Professorial...AND Still Able to Read

For only $65 a pop, you can help save your parents' (or your) arms from menu-reading stretching strain. It's a serious affliction!  The fantastic site Eyebobs has the best collection of reading specs I've ever seen.  {1} Acid Trip {2} Wide Awake {3} TV {4} Gone Public {5} Mr. Digler {6} Scored  {7} S-Old {8} WASP {9} Old Money Sun Reader  {10} Total Wit

And does one sacrifice aesthetics for fashion? I'm all for heavy frames until they are actually on my face! Though everyone thinks I'm oh so much smarter when I confess my nearsightedness.

I've been amazed at the reading glasses my father in law has been able to find at a similar price point that look just fine. I'll pass on this link to him - thanks!

These are great! Sadly, my dad loses them all the time, so I buy them for him in bulk on Canal Street.

I first came across Eyebobs a couple of years ago while shopping at NM in Washington DC. Bought my first pair ("Fish Bowl") then and there (am actually wearing them as I write this), and have purchased several pairs of "Scored" online. Company was started by a woman who was confronted by a market condition that sorely needed correction: reading glasses choice was between dull and cheap ($15 a pair at Duane Reade) or $500 from optomotrist (sp?). Am a big fan and have converted numerous friends to the joys of Eyebob!

These are fabulous! I'm finally reaching that age where I need reading glasses...it is hard to admit...but these make it seem less painful ;)

I buy eyebobs and take them to my optician and have my prescription put in them...so they're not just reading glasses...they're very cool frames that look 4x the money.
