Eyebobs: Hip Reader Glasses for a Good Cause

Say "so long" to buying reading glasses at the drug store...

Eyebobs come in tons of styles and colors. Support a worthy cause with these red and orange frames.

Every eight seconds, someone turns 40… the age when many of us struggle to read at close range. Nope, you don’t need longer arms, but it’s probably time to go shopping for reader glasses.

Fortunately, you’re not doomed to scour the racks of plain-Jane drugstore readers in search of the least offensive pair.

There’s a new eyewear frame manufacturer in town with styles and colors to suit every mood, from cool and classic (Did somebody say denim eyeglasses?) to big, bold and bright.  You can even be understated by day and rock a vintage vibe by night. Heading to the beach? Snag a pair of Eyebobs sunreaders for stylish reading outdoors. (If you’re guilty of wearing sunglasses atop your reading glasses, this is your chance to up your game.)

Eyebobs are sold strictly as reading glasses, available in quarter magnifications from 1.0 to 4.0. But here’s a special treat: You can easily convert your Eyebobs into custom prescription eyewear if taken to a certified optician. Your optical expert can even pop in progressive lenses if you need them.

Eyebobs Stands Up To Cancer

Between now and December 31, 2017, Eyebobs is selling a limited-edition frame in two colors, red and orange, to benefit Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C). Co-founded by news anchor Katie Couric in 2008, SU2C raises funds for collaborative cancer research that gets new treatments to patients who need support quickly.

Portraits of celebrities wearing “Take A Stand” frames, captured by photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, are the heart and soul of the initiative, and include Katie plus other big-spirited celebs like (be still, my heart) John Slattery of TV-hit Mad Men fame.

Here’s how it shakes out:

–  “Take A Stand” frames retail for $79 and are available at eyebobs.comNeiman Marcus and other fine retailers.
–  20% of proceeds from “Take A Stand” frames will be donated to SU2C to accelerate life-saving therapies.
–  Eyebobs will contribute a minimum of $100,000 to SU2C.
–  Post a photo wearing your “Take A Stand” Eyebobs with hashtag #standwitheyebobs and Eyebobs will donate an additional $2 up to $50,000​.

Picture yourself in hip Eyebobs reader glasses…it’s a beautiful sight for a worthy cause.
