LOS ALTOS, Calif. , July 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ThinOptics, which engineered the world’s thinnest reading glasses that are always with you, today announced the launch of their second generation; the stylish and elegant Frontpage Collection. Weighing in at 9g, they are the lightest full-frame reading glasses, and paired with a 4mm aircraft aluminum case that can slip into a pocket, or attach to the back of a phone, tablet, laptop or e-reader. The Frontpage Collection comes in two styles - the ovular Manhattan and the rectangular Brooklyn, and in a multitude of colors and strengths.

In this smartphone era, customers need glasses dozens of times a day, and find themselves frustrated when their traditional glasses are out of reach. ThinOptics glasses are designed to be always within reach, eliminating the angst of losing glasses. The Frontpage Collection is the product of 18-months of tireless material science and computational engineering. The patented result is the lightest and slimmest possible reading glass still able to deliver an optometry range of 1.5 – 2.5x magnification diopters.

“When a NY customer told us he yearned for glasses that would enable him to read the Sunday Times from frontpage to backpage, we went to work. The Frontpage Collection was designed for our customers to consume hours of content in a single stretch with the comfort and within-reach portability that has come to define ThinOptics as a brand,” said David Westendorf, CEO of ThinOptics. “Nearly every ThinOptics employee wears glasses. We believe this gives us a better understanding of the frustration that comes from breaking and scratching lenses or searching for a lost pair. We deeply empathize with our customers, and understand their needs.”

The new line is currently available today at ThinOptics.com and will be available at Amazon in August. The line retails for $49.88, including the companion case.
