You've touched on one of my biggest frustrations of getting old: fumbling with reading glasses. The following discussion is anything but cool. No laughing or judgment from my millennial colleagues. And stay off of my damned lawn!

What I eventually landed on were bifocal or progressive reading glasses. When I get really busy behind the bar, I put them on and leave them on. You want a smaller pair (ie no aviators) so you can easily look over and under the glasses while wearing them. If all you need is help with tiny print, get a bifocal pair. If you have issues with mid-distance as well, like reading the the POS, get the progressives. The bifocals work great for me. Another option is half-frame or slim readers. They're easy to look over, under and around. This is what I keep at home for reading. A simple Amazon or Google search should turn up hundreds of options. And if you really want to look like a geek, pick up a glasses chain, rope or strap (especially if you work beach or poolside). I often use one, or I'm forever searching for my readers when I need them.

All of these option take a shift or two to get used to. So don't start out on a crazy weeded night. It was a fairly quick adjustment for me and I rarely even notice them anymore, only that I can see what I need to, when I need to.

~Good luck

I use them and got them at some random drugstore. I use them for regular glasses (I am pretty much blind) and prescription sunglasses with pretty big frames, so they definitely fit. The rubber parts are pretty accommodating. It is very nice not having to continuously push my glasses up my nose so they do not fall off my face, especially when it's hot out and I get pretty sweaty.
These look pretty close to what I have: http://www.amazon.com/Chums-Universal-Rope-Eyewear-Retainer/dp/B003CJW93W/ref=pd_sim_sg_3

Croakies are fantastic. I wear them doing anything from hiking to mountain bike and they've always held on. They really help your glasses fit up nice and snug. Inexpensive and you don't have to worry about multiple pairs of glasses.

I bought [Croakies] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0019LAPSQ/ref=pd_aw_sim_468_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=GKTSDXXH8RWHPZP1JR1H&dpPl=1&dpID=516hh7KTHWL) about 3 years ago for a Universal Trip and strongly recommend. The strap held on strongly and comfortably for the entirety of the Universal trip, two swim classes since then, and a full year of regular wear (I got a pair of glasses that were too heavy of a frame and they would basically fall off my face if I looked down for too long). I like that you can fit these close to your head, so the strap isn't just hanging off the glasses, but rather snugly secured.

I wear glasses all the time when I bike. I used to wear contacts, but stopped when my eyes got too sensitive. I use a strap like this with my normal glasses, and they work well to keep my glasses from slipping down my face. Just make sure the arms of your glasses are thin enough to fit through the sleeves.

You can seriously go to a walmart and find these things for cheap. You slip them over the back end of your glasses and make it tight. I used to do this as a player before I switched to goal. I had to go back to contact as with contacts you have peripheral vision that glasses just can’t provide.

I would just buy some retainers. They hold up well I use them in years passed on both my prescription sunglasses and regular prescriptions glasses. Never have to worry about glasses falling/dropping or losing them while dancing. You can always find them at the dollar or 99¢ store.

u/mcjuansters · 2 pointsr/streetlightmanifesto

I've worn glasses to many different concerts in the past and haven't had any issues. However I have in the past used a strap to keep them on my face when playing sports, so perhaps that may be something to consider. Here's an amazon link to such a strap They're not the greatest fashion statement, but they're really functional.

u/KnightsFan · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I recommend something like this over the traditional croakies. They tend to hold better and I doubt would be as damaged by the sun. I bought a pair from the gas station and it lasted me a few years of working on the water, then I tossed them onto my bag when the sun went down, picked up the bag and splash. Lost the sunglasses and the cable … Sad day.


I can't give you a specific recommendation on a pair, this is just what came up when I searched on Amazon.
