3 Most Popular Frame Shapes for Men’s Reading Glasses
Square Men’s Readers
Frames with square lenses are well suited for reading glasses. On the style side, this shape is sophisticated and fits many face shapes. From a practical perspective, they provide good visual coverage and comfort. Square frames are a smart option for men’s reading glasses.
Stylish Round Men’s Reading Glasses
Round eyeglass frames are a more classic version of stylish men’s reading glasses. These frames conjure up images of comfy armchairs and leather-bound books, making them perfect as readers. This style suits people with square faces particularly well.
Half-Frame Semi-Rimless Styles
Semi-rimless glasses, such as browline style frames, are another classically vintage frame shape perfect for men’s readers. The strong top-line of these frames balances out your features and fits a variety of face shapes.
Lens Options for Your Men’s Reading Glasses
Bifocal and Progressive Lenses
Bifocal prescription lenses are designed for people who require vision correction for both nearby and up close. Many people need this type of lens as they get older, especially for reading. Both bifocal and progressive lenses fix this type of problem, but progressive prescriptions gradually change up and down the lens, leading to a smoother transition.
Blue Light Blocking Lenses
If you use your men’s readers for looking at screens as well as books, think about blue light blocking lenses. This type of lens blocks out blue light, which can make it difficult to sleep and even result in long-term damage to our eyes. Consider adding this option to your reader’s frame, but note that it isn’t available with bifocal lenses.
Adaptive Transitions® Lenses
Choosing transitions lenses for your eyeglasses makes it easy to read both indoors and outdoors. This feature lets your lenses dynamically adapt to the surrounding light level, becoming darker in bright light. Taking your favorite book to the beach? Transitions lenses will help you read in comfort.
Lightweight frames weigh 15 grams or lighter without the lenses.
