Dual Purpose Reading and Sunglasses


Online eyewear retailer Daniel Cullen is offering customers of ready to wear reading glasses a useful seasonal accessory with a choice of dual purpose reading glasses and sunglasses.

August 08, 2008 -- Reading Glasses by Daniel Cullen offers an extensive range of optical frame styles on their website. The frames are neatly grouped together for navigational ease comprising of rimless eyewear, designer eyewear (including the Porsche reading tool, Austin Reed and the reasonably priced Mayhem collection), plastic framed eyewear, metal framed eyewear, a small selection of glass lens eyewear providing heavier but scratch resistant lenses, a selection of reading sunglasses and three remaining groups of accessories, magnifying aids and bargain basement of discontinued items.


Dual purpose reading glasses and reading sunglasses
Of particular interest at this time of year are the reading sunglasses and how valuable to combine these with ordinary reading glasses as in the case of frame B-750. As described on the site they are "dual purpose reading glasses and reading sunglasses" due to the custom made detachable polarised lenses.


 Wrap-around sports sunglasses that offer stylish, lightweight sun protection with superior optics

You may find however that a pair of wrap around sports sunglasses fits the bill quite nicely and in that case you should take a look at frame PSO-4 which has an optical insert for reading. So not only do you have a pair of stylish regular sunglasses but also a pair of reading sunglasses thanks to the handy little insert which clips into place in seconds.

Reading Glasses - Basic to Designer



We offer an extensive online range of stylish reading glasses and combine them with classically designed examples of eyewear to provide a rich and comprehensive choice of spectacle frames glazed with non-prescription reading lenses.

Fashion conscious visitors to our website may note recent additions to the designer eyewear section under the name of 'Mayhem'. These styles have a trendy, young, modern feel to them which is captured not only in the design of the frames themselves, but the colours and textures applied. They compliment our designer eyewear category already populated by Porsche, Nicole Farhi, French Connection / FCUK and the rather lovely gold half eye spectacle frame by Algha.

Other additions this month can be found within the metal framed eyewear section with five frames, basic yet practical, and when individually glazed by the optical lab here in the UK with a choice of lens strength, provide excellent quality reading glasses for just £20. Frame size varies from small to medium, each one has sprung hinges and the colours include black, gun metal or gold.

Designer Reading Glasses in Porsche Frames



Porsche design titanium frames, Trivex anti reflecting lenses, ref. p8134


The frame.
Following inquisitive and enthusiastic emails about certain Porsche eyewear, ref p8134, we were keen to find out a little more. We were informed that, like the stylish reading tool (ref. p8801), p8134 was indeed an 'off the shelf' or 'ready to wear' pair of reading glasses, however with a little investigation we found this to be incorrect.



We were still intrigued and by now eager to get our hands on this attractive looking frame. We placed the order and duly discovered an excellent, strong yet lightweight titanium spectacle frame which when worn, sits comfortably in position, surprisingly without the need for nose pads. The frame itself is thin and, as you would expect from outstanding German design, wonderfully minimal and practical.



Designer reading glasses, black Porsche titanium frame


The lenses.
What type of reading lens would we glaze into this stylish designer frame? Well it would quite rightly have to compliment and reflect the Porsche brand quality, and like the frame would have to be strong and lightweight, as well as providing superb optical quality. We consulted with the optical lab and, after discussing several possibilities, opted for Trivex lenses, offering a triple combination of features,


  • superior optics

  • impact resistance

  • ultra light weight




These excellent optical lenses are available from the website, glazed into the frame in one of nine different dioptres providing a wider customer choice than would usually be offered in standard ready to wear reading glasses. These are as follows:-
+0.75 +1.00 +1.25 +1.50 +1.75 +2.00 +2.25 +2.50 or +3.00

We believe it necessary to offer more lens choice in designer reading glasses such as this, which is why we offer +0.75, +1.75 and +2.25, moreover it is becoming increasingly harder to source reading glasses with +1.25 lenses as most manufacturers prefer to glaze upwards of +1.00 dioptre only in increments of +0.50, so manufacturers out there please take note!



The extras.
Designer eyewear such as this needs to be protected when not in use and p8134 is accompanied by a soft printed cleaning cloth suitable (along with a recognised cleaning solution), for the gentle cleansing of the lenses. Naturally it is also provided with a hard case, embossed with the words 'Porsche Design'.

Rimless Reading Glasses

Rimless reading glasses, frame ref. C-70A


As an online company we constantly strive to supply lots of popular styles, however some of the most popular can be found within the rimless reading glasses section of the site.

We currently provide a choice of over 30 different types of rimless designs with prices ranging from £5 to £79 (NB prices quoted are in GBP sterling)

The majority of these reading glasses are glazed with clear lenses, although we stock a lightweight modern style (frame ref. New Mexico) with a choice of brown, blue or pink lenses if preferred.

The lens powers available within the rimless reading glasses section are consistent with other styles throughout the site and the popular dioptres of +1.00 +150 +2.00 +2.50 +3.00 and +3.50 are comprehensively covered.

We also provide harder to obtain lens dioptres of +1.25 +1.75 +2.25 (i.e. frame ref. H 514) and +4.00 (frame ref. R-17b). Furthermore we are able to glaze low power lenses of +0.50 and +0.75 which are available either in the high quality Flexi Spex range or in frame ref. 086 Bespoke

Rimless reading glasses can be very stylish thanks to modern design, they are also naturally lightweight due to the lack of frame, practical as they are easy to perch on the nose and peer over, and extremely comfortable to wear.
