Calabria reading glasses are just the right mix of style and price, and our prices are even better than the competition. The line has a wide selection of full eye and half eye styles that appeal to just about everyone. Calabria offers styles in polycarbonate plastic in every color from black and tortoise to red and hot pink. There are also styles with metal frames. Calabria names many of its eyeglasses for regions in picturesque southern Italy.
The readers may be picturesque, but the design doesn't fall short on technological advancements. A number of Calabria reader styles are made from Grilamid TR-90 memory plastic, a special grade of nylon from Switzerland with a high bending strength, low density and high resistance to chemical and UV damage. Frames made from this material, called Flexies, can withstand some wear and tear, including twisting and being bent without breaking or losing shape. Most of these styles are also ultra-light. Calabria also uses flexible spring hinges that offer a custom fit that doesn't squeeze at the temples, and can withstand being opened and closed frequently.
Expect a few more extras from these readers. Calabria readers come with a hard protective case with the Calabria logo. The company also makes frames in an XL size with a wider width and longer temples. These XL frames have a greater size than the 139mm width and 155mm temple (arm) length. This selection is ideal for someone who finds most frames too tight, or arms too short to fit over the ears. Most styles are available in powers ranging from +1.00 to +4.00 with increments of +.25 or +50. Find the style that works for you, then select the power you need for close up work such as reading and using the computer.
