In the days of old, generations of parents and grandparents didn’t have the luxury of staring at computer screens, laptop monitors or tablet faces all day as part of their business and leisure livelihoods. However, in 2015, the benefactors of the Information Age are discovering that such technological vehicles demand more from their eyes at times than what was available decades ago in terms of reading glasses. And it’s those same technological advances that are offering solutions for computer-weary eyes – or peepers that require a variety of vision needs from one pair of lenses.
Advanced reading glasses such as SightLine Proximity Readers are giving people what they demand in a 21st century pair of reading glasses – along with the ability to remain fashionable and younger-looking. Unlike years ago, when makers of reading glasses didn’t need to take into account a person’s desire to be able to read from a printed page to a computer screen and next look across the room to the person speaking to them all in one fell swoop – the multi-focal SightLine Proximity Readers accomplish all of those actions, without necessitating a change of glasses.
According to Google, nearly 50,000 people turn to the search engine each month seeking reading glasses. Nearly 15,000 more seek out computer glasses via the Internet. Several thousands look for bi-focal and multi-focal glasses online. Apparently those shoppers are turning to the web, trying to find eyewear solutions beyond the cheap bi-focal reading glasses found in drug and grocery stores, which can only help them see objects less than two feet away. With SightLine Proximity Readers, the conundrum of needing an all-in-one pair of reading glasses that are stylish and all the same advanced enough to tackle issues such as computer eye fatigue is solved.
The technical specifications of the reading glasses detail the differences between regular reading glasses and those manufactured by the Chicago-based Continental Optical – a 58-year-old firm that specializes in providing ophthalmic eyeglass frames to optometrists and ophthalmologists around the nation. Those details include charts and diagrams, which display the lineless yet impressive power of the three-focal lens area in comparison to traditional reading glasses.
That difference means a larger viewing area for both the wearer’s proximity and near vision – along with increased comfort due to the improved design. Plus, there’s no longer the need for users to look like their grandmothers and grandfathers by pulling their reading glasses down upon their noses in order to adapt their field of vision to view differing objects.
With the company’s return policy, a page that harkens back to the heyday of the thriving Marshall Fields store in the beloved City of Big Shoulders, the love of their customers and home-base is evident.
As consumers and companies grow deeper into the age of technology, it will be interesting to see how certain firms are using the advances in technology to improve upon products that have been a mainstay in customers’ lives for years.
