Frequently Asked Questions

Are ThinOptics™ reading glasses comfortable?

ThinOptics reading glasses are extremely comfortable to wear because they weigh less than a nickel and they put only gentle pressure on the sides of the nose.

Are ThinOptics™ reading glasses durable?

ThinOptics reading glasses are made from components that are shatterproof and frequently used in safety and ballistic (bulletproof) eyewear.

The bridge is made from Nitinol (10x more elastic than spring steel), encased in medical-grade silicone tubing and anchored to a polycarbonate frame.

Will they break?

ThinOptics are designed to withstand even the toughest situations! However, as with any product, excessive use or misuse of your product will increase the chances for breakage.

How good are they?

The optical grade polycarbonate used in ThinOptics™ reading glasses is the same material that is regularly found in high end Prescription Eyeglasses. Our lenses are made by one of the largest and most advanced optical lens manufacturers in the world.

You will want to choose the option that most closely matches your needs. However, since reading glasses are optimized for short-distance reading usage, you will automatically adjust the reading distance between your eyes and the object you are reading.

Will ThinOptics reading glasses fit on my nose?

ThinOptics has designed their reading glasses in both full-frame and pince-nez designs, thereby solving the question of fit!

The original readers can be positioned anywhere on your nose. Higher up-fits in front of the eyes, while for smaller or flatter bridges, they can be positioned to fit right above the nostrils. Our full-frame options can fit most and have arms to hold securely.

We have tested hundreds of different combinations of nose pad angles and widths to arrive at the optimal design for the majority of noses.
