Accessible reading glasses, even on a ski lift, make reading fine print do-able again.
You’ll love these reading glasses, because you’ll always have them with you. No more passing glasses around to read the trail map or the menu. You’ll have your very own glasses, and you’ll know exactly where they are—because their case is on your phone. Now that’s the coolest thing since sliced bread.
Teddy Shalon, the inventor and CEO of ThinOptics, is a serial entrepreneur who spent many years innovating in the Life Sciences. He’s constantly looking for ways to help people enjoy healthy and active lifestyles.
The “ThinOptics moment” happened on a bike ride with his friend. When they stopped for a break, his friend handed Teddy his iPhone and asked him to read a text message from his son. “Is there something wrong with your son?” Teddy asked.
“No, I just don’t have my reading glasses, and I can’t read the message,” his friend said. That’s when Teddy realized that phones are useless if people don’t have their reading glasses. On the ride back, the idea of ThinOptics was born—glasses that are always with you, right there on your phone.
Here are some of the nitty-gritty details. ThinOptics are powerful, durable and fit virtually every nose. They’re made from thermo-injection molded
optical grade Poly-Carbonate which is shatter-proof and often used in safety and ballistic eyewear. The lenses are made by one of the largest and most advanced optical lens manufacturers in the world. The bridge is made of Nitinol—an alloy of nickel and titanium— which is 10x more elastic than spring steel, and it’s encased in medical grade silicon tubing and anchored in an injection molded Poly-Carbonate frame. ThinOptics readers come in three optic strengths from +1.00 to +3.00 and case sizes that will fit on your phone.
