ASTIGMATISM & P.D.
Over the counter reading glasses are not for everyone. People who have a lot of astigmatism usually require prescription eyewear for the best correction. Astigmatism is a very common condition that describes the way light comes to a focus as it travels through the eye. Usually, as a result of the anatomy of your eye, light comes to a focus in two places rather than one. Slight amounts can usually be corrected in ready-made reading glasses. For larger astigmatism corrections, ready-made readers will correct you but they will not be comfortable for extended periods of time.
Another factor that influences how well you’ll see with your ready-made readers is where the optical center of the lens is placed. This is usually referred to as the P.D. or pupillary distance. The optical center should lie directly over the pupil. Since your eyes converge when you read, reading glasses should reflect an optical center that is decentered. Renee’s Readers are decentered to an average convergence distinctively for men and women. With high corrections (usually a +3.00 and above), prescription reading glasses will give you the best correction because any variance in your P.D. may hamper your vision.
In her own graceful style, my mother never left the house without a silk scarf wrapped around her neck, wrist length leather gloves with little gold chains and her Revlon Persian Melon lipstick, even to do grocery shopping. Alzheimer’s reduced so much of who she was.
She had so many talents. From designing and sewing the most beautiful clothes to gardening, baking and cooking and just being the ultimate homemaker. She taught me to be independent and creative. She believed in me and gave me opportunities that let me realize my abilities. She was the one whose advice I always sought, whose sense of style has had a lasting influence, whose devotion to her family and home instilled the same in me. She taught me to speak up when something was not right and to be kind and compassionate to those in need.
When we walked, we walked arm in arm. We were the best of friends.
Although your journey has come to an end, who you are continues to live in me.

Fresh, put together with your own stylish twist. Chic knows who you are, what works for you. More comfortable with who we are; chic has become the word of today.

WHAT'S TRENDING aka WHAT'S HAPPENING?Today’s out with the old in with the new attitude has spawned an influx of companies that are churning out trendy, low-priced products whose planned obsolescence comes not only at the expense of the buyer but our environment. Our driven consumerism panders to our more is better mentality. There are a slew of products available that promote quantity over quality, from disposable clothing that doesn’t last more than a few washes to appliances that are made not to last more than a few years and which are guiltlessly thrown away because they are cheaper to replace than repair. Future trending is the price we will pay as our landfills overflow, recycling plants are worked beyond capacity and the chemical byproducts of their production affect the air we breathe and the quality of water we drink.
We’ve come to accept inferior quality products whose limited life span comes at a cost to our environment as well as our wallets. Let’s redirect by choosing quality products that will last and perform rather than buy stuff that needs to be replaced often.
Renee’s Readers is committed to providing old trend quality products with prideful attention to details that will complete your defining look.
