3 Options for New Reading Glasses

Reading glasses are pretty much a given after a certain age. Indeed, it is thought that most people begin needing some form of help with reading from the age of 40. As this is a natural progression for our eyes, you may be wondering what the options are when it comes to new reading glasses.

If you’ve already been prescribed reading glasses, you’ve probably got a pair from your local opticians, but this isn’t the only option when it comes to finding stylish, practical, and trendy reading glasses. If you’re looking for something a bit different, take a look below to find out all of the places you can find interesting, quirky, and stylish reading glasses frames now.

Your opticians

This is the first and most obvious place to get new reading glasses. When you go in for your eye test, you’ll probably be offered new frames which will be fitted with your updated prescription. This is by far one of the easiest options as everything is done in one place, but you may find that you can’t find frames that suit you and you want something a little different.

Many opticians offer a range of frames from the most basic and cheapest option to designer pairs, but sometimes there aren’t enough options for you to find the pair that is right for you. Since you’ll be wearing your glasses often, you want something you’re comfortable in. Below are some other options if you find that your opticians don’t offer the glasses you want.

High Street shops

In many high street outlets now, you can find a range of reading glasses. These are often offered in standard prescription styles and cannot be fitted with your unique prescription. This means they’re most suited to people with simple, weak prescriptions who do not need alterations.

You may also find that high street stores offer a relatively limited range of frames. While they are often cheaper than your local opticians, they’re also usually lower in quality and may not offer much range of style. This is the best option if you don’t use your glasses much, or if you just need a cheap extra pair for your handbag.

Shop online

Online specialists such as Just-glasses.co.uk offer speed, convenience and a wide array of options to customers. From reading glasses to sun readers, sunglasses to clip-ons, they have it all. They offer a huge range of styles at affordable prices and have been specialising in reading glasses for more than ten years. The company saw a niche in the market for affordable but comfortable and stylish glasses and have successfully filled this gap ever since.

Online retailers have popped up in abundance in recent years, helping people to find a much more interesting range of reading glasses than those you can find in your local opticians, and for this reason, a lot of people opt to shop online for their frames these days.

Just Glasses is one of the best options for reading glasses online today. With an enormous range, including options for sunglasses and other sun wear, you can kit yourself out for all seasons online with them – and all at incredibly affordable prices.

Final thoughts

If you’re bored with the frames in your local opticians, there are other options when it comes to your new reading glasses. Don’t feel that you have to choose from the pairs your eye doctor offers and spend some time finding the frames that are right for you.

Reading glasses are likely to be worn a lot of the time, which means that you want them to be comfortable, practical, and suitable for your personal style.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
