Reading glasses men and women. Long sightedness comes to us all at some times in our lives.
Reading glasses men and women have been around a long time.
It might surprise you to learn that they have a fascinating history going back over 2000 years.
The first reading glasses owe much to the clergy in the middle ages. They spent their days in monasteries writing manuscripts and as now in those days eyesight would deteriorate around the age of 45.
Spectacles were an Italian invention ( wouldn’t you know! ) by a monk called Salvino degli Armati- no not Armani!.
These were rivet spectacles which must have been so uncomfortable unlike the modern reading glasses for men and women that our German designer Ineedyou have brought us today.
Another interesting fact is that Eskimo`s produced the first sunglasses.
In prehistoric times it is said that an Eskimo blinded by the glare of the sun on the snow carved an aperture in a piece of bone and strapped it over his eyes. A eureka moment if ever there was one and sunglasses were invented.
They are a long way from the modern sunglasses and sun reading glasses offered by us in our IZIPIZI range of men’s and women’s reading glasses.
The modern age has seen the birth of branded eyewear. We have a number of Brands that we sell. Here are some of them.:
