Reading Glasses UK

Reading glasses United Kingdom are for men and women who suffer Long-sightedness. Cool and trendy reading glasses new to the UK can be found here.

The United Kingdom does not tend to manufacture them. It is more the domain of China and Taiwan. The materials used are generally plastic or acetate. The lens type vary. The standard should be an aspheric lens which provides a flatter viewing experience.

Usually different shapes sizes and strengths are available for men and women. When looking at a pair of  glasses you will need to know the length of the frame, temple and lens to find a pair that will fit you.

The second and equally important essential is the strength of magnification that is needed. The dioptres generally go up in 0.5 steps but can be found in 0.25 strengths also.

Retailers in the United Kingdom will stock +1 -+3 magnifications.

To find your reading strength you would be best advised to go and have an eye test at your opticians.

Once that is done the worlds your oyster. Choose your style and colour of cool and trendy readers. Do you have a favourite brand ?

izipizi wears reading glasses

Funky wears reading glasses

Funky wears reading glasses because he is long sighted the optician had told Funky that

he had presbyopia and needed reading glasses

He had never worn reading glasses before but his friends told him that he would look good in reading  glasses and not to worry.

Which reading glasses would Funky choose and where would be buy them from?

A friend had suggested a website that sold branded reading glasses.

“I won`t  wear boring reading glasses”  said Funky.” “I will only wear reading glasses that are stylish and fashionable.”

Having looked on the eyeeyedesign website that had been recommended to him he found the izipizi brand.

” When I first looked for reading glasses I was disappointed but I now have access to a full range of fashion reading glasses in various shapes and colours that are funky, trendy and fun.” said Funky.

Over the weekend Funky bought a whole range of different styles and colours of izipizi reading glasses.


Funky now had a wardrobe of reading glasses from which to choose.

That morning Funky had decided to go to town and dressed in his jeans and t shirt.

Because he was dressing casually he had to decide which reading glasses to wear?

” In my  the opinion” Funky said “reading glasses should be something that you actually like wearing.

That suit the shape of the face and look attractive when worn. 

Because of this they should reflect the image, the look, the fashion and the personality of the wearer. That`s what my reading glasses have to do. ” 

“What will I choose today”


izipizi had named each of the shapes of their reading glasses in alphabetical order.

#A. izipizi  described as small round and discrete reading glasses. 

#B. izipizi had a  rectangular shape. Maybe he might wear these reading glasses to town

#C. izipizi Funky found this shape to have a real retro feel to them. Funky reading glasses.

They were chunky and fun and might go well with his jeans and t shirt.

#D. izipizi thought Funky were iconic and on trend reading glasses. It was one of his favourites.

#E. izipizi  Oversized reading glasses.


What a dilemma so many shapes of reading glasses to choose from but he was glad he had bought them all!


What colour reading glasses would Funky choose?

Funky went to his reading glasses wardrobe where all the reading glasses were stacked neatly with each shape and their respective colours.

” I have to decide what izipizi colour will go with my outfit.” said Funky.  Would it be blue tortoise?

” I like blue tortoise but I think that Kaki green would  also go well with my jeans and t shirt.” Funky mused.

“What a choice I have!”

Do you want to know what izipizi shape and colour Funky would wear to town?

Then be sure to come back and read about his next adventure.

reading glasses united kingdom for presbyopia

Reading glasses UK 2021

Reading glasses UK 2021.

Reading glasses in the UK in 2021 have changed dramatically. The public quite rightly seek fashion style and quality in their reading glasses and eyewear.

Gone are the days of cheap ready readers sold in shops in the UK.

Quality is a big requirement. Glasses need to last longer than a couple of weeks.

We may think of fashion trends in reading glasses in 2021 as being a relatively modern concept but we would be wrong.

It might surprise you to learn that they have a fascinating history going back 2000 years.

I would like to take you over the next few news spots on a journey through those trends to show you how we have arrived today in 2021 with modern fashion reading glasses and eyewear.

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 sunglass and sun reader offered by us in our I wear funky range but without that eskimo where would we be?

The first reading glasses owe much to the clergy in the middle ages.

They spent their days in monasteries writing manuscripts.

Now as in those days eyesight would deteriorate around the age of 45.

The first reading glasses were an Italian invention ( wouldn’t you know! ).

A monk called Salvino degli Armati- no not Armani! invented them.

They were rivet spectacles which must have been so uncomfortable unlike the reading glasses of 2021 worn in the UK.

Where to look for Fashion style and quality reading glasses in the UK in 2021

Check out our French brand Izipizi for great styles fashion and colour.

For fashionable women`s Reading glasses in 2021 look no further than Doubleice from Italy and their spectacular Velvet range.

For Men who like practical  the I Need You  hangovers on our sister website Funky readers might be the answer. You can also buy the Clever 2 featured in the image

With  longer temples they will hang around your neck or sit snuggly on your head.

reading glasses the funny side.

Reading glasses the funny side.

Reading glasses the funny side

Reading glasses have a funny side to them.

How do you know carrots are good for your eyes?

Because you never see rabbits wearing reading  glasses

The optician just took my glasses from me to repair them. They said they can fix it in 5 minutes.

I can’t see it happening.

Do you know that If Covid 19 has forced you or a loved one to wear a mask with your reading  glasses that you may be entitled to condensation.

An old man went to an eye specialist to get his eyes tested and asked “Doctor, will I be able to read after wearing glasses?”

Yes of course, said the doctor, why not!
“Oh How nice it would be, I have been illiterate for so long”.

On a more serious note

People come to a time in their lives when they can  become longsighted and will have to consider the less than funny option of having to wear reading glasses.

The optician will give you an eye test and examine your eyes for any more serious problems. 

If you need glasses then your prescription will detail your reading dioptre strength.

They usually are in 0.5 increments in strength. Most reading glasses on the market provide strengths from +1 to +3.5

Now you have your strength what do you choose and where do you buy them from?

Ready readers can be found in most shops but tend to be cheap and nasty. If you want something that you want to throw on and off your face then they are fine.

If you want a quality pair of reading glasses then you may have to look further.

There are many types and styles of reading glasses- coolfashiondesigner-funky etc

Decide what you want to wear. You will have to ensure that the frames will fit your face size and shape.

Colour may also be important to you.

We have a large range of reading glasses that are stylish fun and funky to choose from.

Visit our website and browse our collection.

We have a sister site Funkyreaders where you can find more brands of reading glasses for men and women.

Leaving on a funny note : I went into a sandwich shop and asked ” Can I buy a bagel with cream cheese” The shop keeper looked at me and said” No we only take cash”

Ciao for now!

eskimo snow shades

Eye wear Fashion History 1

Eye wear Fashion History 1

Where in eye wear fashion history  do you think the first sunglasses came from? If I said they were made out of necessity by an Eskimo what would you say? It should not surprise you really as we experience how they feel every time we go skiing  or have a fall of snow followed by a sunny day.

There was no plastic or acetate in the prehistoric times.Eskimo`s will have hunted with spears made of flint and bone. Imagine the eureka moment! The Eskimo frustrated by the glare from the sun takes a piece of bone he strikes it therefore causing a slit and carving out the marrow he ties it around his face. Suddenly the brightness is dimmed!

Our first sunglasses are created.

eskimo snow shades

Middle Ages Eye wear fashion history

They are a long way from the modern sun glass and sun reader offered by us in our IZIPIZI range but without that Eskimo where would we be?

Where to next? Well our eyes deteriorate rapidly even today. In the middle ages where candlelight was the only medium with which to read in the dark, they deteriorated even faster.

If you were aged 45 or over and were lucky enough to still be alive your eyesight was shot!

The Clergy who lived in the monasteries of the time were therefore particularly effected as they wrote many of the manuscripts often by candle light.

Salvino Degli Armati is said to be the inventor of the first properly made spectacles. These were rivet spectacles made from steel or any pliable metal and held together by rivets. They must have been so uncomfortable to wear. He was a member of the clergy and lived and worked in the monasteries of the day. Well enough history for now. Please check in on our second part when we will once again be looking at the history of eye wear.

eyewear in the middle ages

In the meantime take a look at our sister website Funkyreaders that has a large selection of European reading glasses sunglasses and sun reading glasses . We guarantee they are not made from rivets. They therefore will be more comfortable than Senor Armati`s- no not senor Armani!!

Check in on how things continued to develop.

Ciao for now!

Martin and Judith
