Eyewear for the irreverent and slightly jaded

Every 8 seconds, someone turns 40. (Yes, even your very own optometrist!) Eyes over the age of 40 begin to lose their flexibility which makes focusing at close range more difficult (also called presbyopia).  No, you don’t need longer arms, more light or a menu written in larger type. Diet, exercise and cryogenics will not stave off this condition.

We hate to break it to you, but reading glasses are inevitable.

Now the good news!  You are not doomed to wander the racks of drugstore readers in search of the least ugly pair of cheaters.  You’re stylish, smart and a little bit sarcastic and your eyewear should be too.  Eyebobs are reading glasses for the irreverent and slightly jaded.

We’ve got EyeBob styles and colors to suit every mood, from dignified classics to big, bold and bright, from the avant garde to buttoned-up conservative, all with a slightly tongue-in-cheek attitude.  We’ve also got sunglass readers to keep you looking stylish while reading outdoors.  Be the envy of younger eyes everywhere with your funky glasses!

Eyebobs firmly believes that your style should be sharp, even if your vision isn’t. Come get yours at Unique Optique.
