Here are a few recent comments:It's either a weird coincidence or a conspiracy, but as soon as I turned 40, book and magazine publishers, newspapers, online sites, and letter writers all started using smaller type. I'd never worn glasses in my life, but now I can't live without them. I'm also one of those people who, because I only need them to read, has to have 20 pair. Nineteen of them I can never find when I need them. I've worn your glasses everywhere and ALWAYS get compliments like; "Those glasses are beautiful, are they Ralph Lauren?" My first reaction is to say "uhh, yes, yes they are!", but I've been so thrilled with your products and service that I want to share you with everyone. I've directed many people to this site and I'm proud to do it. I just completed my second order with BoomerEyewear.com...nearly another 20 pair. I hope you're in business and continue to provide the style, quality, service and value for many, many years. Thanks,
Diane B, Ocean Ridge, Florida One of your pair of glasses went through the laundry last night in my back pack - didn't put in dryer because I didn't dry my back pack - but the glasses came out no worse for the wear. Rember that Timex ad - takes a lickin' but keeps on ticking? It reminded me of that.

I never liked the selection at the warehouse Clubs. I go through glasses at an alarming rate and the glasses I liked were the Dr. Dean Edell glasses carried by Longs Drug. They rarely have MORE than one is stock of the style I like. Not only were the Boomer Eyeware equal quality, they have a much BETTER price AND I CAN BY A NUMBER OF THE SAME STYLE AT A TIME.
I purchased four pairs of your glasses and they were functional and stylish. It's great to have extra glasses where and when you need them. Thank you!!!
I was very happy with your product and the shipping etc.
Service, style, and quality, what more can be said. Boomer Eyeware gives you more than you expect as a customer. I'm glad to be a customer and look forward to the new line.
More About The Boomer Eyeware Company - Values and Vision
Our clear vision for The Boomer Eyeware Company is simple…We believe that those of us who need a little help seeing small things should be able to own quality reading glasses. We believe our customers should have the option to choose styles that suit their needs at much lower prices than offered at retail stores and online at other web sites.
Boomer Eyeware is here making this possible. We use our products. We wear reading glasses We have been frustrated at high prices and poor selections.
Here is our story as told by one of our founders. Does it look familiar?
“It all started a few years ago one day when I realized that I could not see the small dots between the numbers on my wristwatch. I thought it was a passing situation, probably not enough light or I was tired. It never crossed my mind that I may need reading glasses. About a week later, my 3 year old had a splinter in her foot. As she pointed to the splinter, I realized that no matter how much light I put on her foot I could not find the splinter. My daughter got up and hobbled over to a drawer and brought me a magnifying glass. Clearly seeing the splinter, and, by the way, successfully removing it, I realized that I needed to pay a visit to an eye doctor, an ophthalmologist.
My ophthalmologist gave me a basic eye exam. While in the examining chair one of the tests involved him holding up a card with a simple sentence while I peered through a device that looked like truncated binoculars. I was amazed at the clarity of the letters between a totally clear lens and one that had a slight magnification. My eye doctor explained to me the physiology of the human eye and changes that often occur with age that necessitates a “little help”. The condition is called Presbyopia. As expected, I was now joining the ranks of the millions that need a “little help” to see small things.
My ophthalmologist strongly recommended that I purchase from him a pair of reading glasses, which I did. They cost around $100.00 and made an incredible difference on my enjoyment of reading. He suggested that I use these for late night reading as well as during the day when I was on a computer. When I asked him about the reading glasses I kept seeing in racks at my local drugstore he told me it would be fine to pick up a few pair of these for those times when my prescription glasses were not around and I needed a “quick read”. I asked him for my magnification number which he gave me and off I went to my local drugstore where I chose a pair for $19.99.
It has been over 13 years since my first eye check up. Like anyone, I greatly value my sight and I see my ophthalmologist every year. As I get older and my prescription changes I have my eye care professional update the frames he has sold me in the past with current lenses. While these glasses are still pricey, they are worth every penny. Within a few days I go to my local drugstore get a new set of readers to put in all those drawers, glove compartments, tool boxes and my bicycle saddle bag.
Since I found that I was a repeat consumer of extra reading glasses, a few months ago I began to look into starting a company that sold these same types of glasses, “readers” at a lower price via the Internet. Here we are.
At Boomer Eyeware we have sourced manufacturers from all over the world and have come up with an assortment of reading glasses that are not only less expensive than you will find at drug and grocery stores, but also have great style and are of equal or better quality.”
