These magnifying reading glasses are infused with melanin to prevent eyes from tiring as you read or view a computer monitor, available only from Hammacher Schlemmer. By age 65, eyes lose about 50% of their reserves of melanin, the pigment that gives eyes their color, protects from UV damage, and reduces glare naturally. The synthesized melanin in the lenses compensates for aging eyes' increased sensitivity to glare by filtering out not only ultraviolet light, but also “high-energy visible” blue/violet light, the next most damaging part of the light spectrum. And though the lenses appear to be tinted, they in fact enhance the perception of true color by removing scattered blue light while improving contrast, as naturally occurring melanin does. The lenses are treated with a scratch-resistant coating for long life and are supported by a nylon wire on the bottom that reduces overall weight. The stainless metal alloy frame features adjustable nose pads and integrated spring temple hinges. Not available for shipment in New York. Specify magnification: 1.25, 1.5, 2.0, or 2.5. 1 1/8" H x 5 1/2" W. (5 oz.)
