It's a leap day!

pair of reading glasses on shelfAs it's the 29th February and because this very special leap day only comes around every four years; from now until midnight, spend just £10 and we will lovingly package your order for £1 only and send it on its merry way.

Did you know: One complete revolution of the Earth around the Sun takes approximately 365 days and 6 hours. An extra 24 hours thus accumulates every four years, requiring that an extra calendar day be added to align the calendar with the sun's apparent position.

Stylish Companion for Half-Eye Glasses

silver spectacle case Eyewear technologies may have come a long way, but, alas, glasses without a case can still be as fragile as in the days when Benedict Spinoza was grinding optical lenses in the mid-17th century. Prescription glasses in particular are known to come with a hefty price tag, which is why looking after them is so important.

We offer a neat and simple solution to keep half-eye glasses safe and tidy. With its stylish look, this silver spectacle case is clearly an accessory in its own right, but its practical benefits really make this silver beauty real gold. At only 10g, this lightweight and slim case will easily fit in a pocket or a handbag (even a miniature clutch) to provide shelter for your specs when you are not wearing them. As a slip-in case, it is great for those situations when you need to use your glasses briefly and then put them away.

Naturally, some people would rather use a solid case when going out, however they may find this compact accessory more suitable for home. With its soft inner lining, the case will provide sufficient protection from dust and smearing — and voila! — braving the stairs with a heap of books and a pair of glasses in one hand and a cup of tea and a phone in another looks like a slightly less dangerous adventure! And anyway, keeping glasses in a tidy case is much better than leaving them unprotected all over the place.

As we mentioned above, this case will fit half-frame glasses only. To make sure you choose the right case for your particular frame, here are the approximate dimensions: 160x60mm

Where Trendy Meets Practical

pair of reading glasses with very long arm length Recent years have seen reading glasses mature into full-fledged fashion accessories: such is the influence of geek chic nowadays that a good pair of specs can easily beat sunglasses for trendiness. We have seen glasses transform from a sometimes embarrassing necessity into a fashion statement which has made its way onto the big screen, the red carpet, the fashion runway, and social media. So to know whether it's Harry Potter or Harry Hill, you just need to look at the glasses.

The frame we are looking at today is a great example of a fashion statement. Light, but with a clearly defined silhouette, it is bound to become part of your look whether you are chairing a business meeting or posing for a new selfie.

this spectacle frame has a balanced colour scheme and extra long arms.The frame's trendy design and balanced colour scheme will make it appeal to men and women alike. While the front features only a hint of colour variation, the arms embrace a symphony of brown, orange and green with some black and light grey, fading into deep olive green on the inside.

One special feature of these reading glasses may require a second look before you notice it: the arms are 160mm long, which is to say, 20-30mm longer than usual. This hard-to-find arm length does not affect how the glasses stay in place, but it allows you to slip them off and conveniently hang them around your neck. Anyone familiar with the "where did I leave my glasses?" syndrome will know what a good idea this is!
