read on presents ‘read on light’
the ultimate foldable reading glasses design ultra light, ultra slim, and ultra colourful!

read on, a Swiss reading glasses design company at the forefront of eyewear innovation, is proud to announce the launch of its latest innovation: ‘read on light’ – ultra-thin, lightweight and highly flexible reading glasses, made of a high-quality, skin-friendly eyewear material (TR90). At only three millimetres, ‘read on light’ is one of the thinnest reading glasses on the market and offers the most colourful, contemporary eye-catching style – and practical, functional design.

‘read on’ was founded by Sandra Kaufmann and Monika Fink, eyewear innovators who established the fashionable Swiss eyewear brand ‘Sol Sol Ito’ and have won a number of prestigious design awards, including the German Design Award, the Good Design Award and most recently, the Red Dot Design Award. Three years ago, the team launched their first reading glasses product: slim, foldable reading glasses which fit neatly inside a smartphone case.
