Some twenty years ago the idea that I would need glasses for reading never occurred to me! Naive or stupid? I'm not sure but now some years later glass for reading is a fact of life.

With a unique bamboo arm that's very flattering, also the spring hinges make the glasses very comfortable to wear too. Both red and brown are favourable alternatives, but I'm happy with my choice
