Hammacher Schlemmer Eye Fatigue Preventing Reading Glasses 2.5, Model 78347250
Infused with melanin, these magnifying reading glasses prevent eyes from tiring
as you read or view a computer monitor. By age 65, eyes lose about 50% of their
reserves of melanin, the pigment that gives eyes their color, protects from
UV damage, and reduces glare naturally. The synthesized melanin in the lenses
compensates for aging eyes' increased sensitivity to glare by filtering out
not only ultraviolet light, but also "high-energy visible" blue/violet light,
the next most damaging part of the light spectrum. And though the lenses appear
to be tinted, they in fact enhance the perception of true color by removing
scattered blue light while improving contrast, as naturally occurring melanin
does. The lenses are treated with a scratch-resistant coating for long life
and are supported by a nylon wire on the bottom that reduces overall weight.
The stainless metal alloy frame features adjustable nose pads, integrated spring
