ThinOPTICS Reading Glasses Review

If you’ve read around the site, you know that I wear prescription glasses, so these optics glasses are not something that I can utilize.

But at this point, many of those around me are using ThinOPTICS — very portable, easy-to-store readers. A little over a year ago, my wife found these and had to get them. We looked for a store that had them so that we could go see them, feel them, touch them…and then a few packs of them came home with her.

I's Why's

  • No more forgetting your reading glasses when you need them
  • Attaches to the back of your phone without adding almost any bulk
  • Guaranteed for life

These ThinOPTICS readers have been awesome. Here’s the way it used to be when Amber (my wife), and I went to dinner: she would always forget her readers, prompting her to ask me to read the menu to her, or to read specific items on the menu to her. After a while that gets really old.


I would always say to her, “We bought you so many pairs of glasses, how come you never have them with you?” But now that she’s found ThinOPTICS, that’s not a problem anymore. Why not? Because she always has her phone with her. And the ThinOptics readers attach to the back of your phone.

Everyone we’ve shown these to who uses readers has ordered them. They are guaranteed for life--and yes, my wife has tested that out. She lost a pair, they replaced them; she broke a pair, and they were replaced. Now I don’t want you to think that these are easy to break, because they’re not. They’re very lightweight and small. They come in 1.00, 1.50, 2.00 and 2.50 optical strengths.

The little case they fit into measures about 3.75” x 2”. I have yet to see a phone that this case wouldn’t fit. The glasses are small, and people marvel at the fact that these don’t fall off your face. They really stay put, so that you can read what you need to read, but they’re not meant for long-term wear. They're meant to be worn to read something--like a menu--and then put away.

If you wear readers or you know someone who does, then you know what I’m talking about when I say that they never have their glasses with them when you’re out and about. And it’s frustrating for both of you.

So do yourself and your friends or loved ones a favor, and get some of these ThinOPTICS. They’re only about $20, and you’ll marvel at how awesome it is to have glasses with you all the time… and your friends will love that they don’t have to read everything for you!
