Reading glasses can get scratched, broken, or left behind during a trip, and replacing them on the road can be an expensive hassle. But Pocket Peepers are so friendly to your wallet in fact, thats where you stash them. Theyre about the size of a credit card, with a large viewing area thats an actual reading lens, not just a magnifier. They come in a one-size-fits-all strength that corrects the users vision from +1.25 to +2.50 depending on how far you hold them from your eyes, and they are available in 25 designs, from businesslike black to blinged-out versions studded with Swarovski crystals. They cost $9.95-$12.95, so you can afford to tuck an extra one inside your bag, just in case. Buy them online at pocketpeepers.com or by calling 866-973-3737.
Good to go
