Flat, wallet reading glasses


These flat reading glasses, designed to be kept in a wallet, appeal to me for reasons of both convenience and vanity (though not in that order). Having finally admitted that I occasionally need reading glasses (meaning, when I'm wearing my long distance contact lenses which help me drive but rob me of my ability to read a menu), I still don't want to display it around my neck or on top of my head. I'm just not ready for that, not yet. And, I can't make room for one more thing in my purse, what with my iPod and my BlackBerry and my handheld GPS all competing for space. For this reason, I love wallet-sized tools, like those credit card pocket knives that include miniature scissors. Okay, so these reading glasses aren't fashionable (haven't seen many that are), but I'd only have to wear them for the 45 seconds it takes me to order my dinner before anybody sees me. Besides, they're only $7.98 at Taylor Gifts.
