Reading glasses are never cool. Ever.

What do your glasses say about you? It’s a simple question with, at least on the surface, a simple answer. They either say “Hey, I’m cool.” or, provide people with an indication of your age, or just highlight the fact you simply cannot see very well. And oftentimes all three. But look beyond the four-eyed facade, behind the thick rims that sit between your eyes and the world, and you can see they’re actually communicating a lot more than you’d first think.… Read more

How to Avoid Steamed-up Glasses

You’re riding your motorbike when suddenly your glasses start to fog. You’re cooking dinner when suddenly your glasses start to fog. You’re stepping out of your car, skiing in France, walking down the freezer aisle at Sainsbury’s, when suddenly, you guessed it, your glasses start to fog. Just like picking up the occasional scratch and losing the odd pair, foggy lenses seems an unavoidable part of being a glasses wearer. And other than avoiding all these activities altogether, the best you can typically do… Read more

How to age gracefully (with Phil)

There comes a point in everyone’s life when they realise the inevitable truth of ageing. Even though it’s happening from the very moment we’re born, it can be decades until we have to face the fact — most of us pushing it away, for as long as possible. For Phillip Schofield, that time came at just sixteen years of age, when his hair started to turn grey. That was the start of Phillips’s rocky relationship with ageing. He’s since spoken out about… Read more

Dan Reinstein has Laser Eye Surgery to correct his reading vision

Although he’s dedicated his career to improving the vision of others, Professor Dan Reinstein has had perfect eyesight his entire life. No glasses, no contacts, no surgery — just clear, faultless vision that allowed him to work as an expert surgeon by day and play the sax and enjoy life with his family by night. But if there was one person who knew more than any that this ideal wouldn’t last forever, it’s Professor Reinstein. With presbyopia affecting everyone at some point… Read more

Blurry, hazy & foggy. Not a hangover, but your vision in the morning

Dragging your body as if someone snuck in during the night and pumped it full of lead, you stumble to the bathroom and turn on the light. You stop, groaning and wincing from its harsh glow, and make your way to the seat — being careful to avoid any reflective surfaces (not that you could see anyway). Just like the famous sculpture ‘The Thinker’, you prepare to sit and contemplate some of life’s biggest questions. So, who am I? And where am I?… Read more

How to make your glasses cool — throw them in the bin

When a fresh piece of clothing or accessory is suddenly labelled ‘cool’ by the fashion police, it’s usually swiftly picked up by alternative, fringe groups before just as quickly being thrown out in disgust when it hits the mainstream. But what about when it happens the other way around — when a product that’s been around for decades, even centuries, is suddenly crowned cool and adopted by niche fashion circles? The universe doesn’t implode. But you do get an unusual situation in… Read more

Reading glasses are never cool

In the early 90’s, Doc Martins and flannel shirts hit the mainstream fashion scene. Soon after, babydoll dresses appeared in the wardrobes of most young girls. Fast forward twenty years later, and, as the notion goes, they all came back into style. There’s a lot of debate about how long this cycle of nostalgia runs, but twenty years is a good rule of thumb. Some people say it’s more like forty years. Others say everything is simultaneously in and out of style all the time.… Read more

Where do you keep your reading glasses?

At around a million times faster than NASA’s 1960’s computer, a smartphone is an incredibly sophisticated piece of tech. With it, you can do things like pay for groceries, translate text, and stay in touch with your loved ones. Without it, well, we would barely achieve anything. And as such an indispensable part of our life that brings us endless pleasure (thank you Candy Crush), we have no trouble carting it around with us everywhere we go. Reading glasses, on the other hand, do… Read more

Reading glasses are a crap solution

“I don’t need glasses! The text is just really small…” — My mum, every time she can’t read something My mum has presbyopia and can’t read or see anything in the vicinity of her face without her tacky supermarket ready readers. But don’t tell her that; she’s convinced the problem is not with her but the world — as if books and bank statements are produced in smaller and smaller print ever year. It’s understandable — I mean who wants to visit the… Read more

Rolling back the years: How to treat presbyopia

We accept ageing as a fact — an unavoidable process that governs all existence and affects us whether we like it or not. And in many ways, it is. Ageing is one part of the biological puzzle that continues to evade even the brightest minds and the most cutting edge technology. However, all is not lost; many experts believe an effective solution to slowing down and even reversing ageing is on the horizon. The only thing we have to do is wait.… Read more
