Kanda’s modern design for fold-flat reading glasses is a marvel of Japanese innovation and simplicity. The four-position adjustable nose bridge ensures a perfect fit, and the sleek metal frame is built to last.

Available in a wide range of powers, these glasses have slim, lightweight, distortion-free lenses with a scratch-resistant coating.

The Slimfold III has a slightly deeper and wider design than the Slimfold I, making it ideal for average to wider facial features.

Keep your Slimfold reading glasses safe and secure in the custom brushed aluminum case that is just a quarter-inch thick—thin enough to fit anywhere, including a tiny purse or a back pocket.

    Slimfold III Single Vision Half Frame

    I have been wearing this brand of reading glasses over 20 some odd years. Replacing about every 2 to 3 years. They are great glasses can go anywhere, all purchased from Reading Glasses to Go. Use to go to the shop on Lovers Lane in Dallas, now it is easy to order on line, and have them shipped. Glasses hold up very well. Good Value.

    Customer service.

    I have owned 2 pair of the Slim fold III glasses starting some 30 years ago. I talked to customer service today about obtaining 2 replacement springs that I will replace myself because over time these tend to get weak as any spring will. I was told that Kanda will NOT let me purchase these springs. I am talking about the price for these at probably $5.00 pr. Terrible customer support
    Staff Response:

    Kanda is the manufacturer. Their exclusive distributor requires all repairs to be made by them. We cannot just order parts, but we have found the most reasonable.

    Loose screw

    I have had several pair for over twenty years. Very satisfied. Only issue is the screw which has to be repeatedly tightened.

    great convenience and design. too small

    i take them everywhere and use them more than any other pair of glasses. My only complaint is that they are too narrow for my face. When I purchased they ad said they would fit a wider face, these definitely do not.

    Geat glasses

    These fit well and are very clear. They are as comfortable as non-foldable glasses. Reccomend highly.
