My grandson Mazen, in the photo above, sports his way cool shades, ready to hit the beach.
And I bet if Maze knew his alphabet, he could wear those shades when he reads by the surf.
He’s got young eyes!
When my old eyes began to fail me and small print elude me, I decided not to grump.
I bought myself cute reading glasses and settled in.
The glasses worked great from my cozy spot on the couch.
But the first time I sank into my striped beach chair and pulled out a novel, I realized I was in trouble.
If I took off my sunglasses and put on my reading glasses, the sun blinded me.
If I didn’t wear my reading glasses, I couldn’t even read the title page.
I tried layering them: reading glasses with sunglasses on top.
It’s like trying to make mismatched puzzle pieces fit. Just can’t do it.
Solar Shield makes sunglasses designed to fit just right over regular glasses.
How clever is that?
And Solar Shield makes clips ons that fit snugly on today’s eyeglasses. They sent me two pairs to sample.
No tourist nerd look here. You stretch them to make them fit. They come in a carrying case to keep them sand-free when you aren’t wearing them.
So this summer, when the surf’s up, I’m set, just like Maze.
