Foldable Reading Glasses? Who would have thought it....
Foldable Reading Glasses
Foldable reading glasses? That's what I thought, when one day my adult son came to me and showed me his new pair of glasses.
To my surprise, he started bending the earpieces, and then after folding them into short lengths, then proceeded to fold the nose piece in half! What will they come up with next?
After I played with the glasses for a minute or two (before he grabbed them back), I realized that these were perfect not only for myself (yes, I do rely on reading glasses occasionally), but it could be a huge benefit for seniors.
Being able to carry the folded glasses in a shirt or sweater pocket is a much better option than having to worry about breaking glasses, hanging them around your neck, or constantly misplacing them.
Foldable reading glasses come in a variety of styles and are easy to fold at the temples and at the bridge of the nose.
They slide into a pocket without worrying about bending frames, because the hinges are spring-loaded. Many come in flexible styles too, greatly reducing the chance of bending, twisting, or breaking them. Not only can folding reading glasses save a lot of money on replacements, but enhance convenience.
To be honest, I went out and bought two pairs for myself - one for home and one for work. Now I don't have to wear my reading glasses hanging around my neck.
