It’s hard to find a pair of reading glasses that you might describe as “cool,” but Look Optic, a company we learned about earlier this year, has risen to the challenge. As we wrote back in March, the start-up sells full-frame reading glasses for $68 each, and, according to New York Magazine managing editor Ann Clarke, who tested the frames for us, they’re totally solid. “They’re not lighter, they are not heavier, they just fit me well, and they don’t tip to one side,” like cheaper readers from the drugstore might, she explained at the time, adding, “and now they’re my go-to glasses.”
If you’ve been wanting to give these sturdy yet stylish readers a try, but have been put off by the relatively high price, now’s your chance. All three styles (the Sullivan, the Bond, and the Abbey) of Look Optic’s rarely-on-sale readers are 20 percent off in an exclusive deal for Strategist readers only — as are Look Optic’s sun readers, which have tinted lenses, and screen readers, which come with blue-light protection. Plus, shipping is free. Just use code STRATLOOK at checkout.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best women’s jeans, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, ultra-flattering pants, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
