Product Spotlight: Headline Readers
The Original World’s Thinnest Readers
Reading glasses are not new. For as long as people have been aging past 40, the need for vision correction has existed.
But everything changed in 2015, when ThinOptics introduced a pair of reading glasses that dramatically altered the corrective eyewear industry for the better.
My Friend Had Forgotten His Reading Glasses...
It all started with a blurry text message on a long bike ride – the concept of developing a pair of high quality reading glasses that were slim enough to fit on the back of every cell phone was born from a real life pain point.
Conventional reading glasses are fragile and their cases are bulky – not something that you’d bring with you on a 20 mile bike ride. There are so many more real life scenarios where a pair of reading glasses is necessary but unavailable.
How Do These Readers Fit & Feel?Our Headline Readers are feather light on your face, comfortably gripping your nose with gentle pressure whether they’re sitting high on the bridge of your nose or down on the tip. But don’t be fooled by their small stature & imperceptible clutch – these readers are mighty!
- Made from shatterproof, thermo-injection molded, optical-grade polycarbonate, the frames of these remarkable reading glasses are stylish & virtually indestructible.
- The bridge of the readers is made from a shape-memory metal called Nitinol – able to return to its original shape no matter which way it’s bent. This revolutionary bridge is ten times more elastic than spring steel and encased in medical-grade silicone tubing.
- The Headline Readers’ lenses are made by one of the most advanced optical lens manufacturers in the world, using the same lens material regularly used in high-end prescription readers & reading glasses.
Indeed, we’ve kept it quite simple with these reading glasses. Because at the end of the day, what good is a great pair of reading glasses if they’re not with you when you need them?
Why Don’t They Have Arms?You may have noticed that these reading glasses are simply lenses & a bridge. This style of spectacle is called pince-nez (which comes from the French for “nose pinch”), which means that they are supported without earpieces, by pinching the bridge of the nose. These reading glasses are optimized for easy access and quick use, like reading text messages, menus, and other brief documents.
Another benefit of their instant use is how discreet they are. So if you think you might need your first pair of reading glasses, but are reluctant to commit to the idea, the Headline Readers are a great entry point. So what are you waiting for?
