Half frame reading glasses are the most traditional style of readers. These are designed to sit low on your nose so you can easily see over them. Typically, they have a fairly narrow profile, are fairly flat across the top, and sometimes the top is removed (semi rimless) . Really, any pair of glasses you can look over easily work well as readers. For us, these traditional "granny glasses" are a few decades out of date. We offer much more contemporary styles that work well and look great whether you're a business executive, a computer geek, and/or a grandma.
