Once upon a time, a pair of reading glasses were meant for just that: reading. Nowadays, we put our peepers through a lot more, like hours of staring at our computers and smartphones. High-end readers with bells and whistles like blue light blocking and anti-glare coatings cost a fortune — and basic drugstore readers are, well, basic.
Prive Revaux glasses bridge that divide between your grandma’s readers and the stylish specs that bleed your budget. The proof is in the pudding: Celebrities swear by them — in fact, actor Jaime Foxx helped create these next-level glasses! And today on QVC, you can score a set of two, the Prive Revaux Dynamic Duo Blue Light Readers, for 33 percent off their already affordable price. If you’re new to QVC, you can take an extra $10 off with code OFFER.
“You can put those on and feel like you’re ready to take on the world,” Foxx told QVC in his usual charismatic tone. But guess what? He’s right on point. Prive Revaux Blue Light Readers are the ultimate luxury glasses at an affordable price — and that’s when they’re full price. At just $40 for a set of two, you’re saving $20 on top of that. And in true QVC fashion, you can choose to pay in four interest-free payments of $10, if you’d like.
Just take a look at these beauties. They can easily be mistaken for designer frames — choose among square or cat-eye shapes and 12 colors. You’d easily pay well into the mid to high hundreds for styles like this. But it’s what’s inside that really counts: lenses that not only come in magnifications from 0 to 3.5 but also feature a boatload of advanced technologies.
Let’s start with the blue light blocking. Blue light is what your computer, tablet and smartphone emits, and it’s what’s to blame for your headaches, eye strain and blurry vision after hours on Zoom calls and who-knows-how-long you’re spending texting, emailing and cruising the web.
About 65 percent of Americans complain of eye strain, put Prive Revaux’s blue light coating keeps that sleep-disrupting glow at bay. Ordinarily, you’d pay dearly for this feature on its own.
These readers have a bunch of other exciting extras, too. They’re glare-resistant and, like your sunnies, they have UVA and UVB coatings, so they protect your eyes from solar damage when you’re outside. Prive Revauxs are scratch-resistant, too, so if you forget to pop them back into their hard-coated case or their soft microfiber case — both are included in this deal — they’re less likely to get damaged. And we all know how annoying those vision-blurring scratches are to fix. Let’s be honest; they’re the bane of your existence!
And then there’s the style. There’s a reason Foxx brags about his famous friends donning these readers in real life and on the red carpet. Which celebs, you ask? Foxx isn’t allowed to say their actual names yet, but he jokes that peeps like “George Hooney and Jennifer Popez, you fill in the blanks.” Oh, Jaime!
Sold in pairs, you can choose between the following: a classic black (Foxx’s faves) and a brown tortoise; a slate and a blue tortoise; a cranberry and tortoise multicolor, a mint tortoise with a brown front and a clear, and a cinnamon and a nude tortoise. Watch this video to see them in action.
Literally whatever your style, there’s a set for you. And they’re spring-loaded — another feature you’d pay extra for — so they conform to your face and won’t slide down. A blessing, if you ask us.
Prive Revaux Dynamic Duo Blue Light Readers are also intended for every level of vision. They start at 0 for anyone who wants to wear them for style alone, but the magnification comes in levels 0.5 to 3.5. As we all know about prescription glasses, the stronger the magnification you need, the higher the price. But Prive Revauxs are the same price no matter the strength.
Consider these glasses “outfit completers,” or a stylish accessory you can pop on when you just can’t deal with putting on makeup. As Foxx says, “We’re bringing sexy back to readers, and at the same time protecting those eyes. That eye is a muscle as well and these are the glasses to protect it. And you’re looking good as well. You can look good at home when you’re quarantining!”
You can also save a ton of cash. Pick up Prive Revaux Dynamic Duo of Blue Light Readers while supplies last, because they’re selling out fast — and this deal ends at midnight!
