Reading Glasses for Back to School: Varionet Review and Giveaway (Ends 9/3) CLOSED

Friday, August 20, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Personally, I do not need reading glasses - yet. I can still help my kids with their homework without squinting to read the page. My mom and mother-in-law both use reading glasses, and there is no way they could read a story to the grandkids without them. Or help with homework.

I had them try a pair of Varionet reading glasses. After much deliberation, we picked the Temperament progressive reading glasses. All of us were impressed by the quality, elegance, and lightness of the pair we received. Black metal frames with a nice shade of bluish gray on the arms, the glasses arrived in a stylish case, complete with a drawstring bag that doubles up as a cleaning cloth.

Whether you are going back to school for some adult education classes - I have a family friend who takes loads of those, and I can tell you she has an excellent memory from all that brain work! - or have school-aged kids and grandchildren, a good pair of reading glasses are a must. Varionet has a line of nice looking eyeware, and ships for free.
