Helps 10,000 Boomers See Clearly

80 million Baby Boomers in America suffer presbyopia, a non-preventable vision condition affecting people over 40. To their rescue came which has provided its customers with 10,000 high quality stylish reading glasses over 6 months.

Presbyopia is a condition in which the elasticity of the eye naturally decreases causing close up vision to be blurred, often requiring the use of reading glasses.

“Most Baby Boomers don’t wish to wear the bland styles of reading glasses their parents wore. They are style and quality conscious,” said Levit. “For Boomers, reading glasses are an opportunity to express their individual personalities and moods.” Many Baby Boomers purchase multiple pairs at the same time for different occasions, outfits, and even to have extra pairs handy in every room of the house.

Levit continued, “ advises customers to consider quality first. Aspheric lenses, for example, render less visual distortion than traditional lenses. Lenses manufactured from polycarbonate deliver still clearer vision.”

Frame construction is important too. A quality plastic frame made of laminated acetate or Zyl is durable and will maintain its color. Metal frames should be made from substances such as nickel-free Monel which is hypoallergenic. Those are what is referred to as “optical quality frames.”

“Reading glasses can be stylish and fun and are no longer a symbol of aging. They’re an essential addition to every Baby Boomer’s wardrobe,” concluded Levit.
