Introducing ReadeREST: The Magnetic Eyeglass Holder

As someone who wears glasses, I can say that despite my best efforts, there are days when I misplace them. Sometimes I’m out and about when I need to take off my glasses momentarily, like if it’s raining or foggy, but then I forget where I placed them. This is a common problem that I’ve noticed among others who wear eyeglasses.

What Are My Options?

At first, I thought that I was just getting old and my memory was failing me, but then I realized that there aren’t a lot of options for this common problem. There aren’t many products available to keep your glasses on you at all times. Of course, you have the typical chains and cords for around your neck or your plastic or metal clips, but in my opinion, these options may not be for everyone.

If you’re working as a nurse in a hospital and you’re using a necklace holder for your glasses, you’re going to be in a tough spot when you’re trying to run around trying to answer codes and treat emergency cases. Even the plastic clips can fail you then. There are plenty of careers that require people with glasses to have a better way of holding their eyewear, so it doesn’t get in the way.

Imagine this – you’re at work and you need to take your glasses on and off as you go between completing tasks on the computer, reading from papers, and driving to and from client meetings. You might have to take your glasses on and off five times or more throughout the workday alone. When you’re that busy, you don’t have time to waste trying to find your glasses. You can’t afford to lose them or else you’re missing out on valuable time that could be used more efficiently.

Now, if you relied on more traditional eyeglass holder options, you’d leave room for problems to arise, as we mentioned earlier. But it turns out there is a new solution…

Introducing ReadeREST

At Eyeglass Supply Store, we know that holding onto your glasses is important, which is why we carry ReadeREST, the magnetic eyeglass holder that was featured on Shark Tank. ReadeREST uses two small magnets on the eyeglass holder and the back plate. The back plate is placed under your clothing in the desired location and the holder goes on the outside.

But what makes ReadeREST better than traditional eyeglass holders?

First, the magnetic force is strong enough to self-center the holder over the backing, creating a more secure holder for your glasses. Second, it’s easy to use – once you place the holder on your clothing, just insert the arm of the eyewear through the opening between your clothing and the holder. In addition, this can be used on all clothing, making it a convenient, unobtrusive option for anyone with glasses. Because the connection is so secure, you don’t even have to worry about your glasses moving around throughout the day – they’ll stay exactly where you placed them.

Why Eyeglass Supply Store? At Eyeglass Supply Store, we understand that some people prefer traditional eyeglass holders, while others would like to take advantage of the new ReadeREST accessories. That’s why we make sure we carry a wide variety of all options to keep every customer satisfied. If you’re interested in the ReadeREST, shop around our site and check out the different styles, such as butterflies, hearts, and more.

Eyeglass Cleaning 101

Eyeglass Cleaning 101

In today’s day and age, eyeglasses are mainstream. More and more people are turning to eyeglasses, both for function and fashion. Those who suffer from poor vision rely on glasses to get through the day and even the people who just wear glasses as an accessory value their eyewear. That means it’s more important than ever to care for your eyeglasses. In

this post, our experts at Eyeglass Supply Store offer some basic tips for maintaining your eyeglasses to keep them looking great and working as needed.

Let’s start with some Do’s and Don’ts…

DO: Clean your eyeglasses throughout the day. When your glasses are exposed to dust and other debris in the air, it’s important to take the time to stop and clean them. But you may ask, what is the proper way to clean your glasses? There are different opinions about this but there are definitely bad habits people get into that they should avoid if they want their glasses to last.

Which brings us to a DON’T: Don’t wipe your glasses on your shirt or other pieces of clothing.  It might seem like a quick fix for the problem, but, by rubbing your clothing on your lenses you can actually end up scratching them. This creates even more problems than the little smudges you originally experienced. Another bad habit we often see is cleaning your eyeglasses with everyday household cleaners, like Windex. That’s a major DON’T, because most household cleaners contain ammonia, which can tear off the coating on your lenses and damage your eyes.

Now that we’ve gone over a couple of things to avoid when cleaning your eyeglasses, we’re going to offer our advice.

Eyeglass Supply Store Recommendations

Ideally, you want to be prepared with the appropriate supplies for cleaning your glasses. Therefore, DO purchase a high-quality eyeglass cleaner and cloth. The cleaner should be 100% safe on all lenses, non-streak, and anti-static. The cloths should be microfiber cloths that are 100% safe on all lens types.

We recommend our Purity Lens Cleaner and Purity cloths. The Purity Lens Cleaner is available on eyeglasssupplystore.com in all different sizes, ranging from 1 oz. containers to 1-gallon refill bottles. Our Purity Cloths are available in a variety of colors, both in bulk packaging or individual pouches for added convenience.

Once you have the right products, it’s time to go through the proper steps for cleaning your glasses.

Your Eyeglass Cleaning Regimen

  1. Wash and dry your hands to ensure that there’s no dirt or grime that could be transferred to your lenses.
  2. Rinse your lenses under warm water to remove any debris.
  3. Spray a small, but adequate amount of your cleaner on the lenses.
  4. Use your microfiber cloth to wipe off the excess cleaner without scratching the lenses.

 

As stated earlier, it’s important that you clean your glasses regularly. So, come up with a routine that you follow each morning and at certain points throughout the day as needed. Stick to your schedule and when in doubt, an extra cleaning can only help!
