Disclaimer: this post doesn't have anything to do with fashion.
I know I'm not alone in this issue with my eyes slowly getting worse and it started when I reached my forties. I noticed it at stores; I couldn't read the price clearly or I couldn't read the care instructions on items I was thinking about buying. I had prescription glasses that I wore when I sat down to read a book, but I kept them at home with my book, of course.
Now I'm almost 51 and I am one of those ladies who needs a pair of readers in every room of the house or around my neck. I can't read the directions on my face or hair products. I can't read the recipe I'm making for dinner. Oh, and I really struggle in restaurants, especially when the lighting is dim. My kids and husband really make fun of me and it makes me feel OLD! I don't want to feel old.
It was disheartening when I went to the eye doctor and found out that I need more powerful readers now too. I own one pair of readers, Kate Spade, that I found at Nordstrom. Now I need to shop for a more powerful pair. I've tried googling and don't know the best brands or websites to find a chic pair because I'm probably not going to buy a pair at Walgreens. So, friends, please share the goods on where to grab a fashionable pair of readers that won't break the bank. I'd appreciate it! And if anyone else struggles with reading labels and tags, just know that I feel you.
