The Backup Reading Glasses You’ll Never Forget to Pack

The backup reading glasses you'll never forget to packOne of my basic travel tips is to always pack an extra pair of glasses, in case one pair breaks or gets lost. Well, here’s a company that sells reading glasses that make for a great backup for your backup…

ThinOptics, maker of the world’s thinnest reading glasses, just launched its second generation of glasses, the stylish and elegant Frontpage Collection. Each pair weighs just 9g (0.01lbs), making it the lightest full-frame model of reading glasses, as well. You can select your strength on Amazon. What’s even more amazing is that each pair comes in a 4mm (0.4cm) aircraft aluminum case that can slip into a pocket or attach to the back of a phone, tablet, laptop, or e-reader.

Frontpage Collection glasses come in two styles—the ovular Manhattan and the rectangular Brooklyn—and in a multitude of colors and strengths. As the ThinOptics PR person wrote to me, “This new product is perfect for the avid traveler – reading on planes, and more… OR just the absentminded person who is always forgetting his or her glasses!” You can grab a pair for just $19.99, which seems like a small price to pay for peace of mind.

I put mine in my carry-on bag since they take up so little room.
