Whether it's for Christmas, a birthday, an anniversary, a little reward for the young ones or a present for a special event - there are plenty of occasions and opportunities to give a gift to eyeglass wearers. But which glasses case is the right one? And how do you recognize a good ultrasound cleaner? Did you know how wide the choice of accessories actually is? BETTER VISION reports on gifts that will put a smile on the face of any eyeglass wearer.
A good case is one of the basic items that every eyeglass wearer needs. How would you like a customized case to meet your personal taste? An imprint or engraving with a loving dedication or the initials of the recipient can turn a glasses case from an everyday object to a great personalized gift.
There is also a huge choice of colors, shapes and materials, meaning that anyone can find their perfect case with ease. From lightweight cases made of felt, leather, cotton or silk, to extra strong hard-shell cases like precious wood or metal. There are also cases with special retaining clips for attaching to clothing or special self-adhesive eyeglass cases that are perfect for keeping in the car, with an adhesive strip to attach at any position and open with a push of a button. This allows the glasses to be conveniently taken out and replaced.
Whatever style you choose, you should make sure that the inside of the case is sufficiently cushioned on both sides. This absorbs impacts and provides optimum protection for the glasses. You might also want to consider a special case for sports glasses which has additional space to keep accessories in or, if needed, a case which is waterproof.
Tip for choosing the right size glasses case: we recommend taking precise measurements, particularly for eyeglass frames which are a bit larger when folded, –too little space in the case can be critical.
Additional visual aids are available for a better view, including reading magnifiers and lights, a sun protection clip for rapid attachment to glasses and all kinds of attractive fashionable extras. Attaching pins and clips in various designs not only provides practical everyday assistance by securely attaching your glasses to your jacket, belt or blouse; but they add a fashionable touch to your outfit as a brooch or accessory. Special eyeglass chains are also available in a huge range of styles and designs. The principle behind them is simple and practical; at the end of each accessory is a small ring through which you attach the folded glasses using one of the temples. This means that the glasses are securely attached to your body at all times when you're not using them and can be put back on as required. This is useful for reading glasses for the latest page-turner in the evening, or professional situations when you need to take your glasses off frequently.
Tip: eyeglass straps made of a special material (like neoprene) are ideal for those involved in sports, as they provide a secure fit at all times and do not slip even when you are sweating.
A delightful gift for eyeglass wearers who enjoy walking or travelling is a special telescope, allowing them to enjoy all the details of nature and scenery. They are easy to use, as telescopes for eyeglass wearers can be adjusted precisely to the owner's vision and can also be used with or without glasses on.
When it comes to sun protection, there are plenty of gift options for eyeglass wearers - whatever the season. Prescription sunglasses provide comfortable vision and added safety, when driving or skiing for example, as do tinted sun protection clips for attaching to a pair of glasses. They can be the ideal solution if the person doesn't want to carry spare glasses around with them. There is a huge range of sunglasses to suit every taste - from classic stylish designs to a sporty look to distinctively fashionable. The variety of models and options covers every possible requirement.
