Smartphone Reading Glasses

Many of us have to use reading glasses to use our smartphones, but get frustrated trying to keep track of where you used them last.

The got rid of the arms and you just clip them onto your nose, making them thin enough to be stored in the case of your smartphone.

The cases work with iPhone or Galaxy phones directly or you can get the universal add-on pad for just about any case.
