Welcome to a journey where your old glasses find a fresh purpose, going beyond just being tossed away.
Embrace this practical guide designed to give your old eyewear a meaningful second life. Here, we explore three avenues for your old glasses:
Imagine this scenario: you’ve recently acquired an updated pair of reading glasses. Thanks to your new prescription, the text leaps off the page, crisp and bold! However, these stronger reading glasses demand that your laptop or computer screen be uncomfortably close. Is the prescription at fault? Not at all. Reading glasses employ what’s known as a ‘Single Vision’ lens design. Naturally, as your prescription magnifies, there comes a point where a single pair of glasses can no longer cater to both near and intermediate distances.
The solution? Revisit your previous pair of reading glasses. Their older, ‘weaker’ prescription might suit those intermediate distances. If your overall prescription has somewhat shifted, new lenses can be crafted for that older frame—fulfilling the need perfectly for ideal PC or laptop placement!
You solve a critical vision need and breathe new life into your beloved frames.
