Will ThinOptics™ reading glasses fit my nose?
ThinOptics reading glasses are extremely comfortable to wear because they weigh less than a five pence piece and therefore they put only gentle pressure on the sides of the nose.
ThinOptics™ are made from thermo-injection moulded optical grade polycarbonate, which is shatter proof and frequently used in safety and ballistic (bullet proof) eyewear. Not only that, but the bridge is made from Nitinol, which is 10x more elastic than spring steel. The Nitinol bridge is then encased in medical grade silicon tubing and anchored in the injection moulded polycarbonate frame.
The optical grade polycarbonate used in ThinOptics™ reading glasses is the same material that is regularly found in high end prescription glasses. Our lenses are made by one of the largest and most advanced optical lens manufacturers in the world, so yes - they’re excellent quality.
ThinOptics reading glasses are offered with the following optical strength options: +1.00 (Low), +1.50 (Low-Mid), +2.00 (Medium) and +2.50 (High). The Low covers a range +0.75 to +1.25, the low-mid covers a range of +1.25 to +1.75, the medium covers a range of +1.75 to +2.25, and the high covers a range of +2.25 to +2.75.
You will want to choose the option that most closely matches your needs; however, since reading glasses are optimised for short-distance reading usage, you will automatically adjust the reading distance between your eyes and the object you are reading. Since ThinOptics reading glasses cover optical strengths ranging between +1.00 to +2.75, nearly all people requiring reading glasses will find a ThinOptics reading glasses option that suits them.
ThinOptics™ reading glasses have been designed to fit the vast majority of noses. They can be positioned higher up the nose to fit right in front of the eyes. For those with smaller or flatter bridges, they can be positioned to fit right above the nostrils. We have tested hundreds of different combinations of nose pad angles and widths to arrive at the optimal design for the majority of noses.
