Eyeglasses are one of those amazing things that we don’t really give much thought to - we simply put them on our faces each day and enjoy being able to see clearly. But when you really stop to think about it, do you realize just how many individual pieces go into one singular set of frames?

For some, a pair of glasses is simply a fashion statement that they use to complete their daily outfits, while others view them as a true tool that helps them to get their daily tasks done. When it comes to reading glasses specifically, they tend to take on the latter function, as deciphering small print can be nearly impossible without these trusty tools. However, instead of taking a utilitarian mindset toward them, what if you considered the various types of frame styles available?

Reading is a skill that all of us eventually learn, but we never really stop to think about just how big of a deal it is during the first years of a child’s life.

The world of fashion has a long and interesting past, but beyond just pants and jackets, accessories too have a lineage that’s worth exploring. When fashion and function collide, that’s where reading glasses fall into the mix, with a background that’s far more interesting than anyone ever thought possible.
