Coffee Break: No-Fog Reading Glasses

A pair of tortoiseshell reading glasses

I made the switch to bifocals recently (apparently age 40 is a big turning point for that, and I can now see 40 in my rearview mirror), and when I wear my contacts, reading anything close up (including my phone screen) is almost impossible. (Note: You can buy bifocal and multifocal contact lenses, which I was surprised to learn.)

To help me read with contacts, I bought some cheap (and kinda ugly) reading glasses from CVS and the grocery store, and I keep one pair in my car, one in my nightstand, and one in the kitchen. Now, I also have these glasses from Clearspecs, which are specifically designed not to fog up. I tried them while wearing a face mask, and — yep, no fogging up!

Clearspecs’s reading glasses are $65 and available in three frame styles and four magnification levels (+1.5, +2.0, +2.5, and +3.0). The pictured style is the Canby, which is also available in black and clear.

Also interesting is the company’s Showerspecs, which could make a practical gift for an older relative who’s developed vision problems. They have special coatings that prevent fogging up and repel water droplets.
