My human tells me that reading sunglasses are ideal for reading books in the sun. I’m not much of a reader really – I’ve read a bit of Enid Blyton and, frankly, I think Timmy of the Famous Five is a bit of a non-dog. I much prefer Jock of the Bushveld! Much more butch – a bit like me!
Reading sunglasses are good for any close up work in the sunlight so they’d probably help me with my favourite pastime of pushing the ball into a swimming pool, then persistently barking until said swimmer retrieves the ball and throws it for me. It’s quite clever really because these humans think I’m the one retrieving the ball whereas it is actually them doing the retrieving. You know, humans aren’t quite as clever as they think they are. I think they all need glasses!
Back to reading sunglasses, or tinted glasses, or sun readers, or whatever you want to call them. My business at Snazzy Specs has a lovely range of reading sunglasses which have proved to be immensely popular for the following reasons:
- These reading sun glasses offer 100% UV protection from the sun with their polarised lenses.
- They are fashionable and funky and complement an overall fashion statement.
- They’re good for close up activities in sunlight. Like shunting the ball in the pool! Or reading, if you must, on the beach or by the pool.
Reading sunglasses is a popular term for tinted reading glasses or sun readers (no, not the newspaper!) which enable humans to be able to read in full sunlight whilst avoiding both eye strain as well as the harmful rays of the sun. There are essentially two types:
Bifocal Reading Sunglasses
These have a magnification lens at the bottom of the glasses allowing people to be able to read whilst the rest of the glasses in the upper portion offer no correction but are polarised enabling wearers to see full distance. To the right is an example of our Espadrille range.
Full Reading Sunglasses
These have fully magnified lenses throughout offering correction throughout the full lens together with offering protection from harmful UV rays. To the left shows an image of our very popular Cannes range.
I did have a search on the internet and did find some glasses called ‘doggles’ so I’m going to be looking into those further! Looking into those – geddit? It’s about time there was specifically glasses for dogs! Tee hee! I think I’ll order some in when my human’s away!
Meantime, those dog days of Spring and Summer are coming and we’re getting geared up for bumper sales of reading sunglasses!
