My Mum wears glasses for reading and using the computer but she is forever losing them! She forgets where she has put them down and then can’t find them when she needs them….but not any more though! She was sent a free pair of TEYES London Readers to review from Magneteyes and she now wears them round her neck when not in use and then she knows exactly where they are when she needs them!
Magneteyes are a London based company that has has been in the business of selling magnetic front connection glasses in the UK for over 10 years! They now manufacture their own ‘TEYES’ (pronounced “Ties”) brand of ultra-lightweight front connection glasses here in the UK and you can buy them on their website www.magneteyes.co.uk.
Their aim is to bring a new level of quality to the magnetic eye wear market at a reasonable price….. each pair of reading glasses is just £34.99 with free delivery and if you would prefer the glasses as prescription glasses then they are from £49.99 with free delivery.
TEYES frames are made from extremely strong, eco-friendly materials (Rilsan® Clear) so will not break even if you tie the head band into a knot!
TEYES frames weigh only 11 grams which is less than the weight of 2 sheets of standard A4 paper. They are pleased to be able to manufacture the lightest front connection frame on the market! Their motto is ‘Forget you’re wearing glasses, not where you put them!’
TEYES glasses magnetically fasten across the bridge of the nose. When not in use they hang conveniently around your neck using a slim headband.
TEYES are made with a patent pending screwless system which means that if you buy a couple of pairs of their glasses you can mix and match colours to change and personalise your TEYES.
They are available in Red, Black, Blue, Clear and White.
When I was offered the opportunity to get these glasses for my mum to review I was so pleased as I knew she would love them. I wasn’t wrong either ….she thinks they are fantastic! She loves that she can wear them when she needs to and then when she doesn’t she can just let them hang around her neck. She decided to have the red framed glasses sent to her as she wanted something a bit different! Normally she would have gone for a plain black colour but she fancied the vibrant red glasses for a change. 🙂
Here are the measurements for the TEYES –
Outside Frame Width: 152mm (6ins)
Inside Frame Width: 140mm (5 ½ ins)
Horizontal lens: 54mm (2 ¼ ins)
Vertical Lens: 40mm (1 ½ ins)
NoseBridge: 19mm (3/4ins)
Temple Depth: Standard side arms: 190mm to 204 mm (7 ½ ins – 8 ins)
Long side arms: 200mm – 210mm (7 ¾ – 8 ½ ins)
The TEYES are more money than the reading glasses that she normally buys but until now what was the point in her investing in a nice pair of reading glasses when she always loses them?! With the TEYES London Readers she is less likely to lose them so then she wouldn’t mind treating herself in the future to a nice pair of TEYES fashionable glasses that are light-weight and easy to wear. She’s very lucky though because they kindly gifted her this pair for review so she could try them out. Thank you Magneteyes!
I think it is great that you can also have the TEYES made up with prescription lenses because they work out very affordable starting at just £49.99 including delivery for a pair of prescription glasses! (Please note that they can fill most single vision prescriptions for the low price of £49.99 including the frame. However if your prescription requires more complicated lenses then they will contact you to let you know the extra charge.) With their prescription glasses you also have the option of paying extra to have an anti-scratch coating or an anti-reflective coating. (£15 each coating or both the coatings for £25).
The video below shows you how the glasses are worn and why they are so unique. My mum has been wearing hers at work and everyone has commented on how much they like them. The lenses are larger than her normal reading glasses which is good because it gives her a better reading view. The bold red colour means that her glasses haven’t gone unnoticed and she is happy about that. When you have a great pair of new glasses like these you want people to notice! 😀
Also you know that they are a great British brand when you hear that their glasses have been used in the Ab Fab movie! Claudia Bing played by Celia Imrie wore a pair of sky blue TEYES in the film. How fantastic is that!
