My new Crosby reading glasses in "Burgundy Fade" from Warby Parker (brand previously mentioned here). I need specific prescription lenses for reading glasses (long story), so I can't purchase readers off-the-rack. Enter Warby Parker, again, with an ever expanding no-fail frame selection. Tip: if you do order prescription glasses online, make sure to ask your optometrist for your PD measurement—this is the distance between your pupils measured in millimeters. You'll need an accurate PD for the lenses to be properly aligned and avoid eye strain. Alternately, if you have a computer with a web cam, you can measure yourself on Warby Parker's website. I have a phobia of not being able to see/not having glasses, so I keep several pairs of distance glasses, a couple of reading glasses, sunglasses, plus lots of contact lenses around (remember the Twilight Zone episode "Time Enough at Last?").
