I got these pretty reading glasses online. From DiscountGlasses.com.
They have a large number of frames to choose from and lots of different colors. I looked at several hundred before I decided on this pair of Private Eyes Thixie Readers.
They also have prescription glasses and sunglasses, so next time my husband needs new glasses we will likely get them online. They are cheaper than ordering from the eye doctor.
I love the case these came in! It is a hard plastic case with a flip top lid.
The case also came with a plastic cover to protect it from damage. The glasses themselves were also protected by a plastic baggie sort of thing. I like that. Don’t think anything less than being stomped on or run over by a truck during shipping would hurt them.
I got this pair because of the design on the sides. My pictures are a bit blurry but you can still see it.
They seem to be really well made glasses. Much better then the ones I had, which were the very cheap ones you get from a dollar store.
I was buying cheap ones because our newest puppy was going through that “chewing on everything” stage of life, and it took me a long time to get to where I would remember to put my glasses up where she could not get to them. I lost about 5 pair. The first pair that got chewed up was more expensive and I got really upset when she chewed them up. She has grown out of that now, so I really wanted a nice pair.
They look pretty good on me don’t they?
Here is a side view.
You can get free shipping in the U.S. and Canada or pay for expedited shipping. They also ship to over a hundred other countries around the world. They do accept PayPal.
I received a free pair of reading glasses to review.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Or just forget to carry them with you? I do that all the time and it is very annoying.
Not being able to read something without going back to get your glasses gets really old. And if you happen to be away from home then you are pretty much stuck.
i4ULenses can fix that problem for you!
These are portable reading glasses that will fit in your wallet. Or your purse or your pocket. They will even fit in your hatband!
So you wouldn’t have any problem carrying them anywhere you go. If you are going out in the yard or garden just put a pair in your pocket(in case you end up needing to read a packet of seeds or something).
Have a pair in your purse in case you are in the store and need to read a label.
I have reading glasses all over the house and these little glasses are great for those rooms or cars where you only need glasses occasionally. Sticking a pair in your glove box is a good idea too.
The only thing that might be a problem is if you wanted to use them on the beach or when out in the yard. They do not stay on if you have sunscreen on your nose or if you get really sweaty.
These are flexible so if you accidentally step on them or something it probably won’t hurt them. They actually have a guarantee that if your i4ulenses break within a year they will replace them.
The glasses are one size fits all(adjustable) and come in several diopters. I need 1.50 for reading on the computer but stronger ones for books. These work well and they are not heavy.
If you order a pair(or two or three) be sure to mention that you heard about them on Simple Wyrdings and they will send you a free hard case!
Zenni Optical is one of the best places to find cheap eyeglasses these days.
Zenni manufactures their own eyeglasses and they only sell their own brand. That is why they can sell them so cheap…there is no middleman, no retail overhead, and very little advertising cost.
They have some pretty green ones : There are also a lot of other colors and styles to choose from so you are pretty sure to find some to fit your own style.
Zenni considers prescription eyeglasses to be a necessary health item for most wearers as we know that many people cannot function well without their eyeglasses.
They are proud to be able to offer a high quality product with great durability and comfort at an affordable price.
They have all sorts of lenses too. My husband has to have bifocals if he wants to be able to read without changing his glasses constantly and Zenni has them!
All of their eyeglasses come with anti-scratch coating which my husband also needs. They also have UV protection and come with a microfiber cleaning cloth.
The shipping cost per order in the USA is $4.95 and international starts at $9.95.
They are offering 50% off on anti-reflective coatings through may 14th, 2012.
Holiday themed Zenni Optical Frames are coming to town! Zenni Optical makes cheap eyeglasses for everyday use. They also have some frames that come in festive holiday colors!
My favorites are these pretty green frames :
They have some red ones and some silvery ones too! Of course there are lots of other colors as well but those seem to me to be the ones most suitable for the holidays. If you like blue or purple however…you can find frames to suit! Go look for yourself and let us know what you find!
These would make nice stocking stuffers for just about anyone who wears glasses. Especially reading glasses.
They are very affordable as you can get some for as low as 6.95! And all thier glasses come with anti-scratch coating, full UV protection, a protective case, and microfiber cleaning cloth.
The shipping is reasonable too. USA shipping for an entire order is 4.95(international is 9.95) and if your order is more than $50 the shipping is free in the US!
Zenni can do this by cutting out the middleman and having practically no advertising budget. They only manufacture and sell their own brand Zenni.
This is really great because you can spend the money you save on glasses (that you HAVE to have) on something that you WANT. The last time my husband got glasses they cost well over 200 dollars…if we known about Zenni at the time we could have spent less than half that! We could have spent that money on Christmas presents for our grand-kids.
We will know better next time. And now so will you!
