses with prescription lenses that correct near vision. Glasses with these types of lenses are often called reading glasses. The addition of a light-blocking lens tint makes them perfect for outdoor reading.
