Designing my own line of reading glasses is something I always wanted to do. At first, raising a family was a priority as was developing my optical store business. But when my father died and my mother developed Alzheimer’s, my own mortality became more of a reality.
As a devoted caregiver, I often felt emotionally drained and physically exhausted. Several of my customers noticed my stress. They knew it all too well. Many of them were going through the same thing. We were always on edge, waiting for a phone call that something happened…a fall or worse. We were frustrated that we weren’t doing enough or devoting enough time to our own families. And we felt guilty that we still wanted to enjoy our own lives.
Having spent so much of my life taking care of others and seeing how age and illness had affected my parents, I couldn’t help but think about my life and all the things I wanted to do. In spite of these and life’s other challenges, everyone agreed how important it is to find the time to do the things we enjoy. Motivated in a “now or never” decision and inspired by their ageless attitude, I created Renee’s Readers.
This is what I enjoy. I love to create, I love fashion and I love to hear about all the interesting things that people do. I also know that our busy lives calls for style that not only makes us looks good but has the practical features that makes their use easy and comfortable. Answering to the wants of reading glass wearers, Renee's Readers are made to last in wearable, on trend style and provide you the clear vision of optical quality lenses.
