Eyebobs at New London Pharmacy

Oh, the Joys of Aging!

Every 8 seconds, someone turns 40. Eyes over the age of 40 begin to lose their flexibility which makes focusing at close range more difficult. No, you don’t need longer arms, more light or a menu written in larger type. It’s called presbyopia, and no amount of diet, exercise, cryogenics or experimental youth potion will stave off this condition. We hate to break it to you, but reading glasses are inevitable.

New London Pharmacy is thrilled to be able to offer you these fabulous and fashion friendly eyeglasses from eyebobs. Made of top grade Italian Plastics, eyebobs are your perfect chance to make an amazing first impression. 

There’s an eyebobs style to suit every mood, from cool and classic to big, bold and bright. We’ve got sunreaders to keep you looking stylish while reading outdoors. You can even convert your eyebobs into prescription eyewear. There are a few styles available on our site, but come visit us in-store to see our full selection and let us help you pick the perfect frame or frames to suit your face and style.

They feature:
  • Top grade Italian plastics
  • Long, straight temples that allow eyebobs to sit either up or down the nose
  • Flexible hinges to keep frames comfortably in place
  • Optical quality frames that allow eyebobs to be adjusted for a personalized fit (or fit with prescription lenses) 
  • Protective cases keep eyebobs safe when not in use -You will receive a complimentary case with each frame you purchase.

Please contact us with questions regarding warranty repair or replacement

What kind of materials do eyebobs use? 

Italian block acetate (zyl): This is the type of plastic we use to make nearly all of their frames. Laminated acetate frames have layers of colors that can be lasered for a multi-colored, “stacked” effect. Italian block acetate is not injection molded, rather every frame is hand-made. This is the good stuff, people! If you want color, acetate is your material. 

Bamboo: eyebobs bamboo reading glasses are a chic and eco-friendly option. The temples are hand carved from sustainable bamboo. Because bamboo is a natural material, the temples cannot be adjusted like our other frames. Attempting to adjust or bend these temples could cause the bamboo to split or break. They have given them a bit of curve for a more comfortable fit. Adjustments shouldn’t be necessary. 

Aluminum: The aluminum series is a great choice for those looking for a sleek, lightweight and hypo-allergenic option. This series features adjustable nosepads for a comfortable fit.

Flocked Finish: This collection will flock your socks off! Frames with brilliantly colored flocked fronts with lightweight nylon temples are lightweight, comfortable and seriously stylish. Like their other frames, eyebobs flocked collection can be converted to prescription eyewear by a qualified optician. Just make sure they “cold pop” the lenses. The lenses should be removed without heat to preserve the yummy richness of the finish.

How do I choose the right magnification?

To find your ideal magnification, hold this printed eye chart 14 inches from your face. You can wear corrective contacts if you have them, but no glasses – that’s cheating! Start reading at the top line and work your way down. The first line that appears blurry will have your ideal magnification listed to the left. Print your chart here.
