Elegantly casual and refined, this John Varvatos folding reader is a marvel in innovation and lense technology. The reader showcases high-tech “Transitions” lenses that smartly darken when exposed to the UV light outdoors. In order to save space and travel easily from home to office, the temples feature a clever telescoping design that allows the temples to retract. The temples then fold in on the lenses as the lenses fold together at the bridge. The compact folded style fits securely in a soft leather mini-case.

Frame made in Japan.

    I like these readers very much. all hinges are smooth, the finish is beautiful, the arms slide solidly. A very well crafted piece.

    Was given these as a gift and they're perfect. I had no idea they darkened when outside which only added to my delight. Classy look and easy to carry.
