Did you know that reading glasses are the fastest growing category in eyewear? The reading glass category has changed dramatically in the last 5 years. Reading glasses are quickly becoming a necessity as well as a must-have accessory for the nearly 76 Million Baby-Boomers in the United States who are aging into this time of life.
About 60% of Americans are far-sighted; they have trouble reading or sewing without glasses, but can focus well at a distance and fourteen percent of Americans use non-prescription glasses for reading. This leaves a huge and growing market-share for the savvy retailer who is able to capitalize on the new trends and deliver readers that their customers are proud to own and wear.
