Stylish and Fashionable Reading Glasses for Any Woman

It's a fact of life that as we age, our eyesight changes.  Most people start to have difficulty seeing clearly at close distances.  Luckily, an easy fix is a pair of stylish and pretty reading glasses.  

I've rounded up a collection of fashionable eyewear at every price point that will make any woman feel confident and attractive.

Reading glasses don't have to be frumpy or boring.  They can be stylish, fashionable, and flattering  |

I remember going to the eye doctor at age 39.  I've been wearing contact lenses to correct my vision for almost 20 years now.  But, at that visit, the young doctor said to me, "You're approaching the age where you may begin to need reading glasses."  I guffawed at her audacity!  I wasn't even 40 yet and she was treating me like an old lady!  However, she was right (or she jinxed me), and I was ready for them by my next annual exam.

At first, I was disappointed.  To me, wearing reading glasses made me feel old.  I was only 40.  I felt young.  But then I realized that reading glasses are now trendy and fashionable.  So I jumped on the bandwagon and am so happy I did.  Gone is the straining to see text on my phone and gone are the dull headaches I would experience after trying to read small print.

Reading glasses can be found at many different retailers, from high-end boutiques to drugstores.  In the past, reading glasses were boring or gaudy, but now it is easy to find a pair that is flattering and fashionable.

Recently, I stopped in at the Loft to look for clothes, when I noticed they had a rack of sunglasses, as well as reading glasses.  Cute reading glasses.  Stylish reading glasses.  Tortoiseshell reading glasses (my favorite!).  Other pretty reading glasses.  And at affordable prices.  I picked up a pair of the Cateye Reading Glasses in the color Pink Fizz in the strength I need and feel pretty and confident in them every day.

Many other designers and fashion retailers carry reading glasses, such as Anthropologie, Kate Spade New York, and Tiffany and Company.  Scroll through to find the perfect pair for you!
