Been looking for a decent reading light since Year Dot? Well look no more!
If you’ve found that you need to stretch your arm out to see things closely or stand by a window to read small-print then you’re probably a member of the 50 Plus Club! Reduced reading vision really is a pain! Trying to read a text message on your phone while holding it further and further away is no mean feat. As we age the lens in our eyes becomes more and more inflexible and so it’s harder to see things clearly when they’re close. We also need more light!
A Reading Light?
To be honest you may only be in your early forties, as depending on your eyesight, poor close vision happens earlier for some people.
Now I’m as blind as that proverbial bat and my arm hasn’t been long enough for simply aeons. I’ve worn glasses since I was 5 and contact lenses since I was 16. I’m now the grand old age of 56, wear multi-focal contact lenses and varifocal glasses. I also have reading glasses to pop over my contacts if there’s really small print or if it’s getting dark.
The thing is there comes a point where your arms just can’t get any longer and I reached that point about 10 years ago.
Your vision is one of the first things that changes as you age. I noticed it first when I started finding it difficult seeing in the evenings and driving in the dark. Reduced night vision is almost inevitable as your eyes get older. There’s not a massive amount you can do about it but seeing an optician and making sure you’re wearing the right glasses is the first thing you need to do. The next thing is pretty much a no-brainer too. get a decent reading light.
Serious Readers Reading Light
I love reading and even though I have a backlit Paperlight Kindle, there are still times when I’m reading the paper or a paperback, when I need a reading light. I made do for ages with one of those uplighters with a bendy arm which I could direct over whatever I was reading. No more faffing around with lights that don’t always hit the mark for me though. Of late I’ve picked up one of those Serious Readers lights and I wish I’d done it before.
Buying a reading light from Serious Readers is not like buying any old light from a shop. It’s investing in your comfort and making life easier for yourself. No more headaches and eyestrain! Yes they are more expensive than other reading lights but once you’ve tried one you’ll get what I mean. The company are so confident that you’ll like their lights that they offer a 30 day trial. If you don’t like it then send it back and forget all about it. 98 out of every 100 people who do buy a Serious Readers light though, decide to hang onto the product. Honestly the sharpness and crispness of words on a page on a dark evening make this purchase well worth the investment.
We have a lightweight Alex reading light and went for that one as it has a lightweight base so I can move it around easily if I need to. It arrived packaged really carefully and all in one piece. No putting together, it really is open the box, lift the light out, plug it in and use. Buy one, you won’t regret it I can guarantee!
