NearSights monocles are a stylish, convenient alternative to reading glasses. Once favored by 19th-century gentleman, the single-lensed eyepiece is slowly coming back as a must-have fashion accessory, and you’ll find the best selection of these hipster accouterments at Reading Glass World. The monocle is appearing everywhere these days – from trendy Manhattan clubs to fashion magazines and top-shelf liquor ads.
NearSights Monocles – the hip fashion accessory
Thanks to NearSights, a family-owned business based in San Francisco, you can embrace the monocle madness that has been sweeping the world. Monocles are much more than a cool fashion statement; they are practical, functional eyewear and are completely portable. Unlike like traditional reading glasses, monocles have little bulk or weight, so you won’t even notice you’re carrying them. NearSights monocles are gaining popularity among multiple generations and professions. Some restaurants are even offering monocles to their customers, so they can better read the menu in dim lighting.
NearSights monocles fit discreetly in your pocket, and the ball chain lanyard also makes them easy to wear around your neck. Whether you only need reading magnification for short periods of time, want to spice up your look, or don’t want to deal with fragile reading glasses, the monocle is a smart, affordable solution.
At Reading Glass World, you’ll find classic wire-rimmed monocles, rugged dog-tag styles as well as smooth acetate monocles in a handsome white oak finish. There’s even a waterproof monocle, especially designed for the active person, complete with a custom molded silicone casing.
Practical, portable and easy to wear
The experts at NearSights have brought back artisanal craftsmanship with an inviting selection of quality monocles that are comfortable, durable and easy to wear. These lightweight eyepieces are perfect for travel, or outdoor excursions where you don’t want to bring along expensive and delicate readers. The rugged tactical monocles, available in black or urban camo, are engineered for extreme conditions, making them a hit among outdoor enthusiasts. These “sports” monocles are made to be held with one hand and function more like magnifiers.
How do you wear standard versions of NearSights monocles? The secret is in the design. There are two galleries, or metal extensions, that fit horizontally between your cheekbone and brow. Simply raise your eyebrow, put the gallery on the top of your cheekbone and then just below the brow. The natural muscle tension keeps the monocle securely in place, letting you move or shake your head without the monocle slipping out.
If you aren’t keen on wearing the banners of middle age (drugstore readers) and fancy a distinguished look, we think you’ll love the bravura and hands-free vision correction of the monocle. They are ideal for any situation or activity where reading glasses are too cumbersome.
NearSights are available in common reading powers, from +5 to +4, and can also be fitted with prescription lenses. Whether you prefer the round or dog-tag style, these monocles are handy for reading product labels, wine lists or while texting.
