MORE ABOUT CliC GLASSES
The history of CliC glasses...
Just over 20 years ago, CliC CEO Ron Lando set out to create the most convenient and stylish readers on the market that would always be around you.
After 18 months of research and development, the CliC design proved the feasiblity of the lightweight front connecting concept.
Over the years, CliC Eyewear won the Vision Choice award at the International Vision Expo. New products with this type of common sense appeal are not introduced every day. Experts in the industry have noted, CliC's front connection technology is one of the best eyewear innovations since glasses were invented.
In 2019 ownership changed to Rick Dercks. As an accomplished business owner, Dercks is known for his approachability and innovative thinking. Since the change of ownership, CliC Eyewear has continued to provide high quality glasses to CliC lovers around the world from its headquarters in Appleton, Wisconsin.
Staying true to the original concept, CliC's front magnetic connection ensures your glasses will never leave your sight (pun intended). They comfortably hang around your neck, which makes them nearly impossible to misplace.
Is it time for readers?
If you find yourself looking at a book, text or recipe up close, and then adjusting the distance multiple times so the words come in to focus, it is probably time for you to purchase or update your readers.
And although we recognize that aging has its hindrances, reading glasses doesn't have to be one of them. CliC Readers are arguably the most convenient, comfortable readers available. Not convinced, purchase a pair and see for yourself. With CliC, exchanges and returns are always free, so you have nothing to worry about.
What magnification do I need?
Our CliC Magnetic Readers lenses are rated in diopters which is the industry standard for opticians. Diopters are the power rating of the reading lenses. With every power option, or “diopter”, there is a sweet spot of sorts where your close vision is brought more into sharp focus.
This distance varies from person to person so if the diopter is too weak for you, you will need to move the thing you are reading farther away from your face to see it clearly. If the diopter is too strong, that sweet spot will be closer than you prefer.
Did you know that the average person reads material between 14-18 inches away from their face? So if you want to restore that comfortable reading range, find a diopter that sharpens your focus in this distance. However, if you want your reading glasses to be useful when viewing your computer screen, that range would be 24 inches so the diopter of the CliC magnetic readers should be weaker.
What is presbyopia?
Everyone's body changes as they age, and your eyes are no exception. When you are young, the lens inside your eye (located behind the iris and pupil) is quite flexible, and it flexes as you look at close objects. This flexing is really your eyes way of accommodating you to change focus quickly, at many different ranges. Over time the lens becomes less flexible (like most of our body) and becomes rigid, no longer allowing your eyes to accommodate near vision. This condition (of the lens becoming rigid) is known as presbyopia.
Thankfully, this condition can easily be corrected by using non-prescription reading glasses, like CliC's. If your vision is otherwise good, the appropriate strength readers will help compensate the increased rigidness of your lens. The glasses lens will correct diminished vision and aid in focusing on up-close objects, such as words in a book, text messages or smartphone reading.
*The lack of flexibility in the lens causes of presbyopia, which leads to the need for reading glasses.
