Our Inspiration

high quality reading eyewear: fastidiously designed by a licensed optician


Creating Renee’s Readers has been a lifelong passion of Renee Bachner, a NY-based licensed optician.  Inspired by the diverse life experiences and product preferences of her optical store customers and seeing a need for high-quality reading glasses of stylish but purposeful design, she pulled from her extensive ophthalmic background as well as her pre-optician career in the fashion industry and began to design readers that reflected customer wants and needs.

Drawing inspiration from an eclectic mix of client personalities and named after actual customers, one thing stands out the most in Renee’s reading glasses; they are fastidiously designed, well-made and styled for a mix of hip classic looks that's flattering and fashionably functional.

From years of optical experience, Renee knows that buying reading glasses can sometimes be confusing so Renee is available to help clear up any questions that you may have by providing you with accurate information to help you select the correct lens strength for your reading distance as well as choose a frame style that will fit you properly and compliment your looks. Renee's READERS is committed to helping you find the best reading glasses for you.
