Hip reading glasses company Scojo, based in Brooklyn, has a slew of great-looking new frames (most $40-$50), all with the latest technology. Find them in optical shops, Saks, Bergdorfs, and on their website. Their website has this rough estimate for what power reading glasses you may need (though an eye exam is always the best way to go). "Take your age and subtract 35 and then put a decimal point in between the two figures and round up to the nearest 0 or 5. For example, if you are 50, subtract 35 which equals 15 then put a decimal point in between the 1 and 5 so your power is a +1.5. If you are 47, subtract 35 that equals 12 or 1.2. Round to +1.0."
