Reading glasses are very useful for many of us who are not as young as we would like to be. For those with single vision readers, what do with them when not using them has been a question some of the best and most creative minds have wrestled with forever. We can always move them atop our heads. They don’t stay of course, and we end up stretching out the temples and messing with the fit doing so. Many use some sort of eyeglass chain or holder, but again, it’s an additional accessory people need to remember to carry with them.
We have written about several wrist reading glass products that have appeared on our radar over the last several years. Many have been crowdsourced products based on the idea that there must be a better way to carry reading glasses around.
Another entrant into the wrist reading glasses arena is EyeWris, with a new, stylishly crafted reading glasses, that can also comfortably wrap around a users’ wrist so that they are always within reach. Using patented folding technology, created by the founder and creator of Gorilla Glue, these innovative glasses are a perfect fit for any busy lifestyle.
The Kickstarter campaign, which is being managed by The LaunchPad Agency, launches today with a funding goal of $25,000 USD. The campaign features a limited super early bird special at $125 USD, as well as several other rewards for backers to choose from. The glasses are available in three different magnification strengths: Mild (Approximately +1.0 to +1.50), Medium (Approximately +1.75 to +2.50) and Strong (Approximately +2.75 to +3.50). The glasses also come with four different arm lengths included in each pack, so users will always have the perfect fit.
According to the Vision Council of America, approximately 75% of adults use some sort of vision correction. About 64% of Americans wear eyeglasses, and about 11% wear contact lenses, either exclusively, or with glasses. With so many wearing glasses, the time has arrived for a new generation of reading glasses that can always be within easy reach – EyeWris.
“As a father-and-son team, we developed EyeWris as a response to a need in our own life. As my dad got older, and smartphones became prevalent, the need for reading glasses became a constant necessity for his everyday life,” said Kenzo Singer, co-creator of Eyewris. “The problem was, he was always misplacing them.”
“EyeWris readers were developed to solve the problem of not having readers when needed,” said Mark Singer, co-creator of Eyewris and the founder/creator of the brand Gorilla Glue. “Eyewris glasses are well-built, functional, comfortable, and stylish. I typically need readers 20-30 times a day. Stored on my wrist, EyeWris readers are always within reach.”
Anyone who needs reading glasses has had that moment in a dark restaurant, while shopping, or using their phone when they have to read some small type and they don’t have their glasses with them. EyeWris reading glasses are so portable, nobody ever has to be caught in the dark again.
EyeWris features a revolutionary bridge technology that allows the frames to spring open and snap shut when closed. When closed, the glasses wrap comfortably and securely around the wrist, becoming a stylish bracelet. The glasses include interchangeable, flexible comfort-fit arms that hold the glasses in place and perfectly fit any man or woman.
EyeWris reading glasses are built to last. Developed for use in astronaut visors and space shuttle windshields, polycarbonate reading lenses are 10 times more impact resistant than glass. They also utilize the best available scratch-resistant, anti-smudge, and anti-reflective coatings. The genuine TR-90 frames are durable, yet lightweight, and feature a precision-tuned titanium-alloy memory metal band.
EyeWris, from the founder and creator of Gorilla Glue, is based in Santa Barbara and is committed to creating stylish eyewear with functionality that has never been seen before, without compromise. It took years of development with countless design iterations and revisions to arrive at the perfect solution. With top quality materials, precision craftsmanship, and a clear design vision, EyeWris delivers unparalleled convenience for those who need reading glasses. To learn more, please visit eyewris.com.
