ThinOptics Readers + Universal Pod Case 5

The number of times I’ve been out with parents and wanted to show them a quick photo of something on my phone, it then turns into a mad search through bags and pockets to find their glasses, the right glasses, by which point our coffee is cold and my phone battery has died.

With the ThinOptics there is no confusion as to where your glasses are thanks to the universal pod case, this attaches via the included non-residue adhesive strip to the back of a phone case, alternatively they can be slipped into a wallet, purse or pocket if preferred. These are the world’s thinnest readers making them easy to tuck away anywhere and leave the big bulky glasses case at home, the pod comes in either black and white to compliment your phone/tablet case or even your laptop. This case is super thin but that doesn’t mean it is fragile, it is tough enough to withstand the rough and tumble of daily life, ensuring the glasses are well protected. The Readers are equally durable, made from a shatterproof, thermo-injection moulded, optical-grade polycarbonate, the bridge uses a shape-memory metal called Nitinol, which is 10x more elastic than spring steel and encased in medical-grade silicone tubing.

The frames come in Jet Black, Azure Blue, Ruby Red, Amethyst Purple, Espresso Brown and Crystal Clear, with strengths varying from +1.0. +1.5, +2.0 and +2.5. Readers, unlike reading glasses, don’t have temples to pop behind your ears, so how do they stay on, well when you first pop them on simply apply a bit of gentle pressure and the soft, grip sensitive nose pads will hold the readers in place. Obviously if you decide to go running or dancing in them then yes, they will probably fall off but why on earth are you doing that, in normal reading conditions you can look up and down, side to side without them going anywhere. The ThinOptics Readers have been designed to fit the vast majority of noses, it might take a few goes to find if they need to be positioned higher up or down the nose for a comfortable grip, for those that can’t find a suitable way to wear them the company offers a 30-day, money-back-fit guarantee. The visual quality is just as you would expect from regular reading glasses, this is because they use the same lens material regularly used in high-end prescription glasses and are made by one of the most advanced optical lens manufacturers in the world. The ThinOptics Readers are really handy little readers, you will always know where they are and their super thin design makes them highly portable. RRP $19.95
